Drop Test: iPhone 5 vs Galaxy S3

This week we pit the iPhone 5 vs the Samsung Galaxy S3. The results might surprise you!

Check out the Nissan Innovation Garage.


While Apple products have never had a strong history of durability against impacts, the iPhone 5 definitely stands above its predecessors. It did not survive the face down drop test, but it took the back and corner drop tests like a champ. Its main competitor the Galaxy S3 failed to stave off damage on even the first drop. The iPhone 5 may not have the durability that would survive harsher impacts, but it sure has made some massive strides in the right direction.
