LG Smartphone

Passed MIL-STD-810G Tests

No More Rigidity, No More Damage

The LG Smartphones officially passed the latest durability test specifications of the U.S. Department of Defence. This adherence to strict standards guarantees safety and prevents damage in the event that the Smartphone is dropped or subjected to pressure, protecting you valuable data.




If a device boasts MIL-STD-810G compliance, it should, in theory, be durable. It should be far more likely to survive drops and harsh environmental conditions. If you are someone who enjoys hiking and rock climbing or drop your phone very often, you might want to consider a MIL-STD-810G rated phone.

What MIL-STD Means to us?

LG Electronics has increased the strength of its own endurance experiments to achieve durability beyond expectations, but there was no way to explain it. This is because there were many and difficult contents to inform each test item and difficulty.

The moment you need a way to describe durability in one word! The United States Department of Defense has found a military standard, a quality test standard, and commissioned a specialized agency to perform this test. Since then, 'Military Standard' has been a great name tag for the best durability products.

Let’s go to the LG durability lab, which is notorious for its strong durability test!

The smartphone is the closest device to our daily life. That’s how many troubles (?) smartphones will suffer, right? Of course, it is necessary to have strong durability!

The LG passed 14 military standard items, and received attention for its excellent durability. At the centre of this, the role of the LG smartphone durability lab was significant. This is because it creates extreme conditions such as water resistance, fall weight (shock), torsion, and human load, which can be experienced by a mobile phone, and is thoroughly trained.

What if you miss a cell phone while taking a picture on the beach or in a valley ? It's a terrible situation just to think about it? LG lectronics performs a waterproof test to submerge a mobile phone playing a video at a depth of 1.5m for a certain period of time. Even after wiping off the water, carefully check whether all functions, such as touch and video playback, are operating normally.

The dust test in the LG smartphone lab is much more intense than the military standard. Put a smartphone in a box containing finer dust and flour than flour, and rotate it as if rolling a ball.

Check whether the external damage caused by dust and normal operation and, to check meticulously map does not have to disassemble the machine just in case the fine dust containing leaked into the product.

The machine is also tested for durability by reproducing situations in which it can hit other objects in the pocket or bag. Various tests such as fall test, torsion test, free fall test, and continuous drop test are performed.

Even if you drop, twist, or drop a metal ball without hesitation, you can check the LG smartphone that works fine. For reference, this degree of testing in the LG Durability Lab is the basic one!

This is not the end. We are also testing the durability to withstand the impact of a shock applied to all six sides of the smartphone simultaneously. We are conducting high-strength self-durability tests to overcome harsh environments that you will never know when and how.

Why is the swollen butt model here? This model is a human body load test device developed in the LG smartphone durability lab that most closely resembles an adult male's hip. Durability is tested by recreating the everyday environment, such as pressing and sitting on the smartphone screen. You know, it's a high quality butt that you can use, right?
