iPhone 5 Drop Test from 50 feet high

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):

    For the moment there I thought you got hold of the rumored iPhone 5s, lol. I suggest placing a separator there like “iPhone 5’s” to avoid confusion.

  3. Ric says:

    I really don’t get the logic behind doing a “drop test” for any device. What does it prove? Or to what benefit can we attribute it to?

    • Ram says:

      It’s the “adrenaline rush” that you get without bodily harm. You should try it.

    • Digest says:

      Alam mo na sagot sa tanong mo. Alam mo kasing magkakalat lang smartphone mo kung eto ang mag drop test.

    • garz says:

      I agree with you Ric. These tests are pointless. Every gadget breaks when dropped, even if equipped with Gorilla Glass and Kevlar. These tests prove nothing and are total waste of money.

    Not fun in my opinion. Could’ve just auctioned off those iPhones and donated proceeds to typhoon Pablo victims.

  8. Justin says:

    Why the heck would anyone want a phone that’s already been dropped???

  9. notjoiningthecontest says:
