The Galaxy S22 series phones are clad in Corning’s latest durable Gorilla Glass Victus+ and have a new Armor Aluminum alloy frame for added toughness. While both proved more resistant to scratches and scuffs than what we had on previous models, the ultimate phone endurance test is a drop test, and there the S22 Ultra didn’t fare so well.

The curved display, as pretty it is to look at and as ergonomic to do the back gesture over, seems to be another weak design point of the S22 Ultra when it comes to durability. A simple corner drop from waist height cracked it significantly, and we shudder to think what would happen if the phone plops face down on the concrete.
