Gizmo Slip did a drop test of the Samsung Galaxy S III handset, not to compare its durability with other handsets, but to see how it handles accidental drops. These drop tests are quite revealing to some extent. These are not scientific in any sense but these drop tests imitate real life situations. This means that what happens in these drop tests can happen to gadget owners as well. The Galaxy S3 is one of the hottest smartphones right now and current owners and would-be owners might be interested in seeing how the device handles accidental drops. In the drop test, Gizmo Slip did three drops, with each drop done in a different angle.
Watch the video of the drop test below.
There are three drops in the test and the Galaxy S3 survived the first. The second drop is however the most telling as it cracked the phone from one corner to the other. What this means is that the Samsung Galaxy S3, a beast of a phone that it is, is also prone to serious damages when dropped. The result of this drop test should not discourage you from purchasing the phone. It only tells you that you should be extra careful or you should at least get a phone case.
