How will the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus perform on this drop test?
But something went wrong, and the box was opened at a slight angle, enough to send the iPhone 6 plummeting to the ground with Jack's hopes and dreams in tow. Watching the video all over again brings back all of the pain.
Today, we have something a little different. A drop test was conducted today by Phone Buff on the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. After traveling to Sydney to grab the new iPhones, the drop test was quickly performed on the new units. Both phones had minor scuffs after being dropped back side first. A side drop resulted in damage to the 3.5mm earphone jack on the iPhone 6s. The iPhone 6s Plus also received some damage to the area near the earphone jack after being dropped on its side.
When the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus were dropped with the screen facing downward, both displays did crack, but both were still usable. The test makes us very interested in seeing the unannounced Motorola Moto X Force, which is rumored to feature an unbreakable screen. This device could end up as the Motorola DROID Turbo 2, which means that it will be heavily marketed by Verizon and Motorola in the states. Will unbreakable mean unbreakable, or will it mean that Verizon will replace a cracked screen for free? We could see the Moto X Force released in time to capture some Christmas and Chanukah sales, and at that time we will take a hard look at the phone's display.
But we digress. The bottom line here is that dropping a smartphone always brings the possibility of damage. Even if your phone is built like a tank, you should put a case on it. Even if you have insurance on your phone, why shell out the co-pay and waste your valuable time? And don't worry about the case taking away from the looks of your device. Walking around with a damaged smartphone isn't going to impress anyone.
Thanks for the tip!
