NEW iPhone SE - Bend Test - Scratch Test - Burn Test

  • Published on Mar 30, 2016 veröffentlicht
  • How durable is the New iPhone SE? Did Apple skimp on materials to make this budget 4 inch device? It seems to be an exact imitation of the iPhone 5. Lets give it the ol' JerryRigEverything durability test.
    First we will start with the scratch test, making sure we hit the screen, the aluminum back, and the camera lens. After that we will burn the display and see if the IPS panel can recover from the extreme heat. Then we can try bending it.
    The camera I used to film this video: amzn.to/1IjlaCD
    The Lens I used for this video: amzn.to/1QOXDw2
    And this Metabones adapter: amzn.to/1R7Ltic

      John Locksom it’s not really easy to break the phone. I’ve also had mine for 3 years. My phone has been through hot Texas summer car heat and cold winters. It’s been through pockets filled with rain and has still survived and functions like I just bought it. I have dropped it so many times I don’t even remember, but not once had it cracked.

  • wilbur
    wilbur 2 years ago +1

    I believe that the one, small crack doesn’t matter and that it passes the bend test. It didn’t effect the performance and, considering most people will have cases to prevent that, is insignificant.
    I may be biased as someone who owns an SE, but I stand by it.

    It looks durable so I thought it would be. So far the phone is in perfect condition for me for 2 years but it broke pretty well here.

    Kyle Perkins 3 years ago

    Came here from the "how to replace the screen video" to learn about the home button and bend test. I keep mine in a life proof, and would be lying if I said I'd never tried to snap it in half. It bends exactly as you've mentioned, but works perfectly still. The battery hasn't heated up any or lost any life. The screen only broke when I Gronk spiked it at the floor.

  • Randomness
    Randomness 2 years ago +3

    I remember I had that phone (same colour and all) as my first phone and LOVED it I was offered a new one like 3 times but always turned it down. One day I was chasing after my friend and it fell onto the concrete. I was not worried because even tho it did not have a screen protector or protective case on I had it for years and had dropped it several times (One time I even dropped off of sledge hammer at Canada’s wonderland and it d8d not even have a scratch) anyways I picked up my phone to see it had completely shattered I was heart broken. I still have the phone to this day I keep it in a box in my room. I always liked smaller phones but decided that if I was going to get a new phone anyway I might as well get a new one so I ended up getting a rose gold iPhone XS I could have gotten the X, XR or XS Max but I got the XS for the smaller feel to it. Thanks for reading :)

    I just got an iPhone se. I got it for $90 refurbished. Didn’t come in a box tho. Still a really great phone. It doesn’t lag even tho it’s 2021. I love how it feels, and it’s a great option for kids as well. Maybe the iPod touch would be the best for kids, but the se is also a good value for the money.

    Today I have watched a video from this guy on how to change battery from iPhone se 2016. When I tried to take off the battery, those fucking sticks teared, despite I tried to do exactly how he has done. I took all cares. Ended having to spend the double because I just got pissed and battery started to leak and smell...
    I will tell you something that every person says about able: they don't want you to replace anything. Every corner inside a fucking apple device is made in such way you end breaking it, or making something of it unusable income way. In order to disassembly an iPhone, you will need at least 3 or 4 different screwdrivers! What is that fucking stick? I was with my arm all up and the stick was not gone yet.
    It is called Design to Disaster! Apple is a shame. They say they want programmers to program with ease and breeze, so why don't let people to do the same for the replacement of unfuctional parts? F U APPLE
