A recent study by a smartphone insurer found that despite all of the upgrades, the durability of the Samsung Galaxy S4 may be an issue. As smartphones get bigger, lighter, and faster, durability remains an important concern.

In the video below, Fool.com contributor Doug Ehrman discusses the relative rank of Samsung's newest addition to the Galaxy line and how it stacks up against both its predecessors and Apple's flagship iPhone 5.
