Holding it ain't a problem
But the thing is Jerry doesn't have an "set metric" of how much force he applies we are just supposed to take his word for it
And about breaking the phone rage quitting I think that would likely be an entitled guy and not an normal user 🙌
The possibility exists but I don't think most of us trash or bend our phones after losing an online multiplayer match lol

The post got closed because there is an existing one here: https://zentalk.asus.com/en/discussion/45899/rog-5-has-failed-jerrys-durability-test/

It didn't get closed because they're trying to hide the durability problem. (Though I do hope that they acknowledge this issue)

I will say though that as an owner of a Google Nexus 6P that bending isn't that big of an issue even though that phone (Nexus 6P) was completely snapped by Jerry in half with minimal effort (granted this is just my experience and use case).

ASUS has dropped the ball multiple times such as the lack of VoLTE and band support on the ROG Phone 2, the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack in ROG Phone 3, the lack of 5G mmWave support on the ROG Phone 5 (granted this one is for people like me who are Americans living in the big city), and slow software updates. However, the bending problem (from my own personal experience with another phone) isn't that big of a deal.

As for the designs, the ROG Phone 5 Pro and ROG Phone 5 Ultimate look absolutely beautiful. The base ROG Phone 5 though is extremely ugly and is probably one of the ugliest looking phone they made in my personal opinion (not sure if it's intentional to make the premium models look even prettier in contrast). Doesn't matter much though if ASUS or a third party makes a good looking case to hide the base model's ugly rear.

I know they didn't close it because they are trying to hide it, they close it as they want everything rog 5 to be written here! I have nothing against them, just moving the conversation here.

Yeah, it's difficult to read tones and there can be underlying messages when reading texts so I just pointed it out in case you were taking it the wrong way. (Not trying to be aggressive and I hope I don't sound that way lol)
But also, it's not that they want everything written in this thread. This is a general discussion thread for anything and does not have to be technical related. I'm sure they want the bending problem to be discussed in the already existing thread about said topic (the link I posted above).
