Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with Gorilla Glass 5 Ultimate Scratch and Hammer Test – [Videos]

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with Gorilla Glass 5 Ultimate Scratch and Hammer Test – [Videos]

A few days back we saw the Galaxy Note 7 undergo a series of rigorous drop tests, today we take a closer look at how Samsung’s new beast of a device manages to survive these scratch tests. Be warned, this video might not be for the faint hearted so do watch it at your own risk. After looking at the video, we were quite amazed by the end result which clearly proves that even though Gorilla Glass 5 is somewhat durable against drops but when it comes to being scratched, the device is quite vulnerable to scratches. For those of you who are planning to buy this otherwise amazing device, we recommend using a good quality screen protector along with a durable back cover to keep your device protected at all times. Also check out the video below to see how the Note 7 fares when kept under a knife and...

How well does the Galaxy Note 7 survive these drop tests – [Video]

How well does the Galaxy Note 7 survive these drop tests – [Video]

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is one of the first devices that come with the all new Gorilla Glass 5 which the company claims to be four times more durable than its predecessor and the current competition. According to recent lab tests, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 survives up to 80 percent of the time when dropped face-down from 1.6 meters onto rough surfaces, far outperforming competitive glass designs. Well that claim has been put to test by our friends at XEETECHCARE who did a drop test with a brand new Galaxy Note 7. After conducting several drop tests from different heights, the front glass managed to survive every drop but much to our surprise, the glass at the back of the device got cracked in just the first drop which does raise a few eyebrows considering the fact Samsung have used the exact same glass on both sides. This proves that no matter how strong and durable the companies claim their phone display’s to be, at the end of the day one thing does stand out….Glass does Shatter!! For those of you who are planning to purchase this otherwise amazing device are advised to purchase a good quality back cover as well as a screen protector to save your device from any unfortunate mishaps as far as cracking or damaging your phone is concerned. The Galaxy Note 7 is set to arrive worldwide starting August...

One Plus 3 vs Galaxy S7 Edge – Speed and Performance test comparison [Video]

One Plus 3 vs Galaxy S7 Edge – Speed and Performance test comparison [Video]

  The One Plus 3 seems to be the talk of the town these days mainly because of two things: its sleek simplistic design and the massive 6GB RAM. Question is will it be enough to stand toe-to-toe with the Samsung S7 Edge? We’ll let you be the judge after watching the video.   Our friends at C4ETech have done a comparison with the Samsung GALAXY Edge 7 and the results look really impressive. One thing to be noted here is that the One Plus 3 by default comes with a battery optimization feature that restricts the number of apps running in the background. Due to this, the device wasn’t able to fully utilize all the power that it actually possesses. In order to fix this, XDA had come up with a small fix that enables you to fully utilize the phone’s large memory. Even though XDA have claimed that this might compromise the phone’s battery, but from what we have seen so far, that doesn’t seem to be the case. For those of you who are lucky enough to get your hands on this beast, we would like to hear what you guys think about the One Plus 3 with and without the RAM fix. Do share your thoughts with us in the comments below....

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Scratch, Burn and Bend Test – [Video]

    We’ve seen a lot of nasty videos where your favorite smartphone either has to go through some of the most rigorous methods of testing so that you can prevent the same damage happening to your own device. Well its now time to put the Sony Xperia 5 Premium Sony’s flagship device of 2015 under the ultimate scratch, burn and bend test and see how this beautiful device fairs towards the end. Some of the scenes in the video are a bit hard to watch for sensitive viewers so do watch it at your own risk. Well take a look at the video below and see for yourself 😀     Key Extracts from the Video The camera lens seems easily scratchable, likely due to it being a plastic lens. This is an unfortunate trait for a device being marketed premium, and is especially troubling from a company who prides itself on great camera performance. The glass panels on the front and rear hold up to keys and knives just fine, though. The metal sides of the device will suffer light wear and tear from keys and coins. The phone can bend, and bad. But as long as it’s not in your back pocket when you go to sit down it should be fine.   So for those of you who are planning to get their hands on Sony’s elegant device, you better keep these few things in mind. Cheers...

The ultimate Samsung GALAXY S5 Drop Test. How do you think it fared? – [Video]

The ultimate Samsung GALAXY S5 Drop Test. How do you think it fared? – [Video]

By now we all know that no matter how expensive, good looking or relatively new they actually are, smartphones these days HAVE to go through some sort of rigorous testing even after they have been released. With that said, even though the Samsung GALAXY S5 hasn’t seen the light of day as yet, (the device is officially rolling out on April 11th) the guys at Tech Smartt have already put the device to the ultimate test. Let’s see how Samsung’s flagship device of 2014 fares against a series of drop tests and also after being rolled over by an Audi Q7. For all you faint hearted people out there let this be a prior warning before you look since you may or may not exactly like what you’ll see so do watch this video at your own risk. GOOD LUCK !! 😀       After going through all the drop tests as well as being run over by an SUV, we must say that the GALAXY S5 is most certainly one of the most physically durable devices out there and even though some of you might still wonder how on earth is this even possible with it’s plastic body and all but after going through all this, it is safe to say that the device is most certainly one of the toughest nuts to crack. If you’re planning of buying a new device which not only looks elegant but at the same time is durable as well, then the S5 should be your numero uno choice. The studies also prove that the S5’s body and the screen are both much more sturdier than its predecessor the GALAXY S4 so that should be another plus point as well. So what did guys make of the rigorous pain that the device had to go through? Was it helpful in changing your (mis)perception about the plastic body? We would like to hear your thoughts as well so do share a word or two in the comments section below. Cheers...
