Color me shocked, because I didn't make the connection between "Pro Apple" and "Android Authority" until you pointed it out. Thanks for that.

Oh really Wendy? You serious?? I love this guy, he's funny, he's not a biased reviewer, same as Joshua Vergara (another Android Authority reviewer).

Not like you, always trolling around, posting negative bashing comments!

And of course you know exactly how reliable the Galaxy S4 will be.

And maybe butterflies will fly out of my butt.

S4 was so lucky two times drop on the back, and still there is some people blame GG3.
Blame samsung bad build quality, because other plastic device can still survive form drop test even without GG3

At d end, it is still a gorilla glass and not a sapphire one hahaha..

Some other drop test in youtube says otherwise when kt comes to ip5 vs gs4 vs gs3 :)
And the comments in this androidauthority artcle say that the drop isnt fair. Lols
I ddnt watch it coz i already watched the gizmoslip's

Drop analysis. 1st and 2nd drop_ gs4 received no damage3rd drop d s4 fell on the front edge while ip5 fell on its back edge, so it wud be obvious that the front edge impact will create screen crack. :)

Samsung s4 sucks its very laggy i saw it in the store they need to fix touch-wiz and now the screen breaks great Samsung. it broke damn fast and people where talking about the htc one at least the htc one took many drops to break not like samsung s4 it was damn easy to break.

The thinner bezel and the bigger display should make the S4 more vulnerable to shatters on impact.
