iPhone 4S A Very Fragile Smartphone: Drop Test Video
One would have thought that when Apple delivers a new iPhone they would consider the fact that some people have a tendency to drop their smartphone on occasion, but it seems that Apple continues to ignore this and just like the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4S is still just as fragile.
And to show just how fragile the iPone 4S is we have a video of a guy who minutes after purchasing the updated iOS smartphone, gives the device the drop test right outside the AT&T store where it was bought.
The Official: iPhone 4S Drop Test Outside AT&T footage comes our way courtesy of Unitediphonerepair, and shows the guy dropping the iPhone 4S from roughly shoulder height and on the first attempt comes off unscathed, but when the second drop flat on its face occurs, well the results are evident in the video below.
Personally I think that not just the iPhone 4S but the iPhone 4 is quite susceptible to drop damage mainly due to that glass front and back, but I have been using the Samsung Galaxy S for quite some time now and have on several occasions dropped the device and it is still as good as new, with not even a scratch on the touch screen.
Thus although the iPhone faithful try to get everyone to believe that the Apple smartphone is the best thing since sliced bread, if you are prone to accidentally dropping your handset perhaps one should give Apple devices a miss in favour of another mobile phone, something like an Android handset that can withstand the occasional drop without becoming a pile of junk.
That’s it my piece is said and done all you need do now is head on down to check out this guy destroying his newly purchased iPhone 4S…enjoy.
