iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have been getting all sorts of brutal treatments to see how much better they are at survival when compared to their predecessors. This new drop test video by Phonebuff involves repeatedly dropping the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus at different angles and from varying heights, to see how the 7000 series aluminum and the special dual ion‑exchange glass handle the falls.
The video involves both phones dropped from the back, side and with the display facing the concrete floor. The phone comes out with a few scratches and bumps but the glass ends up cracking when it meets the floor. Definitely not a sight any iPhone owner would want to see.
Considering that the video is sponsored by an iPhone repair company, take the video with a grain of salt. It happens that sometimes the softest of falls can end up breaking your iPhone’s glass and the worst of falls can have no effect on it. It is best to be careful when handling your smartphone, no matter what brand is it.
P.S. here is the cost if you break your iPhone screen and have to get it replaced by Apple. Prices for old iPhones also included:
