If you’ve been using the internet long enough, chances are you’ve come across the Blendtec YouTube channel. For those unfamiliar, the Blendtec YouTube channel hosts a series of hilarious videos called, “Will It Blend?” in which a variety of items, electronic and non-electronic, are stuffed into the blender which then tears it apart. In fact one video even had them blending the Guitar Hero guitar controller. Well the folks at Blendtec are back and this time they have decided to pit both the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5 against each other to see which item can withstand the blending better. Funnily enough, this also speaks to the survey we reported on yesterday where it was suggested that most accidental iPhone damage occurs in the kitchen, which we assume is where most blenders are kept (thanks to our reader Lizardwithhat for pointing that out!).

It should be noted that this is hardly conclusive evidence that speaks to the durability of either device, but if you just want to see phones get blended, then be sure to check it out in the video above! Interestingly it seems that the Samsung Galaxy S3 did take noticeably longer than the iPhone 5 before it started to break apart completely. We have to warn you that it is extremely cringe-worthy to see such expensive items get blended, but hey it might be considered entertainment for some.
