iPhone 6s vs Samsung Galaxy Note 7: test of strength [video]
To do this, we show the tests for resistance to water and the deformation of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Now it’s time to drop the new concrete, and a lot of times, and compare with the iPhone 6s the sustainability of the flagship, such acts of vandalism. It should be noted that this is not the first drop test of Galaxy Note 7, although the previous one looked like not the careful work of the editor, not actual experience. Thus, according to the normal drop-test and comparison with iPhone 6s, the last attempt was far from reality.
The authors of the YouTube channel PhoneBuff decided to compare the Galaxy Note 7 a glass and metal flagship iPhone 6s in the test for impact resistance using a special test device. In the process they came up with all seriousness and used professional equipment in order to avoid the influence of the human factor. Dropped smartphones hitting them on a hard surface in different planes. Both smartphones were dropped from a meter height on rear panel, display, bottom, and side faces.
In the first test with a drop on the back side the advantage was on the side of “Apple” devices. Metal iPhone 6s received only minor scuffs on the back, whereas the Galaxy S7 back glass was covered with visible cracks at the edges.
Upon landing on the lower face of the iPhone 6s has not received visible damages. Galaxy Note 7 is on the contrary found some visible damage to the metal in the area of the nest for the stylus. If you fall on the side faces of the gadgets had suffered little damage, but nothing that would have prevented their functioning.
As expected, in the fourth test at impact display on concrete both smartphone got damaged, and their screens were cracked. However, Gorilla glass 5 Galaxy Note 7 was much stronger than the iPhone 6s. The main cracks from the Korean smartphone appeared on the edges of the front panel.
Since then the iPhone 6s and Galaxy Note 7 remained operational, smartphones have taken part in the bonus round, during which the device was continuously dropped at the display, until the device ceased to function. Gadget Apple ran for five drops until he passed out. The Samsung has lasted for 50 drops, then the experiment decided to stop: the device failed to disable.
Koreans, no doubt, is awarded the title of winner in this experiment. It should be noted that in the iPhone 7, according to rumors, it will use Gorilla glass 5, the results of the drop tests can be different.
