We've seen a number of 'drop tests' of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s in the past but one thing that always bothered us is that they always seem to be sponsored by some phone insurance company or screen protector company, thereby making us think there just might be a bit of conflict of interest in the testing process. Just think...if nothing breaks then the viewer isn't going to run out and by that insurance or screen protector right? Well 'everythingapplepro' has done a really stellar drop test comparison video above that pits the older iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus against the newer 6S and 6S Plus. Best of all, he does this test for his own curiosity and not just because a sponsor is paying him. The result we think is the best drop test video for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus we've seen.
Starting out dropping each device from waist height, then head height and finally from 10 feet...in three ways...back, side/edge and face down. Does Apple's new 7000 spec industrial strength aluminum taken from the Apple Watch make a difference in how these new iPhones cope with drops? Do the new 'S' series iPhones come out with less damage than the older models? You'll just have to watch the 13 minute long video above. We think you'll be pleasantly surprised at the results!
