The OnePlus 6 is just as well-built and seemingly durable as the vast majority of today's Android flagship phones, at least based on a popular "semi-scientific" YouTube review.
Deemed "slightly more durable" than the Galaxy S8 and iPhone X, Samsung's brand-new Galaxy S9 and S9+ are still extremely fragile, according to SquareTrade.
The ultimate Samsung Galaxy S9 durability test confirms what was already easy to guess - that you can't bend the phone with your bare hands or unintentionally scratch its beautiful screen.
In every major test, it seems that the Chinese manufacturer has put out strengths in durable industrial design, including one weird aspect in which it especially excels.
Google's Pixel 2 XL is probably not the world's most well-built smartphone, but at least it doesn't present any major structural weakness.
The OnePlus 5T arguably looks sleeker than the OP5, with significantly slimmer bezels, but both phones are rock-solid and premium built.
Just as expected, the new glass back and all-screen design make the iPhone X a very high risk for massive damage after a single hard drop.
The overall verdict is a positive one, but that wouldn't account for everything the scratch, burn and bend tests encompass.
It's hard but not impossible to repair the iPhone 8 at home. But it's pretty much impossible to bend it and it's not easy to scratch either.
Zack Nelson has put his blades and lighter to the Moto Z2 Force and, surprisingly, other than the ShatterShield screen, everything holds up well.
You don't have to pay a small fortune to procure a nice little phone that won't snap like a twig under pressure. Case in point, the 2017 Nokia 3310.
Already hailed as the company's fastest selling device ever, the freshly released OnePlus 5 also shines in typical durability experiments.
Due in part to its "squeezable" sides and a far too flexible metal frame, the HTC U11 can apparently break under moderate pressure.

Some users have reported that even with light use, the BlackBerry KEYone's display pops out of its placement on the device.
There's no comparison between the apparent durability of the Xiaomi Mi 6 and Mi 5, as the former looks unbreakable in "normal" conditions.
You probably can't beat Samsung's Galaxy S8 durability, at least not in traditional scratch, burn and bend evaluations by JerryRigEverything.
Yes, the LG G6 is as robust as it is beautiful, containing just premium metal and glass to resist bends, scratches and general light abuse.
So what if the Honor 6X is only $250 in the US? Customers should expect a decent level of durability with their purchase. Does it pass muster?
Indestructible? Hardly. Scratch-resistant? Not entirely. But the iPhone 7 doesn't appear to bend, and it's overall relatively robust.
Gorilla Glass 5 may help the Galaxy Note 7 resist hard drops from staggering heights, but when it comes to mundane scratches, things don't look great.
Even though it's (rightfully) billed as the world's thinnest premium smartphone, at 5.2mm, the Motorola Moto Z doesn't look very easy to bend.
Try as hard as you want, it appears the all-metal HTC 10 won't bend. And it's pretty hard to scratch as well, including a self-healing rear cover of sorts.
