Note 10+ beats the iPhone XS Max in machine drop test

Clad entirely in the latest and toughest Gorilla Glass 6 edition, the new Galaxy Note 10+ should be able to withstand the most honest drops from pocket heights even on rough surface but is that indeed the case?
We'll spare you the suspense - when the Note 10+ gets machine-dropped next to the iPhone XS Max which also uses a similar form of toughened glass for its back and front, it survived with flying colors and continued working afterwards. That much couldn't be said for the S10+, for instance, whose finger scanner refused to work and it got beat by the same XS Max after the drops, so there is progress.
phone has Gorilla Glass 6 protection only at the front, and not the rear housing, so the Note 10+ now has a definitive advantage in that regard.In defense of the S10+ (but not of Samsung), the
While the Note 10+ still cracked more than the XS Max when dropped on its back, the weight balance prevents it from plopping face down in other tests, and it retained its frontal look and display functionality better than the iPhone, so it won the overall machine drop test rounds.
Lets' not forget that the Note 10+ has a pre-installed factory screen protector, as flimsy as it might seem, but it has been removed beforehand and the screen still held up better than the iPhone. Samsung has apparently defended the display better than Apple from the get-go and still we wouldn't advise carrying without a case on, as these puppies' prices are not for the faint of heart.

What does the screen protector has to do with the drop test? The Note was dropped without the screen protector, so the title of this article is wrong.

This is ridiculous! People who bought flagships always buys a case and protector. Samsung should opt making curve displays, there’s no benefit at all. Just make a flat screen phones and all good. This curve screen makes the phone vulnerable to cracks.

It is getting embarrassing comparing iPhones to the Note 10, The latter is so far ahead. Speed tests, battery drain, charging, specs, cameras and network tests are all embarrassing the iPhone, showing how overrated and overpriced it really is. Apple needs to serious upgrade IOS and iPhones and reduce the price to get anywhere near the top of the smartphone world.
