Video: Samsung Tests Durability of the GS3 Using Large Mechanical Butt

Authored by: Steven Blum — Nov 26, 2012

 

What does Samsung's Galaxy S3 have in common with Denzel Washington? They're both UNBREAKABLE. Or, at least that's what Samsung would like you to believe. In a long, detailed and thoroughly entertaining stress-test video uploaded today, the Korean smartphone manufacturer shows off just how bend-able, robot-ass-uncrushable the Galaxy S3 is.

As it turns out, Samsung has an entire laboratory dedicated to putting the Galaxy S3 through a number of day-to-day tests, including:

  1. Pressure tests –  If, by chance, your pet rooster gets ahold of your phone and pecks it to death for 1,000 years, it STILL won't break.
  2. Butt tests – No matter how big, round, or juicy the butt, your phone will certainly survive.
  3. Bend test – For all of those moments when you're so mad at your phone that you just want to twist it like a piece of Laffy Taffy. 
  4. Washing machine test – Just in case you leave your phone in the wash.
  5. Scratch test – Pretty self-explanatory.
  6. Rain test – Seems to be geared more towards other phone models that are actually water-resistant.

Oh, and if you just want to laugh, skip to 1:25 for the "butt test." Glad Samsung is spending their R&D on the things that really matter: pressing large mechanical butts against their top-selling phone.
