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;)

So lame. Like others have already said, the iPhone was freakin' bouncing around like crazy so of course it got way more scratches. Also really stupid to assume the iPhone doesn't have Gorilla Glass. There is enough evidence to suggest they do on their phones and tablets. Apple doesn't tout other companies they partner with, that's why they don't mention LG making the retina display or Sony making the camera sensor. It's most likely Gorilla Glass VS Gorilla Glass, which is really pointless. You can probably attribute other factors as well, including the iPhone's lack of a lip around the screen, and its density and small size which helped it bounce better. The worst part was the guy's voiceover was 200% PR stunt worthy. My Samsung S8500 Wave and S2 both scratched up and they were both Gorilla Glass.

I agree with you that Gorilla Glass vs Gorilla Glass would be pointless (unless Gorilla Glass vs Gorilla Glass 2). But anywai, this test was not Gorilla Glass vs Gorilla Glass, it was Samsung Galaxy S III vs iPhone 4s. ;)

Either there's a lot of rich assholes around or a certain sponsor *cough* is giving out free phones and setting up pseudo-PR websites acting as third parties. Whatever the case, they should've sent both phones to ME instead. $700 a piece. Yeesh.

Ok this is silly. This guy is talking about how the SIII uses Gorilla Glass...the i phone has had it since 2007. The main reason the Apple took this "test" so badly is it's styling.The i phone has the edges of the screen exposed slightly. Gorilla glass, like tempered glass is more easily damaged from the edge. The SIII has a case that wraps around the edge of the glass. That being said I think the test was silly. A drop test would be more useful. Oh and before all the Galaxy fans jump on me...I am one. I have an SIII and I make fun of Apple users when I can.

Only the first version of Iphone used Gorilla Glass. 3G, 3GS,4,4S didn't. and Apple will use it again on IP5. That's why you can see how easily Iphone4, 4S can break the screen

Actually the Uploader closed his account, or at least that's what youtube said, so i didn't see, but how would anyone benefit from this video, you would find it useful if it was a bullet-proof glass or something like that but smartphones, I highly doubt that !!!
How about you have fun destroying the ES8000 Samsung Smart TV, that would be very helpful for someone whose considering buying one.

"What do you think will happen to the T.V if it was dragged behind a car , it will be destroyed , ohh no, I won't buy one then" !
