What happens to the HTC Desire EYE when an elephant steps on it?

At the Eram Zoo in Tehran, a drop test was conducted on the HTC Desire EYE; as drop tests go, it really wasn't anything you haven't seen before. The phone was dropped on its back a couple of times and held up pretty well. But the very first time the phone was dropped face first, the screen cracked. Ouch!
But just when you thought that you've seen it all, the HTC Desire EYE was given the ultimate torture test. A elephant (named Mr. Elephant if you read the subtitles), put his foot down right on the back of the Desire EYE. First, a front leg stomps on the device, followed by a back leg. How did the phone make out? It was still able to snap a selfie, and outside of a few dead pixels and the cracked screen from the previous drop, it apparently was working fine. Of course, it did help that the elephant was walking on a muddy surface instead of asphalt or concrete.
Click on the video below and you can check out this HTC Desire EYE drop test that starts out like any other drop test, but ends up with an unusual twist.

This test is pretty stupid! Because the ground is sandy and elephants feet are soft so the feet and sand absorbs the impact! So this test is stupid!

Not only this, but the pressure per square mm is diminished because of the big radius of its foot. The force is spread out over the entire surface. This would be safer than Niki Minaj in high heels walking over it.
