Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra bent test may surprise you


Larger smartphones and tablets are less robust and bow when subjected to severe strain. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has a gigantic 14.6-inch display and is only 5.5mm thick, so you’d think it wouldn’t be very structurally sturdy. JerryRigEverything, a well-known YouTuber, decided to put the largest Samsung tablet to the test in his normal durability test to see whether it would survive intact.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra’s 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display is constructed of glass and scratches at a Mohs hardness of six. The Tab S8 Ultra has an in-display fingerprint scanner that works even after being scratched severely with level 7 Mohs mineral picks. Metal is used on the sides and back, as evidenced by some close contact with a razor blade.

The larger S Pen pen that comes with the tablet has the same internal hardware as the S Pens used in Samsung’s Galaxy Note series and the S22 Ultra, but with a plastic spacer to fill up the larger interior structure. Last but not least is the crucial bend test, in which the Tab S8 Ultra flexes it flexes a little but maintains its rigidity without cracking.
