SquareTrade Labs

Smartphones are a $250-billion dollar category led by Apple and Samsung, who bi-annually launch new iPhone and Galaxy models that are faster, larger and thinner than their predecessors. But are they more durable? Enter SquareTrade Labs. We give each smartphone a Breakability Score for the most common kinds of accidents using test bots designed and constructed in collaboration with UC Berkeley robotics engineers.
