How the Galaxy S9 is built to withstand abuse much better than the Galaxy S8
Smartphones made of glass are absolutely gorgeous, and most flagships unveiled at MWC 2018 will feature a glass sandwich design. The Galaxy S9 is among them, which is hardly surprising considering that Samsung shifted to glass a few years ago when it finally ditched plastic.
The problem with glass phones is that they tend to break easier than metal handsets after drops, and today’s devices are terribly expensive to repair following such accidents. That’s why I did this to my iPhone X, turning that beautiful slick design into a rather bulky gadget.
