Samsung Galaxy S10 Lineup Fails Drop Test, Galaxy S10e Stopped Working After First Drop

Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup failed in the recent drop test of SquareTrade, even Galaxy S10e became unusable after a drop.

Samsung’s latest flagships, the Galaxy S10 lineup recently went through a drop test and all three smartphones could not survive it. The handsets in the Galaxy S10 series shattered their front and rear glass panels. And after the first drop, the Samsung Galaxy S10e was deemed unusable. SquareTrade carried out this test and compared the Galaxy S10 series with the iPhone X series to show the users how the latest flagships from Samsung stand up against its rivals and each other. Previously, JerryRigEverything, a YouTuber, had carried out scratch and bend test on the Galaxy S10 devices, and three smartphones seemed to pass the test, but finally, they failed the drop test.

SquareTrade performed the drop test all Samsung S10 variants including the Galaxy S10e, the Galaxy S10+, and the Galaxy S10. It dropped three smartphones from a height of 6 feet and found out that all of them suffered massive glass damage. According to SquareTrade, three Galaxy S10 models would break if they were thrown on concrete for the first time. iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9 models also give similar results. Out of three variants of the Galaxy S10 lineup, the Galaxy S10e seemed to have the least durability. After the drop test, its display became unusable and malfunctioned. The camera and the flash of this device also were unusable after the drop.

Out of three smartphones, the Galaxy S10 handled the drop the best. Although it also broke at the rear and front panels after the back-side and front-side drop, it still worked. Besides, the Galaxy S10+ still worked after its front and rear glass panels were shattered, but its glass body seemed loose after the drop test.

Three smartphones cracked after the drop tests like the Samsung Galaxy S9 series, and the iPhone X series during the tests of SquareTrade. The Galaxy S10e stopped working after the drop like the iPhone X. Meanwhile, according to SquareTrade, the Samsung Galaxy S10 performed better its rival, the iPhone XS Max, but it did not detail the reasons.

Here is the drop test video clip of SquareTrade:

In recent testing of JerryRigEverything, the YouTuber checked the Galaxy S10 in a flame and bend test which the device passed it with ease. Even the ultrasonic on-screen fingerprint scanner worked fine even when the screen above it was heavily damaged.
