iPhone 12 Pro Max beats Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra in a heavy drop test


A few days ago, the worldwide sales of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series started. It’s time to destroy one of the top-end Galaxy S21 Ultra copies priced at $1,199, isn’t it? The YouTube channel EverythingApplePro has conducted a joint drop test of the cutting-edge Android smartphone of 2021 along with the current iPhone 12 Pro Max. The tests were carried out in several stages, and the difference manifested itself only in the latter. However, the first drawbacks of the assembly of the “Koreans” happened a little earlier, when, after falling on the back, the optics of a telephoto camera for 3x optical zoom took off.

Well, in the end, Apple still gets the victory “on points”, since its Ceramic Shield, which protects the display, turned out to be stronger than Gorilla Glass Victus. Despite the fact that the back of the iPhone 12 Pro Max has crashed, the display is still the main part of the smartphone, that is, damage to the front part is more significant. Watch the entire test on the video. And remember that a smartphone must be handled with care anyway!

Here is a reminder of the specifications of both smartphones.
