iOS vs. Android: Skipping Stone Edition [video]

iOS vs. Android: Skipping Stone Edition [video]
In the endless debate of phone operating systems, there is at least one comparison we haven’t seen performed – which one makes a better skipping stone? While speed, reliability, form factor, and apps are all very important attributes; we often overlook the importance of a phones ability to bounce off of the surface when careened across a body of water.

In the video below, a Chinese man attempts to settle this argument once and for all by skipping an iPhone and a HTC Desire HD across a lake. Without further ado, ‘iOS vs. Android: Skipping Stone Edition’, or ‘How to ruin expensive things for absolutely no reason whatsoever.’



Some are saying that the devices may have been swapped out with non-functional demos right before the toss, but even if they weren’t, could you honestly say it’s the stupidest thing you ever saw someone do on YouTube?

How is this stupid? Both phones suck, they both deserve to be at the bottom of a lake. Maybe if it were a Nexus or SGS2 it would be stupid.

I think he put a little more strength tossing the Android. This idiot obviously hates both phones but hates android the most.

as any one in the science community could tell you no test's results can be trusted from just one test, so safe to say apple has not won yet. also I think there are some vitally urgent issues we NEED to know here, someone should contact all the major phone manufacturers and get hundreds of samples and preform a PROPER phone skipping test maybe throw in tablets and hell why not netbooks, e-readers and laptops too. the world NEEDS to know

lol thats funny. i figured the HTC would have won with the curved back. On the same note, they should try a 3gs and see if they can get that to bounce around. retry! lol
