Could not be more correct about those who have experience with previous Moto products. I have had the Droid, D2G,3 and currently the 4. Drop the phone and it leaves a dent in the concrete sidewalk.

While Motorola's phones aren't invincible, the ones I've had have always been pretty tanklike. I deliberately dropped my Droid X multiple times on purpose just to show it wouldn't break when I worked for a Verizon indirect store. My Cliq, V195s and Atrix all took good hits with little visible damage. (I somehow dented the plastic on my Atrix's back, giving it a distinctive scar). About 20 minutes after I got my Droid Mini I dropped it onto linoleum from about four feet up-not a scratch.
So yeah, while I would say I'm a little surprised the drop test didn't break the screen, I'm not totally in shock, and I would credit the Moto X's design with its survival.

These tests are so dumb and subjective; it's truly all about having fortune on your side in these circumstances. You never truly know what's going to happen to a phone when it impacts on concrete or a very rough and hard surface. Your phone might survive one drop, but it's never guaranteed to survive another.

Maybe, the Moto X and iPhone 5S clearly hit the floor with the back side of the corner. Anyway, I liked the way that they did these tests!.

my optimus one is better than these four! XD
optimus one = ultra durable phone!!!
iPhone = Chinese quality
Moto X = American quality

lol, location of assembly has nothing to do with the quality of the product, its all about the materials used and design of the device.
On a side note, the Chinese have very high quality products, we as Americans just buy the cheap crap with abysmal quality and assume that Chinese stuff is bad.

Slide the Nexus 4 off the table and you'll be repairing a hole in the wall.
Good to see a real scientific testing process instead of guys randomly dropping phones. Results aren't surprising, except for the S4, it should have done better. Let's hope Samsung's Design 3 phase is better.

How are you gonna show tests that show the moto x as the best phone against the elements and then offer a drawing for an iPhone 5s? Lol

I was wondering the exact same thing.
Square Trade: Motorola Moto X more durable than the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c
