One of Samsung’s YouTube accounts posted a rather impressive video of their flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone enduring a variety of stress tests meant to test the durability of the smart phone. Some of the tests shown in the 3 minute and 26 second video include: consecutive drop, free-fall, tumble, impact, cover glass strength, sink, temperature and humidity torture, static electricity, and the salt water sauna.
It is important to note that all the tests shown in the video seemed to showcase the Galaxy S4 passing with flying colors, but there was no real clarification that each test was passed perfectly. There could have also been several tests that were run in which the S4 failed, but were not included in the video. Samsung also mentioned several times to not replicate these tests in your home including the end message that stated (in poor english):
This video was made to demonstrate how strictly reliability is tested in Samsung facilities. DO NOT try this at home.
