The Galaxy S23 Ultra will undoubtedly be the most popular Android flagship phone of the year, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max is sure to take the crown from Apple’s phones. Neither model is cheap, so it doesn’t hurt to be aware of what to expect during the descent. Now a famous videographer has compared the two devices, and it has also been revealed whether the iPhone’s new titanium frame makes sense in terms of durability.
PhoneBuff He does not carry out ordinary drop tests, where chance plays the biggest role, but with the help of robots, he checks with almost laboratory precision what each phone can withstand.
The first test is to drop the hip onto the backboard. Here, the Galaxy S23 Ultra clearly held up better, with only minor cracks in the corners, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s glass cover was completely shattered.
During the second test, the phones were dropped on their butts, and the glass was badly bruised in both cases, but the metal frame held up better than the iPhone. The use of titanium may have played a role in this, but we must also take into account that the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s angle is much more angular and therefore more vulnerable than its rounded opponent.
The third drop occurred when the screen was facing down, which is undoubtedly the most serious, and both phones were completely broken, although still usable. The S23 Ultra’s interface may be more vulnerable due to the curved panel, but none of its portable displays escaped.
In the fourth round, a final drop was made from much higher, the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s condition changed less here, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max was slightly more broken than before.
Overall, the Samsung phone won with 39 points, while the iPhone was not far behind, but performed worse (37 points). It can be said that neither phone should be dropped on concrete, as there is a high possibility of them breaking, and this can only be prevented with a good case and an additional glass screen protector. It’s completely secondary to how rugged a manufacturer advertises their devices, and any good-sounding Gorilla Glass protection or titanium frame could be the case. Real rugged phones are made of rubber and have a sturdy plastic casing, not a glass or metal design.
