    You knew it had to happen... the HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5 are the hot new phones on (or about to hit) the market. They've already been subjected to dissection from the folks at iFixit. They've already been subjected to torture tests as well. The only thing left is the drop tests! That's exactly what you will find above: the HTC One M8, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and an iPhone 5S (thrown in for good measure)... all dropped from various heights.

    We won't spoil the surprise of which one fairs better, so watch the video!

    I'm not sure why I keep watching these. The reality of the situation is that anytime the glass hits flat on concrete you should expect some damage. Even though I'm well aware of this fact, I have to watch these videos!!

    Holy crap, no wonder the S5 is so wide, look at the side bezel on that thing! WTF?

    Good test

    Interesting test and seems about as fair as a human can be.
