Samsung Galaxy S4′s scratch test

As you might know is the Galaxy S4 the first Galaxy device by Samsung with Corning Gorilla Glas 3. According to Corning the display of the Galaxy S4 will be the strongest display on the market when it arrives. The Galaxy S4 uses a 5.0” Full HD AMOLED display. A Samsung Mobiler tried to scratch the Galaxy S4 with knifes and coins without success. Watch the video below and let us know what you think. Oh yes, we can’t wait until the droptest…

  1. Useless tests

  2. Yeah, he would have to dig all the way through to the display itself to notice any scratches with all this finger filth he spreads ferociously on the display. :) And you’ll not scratch glass with a metal soft like this.

  3. This test doesn’t prove much, but it’s nice to see that the S4 has a super tough screen.
    Despite the fact I’m totally disappointed with my (brazilian) Note II which DOESN’T feature any version of Corning Gorilla Glas (confirmed by Samsung Brazil support).

    • Gorilla Glass 2 in Galaxy S3 is pretty poor, so you’re not missing much.

  4. They should use minerals not just metal. What about impact test?

    • True
      Somebody should introduce “The Sand Test” and skip “The Key and Coin Test”. Just a tiny the spoon of sand and then a bit of rubbing LOL :)

  5. Try Sand Paper and angle grinder :D

    • how about metal drill? is it enough? ROTFL

  6. its all because of the gorilla glass which is a protective layer to ur smartphone
    gorilla glass is useless in dusty regions as dusts and sand is very hard to remove when attached to the display

  7. I have a S3 and i have a scratch in the display.
    Normally i pay attention but as i use 2 GSM S3 for private and Iphone3GS as business phone,(sorry its from the company).
    Sometimes i have both in the pocket normally back on back, but sometimes back iphone on front S3. So i got a scratch.
    In that video the guy is doing very soft even with the knife, so in my meaning this video is useless. Please bring a real test.

  8. take it outside and slide it down the sidewalk face down. That’s a more realistic test.

  9. It’s not that scratch resistant at all. I have only had my S4 for less than 4 days and it already has a nasty scratch on the screen.

  10. Stupid pointless video. If you can’t scratch it with a knife what’s the point trying it with coins? Give me his phone I’ll smash it for him.
