I found my self shouting slightly to this video (think it was just the shock!)

Its most in depth test iv seen as far as drop tests are concerned, have a look for yourself.

Similar to others. Either way I can't believe how many different videos there are of people doing this. Must enjoy smashing money.

It was dropped a couple times before it bent.

For Petes sake. How many drop tests do we need?

THINGS BREAK WHEN DROPPED. It's almost as though people didn't know this!

Why do I find it not hard to believe that that guy has trouble finding his pants pockets? Or remembering where his phone is?

Welcome to the 21st century:
  • Everything is indestructible...unless it breaks. Then it's shoddy manufacuring.
  • If it breaks, it is ALWAYS the manufactures fault, Even if you throw it on the ground, put it through the washing machine or drop it in a can of paint thinner. Breaking something you own is NEVER your fault, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
  • No one should ever have to fulfill a contract they signed. It's practically communism the way companies expect you to fulfill a legal agreement you entered into.
  • Looking up information yourself or having any kind of research skill is not necessary. Even if you have to wait a day for an answer on a forum it still makes more sense than googling "broken speaker on iPhone" or calling your cell carrier to ask them a question. The internet does not have some kind of "searchable knowledge database" for you to find answers to your questions, so don't even bother.
  • Any company that charges money for goods or services is overcharging you and you should find every way you can, including but not limited to lying, fraud, and misrepresentation of facts. This is your right and duty to lie as much as possible, especially if it involves getting out of a contract you legally signed (see above).
