If you’re wondering what would happen to your brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 or your Apple iPhone 6 if you accidentally (or intentionally) dropped it in a pot of boiling, you don’t have to worry about wasting your hard-earned cash on the rather expensive devices by trying it yourself. YouTube channel TechRax has performed a boiling water torture test on the two.
TechRax, a YouTube channel known for putting devices through torture tests, put the two flagships into a frying pan with around an inch of boiling water to see if any of the two would survive the ordeal. The results? The Apple iPhone 6 shut down almost instantly, while the Samsung Galaxy S6 lasted a little longer. The question is, did they work after? The answer is no. The two were rendered useless after the test.
Here’s the video:
So what’s the moral of the story? Make sure you keep your Samsung Galaxy S6 or Apple iPhone 6 away from boiling water or any type of hot liquid.
You may think that this test is pretty useless, but if you think about the number of times people spill hot coffee on their devices, the data of this test is pretty valuable.
