Recently, a YouTube channel called TechRax had conducted an expensive drop test. The iPhone 11 Pro Max, Samsung Galaxy Fold and the "legendary" Nokia 3310 were brought to the 20th floor of the spiral staircase and dropped down to see which is the most durable phone.
When he dropped the iPhone 11 Pro Max without a protective case, both the glass on the back and front were heavily damaged. In addition, a part of the screen also failed, but the phone still worked normally.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Fold almost stopped working, the internal screen was partly broken with the right side barely working, but the front display was still in a decent condition. Moreover, the back of the device was not as bad as the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The YouTuber then continued to drop both phones a second time. This time, the iPhone stopped working with a green display whereas Galaxy Fold was completely broken with its frame being broken after the collision. Even though both phones were both destroyed, the iPhone 11 Pro Max seemed to be in a slightly better condition with its screen still showing some signs of life.
Most surprisingly, the device that is worshiped by on the internet for being super durable, didn’t withstand the first drop test. It was split into multiple components, with a cracked rear cover and a broken screen.
Overall, Apple’s latest flagship iPhone 11 Pro Max appears to be the most durable one of the three. With a phone cover, you shouldn’t worry much about the phone being broken after several drops. However, you might need to be extra careful if you own a Galaxy Fold because there is currently no phone cover available for the device. As for the Nokia 3310, maybe the phone did not break, but it disassembled itself just to protect the stair, according to a comment by JackSprattie.
