In the laboratory SquareTrade tests the durability and waterproofness of the latest models of smartphones Apple: iPhone 7 and 7 Plus compared to Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

Special machines SquareTrade tested the resistance of the devices in the tests, falling, wetting and bending to test how the device will take situations that happen in everyday life. A video showing how the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus did in the tests you’ll see below:
showing the robustness Test SquareTrade?
1. water-Resistance the new standard market.
the iPhone 7, with degree of protection IP67, showed the water resistance when submerged a meter deep for 30 minutes. Both models Apple has stood the test of water, however this is reflected in the sound quality, as in the case with Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which boasts a degree of protection IP68.

Sorry, no. In bending tests SquareTrade’s iPhone 7 could not stand the pressure force 77 pounds (approx 170 lbs), and the iPhone 7 Plus on the strength of 81 kg (approx. 180 pounds) is the result similar to the iPhone;and the previous generation, that is, the model 6s and 6s Plus. And Samsung Galaxy Note 7, at pressure with a force of 81 pounds, not only that guy bent, but also succumbed gap.
3. the Device is destroyed while falling.
After 30 seconds in SquareTrade drop tests, the iPhone 7 has been damaged on the corners and had a cracked camera lens – just like the iPhone 6s in the same test. the iPhone 7 Plus is much better in coping with the tests “throwing” device. Note 7 proved to be less durable – he had broken all angles and much popęknany screen.
4. Pavement always wins.
All three smartphones were damaged in the first fall screen-down. In the second drop iPhone 7 has stopped working and failed to turn it back on. When the third drop in model 7 Plus the screen was badly damaged, and the smartphone has become not useless. After three dips in the corner of the iPhone 7 was popęknany screen on the edges, 7 Plus, split screen. In both types of falling iPhones much damage was visible in the lower left corner of the screen.
– the next-generation iPhone is the first among the latest smartphones that can compete with the waterproof Samsung said Steve Abernethy, SquareTrade’s Executive Chairman. – Both models Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are good in the water. However, if we are talking about resistance to drops, our tests showed no improvement. Cracked and broken screens is still the most frequent breakdowns smartphones and in this respect, as Apple and Samsung have a lot in common – adds Abernethy. We will add that Note 7 is not only losing the fight with the sidewalk, but also flashes.
