So, your HTC One X is tough as nails? Now, this is a crash test to prove it

So, your HTC One X is tough as nails? Now, this is a crash test to prove it
The HTC One X is one of the best-designed handsets we’ve seen recently - its unibody construction screams elite, but did you know it’s also tough as nails? Yes, literally.

Now, here is a crash test that really shows how tough is the HTC One X by... using it as a hammer. It’s plain funny and entertaining, and no - we definitely don’t recommend you trying this at home. Or at work. Anywhere actually, if you care about using your phone for a while despite the fact that it seems completely intact after all the bashing. 

Plus, it doesn’t seem to be that good of a hammer. We guess, the HTC Two X could be that. Right? Watch the video below to better appreciate the engineering effort that went into crafting the One X and its awesome Gorilla Glass screen.

I think it pained me more to watch that video than it did to the phone

Yes he did drop 3 times, but the other two times the phone fell on the plastic side. Ones the display hits the ground you are screwed!! My mom just shattered the one I got her for mothers day by dropping it while trying to put it in her pocket.

Ha ha ha, Fake fake fake.

Look at the nail and you see that the phone barely touched the nail.

But good job, lots of fun.

Obviously you're nerd who never hold a hammer and open a toolbox. Even if u hit a nail hard with a hammer, u can barely see the hammer touched the nail. Physics - two hard things when collided it will bounce back.

nah...nothing interesting..thedy did the same to Lumia 900.
Funny thing is those phones survive (mostly) lab tests but they puffing when it comes to real life (more or less accidental drop)

Never would have happened with the cheap POS ATT sold me. Traded it for a Note and never happier. Thought I'd hate the large screen, but don't see how I lived without it now. World of Goo and Where's My Water are so much more fun with a stylus too!

Oh come on he barely swings the hammer with any force when hitting display with the nails. Now the second part is just bs like the video on this post. Drop one and and see what happens. LOL

Hey, Try to hit that nail using the middle of the HTC instead of the upper part of the screen which is harder to break apart.
