Drop Test: Does The iPhone 5 Or Samsung Galaxy Fare Better?

Posted: Updated:

If you were to drop your iPhone 5 on the pavement, what do you think would happen? How about your Samsung Galaxy S3? A man in Hong Kong put both devices to the test.

A video posted on YouTube by "AndroidAuthority" has more than seven million views.

The video shows the man with both devices, who boasts that he wanted to make the drop test "as realistic as possible."

The man is seen dropping the new iPhone first from his waist - as if he was taking the phone out of his pocket.

The Galaxy is then put to the test using the same method.

Both phones were dropped on what appears to be cobblestone.

Both phones suffered minimal damage, mainly scratches and some damage to the screen, according to the video. Both devices appeared to still function.

You'll have to decide for yourself if the video has a slight bias towards one phone or another.

You can watch the video above.
