Square Trade have tested out Samsung’s latest smartphones the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9 Plus.
The two handsets are put through a number of tests, this includes number of drop tests, plus a bend test, a tumble test and more.
As we can see from the video both the glass back and the front glass display broke in the drop tests. The other tests that the handsets were put through are a little more extreme than the standard drop tests.
“With the Samsung S9 and S9+, and the iPhone X last year, we’re continuing to see a trend of beautiful all-glass designs that come with a high price tag and high risk of damage from drops and mishaps,” SquareTrade VP Jason Siciliano said. “Our tests and claims data show that even when in cases, they still experience damage. So, while water resistance has improved across the board, all of that glass means that durability has actually gone backward over the past year.”
