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...

"Right when she starts her video you can see the time of the phone is 12:10 which turns immediately to 12:11 so i decided to measure..it was exactly 16 seconds...at this point in time she has picked the phone back up and we can see that the time is now 12:12. there is an un-accounted for 40 second time difference..." -Arkchylde95 Here's the problem with your and +Quin Stobbe's theory: 1. Just because you see the phone briefly display 12:10 before showing 12:11 doesn't mean that the actual time is 12:11:01 (:01=1 second). All it means is that the last time the phone went into standby, it was somewhere at 12:10:unknown seconds. Now the phone is turned back on at 12:11:unknown seconds. The phone briefly shows the last time it went into standby. In other words, the lady turns the display on and it changes to 12:11, but we don't exactly know if it's 12:11:17, or 12:11:59, etc. It could be that the display was turned on at 12:11:50, 20 seconds of phone slamming, and then she picks up the phone at 12:12:10. If you don't believe me, try it with your phone. Note the time and put it into standby. Wait a few minutes, and turn it back on. You'll see the previous time momentarily flash before showing the current time. Sorry, but the video seems legit.

To clarify, it appears that she picks the phone back up at 12:11:58 after the final throw, swipes the phone for two seconds, and now it reads 12:12:00 (the video shows 12:12 at the 0:17 mark). So, most likely, the video starts with the real time of 12:11:43.
