Yup. You read that correctly. Android Authority actually did an iPhone 5 drop test. It held up pretty darn well too! Check out the video and see for yourself…
Here’s what they had to say about the durable iPhone 5:
Well, as much as we hate to admit it, the iPhone 5 did amazingly well in our drop test, while the Samsung Galaxy S3 came out in pretty bad shape. It’s the cold hard truth that we can’t hide and we can’t ignore.
The hard aluminum shell of the iPhone 5 withstood the impact pretty well, and the glass protecting the display remained intact. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S3 predictably lost its back cover and suffered damage to the casing and the front glass. Sad, sad, sad.
iFixYouri did a drop test as well.
As you can see the iPhone 5 is one of the most durable iPhones to date. I’m pretty impressed by the durability here.
