HTC One vs iPhone 5 drop test results in broken glass, shattered dreams

Today's high-end smartphones are fragile creatures, regardless of whether they're made of metal or plastic. Usually a drop or two onto a hard surface result in damage that can't be undone, unless repaired by a professional. Yet some handsets fare better when it comes to accidental drops. Is the metal-made HTC One among them? Well, this drop test video should provide the answer to that question.

The HTC One goes head to head against a competitor that should theoretically be equally sturdy, namely the iPhone 5. Both devices have bodies made of metal, which ensures their rigidity, yet have glass-made screens that are prone to cracking on impact. Yet despite that, one of the two held up somewhat better during the challenge. Check out the video below and see which one it was!
