Now, if you’ve just brought a brand-spanking new iPhone 4S (or a Samsung Galaxy S II for that matter), you’re probably a) lamenting the loss of a sizeable wad of cash and b) wondering if it’s worth insuring your expensive new toy. There’s nothing worse than a fumbled phone smashed into a million pieces.

Independent warranty company SquareTrade have a bit of cash to flash about, and took it upon themselves to see which phone out of the iPhone 4S or the Samsung Galaxy S II would fare better when dropped from a range of heights, and at differing angles.

The results will scare you enough into ringing them up for a quote immediately after seeing this.

We wont spoil the surprise by telling you which phone came out of the drop test least damaged, but we’re sure you’ll be surprised by the outcome.
