First iPhone 5 Drop Tests: Very Sturdy... But It Still Shatters

You might be longing to fondle your new iPhone 5 lovingly, but there are people out there who just want to break them — as a public service, of course. The first iPhone 5 drop tests are starting to come in, and as painful as they may be to watch, the new iPhone holds up remarkably well against punishment, notably better than its predecessor.

In fact, both tests show that you basically have to actively try to break your phone to cause any serious damage. It also, for what it's worth, holds up much better than the Galaxy S III (below). That's no excuse to start throwing it around, but you can rest assured that this year's model isn't made of glass, literally or figuratively. [iFixYouri, Android Authority]
