iPhone 5 Drop Test from 50 feet high

Over the week, we’ve been doing some video shoots of iPhone 5 tips for our @GeekyNights podcast and right after we finished all 12 clips, we decided to do something crazy with the iPhones. Drop it off the 2nd floor of the building just to see what happens.

Turns out the iPhone 5 is a very, very solid and tough device to break.

But break it we will! So here’s the result.

We tried it with two iPhone 5s actually. One of them survived. We had a little fun with the challenge so we tied ours in a makeshift parachute, just for kicks. Here’s the short video.

Surprisingly, one of the iPhone 5s survived — without a scratch!

So what we will do is give it away to our readers/viewers of GeekyNights to they can do their own drop test. You folks game with that?

Here’s your chance to win the iPhone 5 (a new one, not the smashed one):

  6. I think the admin of this web page is really working hard in favor of his web page, because here every data is quality based material.
