The author of the PBKreview YouTube channel conducted a drop test of the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro smartphone with Kunlun Glass protective glass, the Chinese tech giant’s own development. As it turned out, you cannot call it invulnerable – but it really does not hold mechanical strength.
During the recording of the video, the smartphone was dropped four times. The first fall came from a height of about half a person’s height, and left behind barely noticeable chips along the edges of the display and scratches on the side frame. For the second and third time, the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro fell from the height of the head and a little higher. At the same time, the protective glass again passed the test, and the display remained in full working order.
The last time the Mate 50 Pro was dropped on the back from waist level, the result was a thin crack on the screen that ran across the entire width of the protective glass. The author of the video also showed minor damage to the back cover and frame of the camera module.
Summing up the results of the experiment, the blogger noted that it is impossible to formally call the protective glass HUAWEI Kunlun Glass unbreakable. However, it handled drops significantly better than Gorilla Glass Victus 2 on the Galaxy S23+ and S23 Ultra in previous tests.
