THE Samsung Galaxy S8 has been pitted against the Apple iPhone 7 Plus in a brutal new drop test on YouTube. But the outcome of the viral video will probably surprise you.
The Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7 are the latest and greatest smartphones from Samsung and Apple, respectively. The two flagship phones have very similar specs, but dramatically different designs.
Samsung Galaxy S8 has a beautiful dual-curved display that bleeds to the very edge of the chassis, ensuring the physical footprint of the device remains manageable – despite the size of the screen. Samsung has dubbed this stunning edge-to-edge design, Infinity Display.
Both the front and back of the Galaxy S8 range will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
The Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8inch Quad HD+ display that packs an impressive 570 pixels per inch. While there is a larger 6.2inch variation, dubbed Galaxy S8+.
Both of these display sizes are larger than the latest iPhone range, which ships with either a 4.7inch or 5.5inch screen.
And while the Galaxy S8 has almost eradicated the bezels around its display, the iPhone 7 still has thick bands around its display.
These are used to house the front-facing camera, proximity sensors, stereo speakers, and Home Button, which has an embedded fingerprint scanner.
From the outside, the larger bezels and metal case design might make the iPhone appear more resistant to drops than the all-glass, edge-to-edge design of the Samsung Galaxy S8.
But that’s not the case, according to a new drop test published by renown YouTube account EverythingApplePro.
But if the video is accurate, both smartphones should be able to withstand a few accidental knocks and drops before you have to shell-out for a costly display repair.
