We spoke about this a little while ago — Cygnett have sent us a few different cases to try with the newly-released Samsung Galaxy S4, and while they certainly look sturdy, we’d be a bit reluctant to test them out the way they have.

As you can see in the video above, Cygnett have put their cases to the test by dropping them (eventually) from a scissor-lift that’s 3 metres up. I wouldn’t be trying this, but they did. The video is an interesting watch, but if you’re keen just to sit on the edge of your seat, you can skip ahead to the drop at the 1:50 mark.

Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S4 survives the drops, and while this could be the result of very controlled drops, it equally could be (and probably is) a testament to the quality of the cases Cygnett make. While some of the lower-end cases they make probably wouldn’t stand up to this kind of punishment, the higher-end cases — e.g. the Workmate as shown in this video — will more than likely take your daily abuse without breaking your valued hardware.
