Galaxy S6 edge vs a Desert Eagle? You know who wins

Drop tests are all well and good, but there’s no arguing the fact that some people take things too far when they start shooting at a new phone and capture the entire thing on video. The Galaxy S6 edge’s curved glass and metal design isn’t something you would call rugged, and when the phone meets a Desert Eagle pistol, well, you have to see it to believe it.

Using a Phantom Flex4K camera, the guys over at dbrand (maker of skins and cases for smartphones) called in a shooting expert to square off with the Galaxy S6 edge. We’ve seen smartphones being shot with guns before, but we’re not sure we have ever seen a device get as utterly destroyed as the S6 edge did when the bullet met its target. It’s painful to see such a beautiful and costly device get blown to kingdom come, but the video is also a treat to the eyes thanks to the slow-mo effect and the detail captured by the aforementioned camera.

Like the top-rated comment on the video says, you will need to watch the video a few times before you catch all the detail. Hit the play button below to get going with your first viewing, and read our review of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge once you’re done shaking your head.
