Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy SIII Drop Test

Android Authority got their hands on the device they love to hate - the Apple iPhone 5 - and carried out a series of drop tests from different heights. They did the same with the Samsung Galaxy S III to see which one fares better.

The video embedded above shows three individual, real-life drop tests conducted on the latest iPhone, and Samsung flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S III. The iPhone 5 withstood all drops exhibiting only minor scuffs and scratches, whereas the S III saw its display completely shattered. On the last drop test (head hight), the S III even lost the rear shell that covers the battery and other electronics. A sad sight, to say the least.

The news should be welcomed by the Apple fanbase, especially after two generations of all-glass iPhones that could break if dropped from two feet high.
