The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are not only tough nuts to crack, but they can also be used to crack tough nuts—literally!
New YouTube videos show that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge can go on double duty as a (kind of) nutcracker because they are able to crack walnuts—at least in this instance—without scratching their screens.
The latest torture test now shows people trying to crack open walnuts using the latest Samsung smartphones and, much like in torture tests of the past, the Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 emerge undamaged and survive with flying colors.
At the time of the launch, Samsung revealed that its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge were both sturdy smartphones, asserting that they "will not bend" like the iPhone 6 Plus, which found itself at the very center of the #bendgate controversy.
When SquareTrade ran its own durability test of Samsung's flagship devices and reported negative results, Samsung did "damage" control by countering the results. The electronics company came out with its own official bend test showing just how strong these precious devices were.
Samsung claims that, in constructing these flagships, the company deployed metal, which is stronger than the one used by rivals. The frame design of these smartphones is also better. Moreover, the Gorilla Glass 4 is effective in protecting the smartphones' screens, to which the torture test YouTube videos bear a testament.
The first YouTube video shows an individual attempting to crack open walnuts with the two Samsung smartphones. The walnut is placed on the screen then smashed. The walnuts are cracked one after the other with not even a scratch on the smartphone. Even after the test, the device also switches on as if nothing unusual has happened.
The second YouTube video shows an individual using the edge of the smartphone to crack open the walnuts. The smartphone does the task with ease. The video shows that no scratches or visible dents are made to the metal frame of the flagship.
