Watch These Aussies Try And Break A Samsung Galaxy S4 By Dropping It

Aussie case manufacturer Cygnett already have some skin in the game when it comes to Samsung Galaxy S4 cases, including a new version of its WorkMate case that will reportedly survive drops of three metres from a scissor lift. Here's a video.

The S4 gets dropped from a few different heights, including a drop from a scissor lift at the height equivalent to a basketball ring. There's a bit of natter about the case itself and how it's designed at the start of the video, which is interesting if you wonder how these tough cases are made. If you just want to get to the dropping, however, skip ahead to 1:50 in the clip.

Spoiler alert: the S4 survives a few different heights, and to illustrate just what that height does to other stuff, the guys from Cygnett drop a watermelon for comparison.


    In my opinion, unless they come with a replacement guarantee for your phone when dropped from that distance - advertising like this should be banned..

    Phone manufacturers do the same thing, showing videos of things like the phone being dragged face down against concrete without getting a scratch, then without fail a week or two after its released there's hundreds of posts on their forums about getting a scratch from things like putting it in your pocket.

      Yeah I agree. People aren't ALWAYS stupid enough to go and drop their phones from a few metres, but if a case says it can protect the phone at these heights then someone is more likely to "Hey guys, watch this!" in front of their friends. And then end up with a broken phone.

      If they are advertising this then they should be carrying a guarantee, otherwise it is false advertising and is basically telling people to drop their phones from heights becauseIsaidso.

    Yeah give me the results of 100+ drops from each height on to different surfaces.

    why is it that when people get new technology, they have to drop it, throw it, blow it up or just put it places where it shouldnt be...
