Will it break? Samsung Galaxy S screen put to the test

The Samsung Galaxy S has a beautiful 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, but just how tough is it? We recently got convinced that despite Apple's claims of super-tough glass used for the new iPhone 4, it is actually quite breakable. The Galaxy S has the advantage of not being entirely made of fragile material, but still one can't help but wonder if that tempered glass covering the Super AMOLED panel is tough enough to survive a high number of accidental drops.

A Korean website has run an endurance test on the Samsung Galaxy S, and uploaded the video results for your viewing pleasure. We will spare you the suspense - scratching the screen's tempered glass surface is not easy, only a wallpaper knife left marks on it. The phone also survived a few 3 feet (90 cm) drops on asphalt. If it slips from your hand while talking, though – R.I.P., gorgeous screen, it was good knowing you.
