Samsung has launched the Galaxy S22 series with claims of enhanced robustness thanks to their updated premium design. Now, a YouTuber has tested these claims out on its flagship, the S22 Ultra. Can the new phablet's new Gorilla Glass Victus+ and upgraded frame stand up to challenges that culminate in a vehicular onslaught?

Samsung has unveiled its latest generation of Armor Aluminum in its new Galaxy S22 flagship series. It makes up the frame that secures the phones' sandwich of Gorilla Glass Victus+, which protects both its front and rear panels. Therefore, the new premium handsets are touted to be tougher than ever.

A YouTuber has decided to put these claims to the test. However, this vlog is JerryRigEverything, as some may expect, but PBKReviews, which means the durability-assessments included go quite beyond the classic bend and scratch tests to immersion in water, amongst other things.

This video appeared to show that its star, the S22 Ultra, does seem to outdo everything else on the market, mostly thanks to its Gorilla Glass Victus+ screen, even exhibiting resistance to the typical "scratches at a level 6, with deeper grooves at a level 7" effects of Mohs hardness picks. 

PBKReviews then completed their testing by rolling the wheels of a car over the world's latest S Pen-toting phone. Therefore, it seems capable of lasting the course should it truly be the last of its kind this time. Then again, it will now be very interesting to see if similar channels get the same kind of results.
