Video: Peek Inside Samsung’s Multi-Stage Device Stress Test Facility

I have always been curious as to just how these manufacturers test their many different devices. Do they simply let robots push the buttons or is it much more thorough? Luckily, Samsung has released a video that gives us an insider look into the world of multi-stage device stress testing. The only downer is that it’s completely in Korean. 

My favorite will have to go to Samsung’s “fat bottom” test. We salute you, Samsung for your continued innovations in the mobile field.

    Clearly shows I can piss on my phone and it’ll be fine

    • Toasted_Cracker

      That made me laugh. 🙂

  • Translate the Closed Captions to give you a good laugh

    This video makes me even more sure that the Note 2 is going to be my next phone, no question about it. Well done Samsung!

    2:46 (http://goo.gl/GyjQB) – you can see the Verizon Note 2 get all wet.

    Can’t miss the VERIZON branding everywhere on every VERIZON phone that VERIZON sells in the VERIZON stores or on VERIZON.com or even 3rd party VERIZON retailers. VERIZON is soon to start offering discounted pricing for VERIZON tattoos.


    • Wow that logo really is hideous, makes me want to get my Note II even less!

  • bogy25

    I’d like to see how they test the RAZR MAXX HD in the Motorola factory

  • iNfAMOUS70702

    It’s amazing how Samsung went from a joke to the king of smartphones…

  • JoeInMO

    I’m sure I heard something about Kung Pao Chicken in one of those tests.

    • Definitely heard “creme huf sum-yun gui”

  • The Note II comes with Gorilla Glass 2 correct? EVERYWHERE I am seeing mixed answers.

  • hehehe proud to be korean and understand

  • Really cool and if you wanna have a laugh turn on the translated captions!

    I find these tests hard to believe considering my GS3 front glass just broke from me sitting it down on my kitchen counter. Very unhappy.

    • chris125

      I highly doubt it just broke from you “sitting it down on the counter”

  • So. Explain how the Nexus 4 passed the durability tests? You know…glass and all…

    • TheFirstUniverseKing

      …because it wasn’t made by Samsung?

      • Justin Swanson

        Probably that…

    • LAmDroid

      Im guessing LG doesnt typically send their devices to Samsung for testing

      • Not quite what i had meant. Haha. Im sure LG has to have something of their own.

  • If I wasn’t lazy, I’d help translate most of these…

    • bump then maybe I’ll come back for it in a hour. going for train ride.

  • dave

    my fat ass would crush my phone.

  • I have more faith in Samsung phones’ durability now. I’d definitely like some insight into other manufacturers’ testing process.

  • TheFirstUniverseKing

    Dat ass.

  • Paul

    If only LG had this facility.

    • michael arazan

      If LG had any idea how stupid it is to put a glass back on a phone.

  • Trevor

    Yellow chocolate chips taste the best.

    • I think it was “i dropped my phone in my cream corn, because i am an american and love creamed corn…test”

      But really ive seen enough How It’s Made to know that those are abrasive…thingies…they use to polish stuff.

  • Justin Swanson

    No drop test?

    • jaybar

      did you even watch the video?

    • NexusPhan69

      You didn’t actually watch it did you…

      • Brandon


        You’re welcome.

        • Justin Swanson

          FFFffff… was watching it at work and must have looked away… thanks for the correction!

          • NexusPhan69

            This all just made me laugh for some reason.

  • MrToTo83

    If they do this. Why the heck does my device stop working with just moisture! I call shenanigans!

    • Obviously faulty. I have used both of my two S3’s in the rain and both work great

  • David Parrella

    It’s ok, I’ve heard Gangam Style so much I practically speak Korean.
