China-based ZTE recently launched its ZTE Axon 30 smartphone which comes with an under-display camera sensor for offering a true full-screen experience to users. This also marks the second such smartphone from the company.
The major difference between the in-display camera technology used in this model and in the last year’s phone is the display quality. The Axon 30 comes with a screen offering about 400PPI pixel density, almost double the pixel density on last year’s Axon 20. As for the durability, JerryRigEverything has put it to the test.
First of all, the front-facing camera, which is housed under the display, is pretty much invisible, unlike its predecessor. This is because of the high pixel density display. However, the camera performance isn’t as good as the regular camera sensor.
The phone’s display, when exposed to flame for about 20 seconds or more, forms a white-colored spot forming, which appears to be permanent given that the company has opted to use an OLED panel.
In the scratch test, the screen starts showing scratches at level six while deeper grooves on the display start forming at level seven. The screen area on top of the camera sensor is also immune to minor scratches. The in-display fingerprint sensor keeps working properly even after level seven grooves.
The smartphone is built using plastic but the power button and volume rocker keys are metallic. The camera module on the back is protected by a layer of glass and the separating the camera module from the back cover is made of metal.
The ZTE Axon 30 also passed the bend test, which is surprising given how much the phone bends. While bending the phone backward, there was a sound of something breaking inside but the device kept performing normally. Overall, the build quality is quite good for a smartphone costing about $500.
