Ever wondered how the Galaxy S III would fare in a scratch test? Well thanks to Android Caotic and a dude named Paul from Samsung Italy, we now have a video showing the device being abused (sort of). The video is supposed to be a demonstration of a scratch test but as you will see the guy uses the round metal plug from a European phone charger. While I wouldn’t try this test with any of my devices, when I think of a scratch test I think of some dude using a key to repeatedly scratch a device’s screen. Either way, this is decent proof that the Gorilla Glass 2 screen on the GSIII can handle some unwanted abuse. Oh, and they also show how the polycarbonate back plate can be nearly bent in half repeatedly without any damage. I imagine the earlier rumored ceramic coating would’t have fared so well. The device may be plastic but at least you know it won’t shatter like an iPhone! Jump past the break to check out the video.
