I’m not sure about you, but I love seeing some of the most sought after, well-crafted and technologically-advanced gadgets be torched, chopped and dropped – all in the name of pure entertainment. While thousands – if not millions – of consumers save up their pennies for months in order to afford their next big tech purchase, there’s always a company or organization out there simply tarnishing them and filming the result for our viewing pleasure.
The more popular the device, the better, and in the smartphone arena, they don’t come much bigger than the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S III. We’ve seen them dropped from every angle and height in many a test so far, producing outcomes which would make any true geek shudder to the core, and the very latest test of endurance, the two market-leaders have been dropped into a blender.
While drop and water tests do offer a degree of value – no less because most of us have written off a device by dropping it into liquid or smashing it up erroneously – it’s rather unlikely anybody would accidentally blend their iPhone 5 or Galaxy S III. Its lack of an educational aspect doesn’t stop the intrigue – we still want to watch it, don’t we? Well, without further ado, here’s the blender test, as carried out by BlendTec:
BlendTec is among the market leaders in, well, blend tech, and have made the blending of finely-crafted gadgets something of an institution. Every so often, some of the latest and greatest geek gadgets are put through their paces in the most brutal of manners, and as the video demonstrates, neither Apple or Samsung’s prized flagship devices had an answer.
The Samsung, however, was the clear winner in this particular test, and defiantly maintained its shape as the iPhone 5 appeared almost liquefied.
Kudos to BlendTec for a particularly entertaining video. If the blending itself doesn’t manage to draw a chuckle from you, perhaps the “it smells like Jelly Beans” quip from the smoldering remains of the Galaxy S III will induce a little laughter.
So, as it says in the video – don’t try this at home; although if you do, please, please film it!
