Apple launched their new flagship smartphone, and it is time for new drop tests. Android Authority had already done a Samsung Galaxy Note 7, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus drop test. Apple iPhone 7 looks almost similar to the iPhone 6s in terms of design, but what about build quality? These drop tests will answer that.
There were three drops, first on its back, second of the bottom-side and last facing the front/screen. Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus manages to survive all the three tests. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 already has an exploding battery, and is passed most tests, but the final drop resulted cracks in the screen. The glass on Galaxy Note 7 has Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection, which is less scratch resistant than the 4th generation, but more shatter resistant.
Galaxy Note 7 landed on its display’s curvy edge, and that cracked the screen. This test doesn’t mean the iPhone 7 will be always safe when you drop it, or the Galaxy Note 7 will easily shatter its screen. Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus drop test may be a pass, but it nay not be the case for all users. May be the curved screen on the Galaxy Note 7 is its weak point, other than the battery.
