The Samsung Galaxy S8 is very tough
Even though the device is essentially a metal plate sandwiched between two glass sheets, the Galaxy S8 is one tough technological sandwich. This is proven through the durability test shown in the video below.
Although the frame itself is prone to scratching, the rest of the smartphone remains intact. No harm came to the the Infinity Display under all that pressure. The backplate however isn’t so lucky.
Even in the burn test, the Galaxy S8 did fairly well. Under concentrated heat for 30 seconds did the Galaxy S8 show signs of blemishes, something which its predecessor managed only to get by for about 10 seconds.
