The Essential phone finds itself in a unique situation durability wise. The phone is covered in Gorilla Glass 5 on the front, the frame is made of titanium, and the back is covered with ceramic. With both glass and ceramic it would seem that the phone wouldn't be very durable at all except for the fact the frame is built with titanium which would seem to add some impact resistance. Zack from JerryRigEverything decided to drop test this phone. He dropped the Essential phone from his lap for the first test. The Glass cracked on the first drop. The glass and display continued to break in each subsequent drop while the ceramic back surprisingly lasted through all drops. Check out the video above.
