Not a lot of witty commentary from me on this one, it's a couple guys dropping 2 phones from 4 feet onto concrete, and…SPOILER ALERT! They both break.

I will say their disappointment is much more pronounced when the iPhone breaks as opposed to the Galaxy, so I suspect some fan boy bias may be prevalent here, but again, I really don’t know how scientific or replicable this experiment is.

I seriously doubt this was a double blind study in which an analysis of variance (ANOVA) was performed.

But hey, if you like to see expensive things dropped on the ground and watching glass break, this is probably right up your alley.
