    I usually like to wait for "Everything Apple Pro" to perform Samsung drop tests, but in the meantime this will do...

    The fact that it cracked easier on the back then the front makes me excited to get this phone. I've dropped my s7 several times on concrete face first and my tech 21 case and screen protector has protected it every time with not so much as a strach put on the device ๐Ÿ˜†

    Ugh. Drop tests on phones make me cringe every time....partly due to the pretty tech getting abused, and also partly due to the 'unscientific' nature of these tests. I guess the end result for the Youtuber is the same though...I watched the video.

    This is why I never ever asked for a glass phone anything besides screen. I'm not interested in chrome sides or anything like it.

    Plastic rules. Glass drools.

    Hmm dropping an all glass phone without a case directly on concrete. I'm shocked there's scratches and cracks :/

    Take care of your phones people. This is a non story as far as I'm concerned.

    you say that, but if you watch the iphone 6s Plus vs s7 edge you'd be as shocked as i was. (i think) i mean, that guy dropped both phones onto concrete from 3 ft, 6ft, 10 ft & then 20 ft and they both fared REALLY well....S7 Edge's FRONT didn't even crack @10 ft!

    If you remember days of S3, phones cracked from 1st drop... Phones are DEFINITELY able to withstand wayyyy more abuse these days and it surprised the hell outta me, thought it might y'all too, which is why i shared that video & the one below as well :
    )

    (And don't judge from the cover photo, that was after the 5th drop at 20 feet onto concrete warehouse floor)

    I hate these drop tests.
    It really doesn't prove anything that anyone with common sense can figure out.
    Just put a case on it with a screen protector and forget about it.

    The Droid z force advertises shatter proof, not indestructible. The display can still be damaged, it just won't shatter

    I am curious about this too - have a Tech21 cover on my Turbo - very happy with it.
    IF the local VZW store has a silver 7 - I will have one in 4 hours and 51 minutes - but who's counting?

    I do get your point, but your missing ours. It's a BS test. There is no consistent testing method. A few degrees of angle changes everything. Releasing it by hand alone makes the test invalid. Remember gg5 is based on 80% survival. This could have fallen into the 20%, which is a lot of cracks. Remember the rest of the drop tests he did on it were fine. Also watch the rest of the drop videos. They beat the heck out of it with a full tool box with no significant damage.

    So in real use, yes it might break, but the odds of it are less than before. Add in a case and the odds of it shattering drops down very close to zero.

    I never ever understand why these people waste $900 on a device simply to damage it it's stupid, imo and a waste of a phone that someone else could have had and appreciated it a lot better than these idiots. I don't have to see a drop test to know that my phone, made of entirely of glass, will break. That's just the law of physics. Everyone knows that

    Glass breaks, in other news the sun rises in the morning.
    Gorilla glass has always been kind of a joke, even the latest version says it survives falls 80% of the time.
    For the average user it's a complete crap shot and the reason drop tests mean nothing. The guy who does the scratch test with the different picks is slightly better than that.

    This is why I use a case and screen protector on every phone I own, except my backup a blu R1 HD
