Blogger Zach Nelson, aka JerryRigEverything, has named the most rugged smartphones of the year. Nelson announced this in a video on his YouTube channel.
The author considered Fairphone 4 to be the most reliable phone. Released in October 2021, the device has a modular design, thanks to which it can be disassembled and repaired at home. Nelson named the Kyocera Duraforce Ultra 5G the toughest device that he could not break during the tests.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 won the “Most Innovative Smartphone” nomination, which the author noted for its complex design with a folding screen. The blogger gave Legion Duel 2 the prize “The most attractive smartphone from the inside”. This device also won in the nomination “The most unreliable smartphone”.
In conclusion, Zach Nelson chose the phone that is least prone to repair. It turned out to be the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The author of the channel noted that it is extremely difficult to replace the screen and battery of the Apple flagship at home.
In early 2020, Zach Nelson named the Pixel 3a the most rugged Google phone yet. Against the Google device, the blogger put up Redmi Note 7, which broke down even with little physical impact during tests.
