Samsung’s Galaxy S III Takes a Beating in Stress Test Versus iPhone 4S

We here at AllThingsD love to bring you hard-hitting news.

Of course, by hard-hitting news, we mean videos of the latest phones hitting the ground. Hard.

That’s why we love that the folks at electronics insurer SquareTrade rush out to destroy the latest devices.

In their newest video, they compare the Samsung Galaxy S III with the iPhone 4S in three tests. In addition to the standard drop test, they also have two kids throw the phones in the air and let the devices fall from the top of a car as it is driven away.

The results are hardly scientific, but lots of fun.
