Samsung Galaxy S5 vs iPhone 5S vs HTC One M8 vs Nexus 5 in Drop Test

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs iPhone 5S vs HTC One M8 vs Nexus 5
As soon as new smartphones are released on the market everyone goes nuts in an attempt to see how they handle damage. Unlike other drop tests, the Samsung Galaxy S5 vs iPhone 5S vs HTC One M8 vs Nexus 5 drop test performed by the folks at Square Trade is performed with the help of machines, therefore eliminating the human factor.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 vs iPhone 5S vs HTC One M8 vs Nexus 5 torture begins by dropping the handsets too see which one absorbed the shocks better. The damages made to the Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 are minor, the iPhone 5S escapes with superficial scratches, while the Nexus 5 is really hurt, as the impact shattered its screen.
Next, the four smartphones are pushed on a flat surface to see which one slides farther. While the Nexus 5 has the best grip, the HTC One M8 is the most slippery device, making it more prone to slipping off tablets.
Finally the devices are dropped into water too see which one handles it better. After 10 seconds under water, the speakers of the Nexus 5 and the HTC One M8 stopped working, while the Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 5S seem to be working just fine. You shouldn’t forget that the Samsung handset it’s IP67 certified, meaning it’s water resistant up to 1 meter and 30 minutes.
You can find the drop test video at the end of the article. Bonus: Samsung Galaxy S5 vs iPhone 5S vs HTC One M8 vs Nexus 5 specs heat-to-head.
