2016 is over. And its time to evaluate all of the phones I have tested on my channel during this year. It was a tough choice trying to pick the strongest smartphone of 2016. There were so many good phones this year. The weakest was pretty easy. ↓↓↓↓↓↓ CLICK TO SEE MORE ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓ And there were a few failures of smartphones to add to the mix as well. 2016 was a very interesting year, and I have High Hopes for 2017! Having a durable cell phone is important for the people who keep their phones longer than a year or two. Its important to get a phone that will last the test of time. ALSO its very important to always use a case and a screen protector on your device. I never recommend using your phone without protection. You might have noticed that I didn't say much about the Galaxy S7 Active. This was intentional as I do not think the S7 Active should be winning any awards. 1) It is exclusive to AT&T, which makes it hard to obtain. AND its 'shatter resistant' screen is just glass covered in plastic. So, im sure its a good phone. But I don't think its a contender for this particular video. --------------------------------------------------------- AWARDS: Most Durable: HTC 10 Honorable Mention: OnePlus 3 Least Durable: NextBit Robin Most Repairable: Google Pixel Honorable Mention: LG V20 Least Repairable: HTC 10 Most Innovative: Xiaomi Mi Mix Lease Innovative: iPhone 7 LG G5: Advertising Fail Note 7: A series of unfortunate events. ------------------------------------------------------------- HTC 10 Durability Video: https://youtu.be/cQ62ixgzhrI HTC 10 Teardown: https://youtu.be/T5uLJJnEHMk Nextbit Robin Durability Test: https://youtu.be/EU6Tv-OfXk0 Google Pixel Durability video: https://youtu.be/18nJ3hjUCTw Google PIxel Teardown: https://youtu.be/0tKNn_w3Yfk iPhone 7 Durability test: https://youtu.be/0vYfAqEyGV0 iPhone 7 Screen Repair: https://youtu.be/hIs6vLdHHKI Mi Mix Durability test: https://youtu.be/_CZj-l9MJmg Mi Mix Teardown: https://youtu.be/m5MkZC1uRZY LG G5 durability test: https://youtu.be/0GQ43cF5TuU LG G5 Teardown: https://youtu.be/SyP_cEpp2Zo Note 7 Durability test: https://youtu.be/571pu66vEBc Note 7 Teardown: https://youtu.be/x3Iz0SPy2Ic Note 7 Explosion video: https://youtu.be/_Cd2WIxKRDk LG V20 Durability video: https://youtu.be/nBlUL-7Dl4U LG V20 Teardown: https://youtu.be/KNgSDmkn96c One Plus 3 Durability test: https://youtu.be/8PZ8W_g6Vvk One Plus 3 Teardown: https://youtu.be/Hh_XgrcQ9oo Awesome Smart Phone Tool Kit: http://amzn.to/1XdJPuA Green Pry tool: http://amzn.to/1Tu57pI Phone opening metal tool: http://amzn.to/1WdOFv0 The camera I used to film this video: http://amzn.to/1IjlaCD The Lens I used for this video: http://amzn.to/1QOXDw2 And this Metabones adapter: http://amzn.to/1R7Ltic *Follow me for updates!* Instagram: http://instagram.com/zacksjerryrig Facebook: http://on.fb.me/1U4bQqv Twitter: https://twitter.com/ZacksJerryRig Snapchat: http://bit.ly/1UAb2Fq GooglePlus: https://bit.ly/1YyKice JerryRigEverything assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video.

A screen protector is probably the only thing I’d recommend any person get for their smartphone. The screen is the part that breaks the most out of the dozens of iPhone's I've broken over the years. If you've looked online, you'll see a ton of plastic and glass screen protectors, with prices ranging from $10 dollars to $40. Within that range that are products that are worth $40 but most are not. TL:DW: Plastic is tougher. Glass looks better. Current 10 slim/wallet/screen protectors for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7: https://www.mobilereviews-eh.ca/top-10-guides/ Here's a list of recommend review videos that I show clips of in my videos: Super tough glass - Patchworks ITG Silicate glass: https://youtu.be/jE0-VNihbwU 3 Things to do after breaking a screen: https://youtu.be/QA9zEUC2bsk Pretty tough glass - WinngerGear Topaz: https://youtu.be/a14oEBfN1wI Tough plastic - Thule Atmos X4: https://youtu.be/tZO5KG1GMnQ Torture test involving plastic and glass screen protector: https://youtu.be/NQntqpu8-YI What what type of screen protector should you get? Glass or Plastic? The biggest difference from my perspective is durability. Get a plastic screen protector if you’re rough on your iPhone. if you have a tendency to drop it a lot. Or have kids who treat your $1000 iPhone like a throwable toy. Other than that, go with a glass screen protector. Before I get into the details, I have to make sure you guys know what a screen protector actually to the screen of your smartphone. All it does is provide an extra layer of protection. It doesn’t reinforce the actual screen. A bad edge drop may still break your screen. An unlucky drop where a rock makes contact between the case edge and screen protector will result in a break. Plastic screen protector - Pros #1 Pro - As I mentioned at the beginning of the video, plastic screen protectors are very durable. #2 Pro - The second pro for plastic screen protectors is that they are reusable. You can take them off, store it and use it again. Some of them are even washable which helps with long term usage. Plastic screen protector - Cons Con #1 - Plastic screen protectors show scratches easier and scratches are usually permanent. Certain screen protectors have “healing” properties which will hide light scratches. Con #2 - Lots of screen protectors have words like “fingerprint resistance” or “Oleophobic Coating”. I call most plastic screen protectors fingerprint magnets. It will take many wipes to clear the screen which isn’t something you won't have to do as often for glass screen protectors. Con #3 - Certain plastic screen protectors will diffuse the HD screen of your device. This usually occurs with built-in plastic screen protectors on cases. Con #4 - Plastic screen protectors won’t offer 100% screen coverage. You won’t see a plastic edge to edge screen protector. Con #5 - Some Plastic screen protectors aren’t as smooth as glass. There will be a noticeable difference between tracking your finger over a glass screen protector vs a plastic one. So that’s all I have for plastic screen protectors. If this video has been useful to you, consider getting your stuff through my site. Nobody pays me to break my own iPhones and screen protectors so I’d be grateful for any support you’re willing to give. Glass screen protector - Cons Con #1 - The moment you crack a glass screen protector, it is done. Ever get a chip on a windshield and watch it travel across the entire pane of glass? it’s the same for glass screen protectors. On top of that, since it’s glass and glass can be sharp, there might be a chance that you cut yourself after a bad chip or crack. Con #2 - Glass screen protectors won’t offer as much impact protection. Glass screen protector - Pros Pro #1 - Your smartphone screen is going to look great. Like nothing was sitting on top of it. Pro #2 - if you’ve been looking at screen protectors, you’ll notice that most of them claim to be of 9H hardness. Glass offers better scratch resistance. Pro #3 - Glass screen protectors come in Edge to Edge variations. RL:RIA: Plastic lasts longer. Glass looks better. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to stay in the loop!

I built a like-new(but really refurbished) iPhone 6S 16GB entirely from parts I bought in the public cell phone parts markets in Huaqiangbei. And it works! How much did it cost? Answer here: https://youtu.be/-KucQDXnKws I've been fascinated by the cell phone parts markets in Shenzhen, China for a while. I'd walked through them a bunch of times, but I still didn't understand basic things, like how they were organized or who was buying all these parts and what they were doing with them. So when someone mentioned they wondered if you could build a working smartphone from parts in the markets, I jumped at the chance to really dive in and understand how everything works. Well, I sat on it for nine months, and then I dove in.

Honor 8 vs Huawei P9 HTTP://www.mobilegeeks.com At first glance the Honor 8 looks like a glass version of the Huawei P9, they have the same dual cameras, 5.2” Full HD display, battery size and they are even running the same UI. Let's see if it's worth spending a couple hundred dollars more on the P9 or if the Honor 8 is the clear choice. Huawei makes some of my favorite smartphones, their sister brand Honor used to come out with similarly spec'ed devices that were nowhere near as sophisticated looking as their more expensive counterparts. That's not what's happening with the Honor 8 whose design and finish are more similar to the premium aesthetic of Samsung with it's 15 layers giving the 8 a stunning shine. By contrast the P9 whose 2.5D glass front has a more understated elegance. Both devices run EMUI 4.1 on Android 6.0, sport the same size size battery, offer a MicroSD card for expansion, have a 2.5 inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, although I did notice a pretty big difference in color temperature, but you can adjust it in the settings to get the display's looking virtually identical. Being all metal the P9 is a little heavier but comes in a touch thinner than the 8. Under the hood there is a slight difference in processor but in everyday use I've not been able to decern a performance difference when spinning through the UI opening and closing apps. The P9 offers a bit more punch in terms of being able to multitask and open large applications or games, but both processors do offer a premium experience.
