JerryRigEverything was infamously known for bending the lights out of a Nexus 6P back toward the end of last year. The reason behind the bend test failure was a design choice to use a dovetail joint to connect plastic parts to the Huawei handset’s aluminum frame.
Jerry is back with a scratch test and bend test of the Moto Z whose outcome didn’t disappoint. Motorola’s rigid and high-quality build is to thank for the phone’s survival of the bend test. While there definitely is a point of no return, Jerry was unable to reach it with his hands only.
The phone reaches a limit of how far it bends and always tries to keep its original shape, proving your Moto Z should not bend if you were to sit on it occasionally.
On the minus side, Jerry takes a razor to every material that is found on the Moto Z’s exterior. Many of the materials found on the exterior were easily scratched by the razor except the Gorilla Glass 4 front face. These materials included the metal frame, rear and front LED flash lenses, fingerprint scanner, camera hump and the back metal plate of the Moto Z as well.
The Moto Z is now available in the US alongside the Moto Z Force. Both phones are Droid editions and exclusive to Verizon in the US. You can check out our review of the Moto Z here as well.
I am impressed, was honestly expecting the Z to snap like a twig. Obviously jerry's tests are far more abusive than "usual tear and wear", but if a phone manages to survive the abuse you can rest easier knowing it won't bend, crack or scratch very ea...
Good Video and Nice Demonstration on durability, You might want to talk about Water Resistant qualities, Volume, and Brightness of display also sense You do such a nice job on durability. Thanks
It is NOT the world thinnest smartphone.
