Ever accidentally dropped your phone and then stared in wonder as still worked unquestioningly? Worried about whether or not the latest smartphones are durable enough to stand some everyday abuse?

Well fear not, because the insane people over at SquareTrade decided to see which phone could withstand more abuse; the Samsung Galaxy SIII or the iPhone 4S. They tested each phone three times by dropping it from about ear height, then handing them over to two kids to destroy, and then finally having the phones slide of from a moving car. Because apparently the last two scenarios affect a large percentage of mobile phone owners.

So sit back and watch some perfectly good phones being destroyed – all in the name of science of course.
