iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus drop test: Watch These Guys Shutter iPhones for Science

The new iPhones that were launched lastweek have everything most people have ever wanted, bigger screens and faster processors etc.., but there’s still one question remaining: how do Apple’s devices stand up to being dropped?

Although the first drop test might have been performed accidentally by an excited fan, YouTube reviewers PhoneBuff have done their best to carry out more exacting trials – dropping both new devices on their backs, sides and fronts.

The results? Well, it’s no scientific inquiry, but it seems that the new iPhones are a shade less durable than previous models, holding up well to being dropped onto their backs (the easiest test) but with the 6 Plus shattering after taking a tumble onto its side.
