With fans eagerly waiting to buy the all-new Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, some tests must be performed to check its physical strength. Does anyone here not enjoy a nice drop test? It’s damage for the love of “science,” if a rather nebulous kind that has little bearing on how our phones could fare when they fall off the deck.
That’s one of the explanations why their dependability is low. They do, however, paint a positive picture of the phone’s general robustness. Today’s new video aims to provide us with some insight into how the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra would fare in a conventional drop test, in comparison to other handsets.

Shocking results from Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra durability tests
The video comes from PBKreviews, a YouTuber who has performed multiple tests to check the physical strength of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra. The video begins with the YouTuber performing a drop test. Following a set pattern of gradually increasing the height, the YouTuber first drops the phone from waist height.
The device succumbs to the fall in the very first instance, developing minor cracks on the screen. Thus there is no need for it to be drop tested from any further height. Unnoticeable at first, the small cracks on the screen and scrapes on the body become visible upon close inspection.
The YouTuber then goes on to drop the phone on its backside, its edge, and its rim. There are more minor cracks on the screen and more scrapes on the frame as well as the Titanium body with each drop. One noteworthy thing is that the display remains fine and functional and also there is no damage to the camera lenses.
The video then proceeds to demonstrate a scratch test done by running the screen with fine and coarse sand. However, the phone successfully passes the test without developing a single scratch.
Concluding remarks over physical durability of Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra
Despite Samsung’s claims of using Gorilla Glass Armor in the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, the phone screen develops cracks upon a fall from waist height. The all-new Titanium frame shows positive results and is an improvement over the S23 series. While the display remains intact and the camera lenses also remain undamaged, Samsung still needs to work on the physical strength of its screen glass and make it more durable.
