The Razer Phone 2 is out and rolling for gamers who want to take portable gaming to the next level. More importantly, anyone wanting to grab the phone would want to know how durable it is and how it stands against daily wear and tear. Lucky for us “JerryRigEverything” has come up again with the durability tests.
First and foremost the phone itself is built rigidly overall with tempered Gorilla Glass 5 and an aluminium chassis. The huge dual front facing speaker grill is made up of plastic which is easily scratched and damaged. The fingerprint sensor did however absorbed a lot of scratches and still managed to function which is credible. The 120 Hz IPS panel had no difficulties with the burn test and the pixels recover immediately when the flame was removed. It was the bend test where the structure of the device shined absorbing all the force and giving off very minimal flex which is a definite improvement from its predecessor.
Overall the Razer Phone 2 passes the durability test with flying colours mostly because of its industrial design and thick metal frame.
