Poco F1 Durability Test –
The Poco F1 durability test has been done by renowned tester Zack Nelson on his JerryrigEverything YouTube channel and for this he put the Poco F1 through different series of tests, to check the physical durability of the device.
The very first test performed on the Poco F1 was the scratch test, where the screen is scratched with different material, the material which can possibly scratch the screen in a daily normal usage. In the test, we have seen the screen getting scratches up to level 6 and deeper scratches at level 7, which is normal for the devices launching these days, talking about the durability, the device won’t get scratched by the coins and keys in the pocket. The device comes with Gorilla glass 3 and performed normally in the test.
It was so satisfying to see that the areas like front camera, infrared sensor and back camera located with the scratch proof material. Even the fingerprint sensor is coated with the scratch proof material, which is also a good thing, as generally, companies do not provide a scratch-proof coating on fingerprint sensors, even the Redmi Note 5 lacks this.

As many of you may aware of the fact that the Poco F1 comes with a plastic build, the back of devices comes with hardened polycarbonate. All of this has been done to cut the pricing of the device. And the same can be seen in the scratch tests also, the back of the device gets deeper grooves, and the same plastic coating is done at the edges of the devices and bottom, whereas the buttons like volume rockers and power button are made of metal.
At last, Zack put the Poco F1 through the toughest bend test, where the durability of the device can be tested to the highest. The bend test for Poco F1 was the most interesting part, as with the plastic build we can’t expect much, but the Xiaomi Poco F1 stood sturdy. Zack did the bend test from either side, and no catastrophic damage was seen in the test, as we have seen in the Oppo Find X, where the device failed badly and cracked in the bend tests.
Xiaomi may have included the polycarbonate uni-body in the new Poco F1 to deal with the low price of the device, but the device is not a gimmick at all.
