    We must forewarn you guys... the above video is not for the feint of heart. If you are at all squeamish about seeing a gorgeous Samsung Galaxy S4 utterly destroyed, then you may want to avert your eyes. Otherwise have a peek at the video which is a little bit informative, but mostly just "all in good fun."

    Sadly, we also have a new report which indicates more bad news. Apparently, the new SGS4 performs poorly in drop tests (like in the videos you can see here), and actually fares worse than the SGS3 in total break-ability. Here's a quote with the results of the report,

    Apparently, the SGS4 is not very resistant to being dropped, and unsurprisingly offers no resistance whatsoever to a .50 caliber rifle shot. Gee... who knew? :rolleyes:

    Sometimes I wouldn't mind doing that to my phone. I like my phone, use it often but at times I feel like I would be better off without it and just want to put one right through it.

    You can have the phone, I want the gun...it won. I have a Barrett 98B, which is a fantastic gun, but a 50 cal., even better. The problem with both guns is that you don't shoot bullets, you shoot five dollar bills. Way expensive ammo.

    I am right there with you, have a Savage 110BA and 111 LRH, both in .338 Lapua Magnum. Learning to reload so the cost goes down to $2.50 a round.

    I've never gotten into re-loading, but I'm going to have to if I want to keep shooting. $2.50 a round would be almost reasonable. I love that .338 chambering.

    Also The first catch of the Galaxy S4 wireless charging is the fact that it needs a special back plate to work. Unlike the Droid DNA and Nexus 4 which feature built-in wireless charging, the Galaxy S4 will need to use a back plate, sold separately, in order to charge without wires. That means extra money for consumers.

    Re: Topic. Won't stand up to a .50 cal? POS PHONE>

    Huh? /Confused. "Learning to reload"...
    So, what... you just buy a loaded gun, shoot it. Buy another loaded gun?
