The durability of a smartphone is extremely important when it comes to operating a gadget in everyday life. When choosing a device, we rarely think about how durable it is. And the popular YouTube user JerryRigEverything will help us figure this out. He shared a list of smartphones in 2019 that won in various nominations, among them: the most maintainable smartphone, the least maintainable, the most innovative, the most beautiful inside, the least resistant and the most durable.
Determined the most durable smartphone in early 2020
The most repairable phone was the Google Pixel 3a. The smartphone makes it easy to replace the display, it will take the owner of the phone no more than 5 minutes. The least repairable are the Royale Flexpai and the company's smartphones Apple. Flexpai is a flexible tablet and the easiest way to throw it away if it breaks. In the case of devices Apple, the situation is a little more complicated. The company's new smartphones can be repaired, but all this will cost a lot of money. It's easy enough to replace the screen, however issues can arise with the rear glass panel, which costs $ 599 to replace with iPhone 11 Pro Max. The company uses non-standard screws in the devices, which also complicates the process.
The most innovative phones are the Nubia Z20, Blackview Max 1 and Galaxy Fold. The former has a second screen on the back, the Max 1 has a projector for watching movies and videos, and the Galaxy Fold is just a great foldable smartphone, and it's also quite durable. The author of the channel praised the device for its excellent stable folding mechanism. The most beautiful inside was the Galaxy A80. And all thanks to the automatic mechanism of the retractable camera block – the process of appearing and hiding the block looks excitingly complicated in technical terms.
So, we move on to the most important thing – the least durable smartphone. It turned out to be Xiaomi Redmi Note 7. With a slight movement of his hands, the author of the channel was able to break the device, almost completely dividing it into two separate pieces. This is the worst indicator of all smartphones in 2019, so the owners of this phone should treat it more carefully. The other least durable is the Googe Pixel 4. It is certainly more durable than the Note 7, but the price tag is high, and you won't get enough strength and quality.
Most rugged smartphone – Google Pixel 3a. Just take a look at how flexible the case is in the device:
Google Pixel 3a is the most rugged smartphone of 2019
After this, the screen remained intact, and the device did not lose anything functionally. Thus, we get that in 2019 Google Pixel 3a is the most maintainable and durable smartphone on the market. In addition, it is one of the best options in terms of value for money. On Ebay, the device can be purchased from 20-25 thousand rubles, for this money you will receive a clean Android with frequent updates, one of the best cameras on the market, high-quality OLED – a display with Always On Display . By the way, Asahi Dragontrail Glass, which protects the phone from the front, could play a significant role in good durability. It is probably more flexible than the usual Gorilla Glass.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 670 processor, is equipped with 4 gigabytes of RAM and 64 gigabytes of internal memory, HDR10 support and a 3000 mAh battery. Let's evaluate the quality of the images that can be obtained with this unit:
Many modern phones, like the iPhone 11 Pro or Galaxy Note 10, offer multiple cameras, many different features, but the Pixel 3a is much simpler. There is only one camera here, but due to the correct processing of the photos, the final result is simply amazing in its quality. We offer to discuss the smartphone camera in Telegram.
Smartphones will get harder
With the advent of foldable smartphones, the cost of repairing gadgets will increase significantly. And so far there is nothing to be done about this, because flexible phones are complex in terms of design, they have complex mechanisms. Plus, in the Galaxy Fold 2, Samsung will use glass instead of plastic to protect the display, which could result in even less drop resistance. Similar to the Pixel 3a, flexible polycarbonate is probably the most practical and convenient solution. It is not a pity to carry such a smartphone without a cover, simply because there is nothing to break there.
