I ran over my phone today with my riding mower and it is insane how much it destroyed it. It fell off my mower and I didnt realize it and on another pass I hit it. It tore into such small pieces that I am surprised I found my sim card. What is the worst you have damaged a phone before?

I dropped a Samsung something phone into a pond while on a boat and it sank like instantly, that's about as bad as I can go.

I also dropped an iPhone 3G literally five inches onto a table and it completely shattered and died, and weirdly I once threw the replacement 3G at a wall because spider and not a scratch.

Yeah nothing like a lawn mower lol

I had a dog destroying totally 2 phones. He ate an Ericsson T-28,and a few months later,the same dog stepped on,and crushed my "indestructible " Ericsson "shark fin" phone.

Lets see photos!

I was mad once and snapped my iPhone 6 in half with my hands ... That body phone was not very strong at all (Bend Gate)

Man, and I thought my dog was bad. I never had a destructive dog I couldn't train until this one. I miss my last dog. He was grumpy and cut farts that could peel paint. But he was a good dog. This dog I've got now is so crazy. She's sweet but a huge load of trouble.

As for phone destruction, I dropped my IPhone 6 Plus and had the usual shatter. I've not yet experienced such dramatic obliteration as @mclld but I also stay away from lawn mowers. I've been scared to death of them ever since I read Lawnmower Man by Stephen King. :eek:

And being a spindly little girl until middle age got me, I wasn't ever expected to mow the lawn anyway. My mom mowed the lawn with a push mower, but my mom was 5ft of pure muscle and attitude!

I chainsawed my Android phone in half back in 2012.

That phone had caused me so much grief. It was therapeutic to destroy it after getting the iPhone 5.

Funny, now I have an Android phone again and, this time, I love the device. How an OS can change in five years! :p
