Samsung posts stress test video, watch the Galaxy S III and Note II get tortured

Turns out, the Korean company is doing some rigorous testing. Using the Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II, the company has posted a video taking us through all the tortures the two devices had to endure before going on sale.
The testing includes buttons pushed thousands and thousands of times, the devices twisted, sprayed with water, and put in a churning machine filled with edgy things (is that real corn?!) trying to scratch the screen. Take a look at all the horror right below, and rest assured - that device you bought is definitely ready to take a beating.

Much better than apple who likely never bothered about this for $$$... Let's see if it can beat nokia in torture testing.

No offence, but Nokia has still something going to make it even sturdier than these two phones!

Errr...why isnt it Note 2 on water spraying test? Samsung wanna cheat on that? Shows it was some kind of At&T phone and note Note 2. A big failure video test. Other else, it looks promising, but in real world, it wont be the same and I already got a tiny scratch on the screen at outer edge. Nothing to disturb with, if not looking hard with bright light on that area.

Even though its "cheap plastic " i.e. polybcarbonate back cover, plastic frame and gorilla glass front, I can say the quality of production is definitely noticeable on my s3. Samsung put a lot of attention in assembling everything together. Everything is precise, symetric, and working perfectly (knocks on wood )

With all the water test this device went though. What happens if it is submerged. I heard of people dropping their phone in the toilet

This is lie, big fat lie. 100 kg person sits on Note 2 and it doesn't brake hahahahaha SGS3 scratches like hell (glass like plastic is a no go), though it could survive bit of rain, and maybe buttons are durable, true Rugby PRO is tough phone. But everything else is just LIE...

This is absolute crap by Samsung, My SIII without a single drop in ground and was in silicon case from the first day, I notice a crack near the charging port, There are numerous complaints that frame starts cracking after 2 to 3 months, When i contacted samsung india, they bounced back to me and said its my fault. inorder to replace the frame i need to pay 7200Rs. What the ___...witout any mishandling and single drop it broke, Many have quoted that frame doesnt withstand the heat produced from inside, It starts cracking as the Metallic frame which is actually a plastic..starts melting ..which develops cracks. They didnt show the heat test. SIII has the worst build quality of all Samsung phones. Even Note II has similar design so even it may suffer from those issues. Samsung customer care is the worst , wtihout taking this issue as their rather blaming me for it. Even phone arena has published a articlle, that several users have reported frame crack within weeks, and im experiencing it now. Those who experinecing please try to post this issue in XDA forum.
