Another day, another durability test. This time it’s a scratch test that pits the top smartphones right now, the Samsung Galaxy S III and the iPhone 4S. This scratch test is far from scientific, and by now we all know that these tests are done more as marketing gimmicks than real durability tests. Still, there’s something to be learned from these kinds of tests. If anything, it shows us some truth to the results of these tests.
The scratch test is called a “drag race scratch test” by the person himself who did it. The test involves dragging the Galaxy S III and the iPhone 4S through a moving car. The thought of it already makes me cringe. Imagine two expensive phones being dragged and getting heavily scratched. The test shows which phone has the more durable screen. You might already know the result without watching the video but watch it nonetheless.
