Enjoying yourselves with those Samsung Galaxy S6 edge hack and smash videos
? Sure you do! Here's one from Chinese smartphone innovator Oppo. Now, unlike the raw, exploitative footage of the Galaxy S6 edge
getting smacked around, what we're seeing here is fully controlled smartphone destruction in a laboratory setting. The official video by Oppo shows how the manufacturers tests its devices as per standard procedure that's part of the production process.
For starters, Oppo puts its smartphones against 55 pounds (25 kilos) of pressure, then drops them onto marble from about 40 inches height and at all their sides. We've given the company props for making some wonderfully sturdy devices before, so it's no surprise that the smartphones in the video take it all like champs. Oppo definitely has the quality control part down cold. Now, it's just a matter of improving its phones in terms of color calibration, camera performance, and some other quirks of its products, and the company is ready for prime time!
