The testing revealed that both smartphones cave at 110 lbs of pressure. HTC One M9 was also subjected to a similar test and found to be able to withstand 120 lbs of pressure but after that it was reduced to junk as the power button is in the center and no longer works.
The test revealed that iPhone 6 Plus was sturdiest of the three with capacity to withstand 179 lbs of pressure till it went kaput, whereas Galaxy S6 edge managed to last up to only 149 lbs of pressure. SquareTrade pointed out that Samsung S6’s glass may shatter into lots of pieces under such pressure rendering it useless and even injurious to the user.
