Ouch! The Galaxy Note 8 gets scratched, burned, and bent on video

24


YouTuber JerryRigEverything is popular for his tasking durability tests that a multitude of smartphones have passed with flying colors though some have provided a shameful display. 

And, of course, with the Note 8 being one of the hottest devices of the past few weeks (on par with the LG V30) it's only natural to see that Samsung's latest S Pen handset receive the JerryRIgEverything treatment on video. 

As usual, a scratch, burn, and bend tests get demonstrated and, spoiler alert, the Note 8 passes all these fairly well. It would seem Samsung has made sure the Note 8 has no weak points, and even that it is chockful with sensors and various port openings, it hardly budges during the bend test, which is the norm for a well-built contemporary device.

Check out the video at the top and drop a line with your thoughts on the Note 8's durability.
