New flagship smartphones from Samsung have not only disassembled but also tested for strength. Famous tehnobloger Zac Nielson held a proprietary test, designed to check the reliability of a Galaxy S10 with everyday use. The most interesting was the test of a new ultrasonic fingerprint scanner built into the display.
The Galaxy S10 uses Corning Gorilla Glass 6 tempered glass in the front and back, which is scratched in the same way as in previous generations. Noticeable traces begin to appear from the tool with a degree of hardness number 6. The body of the smartphone, including a hybrid SIM card tray and buttons, is made of durable aluminum. When trying to bend the device, the blogger did not succeed, no matter how hard he tried: the gadget remained flat, and the glasses — intact.
Unlike an optical scanner, an ultrasonic scanner creates a 3D fingerprint model. Therefore, this method is more reliable and is able to work even if the finger is wet or dirty. When small scratches appear on the screen, the scanner is not affected. But when the damage becomes more critical or the display cracks, the print is no longer read.
