The iPhone 13 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra are comparable in numerous areas. Which device comes out best in the test the moment you throw it around?
We ourselves don’t quite dare to use the two top devices as a baseball, so we gladly leave that to someone else. This is the result.
Good developments, bigger concerns
Smartphones have come a long way in recent years. Screens are getting bigger, screen edges are getting thinner, and camera systems consist of more lenses than ever before. Unfortunately, this in turn makes certain devices more susceptible to damage. The chances of dropping your phone at a critical point are quite high.
Companies like Apple and Samsung do everything they can to minimize the chance of damage. The iPhone 13 features Ceramic Shield and Samsung has addressed vulnerabilities in the design of its Galaxy S22. For example, the flagship features, both front and back, Gorilla Glass Victus+.

So it’s quite interesting to see how the two top models of the market score in terms of durability. How many times can you drop an iPhone 13 or Samsung Galaxy S22 before the whole party comes to an end? Time for a game of telephone toss!
iPhone 13 Pro Max vs Galaxy S22 Ultra
There are several platforms that test smartphones in this way, but PhoneBuff is among the larger ones. For the test, an iPhone 13 Pro Max was put next to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
After several drops to the side, back and top of the phones, the devices still remained pretty evenly matched. The iPhone had some damage to the camera system and a crack on the back. The Galaxy S22 Ultra fared a little better, but had to deal with the same damage.
The big difference is mainly in the front of the iPhone 13 Pro Max. After eleven different falls, the device had to deal with a number of cracks in the screen, but the smartphone still functioned perfectly. The damage to the back remained the same.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra suffered slightly more damage. The in-screen fingerprint scanner no longer worked, the S Pen did not come out of the device, and the damage to the back was getting worse.
iPhone 13 wins over the Galaxy S22
As you read or saw above, the first points went to Samsung, but in the end the iPhone 13 Pro Max holds its own. The smartphone manages to leave the top device from South Korea behind with a score of 39 versus 34.
This is certainly not the first time someone has participated in the iPhone Smashing World Cup. In September last year, the smartphone was already compared to its predecessor. Curious about the result? Then be sure to read this article!
