Inside Samsung’s torture labs: video shows how the Note 2 is stress tested

Samsung Stress Test

We are probably missing something here given the language of the video, nonetheless, it is still rather interesting to watch. The video is a Samsung released video and it offers a look at how some of the stress testing is done. And while some aspects of the video are probably not all that surprising, it seems to be worth the few minutes it will take to watch.

Some of the goodies shown in the video include a button pressing machine and even a fake backside that tests how well a device will hold up if it is sat on. Samsung also does rain testing as well as testing with keys and coins. And if the rain wasn’t enough, they also take what appears to be a hose and spray the devices. There is also a drop test.

Of course, all that being said, we are fairly certain that device tests and drop tests that are done by parties other than Samsung are a bit more fun to watch. After all, while this is probably comforting to Samsung device users on some level, we suspect some enjoy the destruction that can be seen in videos such as this a bit more.

  • Heh at the button pushing. I love how it’s an automated finger.

    My S III it’s totally broken after a fall from 20 cms this is less than the height of my bed! The test should include a fall to the floor of a restroom it won’t pass !!

      have you seen those drop tests that people do? sgs3 did okay (not as good as the almighty tank Nokia Lumia 920 though) and I’m pretty sure that the screen doesn’t crack from 20 cm drop unless there’s something really hard on the floor that it hit!

    arturo, my Note II is cracked from a ~20cm fall to a bathroom floor as well.

    also, my Note II stylus is exhibiting finicky random presses without screen contact and it’s less than one month old. =/

      have you repaired your screen if it cracked, because that can cause the problems :)

    My GSIII has fallen off my bed(top bunk, about 5 feet, or ~1.5m) multiple times without even a scratch. Granted it was onto carpet, but it’s right up against the wall. I’ve also dropped it about three feet onto a wooden floor without any major damage except for some light scratches to the screen protector, which took all of five minutes to replace.

    Interesting thing is they tested the Verizon version of the Galaxy Note 2 @2:47 u can see the dreaded version Verizon home button.
