Don’t be this idiot who knifed a store demo Galaxy S8 to test its durability

Modern smartphones are pretty tough. The Galaxy S8 remarkably so. But don’t test it using equipment that isn’t yours.

There’s a cottage industry of people destroying phones on camera for entertainment. From Will it blend? to drop and scratch tests, the world loves to see how far we can push the glass and metal that comprise the protective layer of our pocket computers.

But when you decide to destroy a phone, make sure it’s yours.

Just to share regarding the S8+’s screen.

Visited a local Target store where they had the S8 and S8+ on demo/display. I carry my house key (regular trapezoid/triangle type house key in the USA) on a Cold Steel Micro Recon mini keychain knife.

I ABUSED THE SCREEN AS MUCH AS I COULD.

I was absolutely flabbergasted by the amount of muscle force and strength and pressure I applied to this…

Now, normally in a post like this, we’d tell you to continue the conversation in our forums! but that’s not possible in this case, because the thread is closed — for obvious reasons. But we want to draw attention to it as an example of what not to do. Respect the property of others, even if it is owned by a big corporation.

Don’t be this idiot.
