Samsung responds to questions on Galaxy Edge durability

The Samsung Galaxy Edge with its edged screen has been confirmed to launch in the UK, and you must be wondering if the device is durable just like other high-end Samsung-made products. In a blog post, the Korean tech giant has responded to this question.


According to Samsung:

Before we talk about the uniqueness and its purpose of the Galaxy Note Edge, we must address the curiosity people have when they saw the Edge Screen for the first time, the durability. What happens when someone drops it? Wouldn’t the screen on the side break easily? Engineers at Samsung were aware that people might be concerned that the curved display might crack easily. They say that they’ve done more than 1,000 drop tests, not to mention other vigorous durability tests that Samsung is widely recognized for. The Galaxy Note Edge actually undergoes more durability tests – tests designed to simulate the different angles it may fall because of the edge screen and how the edge screen changes the way the device is gripped.

The metal frame plays a significant role here too. It’s pretty clear that the rigid metal helps make the frame stronger. Also, if you take the device, you can see that the metal frame pops out a bit from the screen, so that when the device is dropped, it impacts the metal frame first. Therefore, in terms of the device being dropped, it drops similar to the way regular smartphones are dropped; the display isn’t the first impact point. Basically, the point is, the Galaxy Note Edge is quite durable.
