Samsung Tests Its Phones Using a Massive Fake Arse

I have no idea what the guy in this video is banging on about (it's in Korean), but apparently in Samsung's army of smartphone testing apparatus is a 100kg arse, which it dutifully drops onto its phones. Now that's proper testing right there.

I'm not surprised Samsung tests things like this; when you're building phones with enormous screens in the 4.7-inch plus range, I'm pretty sure getting sat on is one of the primary ways they get destroyed. That twisting test though, ugh, that looks bloody painful. Ouch. [YouTube via Engadget]
