iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S III, they are both very fragile. Also in this test is just to much accidental chances, as YouTube video it is good but as a test it is almost worthless.
In my opinion Samsung Galaxy S II was build stronger than Galaxy S III.

He left the battery out of the S3 too. You can clearly see the 4S hits something and starts bouncing around (hence the damage). As the S3 starts to bounce he tells him to stop the car. So sad.

"As the S3 starts to bounce he tells him to stop the car."

It is only assumption that he told him to stop a car just because Samsung Galaxy S III started to jump.

I know you would love to see how iPhone win, but this test is almost worthless because there is to much accidental chances so, don't be sad. :D

Oh I see.

If that's how you want to play it, I have no interest. Sorry. I mean I saw your avatar but I just gave you the benefit of the doubt....

I will just add; The reason why he stopped the car is actually irrelevant (ignoring the guys website, name and manner at the start of the video). The fact was he did it, and that's not an assumption.

Oh, no! Have I said something wrong ? :(

"(ignoring the guys website, name and manner at the start of the video)."

Yes, I know. :D

"The fact was he did it, and that's not an assumption."

Yes, he did that and it is not an assumption, but the reason why he did that may be only assumption (probably you are right but it is still only assumption). :P

agree with you.. i dont like samsung but s2 really looks great (but my first impression to it was "is that an iPhone?" sorry i am not as techie before) and s2 looks more premium and good looking than s3! while my first impression to s3.. without its quad core i think buying an asha phone is better than this phone!

Talking about money wasting, excellent example:

I know he also earns money from YouTube videos, but I'm not sure if that much that he can break so much devices.

In these kind of crash tests it is better to fix the phones and then leave a heavy ball or something like that.this makes all the tests fair;)

Exactly what mobile device is designed to withstand being drug till they break. Think that's about $1,500 worth of phones too. Total idiot.

wow this guy was a little too excited about this test. Probably hasnt gotten laid in years.

Jeff, please talk to your friend. Help him get a life. Dont let him tie strings to your car with gorilla tape while you drive him around the block. Youre just encouraging him :/
