Asus, last week, there were three different ROG Phone 5 introduced the model. Telephones Snapdragon 888 processor, UFS 3.1 fast storage and 16 GB RAM drew attention with the option. These features are also reflected in the prices. Telephones 799-It took its place on the shelves between 1299 Euros. However, it turned out that the high price and hardware were not reflected in the robustness. JerryRigEverything a YouTube channel named, Asus’un ROG Phone 5 made a robustness test on the model. Phone failed test…
ROG Phone 5 fails when it comes to ruggedness
The test starts with the screen. Asus on this model iPhone 12 and Galaxy S21 in his family Gorilla Glass Victus technology is using. Telephone, 6 Mohs It begins to scratch when it interacts with hard and hard objects. This is the maximum level of durability that today’s touch glasses can be. On the other hand, in the past, some phones have achieved higher levels of durability by using a sapphire screen instead of glass (HTC U Ultra).
The sim card tray draws attention in the durability test that continues with the frames. ROG Phone 5 a longer than normal pin comes out of the box. This means that if you lose the needle that came out of the box, what you have will not work.
Finally, it’s time for the bending test. The phone fails to pass this test, which many of its competitors survived. The front and rear glass of the model, which broke from the frame on the first move, shattered when it was forced a little harder. However, for the price of the phone, a situation emerges that will disappoint users.
Battery design is the cause of the weakness
Channel owner Zack Nelson, He makes two predictions about the break in the video. The first of these is the antenna line in the frame. Smartphone manufacturers add plastic antennas to the bezels for better signal transmission. This situation creates a weakness in the general structure. There have been some phones that broke for similar reasons in previous tests. The second reason is the dual battery design. This design, which is preferred for faster charging, causes another weak point in the design and this weak point causes breakage.
Test Pro or Ultra It is made to the standard model, not the version. Here are images from the test:
