Microsoft launched the Surface Duo, a foldable dual-screen smartphone that costs $ 1,400. Not a cheap price for a smartphone, but what if this expensive smartphone is bent?
Still the familiar JerryRigEverything endurance tests, and this time the victim was a Surface Duo. Whether a smartphone costs 1,400 USD can survive the “torture” of JerryRigEverything or not, let’s see the results in the video below.
The results of the scratch test come as no surprise, given that the Surface Duo is equipped with Gorilla Glass 5. Thanks to that, the scratches appear only after level 7, which means that the Surface Duo is capable of scratch resistance is quite good. But more surprising is in the bend test.
Surface Duo can be seen as a foldable smartphone with a rather fragile design. Compared to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2 or Huawei’s Mate X, the Surface Duo is a lot thinner.
Perhaps that’s why the Surface Duo easily bent in JerryRigEverything’s test. But despite the plastic frame, the smartphone is still not broken. The reason may be due to the metal hinge is quite sturdy.
However, you won’t want to leave this Surface Duo in your back pocket, if you don’t want to accidentally become the owner of the world’s first foldable, foldable smartphone. And the repair ability of the Surface Duo according to iFixit is only 2/10 points.
