The screen of the Galaxy S24 Ultra proves to be remarkably resistant to scratches.

Samsung has recently revealed its latest flagship Galaxy S24 series, creating quite a buzz in town. One of the standout features of the new Galaxy S24 Ultra, in particular, is its revolutionary reflection-free screen, crafted from Corning Gorilla Armor glass, proudly claimed by Samsung as its “most scratch-resistant yet.”

While it might be tempting to brush off such claims as mere marketing rhetoric, a recent durability test done by JerryRigEverything proves that Samsung isn’t exaggerating after all.

In his video, JerryRigEverything assesses the S24 Ultra’s durability by subjecting the screen to scratches using various picks aligned with the Mohs hardness scale – spanning from level one (softest materials) to level 10 (hardest). Impressively, scratches only began to appear at level seven. However, they did not result in the grooves typically seen at this level in glass.

Instead, JerryRigEverything’s pick begins to leave deeper grooves at level eight, indicating the impressive durability of the S24 Ultra’s screen. Upon closer inspection with a microscope, he observes nicks at level seven while his pick removes chunks of glass at level eight.

Previously, the YouTuber found that the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s display developed deeper grooves at level seven. This suggests that the S24 Ultra’s display is notably more resistant to the micro-scratches commonly encountered in day-to-day use.

However, when it comes to heating the displays with a lighter, the Galaxy S24 Ultra lasted about 30 seconds before going white, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max proved to be tougher here, and its display had no reaction to the lighter. It needed a MAPP gas torch to damage the display, which uses Ceramic Shield instead of Corning Gorilla Armor glass, found on the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

In a nutshell, the Galaxy S24 Ultra screen is impressively robust. Yet, it’s a good call not to play around with these tests at home if you want to keep your $1000+ smartphone looking as new as out of the box.
