It can withstand impacts but Corning's tests that via impacting the face (best case) of the glass and never the edges (weak) nor corners (weakest). If you are a person that is reasonable by the very least then you'll know that GG5 can be broken via side or corner impact. If you think that it's falsely advertised then blame Corning for GG5 being weak just look at the impact shown at your phone and you'll see the main impact point. Now if my X3 starts to crack while being placed in a table then I'll assure you that a class action lawsuit would follow.

The other were the ones owned by my friends and relatives which I can have direct access to whenever I want. I do like Xiaomi and I'm not going hide that but I do have valid reasons choosing them over others given their pricepoints. Myself and most of the people that I know that have knowledge of electronic repair values more hardware specs at given pricepoint which can easily be satisfied by phones manufactured by Xiaomi. I do smartphone repairs as a hobby, I even check teardowns even before purchasing the product and I can tell you that Xiaomi's the only one that can pack better cooling, GG5, better SoC at this pricepoint. If you managed to break that then it's your fault, the phone does not jump by itself nor any sane company honoring warranty for impact damage caused by negligence.
Did noticed anything in the list of the phones I prefer? None of them have AMOLED panels.

It's the comment afterall. My point is, if you have a faulty device then go towards the manufacturer because it's well within the warranty IF you can prove that it's not a user error. This phone has Gorilla Glass panel but it's not indestructible and you managed to break it due to fall. Does the phone jump towards the ground on its own? NO.

Why upgrade to GG5? Nobody scratches their phone with nail but people almost always drop it. If it can't survive 2ft fall then it's false advertising reveling use of cheap materials. And people should complain and whine..that's what improves products in future. They shouldn't just take it whatever the company throws at them. That's why we all here. I will not wag my tail like a good puppy.

You don't own this device. So stop defending. I am being cheated by the company and I will complain wherever I want and as much as I want. Ive wasted my money on this junk, you didn't.

As a consumer I have every right to complain if I am being cheated by the company. Even you agree that there are issues with this phone. Heating, fragile built, battery drain and low grade hardware. False advertising is scamming according to consumer protection law. I can't replace this piece of junk b'coz it broke and voided it's warranty. I bought it b'coz of this review and I'm letting GA and people know that all is not well. Isn't this the purpose of this comments section? Grow up.
Nice phone but few serious problems:
- screen backlight flickering even when auto brightness turned off, really annoying. Specially outdoors and in bright light. Can be reproduced when moving your hand around light sensor, so it should be fixed...
- bad 4G reception compared to other phones
- battery life really mediocre considering huge battery

I have this phone and if I am experiencing issues such as yours then GSMArena is the least of the place that I would go. I don't have such issues on my end.

The weakest point of Gorilla Glass is a drop then corner impact and that just straight drop, a drop with the phone spinning will amplify the force even more. I have this phone personally and the only time it heated up without gaming or charging was during setup, when I'm downloading around 30 apps from Google Play and synching my Cloud data to my phone at the same time using the phone modifying the settings.
Can any of you or even GSMa tell me if MIUI 12 has any kind of battery charge management? Like trickle charging, charging at 10w or 18w if needed, or a 80%/90% limit set? Thanks in advance.
