It became clear why the Asus ROG Phone 5 failed the durability test. The outer frame is weak, but the inner one is not at all

A few days ago, a blogger known as JerryRigEverything tested the Asus ROG Phone 5 smartphone for strength and, alas, it failed: even with a slight bending effort, the smartphone simply breaks. It would seem that even such a test is too tough, because in real life no one is trying to bend a smartphone in half, holding the edges. However, he clearly demonstrates what will happen to the smartphone if you forget it in the back pocket of your pants and try to sit down. In the case of the Asus ROG Phone 5, this is fraught with breakage. But why?

1616233415 724 It became clear why the Asus ROG Phone 5 failed

It’s simple. When disassembled by the same blogger, it turned out that the Asus ROG Phone 5 does not have an internal frame, although it is present in most smartphones. Moreover, the phone received two rechargeable batteries, with one located at the top and the other at the bottom. If the battery were single and large, it could act as a structural element and would not allow the smartphone to bend too much, preventing the metal frame from breaking and protecting the glass from damage. But that’s not all: a large cutout is made in the metal frame on one side for contacts to which accessories are connected, and on the other there is an antenna line. These places greatly weaken the frame – but there is no inner one at all. That is why the smartphone breaks down quite easily when it bends. And this is very similar to a miscalculation during development: if the manufacturer had placed the contacts for accessories, say, on the bottom edge, the frame would have already been much stronger. But this is not the case. Therefore, the exoskeleton in the form of a durable case Asus ROG Phone 5 is a must. And it’s good that it comes with the smartphone.

Disassembly also clearly demonstrates how many different cables and loops are inside the ROG Phone 5. There are even more of them than in Xiaomi Mi 11. The blogger also noted a good cooling subsystem and a small sub-screen fingerprint scanner ROG Phone 5.

There are a lot of technical problems that we are

On the sidelines of the Army-2022 forum, Kaspersky Lab CEO Evgeny Kaspersky announced that the company is finalizing the functionality of its hack-proof mobile phone to work with critical infrastructure.

“There are a lot of technical problems that we are slowly coping with.”  Evgeny Kaspersky spoke about a branded secure smartphone, which does not yet have a camera and performance problems

We wrote everything from scratch, so we still need to finish it. Camera does not work. We do, but it takes time. Plus performance – there is still work to make it work at the same speed that we are used to. There are a lot of technical problems that we are slowly coping with. When we show it and say it’s ready, I don’t know“Kaspersky said.

According to him, the device will be something between a regular smartphone and a push-button phone. “However, we do not consider it as a replacement for a regular smartphone. Still, this is more for working with critical infrastructure. … Modernity requires that infrastructure can be managed remotely. Therefore, a device is required that will be guaranteed unhackable. Therefore, we are making a device that will have a fairly limited functionality. There will be no App Store, there will be no chips that everyone loves on smartphones, but it will be a thing that can be safely controlled by a conditional turbine“Kaspersky added.

For the first time, Kaspersky announced work on creating smartphones under its own brand with protection against hackers in December 2020, then it was assumed that they would appear in 2021.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max feels like a brick and

An unknown source’s impressions of using the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max have appeared on the Web.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max feels like a brick, and the 48-megapixel camera shoots worse at night than the iPhone 13 Pro Max.  Appeared the first review of the upcoming updates Apple

The information was shared by insider LeaksApplePro, who, among other things, shared the correct images of the iPhone 13 before the announcement last year. The insider does not disclose who exactly shared his impressions, but this is not so important.

So, the new shape of the notch in the screen does not affect the user experience. Physically, the new notch is smaller than the current one, but it works pretty much the same. That is, apparently, Apple has not figured out how to effectively use the freed up screen area.

The new camera also has nuances. The source says that during the day the new 48-megapixel sensor turns out to be the best among smartphone cameras, but at night everything is not so good, and the same iPhone 13 Pro takes better pictures and less noisy. But Apple may well fix this with a software update.

The source also says that according to his feelings, autonomy has grown by a couple of hours, but he can’t say for sure. But the speakers definitely got better.

The screens of new products are about the same as in the current generation, as well as the huge mass of the top model. The source writes that the iPhone 14 Pro Max feels like a brick.
