Irrespective of the segment they are placed in, Samsung’s devices are always criticized for lacking that premium feel because of the extensive use of plastics and it’s no different on the upcoming Galaxy S 4 either. That said, Samsung says there is nothing ‘cheap’ about the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen on the Galaxy S 4 and a YouTube user has put that claim to test with an extensive scratch test.
YouTube user Szabolcs Ignacz shared a video where he scratches the face of the phone with household items like pen, knife, coins and keys. Szabolcs puts in a lot of effort in trying to scratch the display, but the Galaxy S 4 emerges absolutely unharmed. Prospective buyers can thus rest assured that the Galaxy S 4’s display is indeed of premium quality and is well protected by the Gorilla Glass 3. You can watch the full video of the test below.
To recap on the Galaxy S 4’s specifications, the flagship phone features a 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, a 13-megapixel rear and a 2-megapixel front camera and a brand new version of TouchWiz that comes with numerous software add-ons. The Indian version of the Galaxy S 4 is expected to feature Samsung’s own Exynos 5 octa-core processor.
Samsung India has already started sending out invites for the Galaxy S 4 launch in India for April 26 and we will be at ground zero covering the launch. In the meanwhile, you can check out our hands-on and first impressions of the Galaxy S 4 here.
