Forget the bend test, here's the Xperia Z3 in Coke and Nutella tests!

Forget the bend test, here's the Xperia Z3 in Coke and Nutella tests!
The mobile manufacturers' strives to add some extra durability to their devices, and some of their design mistakes, have spawned a various array of obscure tests, done by users and tech bloggers in the recent years. From drop tests, to scratch tests, to bend tests, to liquid nitrogen tests, being-set-on-fire tests, and sniping tests, every new flagship device that gets introduced to the market will be tortured in an abnormal way, and it's gone to a point where it's being done in order to record the device's breaking point on camera, rather than its chance to survive everyday use. In light of this list, these two tests that we are about to show you lean more towards "normal" and "everyday" than "pointless destruction".

YouTuber adrianisen has the habit of testing smartphones, which are advertised as water-proof or resistant, by drowning them in Coca-Cola, and of course - the Sony Xperia Z3 has made its way to his list. As far as relevance to the real world goes – it's not hard to imagine spilling soda over your device, or dropping it in a bowl of liquid. And we've long heard of Coca-Cola's destructive properties (though it remains a guilty pleasure for many), so seeing a device dive in a glass of Coke can still make your heart skip a beat, even if you know it is being toted as "water-proof".

Well, for the Xperia Z3, adrianisen went the extra mile and busted out a jar of Nutella, and covered the device in the sticky chocolate – aiming to simulate the phone being dropped in real-world grime, and test the reliability of its dust-proof label.

We won't spoil the videos for you, though we suggest you don't watch the Nutella one if you are hungry.

I do pure water on my Z2 just to scare my gf. After having that phone since it first came out, she still falls for it. Fun time, fun time :P

Hardly any other phone would be able to survive these tests. The iPhone would be a dead duck if this occurred. The same hold true for any Nokia, dead.

I wish people would stop destroying perfectly good phones. Drop tests, bend tests, like guys come one.... Who the heck spreads nutella on a cellphone? Are we 6 years old? Maybe your son wants to play Subway Surfers and forgets to clean his hands off after eating a Nutella sandwich. So just hand him your $700 phone and damn the Nutella...yuh.... naw..

No one forced you to click the article and view the content. Just letting you know.

Well umm. He just told his opinion about the content in the article. Isn't that the whole meaning of the comment section?

As did I so whats your point?

Because what does it have to do with his comment if he was forced to watch the videos or not? You didn't point out any opinions you just gave an "incredible piece of advice". And why would you even say that it just doesn't fit there at all.

It sort of defeats the purpose of his rant that he has chosen to support the test with his presence, not to mention his comment. If he truly meant it, he would simply stay away from articles like this, and thus further their demise...

17. ArtSim98 (Posts: 3535; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)


How on earth did he support the test with that comment or opening the article?

Well, the more interest a given subject is shown, the more it'll be perpetuated and exposed. Viewing the article, despite the obvious headline, makes you a statistic in favour of the subject, and commenting on it, positive or negative, has no measurable effect other than acknowledging it's relevance...

By reading the title and NOT viewing the content. I don't see how that's hard at all.

You're only siding with him because it's Sony. If it were some other OEM you wouldn't have said anything you did above. Pretty obvious.

Wow Akki is right you've really switched to something stronger. In this discussion nobody ever mentioned Sony. You're the first one to bring that up.

I'm just sick of people saying "well nobody forced you to open the article" or "if you're not interested in the device why did you come here and comment". It's just stupid. He just came and told his opinion about these torture tests in general. Also I don't have to be interested in let's say iPhone 6 to comment on iPhone 6 articles. I can go on them and post "I don't care". It means I don't care it doesn't mean that I'm actually envious of the device and just trying to cover it. Stupid ass assumptions.

You know what Smurf? Anytime you're loosing a bit in these small debates, you always start saying "my comment still stands" or "weak argument" and never accept what others say. You just start referring to your old posts. Your comments on this article never made sense in the first place and they never had a point
... bye and good night.

Same, I'd rather see them do a giveaway to their viewers instead of blending, shooting it w/ a rifle, shooting it with an arrow, or dropping it in liquid nitrogen.
