The other day we saw the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge in a drop test video and maybe it wasn’t the most scientific drop test, but it looks like Samsung wants in on the action as they have released an official drop test video of their own which you can check out for yourself in the video above.
Now for the most part the drop test conducted by Samsung themselves aren’t that different from the rest we’ve seen, but in Samsung’s case, they have relied on machines to drop their phones which will help make the testing more accurate and consistent. So far Samsung’s tests show us what we already know, that the phones can take a few drops here and there.
According to Samsung, “Galaxy S6 and S6 edge aren’t invincible, but they are capable of taking some hits – even when they fall on their sides or backs. The 6013 aluminum metal frame is designed to hit the surface before the glass upon fall to protect the display – even Galaxy S6 edge. Both Galaxy S6 and S6 edge feature Gorilla Glass 4, one of the toughest glasses available on mobile devices. Also, the components like the frame, glass, bracket, etc are structured to share the shock from first and follow-up impacts, ultimately reducing the possibility of breakage.”
The company had also previously released an official video showing their own take on the bend test. This was in response to a video SquareTrade had uploaded earlier which showed the Galaxy S6 Edge being bent by a machine.
