HTC One X can double as a hammer: myth busted
posted by Victor H. / Jun 07, 2012, 7:55 AM
The HTC One X looks beautiful, and last week we learned it was tough as nails. A video surfaced showing two HTC engineers using the One X to hammer down nails – yes, literelly - with no visible damage to the screen. Well, we said back then that you shouldn't try this at home, but some people just wouldn't listen.
Over in Taiwan, the One X ended up in the hands of a curious users who had nails at hand and obviously no hammer. Well, you guess how it all ended up – after a couple of hits, the beautiful screen of HTC's flagship was beautifully broken, with a huge crack near the middle. Myth busted, we guess. And one HTC One X wasted along the way, but hey at least there's a video of the whole thing below, so go check it out - you have to hit the source link for that. Skip past the source, and you've got the original One X hammering nails and surviving video.

Replacing hammers with phones seems very smart.

We have seen that guy hammering nails and the ONE X was just fine fully ok !! We never seen the video of that guy who told that his ONE X was broken when he did the same !! He could also have hammered nail in to the ONE X !!

its not really beleiveable cause it just skips to the the part where he shows it's broken but not how it's been done

yeah, man.. he could've cracked that screen nailing the phone with a nail gun.. i was hoping he did what the HTC guy did and showed us the cracked screen.. but instead he showed the aftermath.. and that could be from anything, not only from hammering..

I don't see any cracks on the screen when the guy turns it off to show that there is nothing there. I'm wondering if you took one video and pic from another video. As I was watching this, I cringed with every hit. I don't know why I did that because I didn't cringe once when I watched the Lumia 900, but that might be becasue of it being a Nokia/WP7 device.
