Samsung Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6... in a boiling hot water test?

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6... in a boiling hot water test?
What is it about sadistically destroying expensive gadgetry that holds such an inexplicable appeal to us? Tens of millions of us flocked to see the iPhone 6 get manhandled and eventually bend beyond recognition months ago, and, in a matter of just 48 hours, a quarter of a million or so viewers have already shouldered through a cruel, 4 minute-long cruel video that pits the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Apple iPhone 6... in a boiling hot water test!

Courtesy of YouTuber and (serial gadget torturer) TechRax, the new production goes to lengths few others have. The two flagships are put into a frying pan with an inch or so of boiling water in it to test which of the two can handle as extreme conditions better. As it turns out, it's a tie, though Samsung's device does hold its own for a while longer, whilst the iPhone 6 turns off almost instantly. Of course, one could argue that shutting down in such scenarios is preferable to staying online, but the results are identical either way – both phones are eventually ruined.

Can you make it through without flinching?
