Which blends better, the Apple iPhone 5 or the Samsung Galaxy S III? Let's go to the tape

Which blends better, the Apple iPhone 5 or the Samsung Galaxy S III? Let's go to the tape
For the uninitiated, Blendtec is a blender manufacturer that likes to shove gadgets into their products to see if they will blend. For example, back in 2011 (oh those far away times), the company shoved an Apple iPad 2 into a blender and turned it on. With the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S III considered the top two handsets on the planet at the moment, it was decided to make "Will it Blend?" into a competition.

As you might imagine, both phones were a pile of rubbish inside of two minutes. Blendtec's Tom Dickson had a couple of cute lines. Removing the top of the blender containing the chopped up iPhone, a wisp of smoke came out. "Siri smoke," Dickson called it. And opening the blender containing the Samsung Galaxy S III, Dickson said, "It smells like Jelly Beans." It must have been one of those international models that was recently updated to Android 4.1.

After viewing such a painful thing, all we can utter is those five words that separate us from the wild animals. Don't try this at home.

I had a computer monitor (in fact it was my last one before the 24" Sony Google TV I'm using now) The Asus LS201, there are videos of people shooting arrows at it (steel tipped ones!) and they bounce off, HELL of a monitor, had a GREAT picture too!

Exactly, every i"person"(apparently I cannot make a joke on these boards or face getting banned) says "samsung is just cheap plastic that will never hold up" thanks blendtec.. now I have a great reference video to point them to.

you know what holds up better.. dog turds. hey Styrofoam plates dont shatter when you drop them either. the video is just funny, if you use this to reference anything it would render your point as invalid as the "obama free phone youtube video"

I think the Blendtec won. I love my Blendtec! Part of me is really tempted to throw my wife's phone into our Blendtec once she upgrades. Stupid Sony POS...

I thought Samsung didn't use premium materials, and the iPhone was indestructible, according to the what the people with iphones say.

Stupidest video ever. Just stick to the drop tests, which is realistic. Who the hell drops their phone n a blender.

Yes because everything will drop exactly the same way everytime...sooooo realistic and accurate

With all honesty, I'd say this is a more definitive test than a drop test. At least you have a controlled space and the same type of damage.
