One of the things you may want to consider when choosing between the latest smartphones is which one is more durable. The brutal drop test below pits Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 edge against the iPhone 6, and you may be surprised by the results.
After the “bendgate” saga that followed the iPhone 6 Plus generated so much interest, it was always inevitable that Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge — which are also made of metal — would be subjected to the same tests. And now even Samsung is doing its own to prove that its latest flagships aren’t as weak as others would have you believe.
Samsung announced a metal frame Android smartphone called the Galaxy Alpha earlier this month that looks very similar to the iPhone. Popular designer Martin Hajek, known for his iPhone concepts, today posted new 3D renders comparing the Galaxy Alpha with the iPhone 5s and the larger iPhone 6.
Samsung introduced its brand new Galaxy Tab S tablet at a media event in New York City this afternoon, the South Korean electronic’s makers latest attempt at taking the iPad head on. The Galaxy Tab S is thinner and lighter than previous tablets in the lineup, with a Super AMOLED display that boasts a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The tablet will be available next month in both 8.4-inch ($399) and 10.5-inch ($499) sizes.
