You may be tired of flagship bending vids already, but you shouldn’t miss this one, because it’s well produced, features some wicked smartphone torture machinery, and the results are interesting.
Extended warranty provider SquareTrader went on to compare the Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge, iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus in a series of stress tests, which saw the flagships go through dunking, six feet drops, power slides, and the grand finale – 110 pounds of pressure! Obviously, no smartphone can come out of such dire straits unscathed, but there was a clear winner in the trial – the Galaxy S6!
Most notably, the GS6 got through the bend test almost unscathed and managed to bounce back to its natural shape. The same couldn’t be said for its curved compadre – unfortunately, it cracked beyond repair! The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus left with the usual damage, with the 4.7-inch one staying bent, and the 5-5inch iPhone separating near its volume button – the proverbial weak spot.
