The gang at TechSmartt did a thorough test, dropping all three phones from waist height, head height and even over-the-head height to see who would survive. First to die was the iPhone 5S. Apple's phones did very well in previous drop tests (probably aided by the relatively small screen), but it landed on its face in this one, cracking the screen from only head height.
Going over the head, the Galaxy S5 was next to go, suffering a fatal screen crack while the HTC One kept on ticking. Only when the HTC fell from an unlikely 10-foot drop did it, too, get smashed.
