Last week, Samsung’s Galaxy S6 edge came under pressure (literally!) when SquareTrade released a video showing how the phone succumbed when a pressure was applied. Adding salt to the wounds was SquareTrade’s claim that iPhone 6 Plus was able to withstand more pressure compared to the Galaxy S6 edge.
Now to clear the air, Samsung has published a 3-point bend test of its own that refutes the original video and explains that both the devices can withstand a pressure of 79lbf (32kgf) compared to 66lbf (32kgf) that is generated when the person presses the back pocket.
Here’s the original SquareTrade video.
