A hockey puck is done of about 6 ounces of hardened rubber. It’s tough to put a hole in one, and it has to be, since after a few games anything weaker would demeanour like a “after” images during a NHTSA contrast facility. A smartphone is done of plastic, metal, glass, and several pieces of circuit house and other electronics, nothing of that is designed to be smacked regularly by sticks and ice. Unless we have a “ruggedized” indication like Samsung’s several Active phones, of course.
As partial of YouTube’s “Awesome Stuff Week,” a Unbox Therapy channel motionless to see if a Galaxy S6 Active could mount adult to a punishing pursuit of being a hockey puck stand-in. You wouldn’t dump many phones on a ice for an hour of full-contact skating, though a bulky, impact-absorbing physique of a S6 Active competence make we cruise it if we have no alternative. Check it out:
The phone manages to tarry a small practice, and even a few punishing slapshots and slams opposite a wall and a post. But after a small time in a full-contact game, a phone finally gives adult a spook and a shade shatters. (Hey Unbox Therapy, if we ever wish to run this exam again, we commission a DROID Turbo 2 and whatever the latest indication of a Caterpillar CAT phone is this year.)
Full disclosure: a video is strictly sponsored by YouTube, that we suspect creates this an ad of sorts, for them if not for Samsung. We didn’t get paid to post it here, though we did have fun examination some phones get wrecked.
