Galaxy S5: what a phone views as it dropped from an airplane


There is an astonishing 11-minute video circling in Youtube, a recording of Samsung phone (Galaxy S5) allegedly tumbled from an airplane and miraculously made it through after landing in a backyard. This video is uploaded by Youtube user named Robert Ryan and he clearly mentioned in his video title that “This ain’t my phone (Unedited)”.

The phone happened to record the whole event. It looks like the guy was recording another aircraft in the vicinity from inside the plane. At the beginning of the recording it shows a clear scenery for a few moments and when it started falling from a height of 1,000 feet all we can see is unclear blue and green shades. The owner of the phone is Blake Henderson and later we came to know that the youtube guy who uploaded the video in Youtube is the nephew of the phone owner(Blake Henderson).

The remaining of the video recording shows the handset lying at the yard, capturing the green leaves moving gently as the wind blows and then we can hear some guys speaking and chuckling in the background with Kentucky accents. At the 7:30 minute of the video, a man comes closer and found the phone and he opts to keep on the recording. We can also hear some conversations in the background. The rest of the video shows only blurred light green and dark shade till the end.


Now you may think what makes this video so important? Of course, it is the phone which survived the  1,000 ft fall and it doesn’t damage the audio and video recording functions on the Galaxy S5. There is also a chance that this incident might be a well-planned advertisement for Samsung. Well, we don’t know for sure.
