What happens when the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is slammed to the ground like a firecracker? [VIDEO]

Samsung Galaxy S6 Gorilla Glass 4

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge’s front and rear are slathered in glass, and many folks reveled in fear of what could happen should the unfortunate accident occur. Would it shatter into pieces made to look like the grotesque work of demon-like entities?

Well, one brave (or rich, or crazy) person decided to find out for himself. A video uploaded to Chinese video sharing site Youku shows someone slamming their Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge onto cold, hard pavement as if it were a contact firecracker the likes of which you’ve probably played around with as a kid.

The result? It actually came out completely unscathed. Not a single crack is to be had with all that glass, likely a testament to the super strong Gorilla Glass 4 being used. That doesn’t mean the Samsung Galaxy S6 is indestructible — no smartphone is — but if you were wondering if the occasional accidental drop would instantly result in irreversible damage then those fears should now effectively be put to rest.

Of course, that doesn’t give you cause to be careless once you finally receive your $700+ piece of circuitry so we’d still recommend slapping a case on and, you know, not being clumsy. Check the video out above.
