    I have seen it happen with a gopro before. But if it him leafy branches and fell in grass I can see it since then phone would flutter down and that's would slow it.

    It depends what surface it hit, and how the impact happened. If the phone landed on a grassy field with no stones, then the impact would have been softened by the surface. If however the phone landed on a concrete surface then there wouldn't be much left of the phone. This is a non-story really, as most cases where people shatter their phones happens when they drop their devices on very hard or sharp surfaces (i.e. concrete).

    Seems like a reasonably well off guy. You'd think he'd just buy another iPhone straight away. He must have really liked that particular one for some reason.
