We found it extremely difficult to watch this Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge drop test video

Samsung gives us a glimpse into its smartphone testing facility to show off how tough its latest superphones really are

Dropping your smartphone isn't exactly up there with the funnest experiences that life has to offer.

From concrete to bus floors, our handsets have faced the harsh reality of life far too many times over the years.

Traditionally, plastic handsets offer the most durability, while those slathered in metal manage to pick up lovely dents, scratches and chips.

Glass-backed handsets like the Sony Xperia Z3 can also shatter when abruptly bumping against pavements, and screens are of course, the main weak point in all devices.

Up until the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge came along, Samsung's flagships have been primarily plastic, and despite feeling cheap, you could happily drop them on their rear without worrying too much.

Its latest flagship handsets have glass backs however, and while they look and feel lovely, Android fans have expressed there concern regarding both sides of the handsets potentially shattering when dropped.

Samsung has decided to put them all at ease however, with a video showing off some of its durability testing.

Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are slathered in tough Gorilla Glass 4 on both sides, and they both hold up well after being dropped from chest height from Samsung's smartphone torture machine.

The tech giant does go on to say that its handsets obviously aren't invincible and can shatter or break if dropped, but so too will car windshields and watch faces.

Oh, and it goes without saying - don't try this at home.
