To describe the relationship between Apple and Samsung as ‘troublesome’ would be an ineffective euphemism, at best. The two companies are fierce rivals in business, whether it’s about patents, tablets and, of course, smartphones. Lobbyists in each camp swear their brand is better, but don’t take their word for it. Let’s put the products to the test.
SquareTrade did just that, grabbing Apple’s iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy S3 and plunging both units into a series of drop tests to see which model would fare better.
The tests included dropping both handsets onto a cement ground; placing the phones in the hands of rowdy kids; and putting both models on the roof of a car before driving off. Each challenge replicated common causes for smartphone damage.
So, which branded phone came out on top? Check out the full video below and assess the conducive carnage.
