Well-known video blogger Zach Nelson under the nickname JerryRigEverything, who tests smartphones and other mobile gadgets, summed up the results of last year by announcing the winners of his own Smartphone Durability Awards 2022.
The easiest smartphone to repair is the Google Pixel 7 Pro. You do not need to unscrew the screws to replace its screen, which can be replaced by an experienced technician in 60 seconds. The glass-backed iPhone 14 is harder to disassemble, as noted by Zack Nelson.
But the owners of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 will have the hardest time with repairs. Zach Nelson was able to disassemble the Galaxy Z Flip 4, but there is a high risk of breakage, in addition, finding spare parts for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Flip 4 quite difficult and they are not cheap.
The most innovative smartphone of 2022 was Nothing Phone (1) because the company created its own design and interface with 972 LEDs that are used for calls and notifications.
The most fragile smartphone last year was the Asus ROG Phone 6, while the most durable was the $300 AGM H5.
