With the competition between Apple and Samsung being extremely fierce, not just in terms of products, but in the courtrooms as well, we expect that many are wondering just how well the Samsung Galaxy S4 holds up against Apple’s flagship smartphone, the iPhone 5. Given that they both run different operating systems and therefore cater to different types of users and different needs, we guess one way to compare the smartphones would in terms of durability. Is the iPhone 5 more durable than the Samsung Galaxy S4? Well that’s what the folks at insurance firm, SquareTrade, decided to find out.
Basically SquareTrade pitted several devices against each other, namely the iPhone 5 versus the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy S3. The phones were put through several tests, such as being dropped, skidded across a table, and dunked underwater. The tests were designed to roughly simulate the typical accidents that one might encounter in the real life with their smartphones. Either way if you have a couple of minutes to spare and would like to see all three phones being put through their paces, check it out in the video above.
