Samsung Galaxy S6 edge gets thrown on the floor but survives this violent drop test
Samsung built its new flagship phone from scratch after the Samsung Galaxy S5 was deemed a disappointment by phone buyers. The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge has a metal frame sandwiched by two pieces of Gorilla Glass 4, one in the front and one in the back. While giving the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge a new cool design, it does mean that the phone could be in pretty bad shape if it is dropped. How much protection can Gorilla Glass 4 provide? Perhaps a new video gives us the answer.

A low-resolution clip has been uploaded to YouTube showing a woman apparently taking out her frustrations on a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Perhaps she is upset with the news that Zayn Malik has left One Direction. Or maybe she's pissed that her local McDonald's stopped serving the McRib. Whatever the reason, she throws the handset to the ground with a speed that makes us recall Bob Gibson in his prime.

Despite the rather hard throw, a quick test shows that the Galaxy S6 edge has survived. It is hard to tell from the video, but it appears that there is no damage to the phone whatsoever. As we get closer to the launch of the device on April 10th, we probably will see more elaborate drop tests and water tests. Remember, because of the new build the Samsung Galaxy S6 lost the IP67 certification that it had last year, meaning that the Galaxy S5 could survive being submerged in up to 3.3 feet of water and emerge unscathed. That is not the case with the new models.

Have butterfingers and worry that if you buy the Galaxy S6 edge it will end up shattered on the floor? Perhaps watching the embedded video below will help you get over this thinking.



Thanks for the tip!

Since this is in favor of Samsung you should be a little suspicious. Some times we forget about past stuff so soon. Do you remember when every one was bashing apple because of workers' conditions in FOXCONN? Do you also remember that just briefly after official report came out that workers' conditions are even so much worse in SAMSUNG? Well every one forgot about it because the truth is on these websites there are lots of young miserable people who got paid like 1 dollar a day, just to spread and support samsung's quality. I hope you still remember those reports about paid commenters. Believe me I am not a fan of any of them, but Samsung is ...

The video is only 240p so we can't see the posible cracks on the glass or anything else except that the phone still works

Lol puleezee. If anyone pulls a fast one on their consumers, it's Apple. Samsung is probably the smallest offender since their R&D budget is the biggest. If they were really as bad as the haters say, they can spend one dollar on R & D and the rest on marketing and fake 240p videos....lol sigh the haters

Now that's how u do a drop test. Other iDiots on youtube just let it go from waist down. And this is how YOU BUILD A phone a Iphine can't survive a single flop on the ground

Traffic. Look how many views this video already has. By tomorrow, it'll have at least 4x as many views and it'll probably exceed 1 million views if you give it enough days.

If you have youtube partnership, the amount of money from 1 million views is way more than the amount you spend on a new phone.
