    When it comes to budget smartphones, we are habituated with a mediocre processor, low-res display, average cameras, and cheap aesthetics. But when the Redmi Note 7 launched in China, it astounded the entire tech community. The handset comes with a features Snapdragon 660 chipset, appealing design, and a whopping 48MP camera.

    But the good things do not end there. Owing to the durability test done by the Redmi’s CEO Lu Weibing, we also came to know that the screen of the device is sturdy enough to evade the vulnerabilities of cracks and scratches in numerous occasions. Although we won’t break watermelons or crack walnuts with our smartphones, but Lu Weibing tested that. And we got the point. With so much of amazing features, the smartphone is one of the sought handsets in today’s date. If you ask me, I was also quite interested on the device, until recently.

    Technical Guruji, the most popular tech reviewer in India recently did unboxing & first look video on YouTube. Since the CEO had done durability test of screen number of occasion, the tech YouTuber also performed a bend test to check the credibility. But contrary to what we expected, the phone cracked open on his bend test. The frame of the device cracked on three different places on the frame and the screen shattered completely.

    However, the back panel of the device remained intact on the test. When he showed the rear panel, there was not enough adhesive to keep it glued to the frame. That was the reason why it flipped open completely and didn’t crack on bending the device.

    Technical Guruji is one of the most respected tech Youtubers. But since he rarely does bend and durability tests, we are still unsure if we should really rely on his test. But before we pass the final judgment, we should probably have to wait for the durability test from Jerry Rig Everything. Jerry Rig Everything is particularly known for durability tests and teardown videos, he would be the reliable person in this context.
