We've always been curious how the Galaxy Note II with its gargantuan 5.5-inch display will fare in a drop test, but were too flaky to do it with our own unit, so here it is, your Moment of Zen...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Yep, I'm ready for this phone to get here. The iPhone 5 vs SGSIII drop test video made me nervous. Watching the Note 2 fall made me cringe, but thank goodness it survived!

Heh heh.. any phone that dropped screen down would have cracked, Gorilla glass or not! Anyway, he's demonstrating how it would have dropped if used normally so it makes sense. :)

old nokia c6-01 - more than 10 times falling on an edge or rock on the screen survived all of them

The whole point of these videos are to show potential buyers how durable the phone is. It is helpful to know this when buying a phone. He isn't doing it just to destroy it. He is helping us make a good decision as to which phone we potentially want to buy will hold up the best.

Well I'll be,,, Note 2 is great! Good job Samsung, but even then, everyone should get a case when going out, just to be safe.

I guess Samsung learned it's lesson from the build quality of the SIII and made the NoteII more durable!

great. looks like samsung's normal durability is back in action. Whatever is up with the S3 is just a fluke in the design somewhere.

Not a crack at all on the screen.. I'm impressed with the device being that damn big. I wonder what's different in it to make it more durable. Good, it stays on my "plausible next purchase" list. I was scared of the drop test after the S3 fail. lol

I never got the point of drop tests. They all are inconclusive since every drop situation is completely different...
