    Man, that hurt to watch, especially since I'm waiting for my gold.

    So, what exactly was the point of that?

    Just to destroy a phone?

    I never understood videos like these. I get it. People (like some of us, present company included) can get a little crazed about getting our hands on these phones but still...why this?

    I guess they do it for exposure. However less than 2000 people have watched it. Not exactly viral. lol

    WTF?

    Got to say I was impressed the phone stood up to the liquid damage, though.

    People on YouTube spend a lot of money on things to destroy them!

    Probably could have sold it instead. But web hits were clearly more important.

    I was impressed with how much liquid was poured on it and it stayed on!

    I think who waits days in line to get an iPhone has a lot more sense than someone like that. At least who waits in line for it, knows that it is worth. I do understand videos like drop test, water damage tests and such, but this is just retarded.

    Seems like the thing didn't fully pass the Champagne Test.

    I would assume the guy has AppleCare+ on this and just ate the 80 bucks.

    They check for water damage before they will help you.
