Looking at the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, it definitely does not look tough with all the glass but looks can be deceiving.
JerryRigEverything put the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 through their standard stress test and the results are pretty impressive. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 display, camera and back will all be protected by the Gorilla Glass 5 which was rated at Level 6 for its toughness. That means items like coins, keys, and similar object won’t stand a chance against the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
The metal earpiece also means that it won’t rip. As for the S Pen, the only part that might not last is the plastic tip but that is replaceable. The test also showed that the fingerprint sensor could still continue to read and scan fingerprint even when it is scratched.
The Note 8 was also subjected to the bend test which it passes without any issue.
