Can the Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 survive boiling water?

Smartphone bend tests? Booooring. It's pretty common to see crazy YouTubers perform cringe-worthy drop tests, blend tests and even gun tests on new smartphones, but a boiling water test? On the iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6, two phones that aren't even water-resistant or waterproof?

Now, they're just grasping at straws. We're not sure what possessed YouTube user "TechRax" to do a "boiling hot water test" on the two best smartphones out there. Whatever the reason is, the results are in: It took 10 seconds for the iPhone 6's screen to turn black and destroy itself.

The Galaxy S6, however, powered through a little over a minute before it started to overheat and shut down apps. At the the midway point, the YouTuber then takes a cooking utensil and smacks the phones around. Um, OK... And as if cooking his smartphones wasn't ridiculous enough, the YouTuber then rinses them off in a "cold water bath."

The Galaxy S6 doesn't turn on, but the iPhone 6 somehow manages to display its Apple logo, although it wasn't able to boot-up. The lesson here? Don't boil your smartphones. Stick to eggs. Also, don't try this at home.

It's a waste of two great smartphones.

KoenBeste trapple, Heb sinds kort een one plus 3t met android versie 7. Als ik in de standby app een datum wil selecteren dan sluit de app zich. Daarna moet je alles weer invoeren oftewel de app is niet te gebruiken. Groetjes, Koen Schimmel11 Feb 2017 - 11:17
