So-called ‘smartphone’ not smart enough to avoid being dropped in the bog
A TOP-OF-THE-RANGE smartphone was not smart enough to avoid being dropped in a nightclub toilet.
Despite its Snapdragon 820 processor, 12MP sensors and 2x optical zoom, the £700 Samsung S7 was unable to extricate itself from a drunken night out before disaster struck.
Digital marketer Emma Bradford said: “A truly smart phone wouldn’t have been balanced precariously on the cistern at 1AM, especially given how pissed I was.
“To be honest I feel let down because it really should have known better. It could tell me the weather and Snapchat Australia but it did nothing to avoid shattering on the porcelain of a toilet bowl.
“I didn’t do that well in school, but I’ve been to the loo thousands of times and never injured myself. Perhaps I’m the real smart one after all.”
Samsung engineer Choi Yong-hwa said: “Our next generation of phones will be more impact-resistant, waterproof to three metres and can sense when they are in a Wetherspoon’s and will immediately order themselves an Uber.”
