Note 4 vs Rear End of a 100 Kg Man

October 9, 2014

The timing of this demonstration video couldn’t have been better for Samsung and Note 4, in the wake of #BendGate and reports of the iPhone 6 Plus bending easily in not-so-extreme circumstances… Like being sat on while in the rear pocket.

Samsung quickly pounced on the wounded Apple, showing some of the tests they put their phones through to insure structural resilience… But our favorite must be “The Gluteus Maximus”, and it pits the phone against the “Gluteus Maximus” of a 100 Kg man… Time and time again!
