Can A Samsung Galaxy S6 Survive Being Run Over By A Tesla Model S?

As an Android user and avid fan of Samsung, I’ve been nothing but impressed with the reliability and durability of my Galaxy S5 smartphone. And right on schedule, about a year after I first bought it, it’s already obsolete, replaced by the Galaxy S6. To me, the S6 isn’t worth the cost of the upgrade, but I might have to reconsider after watching a Tesla Model S apply over two tons of torture to Samsung’s new flagship smartphone.

Using a Tesla Model S is a smart move for two reasons. First off, anything Tesla instantly gets more clicks and traffic by virtue of Elon Musk’s marketing acumen. Secondly, weighing in at more than 4,600 pounds, the Model S is a hefty hunk of electric automobile, exerting more than 1,100 pounds of pressure onto the Samsung smartphone. Amazingly, even after repeated passes, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is battered, broken, but still functional (if quite a bit more jagged).

Maybe I should reconsider that upgrade after all.
