Latest Samsung Galaxy Phones Perform “Marginally” Better in SquareTrade Breakability Test
In what’s become one of our favorite pastimes, the latest SquareTrade Breakability Test results are in, which means we get to watch premium, high-priced phones get tossed around like ragdolls and shatter into pieces.
The latest victims are the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, which hit the market with a reported “20 percent thicker glass and a stronger AL 7003 middle frame,” according to SquareTrade. But, at the end of the day these are glass phones that go edge-to-edge with their displays, which really limits how strong they truly are. Plus, let’s not forget, we’re dealing with clumsy everyday consumers here. The smartphone accessories market is a ridiculously successful one simply because we’re not capable of keeping our nice things in nice condition without that added layer of protection.
