iPhone 5S is Sturdier Than Samsung Galaxy S5: Study
We are still not looking for smartphones that can go for a swim with us but we do want them to survive an accidental drop or two. So it will be interesting to check out the sturdiest smartphone amongst the current crop of devices.
During the process of checking, SquareTrade also measured how far the phones slide when pushed across a table on their backs. They also checked how efficiently these smartphones could withstand drops from 4 feet. The smartphone were even dipped in water for 10 seconds. To ensure consistency, the company had used Robots to carry out these tests.
Every smartphone was given a rating out of 10, with 10 being the one that has the highest risk.
However, even iPhone 5S does not match the score of the last year's winners Moto X and HTC One. Both these smartphones had scored a whooping 4.5 in these rating. [ Times of India ]
