Slightly more durable than last year's U11, the new HTC U12+ still presents a number of worrisome build quality vulnerabilities.
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.
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.
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.
As robust as it is eye-catching, the hot new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 looks like it can easily handle the everyday pressure from typical smartphone users.
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.
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.
Indestructible? Hardly. Scratch-resistant? Not entirely. But the iPhone 7 doesn't appear to bend, and it's overall relatively robust.
