Will The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Bend, Scratch, Or Burn?

Remember #bendgate? It was all the rage back in 2014, after Apple released the rather bendable iPhone 6 Plus. Ever since that point, some people have taken to constantly testing recent phones for such behavior. But after a while just doing bdiscontinue tests becomes boring, we assume. Hence, the video you can see below goes even further with Samsung's recent Galaxy S7 edge. Aside from the obligatory bendiness review, you also acquire a scratch test and... a lighter trying to burn the phone.

The scratch test is the most comprehensive, covering the handset's screen, its glass back, as well as the glass covering the capturing camera lens and the plastic that's on top of the Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash and heart rate sensor. Finally, the aluminum frame faces the knife too.

The effect of the flame on the S7 edge's display is certainly interesting, as is the fact that you can't break it by bending, but the back panel does lift up at one point compromising the phone's water resistance.
