Nelson divided the tests into levels, and the phone screen scratch test revealed that there were visible scratches once the second level was reached, while the third level managed to scratch the screen significantly, and the fourth level created a physical hole in the screen.
Nelson says that this screen is not scratch-resistant in any way, and criticized Samsung for the potential to mislead the market.
