Galaxy S10+ Vs iPhone XS Max: Samsung’s 2019 Flagship with Gorilla Glass 6 Loses to Apple’s 2018 Flagship in Drop Test Durability
If there’s one thing that people wish for is when a new flagship phone is released, it drops them to see whether or not they break. Obviously, they are doing as a result of the product of glass, however, it’s the peak of the drop and also the survival rate that people find interesting. Samsung Galaxy S10+ is the hottest new Android phone around and the obvious question was whether or not it is more robust than the iPhone XS Max.
As it seems, it wasn’t, despite the Galaxy S10+ rocking Gorilla Glass 6.
The test was carried out by YouTuber PhoneBuff, who took the 2 flagship phones and then carried 4 drop tests. The point of these was to drop each phone on their back panels, with both devices suffering breakage. Sadly, the Galaxy S10+ didn’t hold up as it’s iPhone counterpart.
The same is often aforementioned concerning the subsequent user took a look at the phones dropped onto one of their corners. And yet Again, the Galaxy S10+ came out the worst. Around three tests saw the phones land face down, and once more each device broke. As a result of the drop, the Galaxy S10+’s built-in fingerprint device ceased working, that is to be expected.
The final tests saw 10 consecutive face-down drops with the Galaxy S10+ really able to continue operating to some extent throughout. The iPhone XS GHB failing on the third fall.
After all this and a lot of broken flagship phones than we have a tendency to ever wish to see once more, PhoneBuff scored the iPhone XS Max with 36 total points, whereas the Galaxy S10+ managed 34. Given Samsung’s claims that its new flagship is “the most durable smartphone glass in the planet,” the results are quite attention-grabbing.
