Apple iPhone Scratch Test and Drop Test

PC World’s  Eric Butterfield gives the Apple iPhone a hard-use daily activity test.

The Apple iPhone is slender and could easily be dropped or ejected out of a user’s hand after a collision with another person in a crowd. PC WORLD conducts a test to see how well the Apple iPhone holds up to scratches on its screen or drops to the floor or ground.

The following tests all show good results:
Apple iPhone Screen Scratch Risk Test: Shake in a plastic bag with keys.
Apple iPhone Screen Scratch Risk Test: Shake in a plastic bag with pressure and keys.
Apple iPhone Screen Scratch Risk Test: Direct key pressure across the screen (like a vandal ‘keying’ a car’s paint job).
Apple iPhone Fracture and Failure Risk Test: Drop to a carpeted floor (at least 5 feet).
Apple iPhone Fracture and Failure Risk Test: Drop to a tile floor (at least 5 feet).
Apple iPhone Fracture and Failure Risk Test: Drop to cement ground (at least 5 feet).
