They are the two best selling smart phones on the planet. With over 40 million handsets between them in circulation it only stands to reason that some are going to be dropped or broken.
In order to see which would fare better if everyone’s nightmare happens and you drop your handset, leave it on your car or heaven forbid let your children near it, independent warranty provider, SquareTrade have completed a drop test.
The droptest is based on the following statistics on accidental damage:
1 in 4 smartphones owned by parents have been accidentally damaged by their kids
1 in 2 phones fail due to drops and spills
1 in 15 people have damaged their phones in and around a car.

The demonstration clearly shows that the iPhone 4S is ahead of the Galaxy SIII as far as sturdiness goes and it looks like accidental damage insurance is a must!!!
