Cringe: Extreme Samsung Galaxy S5 drop test shows it’s one tough Smartphone

by John_A

Samsung Galaxy S5 drop testNobody likes watching a drop test video. Okay, that’s a lie; I do occasionally enjoy watching a phone get obliterated on pavement as I’m sure some of you do too. However, drop tests are normally conducted from waist-high and sometimes even head-high drops if you’re feeling a bit ambitious. Not in this video, which shows a Samsung Galaxy S5 drop test off a 2 storey building. I’ll let the video do the talking:

As the video mentions, the Galaxy S5 was actually subjected to some underwater tests prior to the drop test and was still functional after that. Of course, the result of the video is absolutely astounding considering that the Galaxy S5 is still fully functional with all its hardware working after a face-first impact from what is probably at least 10 metres. Despite what you may think about the plastic construction of the Galaxy S5, you can’t deny that the results of this video show that it is one tough smartphone. Now excuse me while I try and forget the sound of the phone hitting the concrete face-first…

What do you think about this video and the drop test performance of the Samsung Galaxy S5? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
