Galaxy S6 edge survives first drop test
Wondering if your Galaxy S6 edge with its new Gorilla Glass 4 wrap-around design will survive normal drops and falls? A new video has surfaced on YouTube that shows a woman testing out the durability of the Corning glass. The video is not a clear enough reproduction, but it does show a woman with a device that appears to be a Galaxy S6 edge. The woman slams the S6 edge on the floor, only to pick it up and intentionally slam the GS6 edge on its face. Sure enough, not a crack or “spider web” pattern was seen on the device.
Of course, it’s obvious that no display, despite its durability, is truly shatter-resistant, but it shows just how far we’ve come in glass designs. The Galaxy Note 4 contains Gorilla Glass 4 as well, but Samsung must be riding high on confidence to release a device that features Gorilla Glass 4 on both the display and back of it.
Does this video influence you to buy either device, or did you buy a Galaxy S5 and plan to hang onto it until the Galaxy Note 5 or Galaxy S7?
