Samsung Galaxy S23+ drop test results

As per the drop test, it was unexpected for a high-end flagship smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S23+ to fail after its first drop. Additionally, it showed that the front and rear glass panels had dents, cracks, and scratches. The Samsung Galaxy S23+’s Armor Aluminum frame received significant damage from the drop as well. However, the good news was that there were no software-related problems, and the phone still responded to touch inputs. It’s worth mentioning that most modern smartphone glass sandwiches would shatter if dropped from waist height.

According to a recent durability test, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra broke after just one drop from waist height. It was thought that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra’s curved display might be to blame for how easily it broke. The Samsung Galaxy S23+, however, shared the same fate as the Samsung S23 Ultra by failing the drop test on the first try, despite having a flat display and the most recent version of Gorilla Glass.

However, to safeguard the smartphone, users might have to add a case to their Samsung Galaxy S23+ smartphone to protect it from getting destroyed.
