British Nothing Technology has finally officially announced the new “Nothing Phone (2)” smartphone. In Japan, it will be released on July 25, but the popular YouTuber who got it immediately ran a stress test and posted the results.
Zack Nelson of the YouTube channel “JerryRigEverything,” best known for checking out the durability of new smartphones, put together the Nothing Phone 2’s screen and housing through the usual tortures, such as scratch tests, burn tests, and bend tests. I’m putting you to the test.
Nelson first scratched the Nothing Phone (2) screen with a razor. Level 6 on the Mohs hardness scale (10 for diamond and 9 for sapphire and sapphire) is scratched and level 7 is deeply grooved. However, this is common with Gorilla Glass protected displays.
Both the front and back cameras are protected by glass and are not easily scratched. Notably, the area around the fingerprint sensor has been scratched a few times, but it still works fine. There are scratches on the sides of the case, but that’s probably due to the aluminum frame (4 on the Mohs hardness scale) not being solid.
Even after about 25 seconds of the burn test, the Nothing Phone (2) screen remains intact. Although the part that was hit by the flame was white, it was instantly recovered.
Finally, the bending test is the pinnacle. Nelson managed to bend the phone (2) twice from the left side, where the volume buttons are located, and it survived. And when I try to bend it from the right side, the power button comes up a bit, but the main body holds up without breaking.
Nelson does not say a word in this video. The title is “I Have Nothing 2 Say…”, which seems to be a joke associated with Nothing Phone (2).
