Video: Samsung Galaxy S10+ fought with iPhone Xs Max in drop-test and lost

Samsung Galaxy S10+ vs. iPhone Xs Max drop test. The guys from  PhoneBuff decided to test the new flagship of the Samsung Galaxy S10+ for durability in the drop test. And in order to have something to compare with, they put in his rivals the iPhone XS Max.

Who is Stronger?

Smartphones were chosen in a  pair, not only in power,  stuffing  and cost, but also in  armor”. The flagship of Samsung on both sides is protected by Gorilla Glass 6, which, according to the manufacturer, is several times stronger than the 5th generation of Gorilla Glass. The iPhone Xs Max, of course, also has a protective glass, but which one  Apple did not specify. Representatives of the company only immodestly noted that this is the most durable and durable glass.          

In the first round of the test, the iPhone Xs  Max won. After a fall from a  small height to the back panel,  there were several cracks left, but the Galaxy S10 + had entire cobwebs.

In the second round, smartphones were thrown from a  small height to the corner. Both coped with dignity:  only small scratches and abrasions appeared on the cases.

When the screen was falling down, both displays broke, but the Galaxy S10 + had more damage. He continued to work, but the subscreen fingerprint scanner was already  junk”.

And finally, in the final round, the flagships threw up to the  last breath”. The iPhone Xs Max  died  after the third fall, but the Samsung Galaxy S10 + was even in working condition after 10 drops.    

Thus, the Samsung Galaxy S10 + is not as strong as the iPhone Xs  Max, but more durable. And the onscreen scanner is better to take care of.


As a  result, PhoneBuff set the flagship Samsung 34 points out of 40 possible, and the iPhone  36. In the overall rating, it is 10 and 8 places respectively. By the way, the first three of the strongest smartphone – iPhone 8, Galaxy the S9+ and iPhone X.
