Drop Test Banne

ABOUT THE TEST

LATEST VIDEO

Offering the most accurate and consistent drops possible via a professional drop testing machine, our unique "PhoneBuffStyle" drop test has quickly become a go-to source for smartphone and tablet durability tests.

The test consists of dropping a device on its back, corner, and front from 1 meter. If a device survives the first three drops, it enters the "bonus" round where it's dropped up to 10 additional times from 1.5 meters.  The device with the highest score after all four "rounds" is declared the winner.
