Rejecting the claims made by an electronics insurer that the latest Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones are as bendable as the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, the South Korean mobile giant has published a video on YouTube that shows the two phones undergoing the tough pressure test.
Last week Square Trade claimed that it had put the said Samsung handsets and the HTC One M9 through some bending tests and found that both Apple and Samsung's devices warped when put under 110 pound-force.

While the iPhone bent just a little, the screen of the Samsung phone cracked.The video posted on YouTube by Samsung Tomorrow features a 3-point bend test for the phones in question.
The devices were put through 80 pounds of force-enough to break five pencils at once- which is considered an extreme condition more than most devices encounter in everyday use.

It begins with a disclaimer stating that the video has not been produced to satisfy the 'sadistic desires' by attempting to destroy phones, but to establish that Samsung devices are designed and tested to endure physical stress even in extreme situations.
Last year Apple faced a lot of heat because of the iPhone 6 Plus bend-gate and companies like Samsung had mocked the weakness of the phone by using their own devices to test durability.
