Nexus 5 drop test: will it survive?
Android Authority has got a white Nexus 5 and has tested the phone’s durability right in front of the Googleplex, next to the Android statues of cupcakes, gingerbreads and jelly beans.
We won’t spoil it for you, but we should mention that the Nexus 5 features a non-removable battery and the back cover is not meant to be removed by the user either. However, unlike other smartphones like the HTC One, the construction of the new Nexus is not unibody. There are separate parts.
With no further ado, it’s drop test time and the results are right below.
