With the Samsung Galaxy S 4 sporting a very tough Gorilla Glass 3 front, it was only a matter of time before someone decided to put the phone to the test and with phones starting to be found more commonly in the wild a Romanian reviewer has attacked his review unit with keys, knives, coins and a pen.
The end result of this test is that the screen seems to hold up extremely well to the punishment. Micro scratches aren’t visible on the screen in the video, however these are usually only visible when examined extremely closely.
The materials used in the manufacture of Samsung phones may lead to them being described as ‘Plastic’ and classed as not premium, however this same use of materials certainly lends itself to a very durable product and when a device is costing upwards of $600 this is certainly something to think about.
Is durability a major deciding factor in your phone purchase?
