O Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra overcame the iPhone 11 Pro Max in terms of resistance. This is what a drop test conducted by the YouTube channel points to PhoneBuff this Sunday (23), which compared the durability of premium cell phones from Apple and Samsung when casting them on steel and concrete surfaces.
At first, smartphones were hurled to a height of 1 meter on a concrete surface. During this round, smartphones were launched in three different positions to attest to the firmness of the back, sides and screen.
At first, the iPhone 11 Pro Max proved to be the most fragile cell of the pair. When throwing it “on its back”, the glass broke completely, while the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra suffered minimal damage. Regarding the second test, both the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy phone did not suffer very significant impacts on the sides.
The successor to the Galaxy Note 10 proved even tougher in the fall during the third launch: the screen remained intact even when throwing it head-on on a concrete surface. The same, however, cannot be said for the more advanced phone in the iPhone 11 line, whose display glass suffered considerable damage after the shot.
The video also featured a second round of testing, this time with drops of 1.45 meters onto a steel surface. The Samsung smartphone proved to be functional even after ten pitches, and without further damage. The iPhone, in turn, had malfunctions in both the windows and the cameras, which stopped working.
Announced last August 5th, during Unpacked 2020, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is one of the first phones on the market with Gorilla Glass Victus. The new Corning glass unveiled at the end of July promises to be even stronger than its predecessor Gorilla Glass 6, to the point of withstanding drops up to 2 meters from a height.
