    The video is a bit long and somewhat dull, yet could be somewhat informative.

    I thought both phones came thru well under the circumstances..but we all know it don't take but a small drop and you can crack screen

    After recently getting a insurance bump to the S6, naked phones and Samsung don't work together anymore. They're Beautiful phones, but I've handled ice cubes with more grip.

    Moral of the story, don't drop your phone! However, as a S7 Black owner that badly wanted the silver, this video hurt me.

    Just got my S7E on Friday and I am encourage by this video. I am typically extremely persnickety about my devices and odds are will never encounter a drops like any of these ... But seeing what the S7E can endure makes me feel better about going caseless.

    I will say its impressive but we all have seen screens crack on that "just right" drop. Its nice to see they become more durable but don't like the back being of a glass type. No matter what I will always use a case when out and about. When home she'll go naked. I just got the S7 and also have the S6 edge+ and both phones I like.
