Samsung has decided to run another durability test, this time, the “Drop Test” is performed on the latest flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge to show their durability.
The Drop Test shows the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge dropped from a certain height on a concrete floor by Samsung’s smartphone Drop Test machine.
Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge aren’t invincible, but they are capable of taking some hits judging from the video. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge both feature Gorilla Glass 4, one of the toughest glasses available on mobile devices.
According to Samsung, the components of the Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge; like the frame, glass, bracket and others are also structured to share the shock from first and follow-up impacts, ultimately reducing the possibility of breakage. The 6013 aluminum metal frame is designed to hit the surface before the glass if the device is dropped in order to protect the display – even Galaxy S6 edge.
The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have both passed the same rigorous reliability tests previous Galaxy devices have endured. The Galaxy devices are designed to take on even extreme situations users will seldom encounter.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are made with tough materials, these phones will break if you try harder, as will the face of your watch and the windshield on your car, says Samsung.
So, instead of leaving it to chance, we have gathered some screen protectors and covers officially made by Samsung to protect your new Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge devices.
