We’ve already seen the Samsung Galaxy S6 undergo a professional bend test after which Samsung responded with an official drop test, but these pale in comparison to the latest test, which runs over the Galaxy S6 with a Tesla car.
Following the bend test from earlier this week, Samsung has now released a drop test video showing the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge withstanding some massive impacts.
Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 Edge looks stunning, but many have questioned how well the double-edged device can handle drops and bumps. A “slam test” video making the rounds suggests the S6 Edge is a lot stronger than it looks.

With a new generation of curved designs upon us, there’s hope that smartphone screens could become more resilient to accidents. In theory, the curvature of the phone should shrink the area that is exposed to impacts, making face drops a little less dangerous. But that’s the theory. How about the practice?
Going for just $350, the Nexus 5 is definitely worth its price tag, and then some, but some have wondered if its build quality is up to snuff. For sure, the Nexus 5 is more durable than its glass-backed predecessor, but just how durable?
