How did Huawei’s “unbreakable” Kunlun glass perform in a concrete drop test?
A concrete drop test shows how strong Huawei’s Kunlun glass really is
The second drop was from head high, screen side down, onto the concrete. Luckily for the phone, the device twisted before it hit the ground and the glass never touched the concrete and the phone landed on its backside. So there was no damage to the glass after that drop but we certainly couldn’t chalk it up to the strength of the Kunlun glass. So another attempt was made to drop the Mate 50 Pro on the screen from head high. On this attempt, the glass did kiss the concrete but there was no damage to the display.
The host of the video points out that the Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protected displays on both the Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra cracked on the very first drop (waist-high, screen down) when he drop-tested them recently. His conclusion? He’d like to see more smartphones use the Kunlun glass that Huawei used on the Mate 50 Pro.
