Huawei Mate 20 Pro is one of a few decent premium handsets of the market. It not only looks gorgeous but also impresses you with its features. One of the unique features of this device includes the reverse wireless charging that helps in charging other phones, however, the tech is reportedly not practical for daily use. Well, this is one of a few virtues of Huawei Mate 20 Pro that impresses you. And, the triple rear cameras need no introduction as the company was the first to employ it on the P20 Pro.
Keeping its beauty, functionality, and performance aside, we would like to see how it combats when some harsh tests are applied to it. Well, practically, no one would want to ruin their newly bought phone, but it’s a good test to note if the phone can survive day to day wear and tears, which we sure it can but until what level.
The famous YouTuber JerryRigEverything conducts his series of durability tests on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro in order to let you know about its endurance.
The series starts from the scratch test where the device starts showing the scratches at the level 6 and deeper grooves at level 7 just like most of the smartphones. The textured back panel of the phone, however, it didn’t show any scratch which is a pretty cool thing.
In the bend test, the device’s display shattered in the very first flex. This is unusual compared to the other phones tested before. In fact, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is even showing the mark after the burn test. The YouTuber recalls that the predecessor Mate 10 Pro, which had a flat screen, passed the bend test easily. However, he also stresses the fact that the scratches made during the scratch test are also responsible for the screen to get shattered in the bend test. But, one has to note that all the phones are tested using the same picks and they don’t obliterate so easily. However, even after so much ruin, the display touch is just working fine. But, the big harm is done to fingerprint scanner which stops working after getting scratched.
