  Study: Samsung Phone Durable, But IPhone Has Edge
       Associated Press  
    NEW YORK , April 15: Samsung´s new Galaxy S5 smartphone is more durable than last year´s model and other leading Android phones, but the iPhone 5s outperformed all of them in part because of its smaller size, a new study finds.

The S5 scored well given its water resistance and a sturdy back panel made of plastic, according to SquareTrade, a provider of extended protection plans. The iPhone 5s won points for being just 4 inches (10 centimeters) diagonally, compared with about 5 inches for the Android phones. That makes the iPhone easier to grip and thus less likely to slip out of one´s hands.

“Of course we didn’t see it coming, but I’ve always known him as a person with revolutionary ideas…and someone who wouldn’t deter from putting those thoughts into action. So when he told us what he wanted to be done with his body after death, it didn’t really astonish me,” Aman told Republica.
