Will Dudley Do-Right save the Apple iPhone 5s from an oncoming train?

In the first test, a black Apple iPhone 5s was strapped to the track as though it were a damsel in distress, waiting for Dudley Do-Right to come along and save her. But there was no saving the iPhone. As a GoPro camera recorded the impact, the microSIM card survived while the rest of the phone went to smartphone heaven. In the second test, a white Apple iPhone 5s met the same fate. Actually, the white handset had it worse, as the phone and its micro SIM card, were pulverized by the rushing train.
So what exactly has this test proved? After all, no handset would be able to survive being run over by a train. At this stage, most smartphone users would be happy if their device were merely waterproof.

That is pretty awesome though. It didn't seem to deform too much due to its aluminium body. It could've derailed it though!~

Says "Iphone is going to be crushed by train", shows a picture of a whore on the article. Classy, unintentional irony lol.
