Good to know my phone will be safe for those times when I need to take a Rambo knife to it...

Seriously, though. What compels a man to do this? I almost cried at 6:00

I almost thought for a second that guy was gonna cut a finger off playing with those knives. The glass screens on those phones are designed to be scratch resistant so it can take that kind of abuse. Droping the phones however.... Thats a different story....

These tests will only be relevant when they test sand or a material that is actually harder than the glass itself. Right now they just give people a false sense of security.

lol, look at the itty bitty iphone. My wife is going to crapola when she sees my SGIII. I'm already selling her on the white one. Must get her off itunes because I always have to help her and I hate it something fierce.

Who the heck was the genius that did the vid? I think he's one sandwich short of a banquet don't you? What a stupid test and a waste of time. Yikes!

exactly! ive never accidentally tryed to chop my phone in half with a kitchen knife. i have however scratched every phone ive ever had naked (yes, even gorilla glass) from sand and concrete on the construction site. if all your worried about is keys and coins thats one thing but in the real world are many more elements to deal with that are way more harsh.

Am I just being a fanboy, or was he much more hostile towards the S3?

Look below. :)

I think the point of the test is to show you that your phone being in your pocket with your keys wont damage it to all of you who seem to not get the point of a test like this.

Most people don't get the point that keys aren't what scratches the phones. These tests just make people put phones in their pocket with keys and then wonder how their phone got scratched.
