HTC One vs iPhone 5 drop test results in broken glass, shattered dreams

0. phoneArena 28 Mar 2013, 05:13 posted on

Today's high-end smartphones are fragile creatures, regardless of whether they're made of metal or plastic. Usually a drop or two onto a hard surface result in damage that can't be undone, unless repaired by a professional. Yet some handsets fare better when it comes to accidental drops. Is the metal-made HTC One among them?...

Samsung's unbreakable or flexible display will answer that.

No thanks I'd rather take my chances with my glass display breaking than walk around with a phone with a plastic screen! And I'm sure glass will still feel better most people don't even like using screen protectors because how it changes the feel

The Samsung flexible durable screen will be made of PLASTIC just Google it.. Just like some cheep tv screens are plastic! U must of missed ces.. I will never buy a phone with a plastic display then the entire samsung phone will be plastic lol and if u drop it on its screen it will still scratch.

I am sure they won't release flexible touch screens until they can make it feel like glass. In fact, Gorilla Glass shares more characteristics with plastic than it does with plain window glass.

When will people stop being careless? Nothing is indestructable and the way people use their technology, physical medias, vehicles, and such leaves much to desire. Sure their is normal wear and tear, however their is again stupidty and carelessness. I have seen so many screen with spider web cracks, scratched up optical medias, and such.

What the hell is the point of these drop tests other than to destroy two perfectly fine phones. Some kids just have too much time and too little respect for the awesome things we are blessed with.

No two drops are identical and hence unless you reproduce the test 100 times and taken an average, it proofs nothing. Just stupid.....

Lol? The S3 lost to the iPhone 5? And the S4 isn't much different, I wouldn't expect different results this year.

S4 has Gorilla Glass 3 and the sides of S4 have actual metal this time unlike with S3 which had metal finish ! So it will definetly better than S3

and BTW what does 'lol?' mean. You are laughing out loud in interrogative way ? How do you do that ?

Don't be smart, Android fanboys claim everyone is the worst and as soon they have anything negative put against them they dislike, no thought. Android fanboys were cool and fair and fair thinking years ago ... not anymore. I know the more dislikes I have the more they know its true. You guys cant stand when there is anything good with iPhone either, it must be good enough to be the highest selling smartphone flagship. Damn you fanboys are ignorant, won't give anything else a chance or thought, and when i said lost to the iPhone i mean the S3 lost to the iPhone5 in the DROP TEST.
