Smartphone, meet your maker! Galaxy S7 edge gets thoroughly annihilated by a hydraulic press

There is something oddly satisfying in watching other people destroy hot new gadgets with heavy-duty machinery. Such a hydraulic press provided an entertaining feast for our eyes the other day as it turned a classic and meme-inspiring Nokia 3310 into a regular pancake. Pure fun, right?

But the fun is totally not over yet. It seems that while we were enjoying the death of a Nokia, vinyl skin maker Slickwraps had been making a similar and way more dramatic video in complete secrecy. Dubbed 'Death of a Galaxy', it features a brand new Galaxy S7 edge clad in a carbon fiber Slickwraps' vinyl skin and a tremendous hydraulic press capable of exerting roughly 7000psi (~4921t/m²). 

That's a lot of pressure, and needless to say, the Galaxy S7 edge does not fare well against such a monumental force. Witness the chaos that ensues when a smartphone meets a hydraulic press!

I see you were on point with the thorough annihilation. I hope the guy didn't inhale too much of those battery fumes.

He touched it with bare hands! That's dangerous with some chemical exposure on skin.

He needs to hydraulic press his brain first, then think about smashing smartphones. That'll make a hella display!
