The titanium used in the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is inferior to the iPhone 15 Pro
Kathmandu. Both Samsung and Apple are advertising their latest flagship smartphones as being made of titanium. Both Galaxy S24 Ultra and Apple iPhone 15 Pro models have been made of strong metal.
However, in a test, the titanium used in Samsung phones was found to be weaker than that of the iPhone. Jack Nelson, a YouTuber of JerryRigEverything, uploaded a video about the Galaxy S24 Ultra just a few days ago.
Which focuses on some facts about the amount and type of titanium used by Samsung in the phone. Initially, the YouTuber arranged a scanner to identify the metal of the S24 Ultra.
The internal structure of the phone is mostly made of aluminum, while the outer frame is made of titanium. Samsung has used grade 2 titanium in the phone, while Apple has used grade 5 titanium in the frame of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max.
Grade 5 titanium is a stronger and more durable metal than grade 2 titanium, because it is a metal made from a mixture of titanium, aluminum and vanadium. Due to quality, 5th grade titanium is four times more expensive than 2nd grade titanium. So basically you will find the frame of the iPhone 15 Pro model to be more durable than the Galaxy S24 Ultra.
Apple uses a very strong solid-state diffusion process to bond the titanium band to the inner frame. While Samsung uses overmolding method to put plastic in between to lock both aluminum and titanium metal together.
Those YouTubers have mentioned that by melting the body of Samsung S24 and separating the aluminum and plastic, Samsung may have used titanium worth three to five US dollars in the S24 Ultra. While Apple has used metal worth about 10 to 15 US dollars in iPhone 15 and 15 Pro Max.
Of course, this does not include the additional cost of shaping and molding the metal. However, overall, Apple seems to be using higher quality and more expensive titanium in the iPhone 15 Pro series compared to the S24 Ultra.
