Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4S: S3 Fast But iPhone 4S Durable

By  | 

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is without a doubt the most powerful smartphone on the market. With a speedy processor, awesome display and features that haven’t been seen on other smartphones to date, we can’t help but compare it to the iPhone 4S which still holds one of the biggest sales records in the US market.

While it is unfair to compare both device’s hardware given that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is newer and more up to the task of taking on the iPhone 5, we can compare its durability.

Droid Life has just posted a video of the Samsung Galaxy S3 being subjected to the “drop test”, up against the Apple iPhone 4S which is often depicted as its competition by reviewers and bloggers worldwide. In the video, the Gorilla Glass 2 featured in the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S3 does not seem to live up to the hype, after cracking more easily than the iPhone 4S.

As Droid Life say; if you do end up buying the otherwise impressive device, with its high spec processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, ensure you keep it in a protective casing. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is now available through 5 major US carriers while the iPhone 4S was recently discounted, possibly due to the upcoming launch of the iPhone 5.
