Now, we have another extreme test. The Samsung Galaxy S5 was dropped two-stories. Would the phone survive? As you would expect, the display was shattered, the casing was bent and there were scratches in a few areas. But surprisingly, the phone still worked.
Even as smartphones become loaded up with more and more features, and the circuitry becomes more complex, the build quality is improving to the point where a two-story drop might not be enough to kill a handset.
Thanks for the tip, Richard!
