Well I doubt you follow up on that YouTube guy considering there seems to be no logic in your mind but he's a Youtube Partner that makes a ton of iPhone how to vids and whatnot, but his reason for doing the first rocket drop test was actually to test if an iPhone could survive from terminal velocity.
There was a guy all over the internet for dropping his iPhone while sky diving from 13,000 ft and the phone survived, supposedly, so he wanted to test and see if it really could survive. Since iPhone reaches it's maximum fall rate fairly quickly, 13,000 would have been a redundant height and probably pretty dangerous and hard to find so instead he built a rocket to launch one to a sufficient height to reach terminal velocity.
Sounds pretty cleaver to me. Plus I love breaking expensive ****... Always have, but its better when I watch someone else break their own expensive ****... costs less anyway.
