iPhone 4S vs Galaxy S III vs HTC One X drop test reminds us again not to drop Samsung's bundle of joy

Now we have another video, which throws in the HTC One X with its polycarbonate unibody in the mix. The three phones get dropped from both waist and shoulder heights, which are the typical scenarios we do every day here in the office when the sweltering heat gets to us...

The drops were not uniform throughout the different phones.

Try Nokia's 5300 son, the 3310, It's so durable it can withstand a nuclear explosion :)

No matter what anyone says, people still buy the S3! The sales prove that.

Unfortunately, even after you drop your iPhone 4S and it survives, you then pick it up and its still an iPhone 4S. Now if you could drop it and it transformed into a Samsung Galaxy S3, you'd be hearing iPhones hitting the pavement for the next month.

I can think of a few reasons I'd break an iPhone.

She should of dropped the phones with two hands so they wouldn't twist in the air. The phones seldom landed on the corresponding surface.

I would be nice to actually be able to SEE the phones.

I like how "shoulder height" is over her head.

If they used a more appealing model to do this test I would have toughed it out but as-is I lasted 17 seconds

Notice how the shoulder height drop elevated for the other than I4? Maybe Lebron's

These are all matter of personal opinion, however giving the opportunity
and the MEANS to any of the two phones I will go for Samsung GSIII since it has a removable battery and expandable memory.the Galaxy S III camera is definitely the superior camera.I heard that Galaxy S III and iPhone 4S used the same 8M pixel image senor from Sony.read another briefed comparison of the One X and Galaxy S III here.http://www.careace.net/2012/05/16/superphone-​showdown-samsung-galaxy-s-iii-vs-htc-one-x/
