Samsung tortures Galaxy S4, comes off unscathed

The Galaxy S4 may feel flimsy and cheap, but Samsung wasn’t happy with that image, so instead of a war of words it decided to prove that the Galaxy S4 is just as tough as the rest of them.

Samsung put the device through several stress tests including covering it in dust, dropping it in different ways, taking it for a swim, punching it, sending an electrical pulse through the controls and even putting it in the oven.

Unsurprisingly, given it was a video by Samsung themselves, the device survived each and every test. Although if you’re still worried about breaking your S4, then at least Samsung has given you a little peace of mind when it comes to the device’s durability.
