Watch the Galaxy S8+ and iPhone 7 Plus go through some awful drops together

How durable are the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+? Well, as you can imagine, with their glass structure, they’re probably not very durable. But, you might actually be surprised, as EverythingApplePro put them both through the ringer in a new drop test video.

EverythingApplePro is pitting the Galaxy S8+ and iPhone 7 against each other in this drop test. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S8+’s glass just doesn’t hold up — it shatters into thousands of pieces; however, it’s quite surprising just how well the front — the display side — held up before cracking.

Check it out for yourself below.

There’s still some stellar build quality here, though. Even though there’s cracks all over the place, the phone was still fully functional. That’s some serious build quality. But, as you can imagine, if that were to ever happen to you in real life, that’s going to be one expensive repair.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are officially launching in the US on April 21.
