One of the famous YouTube channels - specialized in durability tests - Huawei P40 Pro has been subjected to a number of tests, such as: burning and bending, as well as scratching with sharp tools.
The JerryRigEverything channel, known as one of the most "extreme" channels in durability tests, got the Huawei P40 Pro, which is not sold in the United States in light of the US sanctions imposed on Huawei.
And JerryRigEverything started testing by scratching the screen that was able to withstand up to the sixth level of deliberate scratching with a sharp metal tool, and at the seventh level, scratches began to appear clearly on the screen.
And since the phone frame is made of aluminum with a layer, scratching it with a blade resulted in stripping off the colored layer only, while the back of the phone, which is also protected by glass, could bear the scratch using the blade, just like the front of the phone.
Although glass, unlike metal or plastic, is prone to breakage, JerryRigEverything's attempts to bend the device have been unsuccessful, similar to Huawei's recent flagship phones. And the glass protector of the front and back cameras succeeded in countering the scratching attempts with the blade, with the exception of the frame of the rear camera system made of aluminum, which was easily scratched.
As for the burning test, the Huawei P40 Pro was strong enough to withstand the deliberate burning of the screen, as the pixels on the screen recovered after being exposed to the flame for 30 seconds.
Impressive for the channel is the resilience of the fingerprint sensor under the screen after scratching with a sharp metal object, so that it was working without problems after the seventh level.
It is noteworthy that Huawei announced the phone (Huawei B40 Pro), along with my phone (Huawei B40) and (Huawei B40 Pro Plus) on March 26th.
