We all love a good Apple versus Android videos. A company which is responsible for giving your devices extended warranties did a drop test of the iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy S3.
A couple of drop scenarios were simulated by SquareTrade. It includes a fall from ear-height, child test (throwing into the air), and a drop from the car’s roof. We all know that amongst the three scenarios, the child throwing incident is nothing but common. It is also funny as hell.
In the ear-drop test, Apple’s iPhone 4S survived it with only minor dings to the phone’s corners. On the other hand of the equation, the Samsung Galaxy S3 received major cracks along the phone’s glass surface.
In the child test (throwing into the air), the iPhone 4S did not make it when two pre-schoolers hurled the handset above their heads. The phone’s glass back was destroyed while its front glass is intact. The Samsung Galaxy S3’s back and its battery popped off but the phone’s glass front was fine. In the drop from the car’s roof test, the iPhone made it out with a couple of dings only (again to the corners of the phone’s body). The Samsung Galaxy S3’s screen suffered the same fate (from the first test) and it was completely shattered into pieces.
At the end of the day, the iPhone 4S made it out with the least damage in two of the tests. On the other hand the Samsung Galaxy S3 suffered major damages to its glass front face. You have to keep in mind that the latter’s glass front face is bigger than the iPhone 4S. The Samsung Galaxy S3’s screen is at 4.8” and the iPhone 4S’ screen is at 3.5” only.
Please note that these tests drops can change and results can differ from one test to another. It all basically depends on the way the handset touched the ground.For updated iPhone 4S prices and T-Mobile JCB Pro-Smart deals, visit us at Phoneslimited.co.uk.
