I’m a sicko. I find myself getting enjoyment out of watching certain things get the crap beat out of them. To see them battered and bruised to no end, and with no remorse, is somehow satisfying. I’m talking about devices, of course. I always drool at the chance to see the stress testing process of a product, whether it be something as small as a USB cable or as expensive as a smartphone.
That’s why Samsung Tomorrow’s latest video on YouTube caught my interest. They take us deep within the process of stress testing the Galaxy S4, a necessary part of any smartphone’s (or any product period) development cycle. This is where companies figure out whether or not their devices meet their quality standards, and push the smartphones to the boundaries of pain to see how much of a beating they can take from “regular” use.
Samsung performs many tests, such as water damage, drop tests, tumbler tests, and the infamous force impact test. All of this and more can be found in the video above, though be warned that the commentary is in Korean. No worries — we’re only here for the visuals, anyway. Press play whenever you’re ready for some torturous fun.
