Preciously, we’ve looked at scratch test video of Samsung Galaxy S4 which tells the story of how durable the Gorilla Glass 3 is. In that test, the Galaxy S4 performed very well, but how about a drop test of this latest device in the market?
That’s exactly what many of us were eagerly waiting for, and we now have a video that shows the all new Samsung Galaxy S4 in a drop test against its predecessors, the Galaxy S3 and Apple iPhone 5. To know how well the S4 scores, watch the video after the break.
When the Galaxy S3 was launched with polycarbonate shell, many thought that Samsung would improve over time, and use better materials with the S4. But many people were disappointed to learn that Samsung still uses the same plastic material in the company’s latest flagship device. The iPhone built with aluminum gives it a premium look, while the S3 and S4 built with plastic feels cheaper. But then again, none of the device nor construction material can give a guarantee in case of an unexpected drop from our hands.
Gizmoslip’s video compares how the Gorilla Glass 3 based Galaxy S4 perform in a drop test, along with iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3. Take a look at the video below and see for yourself.
Well, as you can see in the video, the Galaxy S4 might be better than the S3 in most ways, but it still gets damaged. When the S4 was dropped on its corner, it showed durability, but with some minor corner damage. When the same phone was dropped facing down, the screen was completely shattered, which means that the S4’s Gorilla Glass 3 did not much prove to be as strong and durable as it claims to be.
But then again, be it any phone, it should be protected from falling and that’s why there is something called “protective cases.” Invest some bucks and buy a decent case to protect your device in case of a drop, because accidents do happen and it’s better to stay protected than to curse later on.
