All five Galaxy Note flagships hit the floor in this drop test video

We are currently in the fifth year of the existence of Samsung’s Galaxy Note lineup, with the Galaxy Note 5 featuring an exquisite metal and glass design that’s leaps and bounds above all of its predecessors. Not content with simply testing the Note 5’s resilience to being dropped on the floor, YouTube channel TechRax decided to put all five Galaxy Note flagships to the torture to see which one comes out on top.

A broken screen is a common element for all the devices in the drop test, with the Galaxy Note 5 actually making it out with the least damage to its front glass (though the touchscreen did stop working, something that wasn’t the case with the other Notes.) It didn’t fare so well on the back side, but we all knew this is what we were getting into when the market forced Samsung to leave plastic behind for its top-end smartphones.

It’s always painful to watch these drop tests, and seeing five smartphones being willfully destroyed is even worse. Check out the drop test in the video below; the video’s a bit too long, so if you’re only interested in the results you can skip to the 9:56 mark.

” with the Galaxy Note 5 featuring an exquisite metal and glass design that’s leaps and bounds above all of its predecessors.” – Erm are you serious, Note 5 is a change in direction, it has less features, but is slightly faster and for some more “premium” then the last generation. leaps and bounds makes it sound like it is an upgrade over the previous generation, it is not it is a change in direction, that no doubt will appeal to some, while others feel abandoned dropping features that they rely on.

“when the market forced Samsung to leave plastic behind for its top-end smartphones” Actually we expected them to use their brains and go with aluminium back covers.

“when the market forced Samsung to leave plastic behind for its top-end smartphones.”

Just a blind fanboy statement in defence of Samsuck.

The market asked for premium materials, not brittle glass on the back.

I really love(d) this company. My watches even from SWC. Now, they’re going back to an era before 1995.

My moto x 2014 cracked like the note5 did, it initially worked but is was as if some invisible viscous liquid was between the glass and the amoled and everywhere this liquid oozed to the pixels slowly died untill the screen was completely black. The process took around a week to complete…..
