Has anyone with butterfingers dropped their phones constantly without the device suffering any serious damage? Today's phones have much better protection starting with the Gorilla Glass that is on the Kyocera Echo. The video claims that Kyocera tests each device quite heavily, including opening and closing each unit 100,000 times. We counted 16 pretty severe hits that the Echo took in this one video alone, any one of which could have put a cell phone out of commission for good.
One final thought. While we did see a Kyocera Echo get pounded, we never did see if the phone remained in working condition after taking the whacks that it did. Any Kyocera Echo owners out there who can verify just how tough this smartphone is?
