The Internet is filled with sadists. Seems like unboxings, and first-look/hands-on videos just aren’t doing it for some tech fans; thus the rise of drop-tests, blender-tests and .50 caliber rifle shots.
Where as I can argue the virtues of a drop test, especially if you are as clumsy as me, I just can not justify shooting up a brand new phone, regardless of OS or any manufacturer bias on my part. This “test” makes moot any argument for “build quality.”
Want to take a guess what happens when you shoot a phone with a .50 caliber rifle? Not pretty.
