Watch the Galaxy S6 Edge get shot with a Desert Eagle and live – JK, it gets blown to bits [VIDEO]


Samsung Galaxy S6 Desert Eagle Test

We know. Those smartphone drop test/destroying videos on YouTube are little more than a desperate attempt at grabbing views. Other than satisfying our own sick pleasures, they don’t really prove anything. But then again, they don’t always have to.

The latest destruction video comes to us from Unbox Therapy whom you may remember from all those “iPhone 6 bend test” videos. Shot on a Phantom Flex4K ultra HD video camera, he pits the Samsung Galaxy S6 against the tried and true Desert Eagle. The result? Well, you’re just going to have to watch the video. It’s wicked good, slow motion fun. Have a look.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. I swear.. Dbrands puts their skins on almost every device that’s reviewed now a days…

    1. Yeah, their social media department is doing a great job. Lol

    2. DBrand provides review units to youtubers who aren’t ‘big’ enough to get one from Samsung. Complete with skin. Linus Tech Tips for example admits this.

  2. I want one of those carbon fibre skins!

    EDIT: Nevermind. It doesn’t look that great on the M8.

    1. Still think I’m going for the Saygus V2. Comes with carbon fiber back.

      1. The Saygus almost sounds too good to be true.

        1. Lol. THAT is exactly my fear. (I’ve already prepaid for one.)

          1. Where is the Saygus V2 available to buy/pre-order. It does look very good, I’m wondering how good software support would be a few months after it’s actually released.

          2. One can order direct from the Saygus website, however, their twitter feed recently announced “No more purchases till secret is revealed…few weeks wait for reveal of exciting Saygus move!” I think they want to get the first batch of preorders delivered before they open up for regular orders. But that is MY opinion, not anything from the company.

          3. Very intriguing. Two things I’d need answering before I’d consider buying the Saygus…how quick will Saygus make available Android OS updates and for how long. Waiting months for each OS update or ditching support before the hardware is no longer able to handle the latest OS would be really off putting.

          4. Good questions. They’ve announced 5.1 will be available in June so that’s a good sign. The phone comes rooted and unlocked so one can always install a ROM or switch carriers.

          5. It’s not a bad sign but I wouldn’t say it was good. The phone is just about to be released so their primary intention behind announcing 5.1 could be to increase appeal for their as yet unreleased phone. I think a true test of great support is how they deal with the phone when it is over a year old and still has hardware capable of running the latest OS. Too many manufacturers really slow down support for phones as soon as they are a few months old (i.e. when sales of their phone start to slow down) and when they release the next generation of the phone, it’s like they ditch support altogether. It’s as if they thinking those who want the latest OS will be forced to upgrade to the newer gen phone. However, if they don’t support the phone at a reasonable level then they’re doing nothing but burning those potential loyal customers. And as they say, once burnt, twice shy.

  3. Because blowing up a perfectly good device is a great idea, right?

  4. “Those smartphone drop test/destroying videos on YouTube are little more than a desperate attempt at grabbing views”

    *Makes an article about one of those videos*….

    1. Yeah, but I bet they get the views – especially with sites like this promoting this rubbish. I’ve watched my share of destruction videos but the waste just really offends me. Even destroying an iPhone for views offends me.

  5. I’m betting the LG G4 is more bulletproof. Although I doubt if it could stand a good arrow strike.

  6. “……And the fact that you’ve got “Replica” written down the side of your guns… And the fact that I’ve got “Desert Eagle point five O”…Written down the side of mine….”

  7. I love guns. More than phones. Lock N Load….

  8. How is the grip after you apply on of these to an s6?

    I love the glass but it tends to slide around alot.

  9. If it was an Iphone, it would have survived.

  10. Hmm… I recall an HTC device saving someone’s life when a bullet shot at a person. Now I’m not trying say anything about build quality, but…

    1. I’ve got bigger problems if someone is aiming a Desert Eagle at me.

    2. False, that was a Galaxy Note.

  11. My GS4 has proven quite vulnerable to tile floors. Even with a case and ballistic glass screen protector. Between that and the woeful battery life with the last few Android OS updates to it, I’m likely moving on to LG or even back to a Moto or Nexus-family device.
