Gadget Review – Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Bend Test
Alright, today we are going to do some stress
tests on the Galaxy Note 5. This phone is pretty much made out of the same basic materials
as the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge, so I am not going to do the same stress tests
that I did on those phones. You can watch those videos if you want to see how it handles
flame or scratches on the front or the back. In this video I am just going to see how scratch
resistant the camera lens is with my razor blade, and I am going to do a bend test as
As you can see I am taking my razor blade and sliding it along the glass, a bunch
of different angles on the lens. And it actually held up pretty darn well. The camera lens
is probably made out of the same tempered glass that the front and the back of the phone
are made out of. So it is pretty resistant to scratches, which is very nice.
So I am
doing to do this bend test in a couple different ways. First of which I am going to take my
hands and distribute the weight of the bend along the frame of the phone as well as the
screen and the back. So you can see me press on the screen of the phone here. And it actually
survives pretty well; it handles the pressure of my hands pretty well.
I am going to flip
it around still keeping the pressure along the frame of the screen to see how much that
can handle. Still pretty straight, screen is just fine, everything is still working
really well. So now I am going to take my hands and press more along the center of the
screen, to you know, put more pressure on the ‘guts’ of the phone. It looks like the
‘guts’ allow for a little bit of flex, but the frame definitely stays ridged along the
side of the phone.
I am going to try twisting it a little bit in my hands, just to see if
the frame can handle that torque motion, and everything looks good so far! You can see
that the phone is slightly warped, But there is no permanent damage. So I wouldn’t have
any problem putting this in my back pocket and sitting on it all day. Overall, pretty
satisfied with the build quality of this phone. It feels pretty solid in my hand.
the only problems that I have with this phone is that it just doesn’t have an SD card slot,
and doesn’t have a removable battery. Those are pretty important to me as a smart phone
user. Anyway! If you have any questions, be sure to leave them in the comments. Don’t
forget to like if this video was interesting, and don’t forget to subscribe! It does help
me out a lot.
Overall this phone held up WAY. Better than the HTC M9. That phone snapped
in half in my hands. Go ahead and click on this video if you want to check that out!
And don’t forget to check out my Instagram, I promise I do more fun things than JUST taking
apart cell phones.
Thanks for watching!.
