Samsung Galaxy S4 (Google Edition) goes through the rings of hell
posted by Victor H. / Jun 13, 2013, 3:29 AM
In this latest video Samsung shows what the Galaxy S4 went through before arriving to market. It’s a lot. Most of the tests are automated of course but nonetheless it’s very impressive seeing the S4 survive drops, temperature changes and the elements.
We get to see the phone being smashed on, stepped on and even submerged in water for a few seconds (do not try this at home) and it survives. Interestingly, you could see that Samsung is using a Google Edition Galaxy S4 in these tests as well. Take a look below.
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1900 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2600 mAh(17h 3G talk time)

I don't think its the Google edition. Look @ 1:20 you can see the custom ROM screen. Also, since GS4 Google edition is launched first in USA it would've been posted on SamsungUSA which this video isn't (but I mayble wrong) Perhaps Victor H. could confirm if SamsungTomorrow is an official Samsung's youtube account ?

Nice video presentation but I have friends who own a galaxy and I can see many of them are having the same issue about the shiny thing on the side/corner starting to be peeled off(sort of like rusting but not exactly)

Yeah my sister's S2 also started to lose the chrome paint on the plastic, i really thought it was metal but it isn't, plastic like the rest of the phone. Have seen some S3s too with that problem. Hope Samsung starts using real metal so this problem dissapears.

Because it's cheaply made! Haven't had that with my devices (obviously it's not Samsung)
