A new drop test conducted by Smartprix Bytes has found that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is more durable than the iPhone 15 Pro Max. The test involved dropping both phones from a waist-level height onto a concrete surface four times, once on each face and once on each corner.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra fared better in the drop test overall, suffering only minor cosmetic damage to the back glass. The iPhone 15 Pro Max, on the other hand, suffered more significant damage, with the back glass shattering in one corner.
Here is a more detailed breakdown of the drop test results:
- Back-facing drop: The Galaxy S23 Ultra suffered minor cosmetic damage to the back glass, with a small scratch appearing in one corner. The iPhone 15 Pro Max’s back glass shattered in one corner.
- Corner drop: Both phones suffered catastrophic damage on one of their corners. The Galaxy S23 Ultra’s aluminum frame remained undamaged, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s titanium frame showed more damage.
- Screen-facing drop: Both phones survived the screen-facing drop, but the Galaxy S23 Ultra suffered a small crack in the screen. The iPhone 15 Pro Max’s screen remained intact.
Based on the results of the drop test, Smartprix Bytes concluded that the Galaxy S23 Ultra is the more durable phone. The Samsung phone’s back glass and aluminum frame appear to be more resistant to damage than the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s back glass and titanium frame.
It is important to note that this is just one drop test, and more tests would need to be conducted to confirm the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s durability advantage over the iPhone 15 Pro Max. However, the results of this test are promising for Samsung fans who are looking for a durable flagship phone.
It is also worth noting that both phones are still under development, so it is possible that Apple could make changes to the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s design or materials to improve its durability. However, based on the current results of this drop test, the Galaxy S23 Ultra appears to be the more durable phone.
