Samsung shows how strong the Galaxy Note 4 is by using a three-point bend test and a human weight test

Samsung has conducted a “three-point bend test”, as well as a “human weight test” to prove how durable the Note 4 is. The latter test simulates the handset being repeatedly (hundreds of times) sat on by a 220 pounds (100 kg) person. Of course, the Note 4 bends in both tests, but it regains its initial shape with no damaging effects, according to Samsung. The handset maker says that the secret behind the Note 4’s durability is related to its metal frame (including a magnesium bracket) and a “mutually reinforcing structure between parts.”
Samsung didn't comment on the Note 4 hardware gap issue that we reported about a few days ago - likely because this is, in fact, a "necessary manufacturing feature" rather than an issue.
The Galaxy Note 4 went on sale at the end of September in South Korea, and will be released in 140 other markets around the world by the end of this month. In the US, all major carriers will offer the Note 4 starting mid-October.

Excellent quality phone, this. Doesn't bend permanently under stress and 100kg test. iBend on the other hand..... Btw, the ad at the beginning is funny too. Props to Samsung. Note 4 FTW.

+1 Even i think the same. But it's a mere hope that at some point of time in future #Note series becomes waterproof with use of some special coating inside the Stylus area. Best mobile series of all smartphones in the World though :)

Ouch, poor Apple can't get a break lol. The media and other firms are eating them up over bendgate. But rightfully so. Mediocre products with low-quality material shouldn't be tagged for as much as a $1,000.00. Talk about overpricing and under-delivering on the design, internal hardware, and software front.

The post-Jobs Apple is nothing more than a big money grab until the train finally jumps off the rails. Every decision is made so that it maximizes short term profits.

they arent thinking about innovation, best hardware / software, they still use their old way of thinking: "people wont care about hardware, they will buy my overpriced phone as long as i say its better than the last iphone, they're not that smart anyway :D "

Me too but actually its my 2rd Note though coming from Note2, now the beast #Note4. This will make a healthy competition next year as people who are experiencing #Bend in there iPhone will wait for a good 2 months b4 going to line up for dayzz. So that Apple will make corrections if any in those 2 months. Looking forward to people reaction next year. Whether they will wait for a good review or Blindly go buy iC$$p & suffer later :P

My ip6 is nice... But my OG-Note needs upgraded faaaaast! I hate that the Note isn't 16:10 anymore... 16:9 is cool but I love the wideness of the Note 1. "Phablets Users Unite" O.o

True, that is one thing that has always bugged me about the Notes after it. It was one of the main attractions to me how much wider the display was. But of course, everything is in 16:9 now so it only makes sense for them to follow as well.

Well, Note 4 is 8.6mm compared to 7.1mm iPhone plus. That's a lot of difference to build a sturdy device. Anyway, what I really hope for is that the Edge is sturdy because I want it so badly! :)

But the problem is, when is a phone just too thin? I like having a little heft on the phone for durability and grip. A few grams of extra weight is not a big deal if I can have better grip, durability, and battery endurance.
