Ah, those iPhone drops really cost us a fortune, because these are some things that cannot be easily repaired. And with the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, you better be ready to cough up more than what you would have expected, because they now have bigger screens, which means more damage, which means more money to pay when those cracks show up. But there are some moments in life when we see our pride and joy just slipping out of our hands, and the next moment we see it kissing the sidewalk. Along with those cracks and crashes, we too crack up and crash up.
During the drop test, we noticed that the smaller the size of the iPhone, the more damage it can take up. When both the iPhones were dropped on the back, they both took minimal damages with some scratches and mark here and here. But when they were dropped on the side, the iPhone 6 Plus took it on its forehead, while the iPhone 6 survived with some scuffs and marks. It clearly showed that bigger is not always better.
When both the phones were dropped face first, the screens shattered pretty violently on both the devices. The screens were literally coming out of the body. But the good thing about Apple is that, if your screen is slightly shattered, it still works, and we noticed that same thing when the screens were coming out. There was no software damage.
To conclude, I would say that both of these devices can survive small and soft drops, but when it becomes hard, it breaks them. Below is the drop test video. Just don’t cry when the screen shatters.
And in case you didn’t already knew, you can now charge your iPhone with a keychain and AA size batteries.
