The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL is a flagship smartphone that comes with topnotch specs like 5.7-inch Quad HD, Snapdragon 808, and 20 MP camera. A YouTube video shows the smartphone undergoing the bend, burn and scratch tests.

The JerryRigEverything YouTube channel has a new video that shows the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL undergoing extreme durability tests. It found that the Coring Glass 3 was able to withstand scratches caused by car keys on the screen. It also found that the glass present on the rear camera is almost as strong and resistant like the one present on the front.

However, the polycarbonate rear panel suffered scratches and cuts when subjected to a razor blade. It also shows that the blade can be used to easily peel the Windows 10 logo off from the rear panel.

The smartphone 'survived' only for a minute under the burn test, although its screen did not show any reactions when it was burned. The bending test revealed that the smartphone bends but its construction was strong enough to retain the pressure.

One of the advertised features of the Lumia 950 XL is liquid cooling. However, when the device was opened to view its internal components, it was found that the smartphone is fitted with a liquid based heat pipe system which is only used to balance the internal heat, clearly revealing that there is no liquid cooling on the Lumia 950 XL.

The super sensitive touch support on older smartphones such as the Lumia 920 and 930 allowed users to use such devices even when their hands were covered with gloves. According to Phone Arena, the displays of the newly launched Lumia 950 and 950 XL do not support touch feedback when they are used with hands covered with gloves. It indicates that the Lumia 950 and 950 XL smartphones do not feature super sensitive touch screens.
