SquareTrade Puts Latest Samsung Galaxy Phones through Breakability Test
The latest crop of Samsung Galaxy smartphones hit the market mere days ago, and we already have our hands on the latest SquareTrade Breakability report for those devices. Beyond the protection plans that it offers on a range of consumer electronics, SquareTrade, an Allstate company, has made a name for itself by putting the latest smartphones through a series of tests intended to simulate normal wear and tear and some accidental drops. The company ran those tests on the new Samsung Galaxy S10, the S10+, and the S10e.
The results of those tests? Not great.
As expected, and as with other all-glass devices, the latest Samsung phones were no match for face-down and face-up drops on concrete. All three S10 models were completely shattered on the first drop—though they did take the damage to different degrees.
