whether the testing procedures of the Stiftung Warentest is practical or not, is time question. Finally smartphones can already exhibit strong damage after a fall. However, the test shows that apparently devices sensitive with a curved glass front crashes than models with traditional glass front. This shows the poor showing of the Galaxy S7 edge last year, while the Galaxy S7 retracts the test victory with traditional front glass. Stiftung Warentest therefore advises users of the Galaxy-S8 models to use the equipment only with cover.
