Smartphone drop tests are done to show the durability of one smartphone pitted against another, but they’re also pretty darn fun to watch. This time around, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 is put against Apple’s iPhone 5.
The results may sound a bit obvious given the build materials on each device, but the results are given through some rather extreme tests. Chances are that if you accidentally drop either of these phones out of your pocket that they will still be able to hold their own, but hopefully you don’t go testing this out for yourself.
Both devices were tested by dropping at pocket and chest height, with the third drop above the test conductor’s head, reaching a little more than 7 feet in the air.
At the end of the tests, Apple’s iPhone 5 escaped without too many dramatic blemishes, where the Galaxy S 4 met the plastic phone gods. We can only hope to see a sturdier Android phone, like the HTC One gets pitted against the very solid iPhone 5 next time.
