Shortly after its release, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra has landed in Jerry's hands for the usual torture session. Thankfully for the OEM and its fans, the new handset lives up to the expectations overall, although its durability alone does not justify the quite painful price of US$1,200.

Those who are considering the purchase of the new Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra should check JerryRigEverything's new video that involves the YouTuber's usual torture tests and proves that the US$1,200 flagship device is rugged enough for most daily hazards that it will face when used in mundane environments.

Without further ado, these are the highlights of the aforementioned durability testing session:

  • Samsung applied two screen protectors over the screen, which isn't such a leap forward in durability over last year's flagships. The new display is stuck at the usual "with deeper grooves at a level 7" stage when facing Mohs picks.
  • On the bright side, the display can handle the lighter's flame for roughly 45 seconds, although the mark left doesn't fade away after pulling away from the heat source.
  • The back cover is quite resilient when facing scratches, but this is not the case with the metal plate around the cameras.
  • The flagship also passed the bend test with flying colors.

On the other hand, Jerry was honest enough to highlight that most users would get much better value by purchasing a previous generation flagship that also features a microSD slot and a 3.5 mm audio jack instead of spending no less than US$1,200 for the brand-new Galaxy S21 Ultra. Would you follow his advice or not? Why? Let us know what you think in the comments section, as usual.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
