While I would never subject my new iPhone 8 Plus to extreme torture, luckily there are those among us that are more than happy to attempt to destroy their new handsets.
YouTuber PhoneBuff has put his iPhone 8 Plus to an extensive drop test, alongside a Galaxy Note 8. PhoneBuff puts the new handset through a series of drop tests. starting with a drop onto its back. The glass shatters on impact, but keeps working.
The devices are then put through another round of torture, which consists of dropping them directly onto a steel pallet up to 10 times. The iPhone doesn’t hold up quite as well, beginning to come apart as of round 5.
Just for fun, we’ve also included a waterproofing test. Both device stand up rather well to this bit of pain.
