iphone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 Drop Test

As you can see above, the iPhone 5 is the clear winner. The strong aluminum metal frame of the iPhone 5 prevented it from sustaining heavy damage. The plastic body of the Samsung Galaxy S3 got easily damaged.

Most people would tend to accidentally drop their phones 4 feet and below. The iPhone 5 suffered from a few dents and scratches, but it’s still working 100% and did not sustain any cracks on its glass display.

While the Samsung Galaxy S3’s display partially suffered from a drop above 4 feet. And beyond 5 feet, the phone’s back cover what separated from its body. Sometimes, in some instances the battery or the sdcard is ejected from a drop this high.

I think the iPhone 5 is the most durable phone Apple has ever made. But it’s not all invincible. If you throw the iPhone 5 or drop it from above 6 feet, the glass display will eventually break. I saw that from another iPhone 5 drop test video.

The iPhone 5 proves to be the more durable phone compared to the Galaxy S3. But this does not conclude the the iPhone 5 is superior compared to the S3. The main factor we should look into is their respective features and specifications. Which one do you like best?

What do you think? Will you buy the iPhone 5 or the Samsung Galaxy S3? And if you have actual experience of accidentally dropping your phones, please do hit the comment section below.
