Image Cache: Before a phone hits the market, its not just manufacturers that put the devices through rigorous testing. Telstra have revealed a behind-the-scenes look at what has been going on in preparation for the Samsung S7 launch, and it's pretty interesting.
Protocol performance, antenna and receiver sensitivity, user experience and voice quality are among the 3,360 tests performed on each phone, which take a team 1,068 hours to perform.
This included 68 hours of driving handsets around the country to test service on Telstra's network.
During testing 4,500 voice calls are made, 530 GB of data is transferred on the road and a further 1.1TB in the labs, pictured below.
