Drop, Slide, Dunk Test: Samsung Galaxy S5 vs iPhone 5s vs HTC One M8 vs Nexus 5 [Video]

SquareTrade has posted a video drop, slide, and dunk test comparing the Samsung Galaxy S5, Apple iPhone 5s, HTC One M8, and Google Nexus 5 smartphones.

The company, which provides protection plans for electronic devices, also announced its Breakability Score for the Galaxy S5. The higher a device scores on a scale from 1-10, the higher the risk of it breaking due to an accident.

Comparing the Samsung Galaxy S5 to other highly anticipated new Android phones, the HTC One (M8) and LG Nexus 5, Samsung's latest edged out the HTC One for the victory. SquareTrade's Breakability Score testing revealed the following:

● The new Samsung Galaxy S5 takes a big step forward in durability, performing well in drop and dunk tests [scoring 6]. The Galaxy S4 has a Breakability Score of 7
● The iPhone 5s maintains a slight edge over all three Android phones, with a Breakability Score of 5.5
● The larger HTC One M8 took a step backward with a score of 6.5, performing poorly in dunk and slide tests. The previous generation HTC One is very durable, with a Breakability Score of 4.5
● The LG Nexus 5 scored a disappointing 7, failing dunk and drop tests.

"According to our research, 28% of smartphone owners, or about 44 million Americans, are considering buying the Samsung Galaxy S5," says Ty Shay, CMO of SquareTrade. "With this level of demand, we really wanted to put it to the test against other hot Android phones in the market right now. It's good to see a major player like Samsung designing phones with accidental water damage in mind. We were also surprised to see how well the new S5 did in the drop test – as previous models suffered significant damage."
