Samsung shows us what happens when the Galaxy S6 edge is dropped on its edge

Samsung shows us what happens when the Galaxy S6 edge is dropped on its edge
We've already seen quite a few Galaxy S6 and S6 edge drop tests (here, here, and here), and now Samsung has revealed its own test, not long after also posting an official bend test. Samsung wants us to see what happens to the Galaxy S6 edge when the handset is dropped exactly on its side - which, because of the curved display, may seem fragile.

As the video embedded below is showing, when dropped from chest-height on its side, the S6 edge doesn't suffer any damage. The video is also showing that the S6 and S6 edge can be dropped on the back (from the same height) without being damaged. Of course, we were expecting this, as previous drop tests - the ones not done by Samsung - have shown that the new Galaxy flagships should both fare pretty well if you drop them in real life.

All in all, the combination of aluminum and Gorilla Glass 4 (which covers the front and back of the S6 and S6 edge) seems to be doing a good job at keeping Samsung's new flagship phones damage-free.

Drop tests aside, if you want to know more about the two new handsets, you should check out our Galaxy S6 review and Galaxy S6 edge review.

Samsung is literally the best Company in the world Why you ask? 1. They care about their consumers 2. They build the most fantastic devices 3. They innovate 4. They build f**king vacuums 5. They build true relationships with their fan base That fruity Company wish they could ever compare. Too bad they are too busy sucking butts.

1. They don't give updates in time - if at all 2. They try to cheat at every corner consumers aren't immediately aware of 3. They copy so shamelessly 4. They lick carriers' balls and bloat their software 5. They let their workers die on leukemia.

1- they are the fastest Android OEM to deliver updates 2-mind to illustrate more on this point? 3- they do copy like every other OEM, but shamelessly?? We are talking about Samsung here, not Apple ;) 4- Well, i am with you on this one, it irritates me when i see carriers blaot on Samsung and android flagships, and what's worst is them slapping their logo on the back of the phone. 5- Go check all the violations that is going in Foxcon, from riots, to people dying, or even committing suicide. Oh and don't give that crap that Foxcon isn't owned by Apple, because of it wasn't for Apple, Foxcon would've closed their doors long time ago.

Sammy's own test? Very credible. You have to be stupid trusting a company that cheated almost every third party benchmark.

The test sacrificed over 59 Galaxy S6 phones "Hey guys! This one actually survived!"

Yet many people believe EVERYTHING Apple says. It's just the same for both sides really.

Don't care if can survive 100 strikes of a sledgehammer. It won't sell well because of the two key stolen features.

Samsung seems kinda defensive, posting these drop vids, and rebuttal vids.

Yes they are, just like most of the phone companies. #only9bent

They try to prevent a bendgate fiasco by comunicating with the consumers, and ensures them that the phone won't break when you sneeze at it.

changing camera angle every single second will convince me that this video is legit

So no one is going to comment on the fact that they didn't drop the phone on the front? The point of Gorilla Glass 4 (which is on the front and back) is that it should be able to handle 100 or so drops from that height. AND they are showing that the screen is so amazing, but we won't drop it on the front to see if it breaks. And yes, the 3 billion camera angles and switching every 2 seconds does not make it one bit believable or reasonable.
