When it comes to the smartphone wars, the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 have been matched up many different times for a variety of reasons. This includes direct spec comparisons, drop tests, HTML5 rendering comparisons and just about anything under the sun. Now comes a test that goes for a very different approach: figuring out which smartphone blends best.
For those who have never seen a Blendtec “Will it Blend” infomercial, it features the company’s founder Tom Dickson showing off just how powerful their blender line is. Dickson takes all sorts of items like marbles, broomsticks and other objects that normally don’t make their way into blenders.
Now we have the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 jumping into the blenders to see if they will blend.
Spoiler alert: Both phones do in fact blend, but the Galaxy S3 lasted a bit longer before perishing. Technically, that means the iPhone 5 won since it blended first.
Kind of pains me to see any piece of technology get senselessly destroyed like that, but I’ll admit this was still pretty fascinating to watch. What did you think of the video?
