Note 7 torture chamber: Gorilla Glass 5 scratching, bend test, S Pen backwards

Note 7 torture chamber: Gorilla Glass 5 scratch test, S Pen backward insertion
The Note 7 already got dropped on concrete and hammered on, but will it blend? Rhetorical question, as now it's time for some more scratching, bending, and other assorted medieval activities executed over the Note 7's unsuspecting chassis.

This is the first phone with the newest Gorilla Glass 5 edition, after all, and Corning says that according to its testing the gear protected with the hardened glass will survive shoulder-height drops without cracking significantly in 80% of the cases. While this was somewhat confirmed already for the Note 7, how about we scratch those tough GG5 layers on the front and rear of the device. 

That's exactly what's happening in the video below, and as a bonus the guy is also peeling the skin off the new S Pen, and trying to recreate the Pen-gate from last year by trying to insert it backwards to no avail. Check it out.
