Vivo’s New Phone iQOO 3 5G Strength Test Using Brake Pad


The iQOO 3 5G model, which Vivo recently announced, has been put into one of the most interesting durability tests to date. As a Webtekno team, the team applied a technique that we did not even try to stop a vehicle with this phone.

Before we talked to you about many different strength tests, we can say that the strength test this time is technically different. Because so far, we have not even performed such a hardness test. If you wish, let’s take a closer look at both the phone that tested the ruggedness and how this ruggedness test was completed.

Chinese technology manufacturer Vivo recently launched its new smartphone iQOO 3 5G. The phone, powered by the Snapdragon 865 processor, promised a refresh rate of 180 Hz with its 6.44-inch screen. The device, which attracts attention with its 55 watt fast charging support, also stands out with its 5G connection support and stylish design. This phone has now taken a ruggedness test that you have never seen before.

The ruggedness test for the iQOO 3 5G takes place on a race track. In this context, you may think that a vehicle will pass over this phone. However, the team that carried out the test took an even more creative approach in order to carry out perhaps the most unique robustness test to date. So much so that this phone was used as the brake pad of a BMW 530Li. So the goal in this ruggedness test was to stop a BMW using the iQOO 3 5G.

The team that carried out the robustness test first used the normal pads of the BMW 530Li. Immediately after this test, the team took the car to the garage and removed the brake pads and replaced them with 2 iQOO 3 5Gs. The brakes of the BMW 530Li are now entrusted to two phones weighing 200 grams. The aim was to see if the phone would come off at the end of this test.

Note: The pads used to stop a car are placed on both sides of the vehicle’s brake assembly. As soon as the driver presses the brake pedal, a very serious force emerges and this force integrates the brake pads with the vehicle’s discs. The resulting friction (serious friction occurs with friction) also causes the vehicle to slow down and stop.

As can be seen in the video above, iQOO 3 5G managed to stop the BMW 530Li, which weighs 2 tons. Moreover, the test team realized that both of the iQOO 3 5Gs it released after the vehicle stopped, despite the fact that it was severely damaged physically. This was really impressive considering the resulting temperature and friction force.
