In Samsung’s test they drop both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge from chest height on the top and bottom. They perform this test repeatedly, but neither one shows any sign of cracks, chips, or dents. Samsung claims that this is due to the Gorilla Glass 4, which is used on the face and back. Their test is performed in a closed environment under perfect conditions. It’s still very possible to crack any phone if it lands in the worst possible way.
We’ll likely hear a lot more about the reliability of these devices once more people get them. Right now Samsung is doing their part to reassure everyone that the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are just as solid as previous Galaxy devices. Are you convinced?
