SquareTrade has put the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Apple iPhone 6, and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus through a series of torture tests (bend, drop, dunk, and slide test). After the test SquareTrade concludes that the S6 is “the new phone to beat for durability.”
Here’s the video:
The Samsung Galaxy S6 sports a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) and a pixel density of 577 ppi, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) made by Sony, a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32/64/128 GB of internal storage, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, LTE Cat.6 (300/50Mbps) connectivity, support for wireless charging, and a 2,550 mAh battery. It measures 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8mm and weighs in at 138 g. It runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box with a 64-bit TouchWiz UI slapped on top.
Not only does the Galaxy S6 sport impressive hardware and a more premium look and feel, it is also a pretty durable device, beating the competition and its edged counterpart.
