See the Galaxy Note 8 scratched, burnt, bent in an array of entertaining tests

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was subject this week to the inexplicably popular master of smartphone destruction JerryRigEverything. This $1000 phone is scratched with an array of gradually-harder tools made for scratching. The Galaxy Note 8 is burned with a lighter. This phone is bent back and forth with excessive force. All in the name of entertainment.

At this point it should be clear that I personally consider the tests JerryRigEverything runs to be entertainment in a fairly strict sense. His tests are somewhere between everyday use and scientific. These tests are right in the place where it's fun to watch, but the end product is somewhat compromised.

Every once in a while there's a super interesting tidbit found by wracking and wrenching on a smartphone – like a device that cracks at the slightest turn. Or a phone that's discovered to engulf itself in flame when the heat test is run. But the Galaxy Note 8 isn't one of these phones. This device seems to withstand Jerry's obstacle course pretty well.

Scratches and the possibility of a crack due to a drop might be in order. If we've gotten completely careless, maybe we'll see how the device reacts to being accidentally dropped into a campfire? That'll be the real test, boy howdy.
