Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4S: Which will win the ultimate drag race scratch test? [video]

by: Bams SadewoAugust 11, 2012

If you think hammer and drop test videos are so passé, you definitely want to check out the following video. Because really, who hasn’t thought about tying two expensive brand new smartphones — the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Apple iPhone 4S — to the back of a moving vehicle? These guys did what some only dare to imagine.

So grab your popcorn now and hit play to see which phone survives being dragged face-down by a drag race car and which will crack to pieces. It’s going to be a short, scratchy and bumpy ride.

(Spoiler alert: Was there any doubt? The Samsung Galaxy S3 wins the drag race scratch test.)

    What a great idea..Drag our phones!!!

    I hate things like this, not because I don’t enjoy seeing the videos but purely from a real world stance. The fact is that yes, the S III suffered very little compared to the iPhone but none of these tests are remotely “real world” … I’m yet to see a test that simulates an actual scenario that could and would happen, instead they are all great for entertainment but prove absolutely nothing when it comes to real world use, i mean, who is ever going to have their phone dragged behind a car !!!

      I’d say drop tests accurately simulate real world situations. There basically isn’t much else that is going to hurt your phone, at least on a daily basis.

    Am I wrong or was that guy just a little too excited for this test? He was completely out of breath afterwards. Like Patrick said, he must be on something

    The SIII might have suffered less visible damage but it might be dead internally when the iphone still works. I hate apple and its products but my point being is that this proved nothing. The drop tests are the best references.

      Exactly, I dropped my S3 last week on the ground. The Gorilla Glass 2 was fine, but the internal LCD was cracked. which gave me a black screen. It’s at Samsung right now getting fixed for $178.00…

  • I feel so smug knowing I have the option to toe my phone to work each day unlike those apple clowns.

  • LOL! was this guy running from the cops or something? He was acting as if he robbed a bank and was waiting for his getaway car. This video was pure comedy!

  • Armin

    what the fuck ?!!!!!!! what the stupid test !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mikael Guggenheim

    Considering how much bigger the phones get each year this is how we’ll have to move them in the future :P
