The poor Samsung Galaxy S6 has yet to be officially released and make its way into the hands of the masses, but in the meantime it has been subjected to a series of brutal tests ranging from drop tests, water tests, bend tests, and now thanks to YouTube channel JerryRigEverything, the Galaxy S6 has been subjected to a fire test as well.
Now given the volatility of lithium-ion batteries and their tendency to explode when damaged, safe to say that this fire test doesn’t sound like a good idea, but according to JerryRigEverything, it was mainly done to satisfy his curiosity but it is definitely not what we recommend you do at home. That being said in the test, the phone was held to the fire on its sides, back, and the display but it does not look like there was any major damage.
Obviously if the phone had exploded there’d probably be a very different video. JerryRigEverything also tested the Galaxy S6’s display by scratching a variety of objects against it, such as razor blades, screwdrivers, and keys but for the most part, the Galaxy S6’s display held its own so if you typically place your phone within your pocket with your keys, you can rest assured that it won’t be too banged up.
A bend test was also conducted in the video but no machine was used. Instead he tried bending the phone using his bare hands which doesn’t seem particularly scientific, but so far the phone has held its own pretty well so if you’re thinking about getting the Galaxy S6, you can rest assured knowing that it can take a beating, to a certain extent.
