Samsung is playing down any bad press about its latest flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. The Korean tech giant is seen testing the two flagships for their strength and endurance to extreme force in a video.
The new video came after SquareTrade's bend test conducted last week that showed the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are indeed bendable and breakable, of course with enormous pressure. In Samsung's defense, the destructive force applied on its Galaxy smartphones is extremely rare under normal circumstances.
Samsung showed off the strength and durability of its Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones in a short video and backed it up with some numbers. According to the company, the usual force applied on a device in the back pocket while a person is sitting is 66lbf. Samsung showed that the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge can withstand force a little over 80lbf when put under 3-point bend test.
In comparison, the Korean tech giant showed it takes a little over 79lbf to break five 2B pencils at once. When the same amount of force is applied on Samsung flagships, the phones returned to their original shape after bending at first. The 3-point bend test was applied on both phones and on both sides. Samsung also flushed down SquareTrade's test as it was only tested on Galaxy S6 Edge's front side.
This should clearly convince Samsung fans that the handsets are worth the upgrade. After all, Samsung is treating Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge as the most-advanced handsets in its lineup.
Apple may have treated the iPhone 6 bend-gate claims with silence but Samsung isn't the one to go down without a fight. The latest response to SquareTrade's video also shows to what extent Samsung is willing to go just to protect its flagships from false claims.
