Which is more likely to survive a bad drop, iPhone 4S or Samsung Galaxy S II?

Apple offers a pretty good protection plan for iPhone 4S. AppleCare+ adds a second year of standard warranty coverage and phone replacement for $49 — all for $99 at point of purchase. Do you need it? For that matter, if you like me chose Galaxy S II instead, do you need AT&T’s $9.99/month insurance, which offers phone replacement for $125? Or if on another carrier, the insurance they offer? I’ve wondered. Haven’t you?

Warranty/insurance provider SquareTrade offers some real insight in video: “iPhone 4S vs. Samsung Galaxy S II Drop Test“. It’s amazing how much tension watching someone nonchalantly drop a cell phone creates. Perhaps it’s that sickening feeling this could happen to you or the anticipation that your phone will do better than the other.

You’ll have to watch the video to see which, if either, survives or in what condition. Please offer your reaction in comments. This is one of those rare occasions where I encourage you to be bit of a fanboy. 🙂

Oh, confession: I spotted this video at TechCrunch.
