After being much criticized for using plastic over metal in its phones, Samsung is pushing hard to convince people that despite lacking the metal power, the Galaxy S4 is a rather tough phone. The company has uploaded a grueling test video of the flagship Galaxy S4. The video shows the toughness and durability test of the phone which has passed through some drop test, water test and other tests to prove the strength and robustness of the smartphone.
The phone has been shown surviving through several drop tests including it being dropped from a height at several random angles on a metal floor, some free fall tests and tumble test by dropping it down on stairs. Then it has also been shown clearing some pressure tests to check its strength. To show the durability of the screen, the phone has been shown withstanding the impact of a hard metal ball being dropped on its screen.
And if you think it is just Sony highlighting the water test on its Xperia phones, well the video shows that even the Samsung Galaxy S4 can survive the water tests. And to show its level of water resistance, an active S4 has been submerged in water only to show it functioning properly later after taking out from the tank.
The phone has also cleared several other tests including humidity and temperature based weather proved test to survive the wear and tear of regular use.
