There are plenty of large smartphones and tablets that are not quite tough to survive the bend test. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is equipped with a massive 14.6-inch display and is merely 5.5mm thick. So you’d obviously assume it to not have the structural rigidity. Renowned YouTuber JerryRigEverything went ahead and put the durability of the largest Samsung tablet to date to the test. He performed the usual durability test to see if the tablet survives it.
The 14.6” Super AMOLED display on the tablet is made of glass and scratches at level 6 on Mohs hardness scale. Samsung Tab S8 has an under-display fingerprint scanner, which still works after deeper grooves from the level 7 picks. The sides and back panel are made of metal as proved by the razor blade.
Interestingly the larger S Pen stylus bundled with the tablet actually has the tech of the same size as the regular S Pen that comes with the Galaxy Note series and the S22 Ultra but with a plastic spacer to fill up the larger internal structure. Lastly, in the bend test it manages to retain its rigidity without breaking into two pieces.
