Incredible durability tests for Samsung Galaxy S7 and iPhone 7

After the release of both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, things were looking very strong for Samsung. They had a phone that was miles better than the HTC 10, visibly more awesome than the Huawei P9 and still better than the iPhone 7. However, following launch, the exploding Galaxy Note 7 landed and Samsung took a bit of a hit. So is it enough to make you think twice about buying a Samsung device? In a word, no. The Galaxy S7 is by far the best phone this year. One of it's less spoken about features is the sheer resistance and durability it possesses. There have been many tests over the past few weeks and no more fascinating than the Nutella freeze test.

Another amazing durability test making the rounds is the iPhone 7 and it's encounter with molten gold. Apple has significantly improved the durability of the iPhone 7 compared to the iPhone 6s, as highlighted in many drop tests on YouTube. The iPhone 7 does well at surviving ten foot face-down and side drops without cracking the screen. In comparison, the iPhone 6s was completely shattered at drops of just five-feet. The iPhone 7’s special rear sapphire cover glass (the camera bump) was damaged but the person could still go ahead and take photos. Apple makes no claims about drop or shatter performance of course; the waterproofness of the iPhone 7 has already been shown to be of a high-standard.

So what happens when you poor pure molten gold over the iPhone 7 screen? Let's find out.
