On the whole, the iPhone (shattered back after 10' drops) fared better than the S21 (shattered front). But both were impressive, and the comparison is merely anecdotal.

The drops weren't particularly scientifically carried out - e.g. ensuring both dropped at the same angle, etc. - They were just dangled and dropped by hand. The Samsung broke first, but as mentioned both did well - and the back of the iPhone broke a long time before iirc.
