May 31, 2021
Finally we have the Galaxy S21 Ultra in the lab and the first

test

, of course, is the

drop

test

, where we compare it side by side with the iPhone 12 to get the maximum images from the

drop

test that we performed earlier, such as the last year. Note 20 Ultra, the S21 Ultra uses Gorilla Glass Victis on both the front and back of the phone, while the iPhone uses its toughest glass on the ceramic shield on the front only; However, unlike the Galaxy, the iPhone has the advantage of being flat. Edge design where the glass on each side sits flush with the stainless steel frame, making it less susceptible to damage in the event of a fall.

Both phones weigh about the same, while last year's Note 20 Ultra was significantly lighter and the only other difference worth mentioning. Here Samsung opted to use a metal camera module compared to the glass modules we normally see, meaning that while the s21's camera housing won't be as susceptible to cracking as iPhones, it will be more susceptible to scratches. , so it will be interesting. To see how these two phones compare, this video is sponsored by mine, the smart data assistant that lets you discover who has your data on the web and gives you the tools to save that data only where you want.

I discovered that a whopping 648 companies had my personal data and with a new data breach every day, that's a lot more exposure than I need. Most companies I don't even use anymore, for example I haven't used Nordstrom in years, but they still have my financial and identity information. With a single click I can submit a request for the company to automatically delete that data and boom, I just minimized my online risk. The app is still free to use for now, but it won't be for long, so check it out at the first link. below, round bottom number one in three, two, one after that bottom, at first glance, both phones look pretty good, the iPhone's glass remains completely intact and the stainless steel frame did a good job of absorbing the most some of the damage the

galaxy

sees, on the other hand.

Most of the damage was done to the metal housing of the camera, but unfortunately the S21's glass was not unscathed. This wear mark on the bottom right was not actually due to the fall. This happened to the phone sometime between the time I took it out of the box and prepared to put it in the machine. I honestly don't know how it happened but it's not the best sign in terms of scratch resistance but in terms of drop resistance the s21

ultra

has this small crack near the top, it's a bit tough. to see unless you place the phone right in direct light, but it's definitely a crack and something we'll have to keep an eye on as this test progresses, giving the iPhone the small victory in round number one, round number two , corner, drop the corner.

The drop doesn't do much to either phone with just a few scuff marks that are only really noticeable if you look for them in direct light, that hairline crack on the

galaxy

doesn't look any worse which is definitely a good sign but as You can see here that the s21

ultra

got scratched by that metal clip we use to mount the phones in the corner. Now we've been using that clip to mount phones for years and this is something I haven't seen. This happens to every other phone, because of that and the fact that we had that mysterious scratch on the phone after unboxing it, it seems that the s21 ultra, at least in this ghost black color, is not as resistant to scratches, mainly for that reason. the advantage is for the iPhone in round number two, round number three, face drop after face drop, the iPhone glass remains completely intact, while the s21 ultra unfortunately has broken glass, this is a somewhat surprising result considering last year's note 20 ultra did not.
There are no cracks on the face so this could just be due to random bad luck or it could be due to the fact that the s21 ultra is significantly heavier this year and also has a different design, it's impossible to say which one exactly it is without having several samples, but from the sample we have it's a clear win for the iPhone in bonus round number three, okay, so while the s21 ultra isn't having the best drop test so far, it's still technically fully functional, so keep going. to the bonus round where we will drop it from higher up onto a smooth steel surface where last time the iPhone passed the bonus round with flying colors without taking any further damage, so let's see if the galaxy can do the same three two one after the first bonus drop, nothing new to report, the phone is still fully functional and surprisingly that small crack on the back hasn't gotten worse, so we'll continue with three, two, one and four drops and , even though the cracks continue. spider web all over the front of the phone, the fingerprint scanner, touchscreen and cameras remain fully functional;
However, after all the repeated impact, that small crack on the back has finally gotten worse and there is major damage in that same corner, perfectly illustrating how once the phone is dropped and it gets damaged, even if it looks somewhat fine , it becomes increasingly susceptible to additional damage in subsequent drops, but the phone still works, so go seven drops in and it's more of the same, just a continuous web of cracks on the front and back of the phone maybe they look a little worse, but the phone is still fully functional and drops well, the last drop three two one and after 10 additional drops, the galaxy is still fully functional, although obviously this is a phone.
That desperately needs repair. Samsung did a good job of making it relatively impact resistant, but since the screen is cracked and the phone has clearly had enough, the test for the Galaxy ends here, but for the iPhone it moved on to the bonus. around where he dropped from that same higher height, but this time onto the rough concrete block and incredibly survived that fall. With a quick look, you'd never guess that this iPhone was dropped 14 times, making the iPhone 12 Pro Max the clear winner in this test and still the fumble-style drop test champion, we'll have a lot more Galaxy coverage soon s21 on the channel, where the s21 ultra has a real chance to take the top spots in the speed and battery test rankings away from the iPhone.
