What a wast is the first thought that comes to mind.
My thoughts are always the same.
More money than sense and don't drop your phones.
I find drop tests quite fun to watch. Sure it's a waste of money but hey, it's their money not mine.
Anyway, both phones held up pretty well, but when you drop any phone screen first onto concrete it's bound to shatter.
Sometimes you could not avoid drop your phone or tablet. Accidents do happen. My mother droped my iPad Mini and the screen got cracked and leave noticeable dent on one corner of iPad. I also droped my phone several times, but luckily, i have the defender case.
Such tests are fairly pointless regardless of what is being dropped.
From a business standpoint, anything popular is automatically worth doing. 27k views already and probably a million by years end? That's a lot of eyeballs for less than two grand in outlay.
Will it blend?
These drop tests are stupid and useless since people don't actually drop their phones like that.
I thought for sure the 5C would surely bounce higher than the 5S -- but the 5S easily out-bounced the the polycarbonate clad 5C.
I'm rethinking my purchase now.
Will it bend?
I think it will.
You guys ever drop your phone and think you are actually an amazing soccer player that can catch it with your foot to only find out you are not?
So you think a phone might land...?
My wife once reached for her phone from her bag, it slipped, hit the pavement and slide 20 feet away. That's how phones fall or they bounce on the corners.
What is the purpose of holding the phone flat as you drop it? That's not even in any naturally position when you are using it.
It might land in a variety of positions. I say this video does not demonstrate something impossible, but i also say that they might fall like that. Just depends on the situation.
Get a wife who drops her iPhones flat as shown in the test. .....
Echo the opinions of others, what a waste. This is particularly so because the 5s is so hard to come by. Buying it just to break it, doesn't seem right.
It was only a matter of time before someone wasted $700
Another drop test. Sorry if it's been posted, I've been using my magic mouse and playing GTA lol
I have a wife..she reached for her iphone once from her bag and the thing fell and slide across the pavement. Luckily we keep our phones in a Speck Candyshell case so only the case got all scratched up.
People get far too worked up about these drop tests. You'd think he was dropping babies?
It's important to remember that this isn't being done for fun or just for the shock value of seeing someone damage something expensive. It's informative. As someones who's currently waiting for my new 5s to arrive, I've been putting a lot of thought into whether I will put it in a case or not. As it is, I currently carry my 3Gs caseless. I personally found it very helpful to see that the 5s survived multiple drops from multiple positions on a hard surface and only received superficial damages.
Also note that Apple no doubt does their own stress and damage tests behind closed doors, but consumers just don't get to see it. It's no different than car makers doing crash tests. If I'm going to invest a lot of money in a product, I greatly appreciate getting to see how durable it is.
I'm sure ad monetization offsets the price of the phones. Without the videos the income wouldn't be there so it's not like they could be using the money on something different.
waste of time. just as the whole "unboxing" videos.
I held my breath when I dropped my original iPhone. I was standing in a blacktopped driveway, the device was in one of those reasonably protective Incase soft cases around back and sides, and the thing fell about 30 inches. No harm done but I had one of those slo-mo event experiences, where three-quarters of a second or whatever it was seemed like five long minutes.
I've kinda coddled the 4S in its bumper (and keep it jacketed in a Waterfield suede sleeve in my handbag) but no problem even after all this time, so not going to start worrying over it now.
Not concerned about the 5C (in an Apple case) even if the glass is raised off the surface of a table just a tiny bit when placed face-down on the front rim of the external case. If I haven't busted the 4S yet making that kind of set-down, don't think I'm going there with the 5C either. But, I might look into a Waterfield jacket for the 5C too, if they will be making one that accommodates the device in Apple case. I like the jacket that has a black stretchy-mesh pocket in front for earpods (and money or a credit card if I'm just out and about on foot).
This test is not scientific.
