Well maybe not around the world, but it was definitely audible to those standing around. Listen, you don’t have to take my word for it, see for yourself http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGyryRhFHVk .
During the long-awaited iPhone 5 urm, sorry iPhone 4s debut, we heard many rumors. We heard there was going to be an amazing camera, lighting fast browsing speed and of course indestructible glass.
This last phenomenon alone would close down factories in China and numerous cell phone repair shops all over the world. The team here at Injured Gadgets wanted to put all the rumors to rest and our customers at ease, so we created this iPhone 4s drop test video. It all started around 7:10 PM on Sunday October 16th, 2011. We tested a couple of different heights (roughly 2 feet, 3 feet and 5 feet) on the pavement at a local park. What we have discovered is, if you are 2 feet tall and drop your phone, you’re probably in the clear. Anyone over 2 feet tall dropping their phone will likely have to deal with a few cracks or a nick or two at the very least. At a roughly 3 foot drop, the back glass shattered into several cracks, but the front glass was unharmed. Finally, our final drop at roughly 5 foot shattered the front glass completely. It’s not all negative though, there is a silver lining. Even though we had completely destroyed our new iPhone 4s, our dear SIRI was still functional and the phone seemed to be internally undamaged.
Listen folks this isn’t some indestructible glass, I actually think some of the earlier models of the iPhone may have been a little more durable. What we will say is that this version seems sleeker, faster, with a tricked out camera and of course there is the addition of our beloved SIRI.
My opinion, buy the phone, but be super careful and put it in a case. If you do drop it and it sees the same fate as our drop test phone, just remember, we’ll always be there for you.
Until next time…
