One of the main reasons why I decided I would prefer the Galaxy S6 over the curvy Galaxy S6 Edge is that I was sure I would end up dropping the latter on its side and shattering its display.

But based on the video clip below, the device seems insanely tough and near impossible to break under everyday circumstances.

No, this isn’t another one of those cringeworthy drop tests. Well, it kind of is, but it’s much more exciting than the rest. It’s more of a slam test, and you’ll almost certainly be blown away by it. Just excuse the quality.


Pretty incredible, isn’t it? You might think those curves make the S6 Edge display more fragile, but if anything, it seems tougher than other smartphone displays. Even after being thrown to the ground with force several times, it remains in one piece and functions just fine.

I don’t know about you, but I’m super impressed. I wasn’t too interested in the S6 Edge before now because I was concerned about its durability, but after seeing this and reading the early reviews, it’s really starting to win me over.
