Everyone has that moment. They’re sitting there and go to pull their phone out of their pocket, only to not grab it the way they should have and have it drop out of their pocket and hit the ground. That cringe worthy moment is enough to make anyone’s heart sink as that device worth anywhere from $400 – 700 falls in slow motion to the floor. While most phones end up surviving a drop or two, sometimes they don’t.
Of course when you’re looking at buying a new phone, one of the specs that never gets mentioned is how well it will survive a drop. That’s why we have the Internet and people who do nothing more than show us what to expect should we drop that expensive new device. This time around, we have a drop test video pitting the new Galaxy S 5 against last year’s Galaxy S 4.
