iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3: Drop test reveals the most durable

iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3: Ever wondered which is stronger? A video by insurer SquareTrade reveals all

The iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 are two of the most popular phones on the market, so it’s no wonder there’s friction between the two. Both are unique in their own way, but which is the most durable? Well, according to a video by insurers SquareTrade, the iPhone wins hands down.

The firm carried out multiple tests on both devices, which included dropping them in a swimming pool, to see which is the most susceptible to taking a battering.

In the first test, both phones were dropped from the same height, which resulted in the iPhone 5 suffering minor scratches, while the S3’s screen was smashed to smithereens.

Although, in all fairness to the S3, it crash landed screen-first, while the iPhone landed on its bottom – had the roles been reversed, chances are Apple’s smartphone would have suffered a similar fate.

The waterproof test was fairer; both devices were dropped in a swimming pool, resulting in the iPhone carrying on as normal (albeit, it was a tad slow at responding to requests) and Samsung’s blower going in total meltdown.  

The third and final test comprised of both devices having your average household items being dropped on them, including a rolling pin and torch. Both devices seemed to put up a good fight, although the S3’s screen took an almighty blow from the bottom edge of a wine bottle and cracked on impact.

Although again, in fairness to the S3, the bottle landed differently on it than it did on the iPhone 5, so in overview, it wasn’t a fair test. Anyways, you can make up your own mind by watch the clip below. Enjoy.

The Galaxy S3 is fantastic. I am just loving the experience of using it from the day i bought it. Same is true for http://www.absinthelights.com/lighting/indoor-led-lighting/wall-lights as well, I redecorated my house using illuminaries from here and anyone sees it is quite impressed by the functionality. Your friends are going to envy you, just because this phone is so amazing!

If we Talking about Display then Apple has sought to up the ante to compete with Samsung in terms of screen size and the improved multimedia performance that typically corresponds with a larger display. The iPhone 5 measures 4in diagonally, though the Galaxy S3 is known for being one of the tallest non-hybrid handsets, sporting a 4.8in display. The attractiveness of the respective devices all depends on how big a piece you're happy to slot into your pocket, but for us, the iPhone 5's new 4in display looks plenty big for quality video playback and gaming needs, without being a burden.
