Quality that speaks for itself

Reliability testing for enhanced durability

First model built according to Huawei's stringent 3.1 quality assurance standards.

A number of new accelerated aging tests were conducted to identify quality defects,


  • Drop test: Added a drop test from 1.5 m in addition to the original 1 m and 1.2 m tests.

  • Impact test: In order to test the ability of the screen and interior components to withstand an impact, a 130 g/32 mm steel ball was dropped twice from a height of 23 cm.

  • Port durability test: The headset jack and micro-USB port were plugged and unplugged 20,000 times (compared with 10,000 times on previous models) – equivalent to nearly 55 years if the ports are used once per day.

  • Temperature/Humidity test: The phone was subjected to a temperature of 85oC at 85% humidity for 500 hours (the phone was switched on for half the time).

  • Thermal shock test: The phone was subjected to 600 cycles of rapid temperature changes from –40oC to +70oC. Each cycle lasted for 1 hour, with the temperature changing 10oC every minute. The two extreme temperatures of –40oC and +70oC were maintained for 20 minutes in each cycle . Previous models were only tested for 78 cycles with a temperature range of –20oC to +55oC.

  • Salt spray test: The phone was subjected to a fine mist made from a 5% sodium chloride solution at 35oC for 24 hours. Previously, this test was only conducted for 8 hours.
