It is not accidental that many people think that folding screen smartphones are not durable. They claim that the phone consists of two parts so it is easy to break/bend. Furthermore, Samsung and Huawei, the pioneers in the field, have delayed their first folding phones several times, because of hinge problems. And although currently, there are no existing models with such problems, but users are worried about the wear of the machine body and the durability of the mechanical structure.
What’s special about Huawei Mate X2 phone?
To understand how durable the Huawei Mate X2 is, a famous YouTuber JerryRigEverything conducted a robust durability test on the Mate X2 from scratching, burning to bending…
The first is the screen scratch resistance test. The results show that the external screen of Huawei Mate X2 surpasses level 6 in the Mohs hardness scale. The screen began to scratch more heavily at 7, but metal components such as the frame or physical buttons of the Mate X2 were scratched in this test. The screen inside has a worse performance. It was scratched at level 2 and appeared more deeply scratched at level 3.
Next is the screen fire, when on fire, the Mate X2’s external screen withstands heat for about 25 seconds before it goes black. The screen inside can only withstand about 10 seconds. Even, the Mate X2 was sprinkled with sand on the folds of the screen, but the device was unharmed.
Finally, the most extreme challenge is to bend the phone. YouTuber JerryRigEverything used all his strength to intentionally bend a strong force on the Mate X2 to the back, but surprisingly, the device was unharmed. This may be due to the more stable hinge system.
The hinge system of the Huawei Mate X2 uses a variety of special materials and special manufacturing processes, including the use of zirconium-based metals as well as the introduction of super-strong steel for the first time. This material can prevent impact and not deform. This phone also uses B composite material and carbon fiber to ensure high durability while ensuring the overall lightness of the device.
Huawei Mate X2 has a similar way of working as Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Fold 2 in terms of folding mechanism, which is to open to the sides like a book with an 8-inch main OLED screen (2,480 x 2,200 pixels). and a 6.45-inch (2700 x 1160 pixels) secondary screen.
In fact, the Mate X2 has solved a number of problems that Samsung has not been able to solve on the Galaxy Z Fold2. Specifically, if the Z Fold2 when folded still leaves a small slot, then Huawei says that the Mate X2 can fold completely. In addition, the main screen of the Mate X2 also has a crease in the middle, similar to the Z Fold2. However, Huawei says that wrinkles will be more difficult to notice because it is folded in the form of a ripple, instead of a straight concave like the Z Fold2.
Despite such advantages, the Mate X2 also has a few disadvantages compared to the Z Fold2. Besides the screen has a refresh rate of only 90Hz (compared to 120Hz of the Z Fold2), the Mate X2 also does not have a selfie camera in the inner screen. This is relatively inconvenient when users take selfies or video calls forcing them to use the small screen outside.
