He was “exonerated” on the new LG V30 by JerryRigEverything as he took the device and handed it a series of “hard” tests, such as bending, burning and trying to “bang” withstand.
The Gorilla Glass 5, which protects the V30 screen, has suffered many scratches that rank it at Mohs 6 or 7. It protects the entire front (including the selfie camera) and the stereo speakers. The V30 wins has several compact points with great durability.
Almost everything on the side of the phone is made of hard metal (except the antenna belts.) This rigid metal easily passed the bending test.
