Drop Test: Samsung Galaxy S II vs Apple iPhone 4s


Got yourself an iPhone 4s? Or maybe a Galaxy S II? Ever wonder what would happen if you dropped it on concrete? Actually, it’s not hard to predict the outcome. Samsung has outfitted the Galaxy S II line of devices with Dow Corning’s Gorilla Glass to help resist against any scratches or cracks. For the record, Gorilla Glass doesn’t prevent damage, it just reduces the chance of damage. It’s still possible to break the glass. Apple did have a scratch resistant screen prior to the 4 series, and maybe it’s still present on todays devices. However, with the glass going right to the edge of the phone, it introduces an increased chance of damage when dropped. And there’s no end to the tweets and posts about broken screens on the iPhone 4.

The above images are the before shots. You’ll have to watch the video to see the results. Take a view and share your thoughts. :)

    It’s almost as if Apple wanted it to break when dropped. It’s a new source of revenue. I’m guessing that’s going to be at least $150 to have a new screen installed at the Apple store.
