iPhone 6 Plus meets liquid nitrogen in torture test

iPhone 6 Plus meets liquid nitrogen in torture test
Sometimes, obliterating electronic gadgets with explosives, shots from a sniper rifle, or other high-powered weaponry just isn’t enough.

Sometimes, you need to literally shatter your intended target with a sledgehammer, but not before you dip it in a small tub of liquid nitrogen. In this case, the newly released iPhone 6 Plus gets a rather chilling introduction just hours after it was purchased.  Of course, in true RatedRR fashion, all the action was captured in high-quality slow-motion video.

For those that do not know, liquid nitrogen boils at negative-321 degrees Fahrenheit (-196 centigrade). It is used in all sorts of practical applications, and it also serves as a cryogenic fluid, meaning it can instantly freeze living tissue. It is sometimes used in a method of removing cancerous tissue.

It is also used in rapid fire-extinguishing systems, preservation of reproductive cells, shrink welding, cooling, and superconductor applications.

The team at RatedRR wasted no time in likely being the first to introduce a new series of torture tests for the iPhone 6 Plus. If using liquid nitrogen is the first test, we cannot wait to see the rest. As you might expect, the end result was shattering.

wether he makes money from it or not, its still not going to cut the 6000€ he put into it since one iP6 costs arount 1000€.

He gets paid via ads and paid sponsorships so it's just for monetary purposes. Adds entertainment value to a "tech review".

Dude, do you even know RatedRR ????? They arent real tests, they just like to destroy phones for fun and money. Why would they make a 50cal vs iPhone video? Which moron would click on it and think ah yiss I wanna see how the iPhone survives this. But i understand your anger because they called it 'test', should be iPhone 6 vs hammer

This is just stupid, why not just do the famous drop test instead of this kind of useless s**t? That's why I don't subscribe to this kind of channel. RatedMoron.

I work with liquid nitrogen. This is just theatrics, and provides no useful information. It is a stunt and why am I not surprised that it is applied to an iPhone? What rubbish, and a waste of good liquid nitrogen. As for the text - why not include the one thing where non-scientists might see liquid nitrogen used legitimately and very commonly? Dermatologists use it for warts as well as skin cancers. And for fire suppression, I'm not at all sure that it is a real use. If it is, it is being used in a very small niche application.

This phone was built in an Apple concentration camp so this guy could smash the phone the moment he got it.

Liquid nitrogen, really? What's with these absurd experiments these people do with these products.

iPhone or not. I don't get this test. It's pretty useless. These guys must be rich to waste phones.

Pointless test, tbh. Stick with drop test. My money is on S5, lulz.

Everyone seems to be hating how less than useful this video is. When using liquid nitrogen to completely destroy something the only point is to completely destroy the phone. People like things going smash! (And boom!). While you may not be subscribing to it, there are many that are. =) Slo-mo is hot right now. =)

this guy doesn't seem to be 'mechanically inclined'. the reason the back held up so well is because the build sucks on the new iphones. the screen popped out, just like his blender vid... and every drop test i have seen so far. thus the screen took the brunt of the sledge.
