By now, I guess most of you have already watched this shocking (to me) video where they carry out the ‘drop test’ between iPhone 4s and Samsung Galaxy. Those of you who did not, AND do not either of it, brace yourselves. You won’t like what you are going to watch in a moment. The people carrying out the test make the phones look very cheap indeed. You would notice, they carry out the 3 tests for each phone. This means, they used 3 iPhones and 3 Galaxy S II equals 6 phones worth more than thousand of dollars.

Anyway, apart from complaining about what they have done, the video does give us an useful insight on such worst case scenarios that we can face any moment! It shows us clearly which phone would withstand after it has a hard impact. I was surprised to see the iPhone getting into a very bad shape whereas the Galaxy survived three of tests with a bit of scratch on the side. Thanks to the Gorilla Glass, Galaxy’s screen did not have a single scratch, let alone have the screen shattered.

Hope Apple considers making the screen plastic instead of glass the next time they come up with a new iPhone !

Enjoy the video!! 😛


  1. […] a 4.3 inch, Super LCD 2 (1280 x 720 Pixels). Most importantly with Gorilla Glass. Reminds me of its epic strength in Galaxy SII. According to HTC, at 341 ppi the display is denser than that of Apple’s Retina […]

  5. […] Apple has always worked to be dominant in the creative professional industry.  In 1997 Steve Jobs came onto stage at the Boston Macworld and stated that ““80% of all computers used in advertising, graphic design, prepress and printing were macs” and “64% of Internet websites are created on Macintosh”.  Not only has Apple been a leader in the creative industry, but they also have pioneered many firsts in the world of computers.  In 2001 Apple won the Primetime Emmy Engineering Reward for their Revolutionary Interface, the Firewire 400 which transferred data at 400Mbps, 30 times faster than the original USB standard.  Most recently Apple and Intel Engineers have come together to introduce the Thunderbolt Interface which runs at 10Mbps, twice as fast as the latest and greatest USB 3.0 standard of other manufacturers.
