Last week, SquareTrade posted a video demonstration testing out the durability of the Samsung Galaxy S6. This has obviously irked Samsung as the Korean manufacturer has issued a video rebuttal to last week’s test, while claiming that it was not done under the right circumstances.
According to SquareTrade, the test was not conducted under regular situations which an every day user would encounter. Further clarifying its point, Samsung said – “Our internal test results indicate that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are not bendable even under 79lbf, which is equivalent to putting pressure to snap a bundle of five pencils at once.”
The company also asked SquareTrade to make another video with the screen of the smartphone facing down, which will apparently have a different impact on the durability test. It will be interesting to see if SquareTrade will give-in to Samsung’s request and conduct yet another test with the aforementioned conditions.
In any case, we have to mention that the Galaxy S6 is in no way a weak phone. So these tests don’t really make a difference as the smartphone is pretty capable of sustaining significant pressure without bending.
