The LG V10 meets certain military specifications; can it survive getting run over by a tank?
The video starts with some traditional drop test standards. When the LG V10 landed on the bottom of the phone, there was some major cosmetic damage to the handset. The frame is metal, true, but there is plastic on the bottom edge which did not hold up to the impact. The next drop was done so that the impact would hit the rear cover of the phone. How did the Dura Skin material hold up? Designed to better withstand drops, the Dura Skin seemed to do its job well except for some minor scratches.
The next drop was done so that the impact would be on the 5.7-inch 1440 x 2560 QHD screen. While the display was cracked, it still was working perfectly. And that set up the big showdown. Could this phone, which a third party certified as strong enough to survive humidity, fungus, rust, sand, dust, explosive atmosphere, leakage, acceleration, shock and transport shock, gunfire vibration, and random vibration, survive getting run over by a tank?
Um, it's not even close. Still, the LG V10 didn't need to survive getting run over by a tank in order to be Transit Drop Compliant. Apparently, something like that doesn't happen often even to phone owners in the military. You can check out the gory images if you dare, by clicking on the video below. And as they say during those reality shows, viewer discretion is advised.
