The new iPhones are out in the wild, but not everyone is taking the best care of the coveted new devices. Check out the latest torture test results.
FixPod‘s findings are confirmed by PhoneBuff, which published a first extensive iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus drop test video on YouTube. In tests, the iPhone 6 came out unharmed when being dropped on its metal back and on the side, but its screen did break when the handset landed screen-first on the concrete. The iPhone 6 Plus did even worse, as it only survived one drop (on the back), whereas the side and display drops were catastrophic for the handset. The devices remained functional despite the shocks.
