iPhone 5 Destroyed: Run Over By Car, Thrown Out Of Window, And Chucked 20 Feet In The Air


Yeah, the title pretty much says it all. We took the iPhone 5 from our drop test with the Galaxy S3, which also starred in the hammer and knife test we did recently, and put it through one last torture test. Against a car. And then we threw it out the window while driving. And then…. Well, you’ll just have to watch the video to find out how much punishment the iPhone 5 can take:

Yeah, we kind of figured the iPhone would finally break when we threw it up 20 ft in the air. But if you listen closely right after that last test, you’ll hear the iPhone 5 get a new email. So yeah, the screen wasn’t working but technically the device still was. If that isn’t impressive, than we don’t know what is. To sum up the durability of this 6th generation iPhone, we’ll leave you with what one of our editors said about it: The iPhone 5’s hidden feature is the fact that it can be used as a weapon!
