    This guy is no 'myth buster' but this seems to be a generic test.

    I know, just a bit on the chamfer, but considering the drop, impressive.

    Impressive, looks like Apple has really turned the tables on the iPhone. I still wouldn't want to drop it, but it is nice to know a minor drop wont shatter the back glass.

    Definently putting a case on mine. The white is very noticeable after drops from the pocket.

    Man, I was thinking of going with no case on my iPhone 5 (have always used one on every smart phone I have ever had) - but now, I may change my mind.

    Nokia's with front and back covers were the worst, had to find four or five pieces spread about the place!

    Trust me...Apple's already done this themselves. It's testing to give consumers an idea of device durability. I do thing it's stupid when people buy a new devices and then just shatter it in a celebration of destruction...but at least semi-scientific testing to determine real world durability is useful to the consumer.

    Think about the government crash tests...they smash up a bunch of cars from every model to determine safety things. That's 5 cars of a given model that are given JUST to crashing, and that's in addition to whatever torture tests the manufacturer performs. Since we don't have government testing of phone durability, sites like this take on the testing.

    Now...will it blend is just dumb (but oddly engaging).

    Yea, I thought the over the head drops would be the one that shatters and it it didnt! They even did it twice.

    Just make sure you don't lose your temper and throw the phone, didn't do so well in that test. :D
