    My S7 Edge fell inside my car and screen cracked.. a lot.. instead of spending $300 on a screen replacement, i bought a Nokia 6.1 (4Gb-64GB version) for 200 and still satisfied. I accidentally missed my pocket and it fell on the bathroom floor, only a small barely visible dent on the chassis. So yes, this CNC-machined chassis has some good engineering put into it. And after i downloaded another camera app that has better picture editing options, i cannot say any bad word for it. Glad to see i am using an award winner. Nokia truly delivers.

    After seeing your Kyocera Duraforce 2 test, I made a note in one of my notebooks. I had been looking for a replacement for my iPhone 8. I had just payed off my phone and bought the Kyocera, It is supposed to show up tomorrow. Hopefully a phone that can actually survive my lifestyle. Thank you Jerry!

    Well on the S9 for example the back glass may be much cheaper but the screen replacement is much harder and more expensive.
    So in comparison to Apple I actually prefer a easier repairable screen than a easy accessible glass back...

    I was using the Samsung Galaxy s8 until december 2018, when i decided to buy myself the iphone xs max. i wasn't interested in iphones before the iphone x released, and i'm not disappointed in the iphone xs max. i bought myself the mous case and applied their screen protector because i dont want to lose money, but i personally think that iOs is superior to samsungs android software. after just 1.5 years of using the s8, the battery lasted for like 2 hours of screentime, which is a bit less than my daily travel to work and back when measured in time, it got kinda slow and sometimes just shut down without any particular reason. still think that its kinda weird that it started when the s9 was announced and the warranty expired. up until now, i dont regret buying the iphone as i said, but i guess only time will tell if im staying with apple products.

    Actually, I watched almost all of your videos.. But honestly I'm still curious about Oppo R5 durability.. Sure it's an out of date gadget, but it was the strongest thinest mobile phone ever built.. You can smash it to the iceberg or put it on the floor and hit it by your car and it still doing fine.. So Jerry, can you please test the legendary skinny R5?
