People just love watching brand new devices clatter and bang, and smash, when dropped onto the floor in drop tests and when it comes to the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3, these two superb devices were tested out to see which has the toughest coconut.

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5: drop test

The video shows that neither of the handsets can withstand being dropped, as they both break. However many people will be more dismayed when the iPhone 5 shatters, than they will when the Samsung Galaxy S3 becomes a victim to the same fate.

For those who like nothing better than seeing two top of the range devices dropped the floor, you may wish to check out the drop test video between the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3 at the bottom. The devices are dropped onto their backs, fronts and sides from varying heights. The iPhone 5 survived the four foot drop on the back very well, while the camera lens cracked on the Samsung Galaxy S3. On the corners the iPhone 5 also came out well, while the corners of the Samsung Galaxy S3 cracked and the display suffered damage.

When it came to dropping the devices onto their screens you will have to watch the video to see how both devices came out of it, or not.
