Popular torture-tester JerryRigEverything is back at it again, and this time he's with an LG G6. This flagship phone has just been made official not so long ago and it is clearly advertised as a rival to the popular smartphone flagship products such as Samsung's S8. Nonetheless, with the newly released torture test, LG proves that its latest smartphone can compete with any mobile phone on the market when it comes to durability.
Upon the first test which is the display scratch test, the LG G6 is proven to be on par with most high-end smartphones. Apparently, the said phone scratched at a level-6 sharpness, just like most premium phones. This means that regular rubbing with objects like keys won't damage the LG G6's display. The phone's whole body is also pretty safe from scratch damage. The entire front is made of glass so even its camera is safe from scratches.
At the rear, the LG G6 is likewise scratch resistant, except for the fingerprint scanner. Nevertheless, while JerryRigEverything was able to do a major scratching on the scanner, it still works like brand new, detecting fingerprints like a scratch-free sensor.
As for the flame test, the LG G6's display proves to be a little more prone to burns than its direct rivals. Most premium phones start burning with an 8-second contact with flame. Others even last as long as 15 seconds. The LG G6, on the other hand, started showing a black spot at a 6-second mark, making it a little more vulnerable to heating than other phones. Nevertheless, the black spot disappears as soon as the flame is turned down, just like most phones.
As for the bend test, the LG G6 proves to be a very sturdy phone that's practically unbendable. Bending the phone from the back or from the front shows almost zero flex. This means that overall, there is no question as to how durable the LG G6 is. It survives scratches, burns and even strong bends.
