The PBKReviews channel has conducted a test for the strength and durability of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. They staged a real durability test, when the smartphone was not only scratched, bent and drowned, but also thrown under the wheels of a car.
It was decided to start the test with a waterproof test, for which the Galaxy S22 Ultra was immersed in a small container of water. It survived the swim with honor for an hour and continued to work properly as if there was no attempt to drown it. Puncture testing has shown that the glass on the front of the Galaxy S22 Ultra is scratched when using a stick with a hardness level of 7 on the Mohs scale. On the back surface, barely noticeable scratches appeared after exposure to a tool with 8 hardness levels.
The metal frame of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra proved to be the best. On contact with the blade, the paint flakes off, but it does so reluctantly; and effort must be made to cause serious damage. The flagship performed well in the bending test. It was indestructible and remained unflappable when trying to bend it. But the stylus, with due effort, can be easily broken. At the end of the test on the smartphone, they decided to drive a car and did it twice. Under the wheels of a car, it survived and continued to work properly.
