How does the BlackBerry Priv hold up under fire?
The first test was designed to measure the strength of the display. That test showed that the screen will hold up to keys and the change in your pocket, but an abrasive like sand could leave a permanent mark on the display. What might disappoint Priv buyers is the camera lens, which scratched when car keys were rubbed against it. While the plastic keys on the QWERTY did scratch (they are made from plastic, hello!), underneath them is a layer of rubber that keeps out dirt and grime.
When a flame was applied to the AMOLED screen, the pixels closed down, turning white. Once the flame was removed, the pixels turned back on and all was well. When the same test was done to the Nexus 6P, the pixels were permanently damaged.
The bend test was passed up because a slider, with two movable parts, is easier to bend. With the QWERTY pulled out, enough separation between the two parts of the phone was seen even when employing just two fingers to bend the unit. Priv users will have the slider shut most of the time though, so this isn't something to be terribly concerned about.
