The folks from GizmoSlip started their drop test with a four-foot drop with the back case of the Galaxy S3 facing the cement floor, while recording.
"Looks like the device is completely okay," until it showed the glass of the camera "actually cracked."
Despite the crack, the camera functions normally.
When dropped on the side, also from four-feet, the screen cracked "really badly."
The test continued though, dropping the device at four-feet with the screen facing the ground. The device fell onto its side, although it appears the touchscreen display is still working.
Their verdict, the Galaxy S3 "did not survive."
The smartphone also didn't survive the explosion, which you can see below at 6:07.
Adianisen performed his own test from his kitchen.
Despite dropping face down and landing face up, the device survived with no visible scratches.
Alex Iser of Phone Doctors performed his drop test while comparing it to the iPhone 5.
The Samsung device, while recording, did not break during the first 45-inch drop. However, during the second 45-inch drop, which was thrown by Iser's son, broke the device. The back case and battery detached.
When making the comparison, Iser gave the iPhone 5 the victory.
