We’ve all been there. A little trip, slip, or accidental hiccup and that pricey smartphone we just bought goes flying and lands face-first on a frightening surface. Panic ensues as we pick up our device and try to shield our eyes from the inevitable: a shattered screen or damage that renders our beloved possession useless.
A little crash-test-dummies-style video from SquareTrade, sellers of warranties for gadgets and electronics, may give us some peace of mind about how our brand new iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S III will hold up against our clumsiest moments — or not.
SquareTrade pitted the popular smartphones against each other to see which would prove to be the most durable and filmed the process for your entertainment. The iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III are put through the ringer, dropped from up high, tossed into the pool, and tested by household goods.
So how did the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy hold up? You might be surprised — and we don’t want to spoil the fun.
