Alright, we’ve all seen a few videos from around the webernets pitting the iPhone 5 against the Samsung Galaxy S3 in a series of drop tests. The results were almost always the same — when it comes to droppings, it’s really tough to beat Apple’s solid construction and superior build quality. But there’s still one challenge left untested: will it blend?

As they so often do, Blendtec’s YouTube channel set to find out the answer to this question, placing both the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3 inside separate blenders where they were sliced, diced, chopped and screwed into nothing more than smartphone mulch. Which device came out on top? Well, the answer may surprise you. Take a look.

So as it turns out, Samsung’s mostly plastic construction on the S3 — a common complaint amongst Android enthusiasts — proved more resilient than the iPhone’s glass and metal. Who’da thunk it? Well, as you’ve no doubt learned from the history of the automobile, this is why we went from metal, to plastic bumpers. Aside from trying to save a few pennies, I’m beginning to understand why some Android OEM’s prefer plastic to metal. What do you think?
