    Oh jeez...here we go...


    That's funny how he implies you have a 'choice' how your phone lands when gravity takes over :)

    I don't know if any phone is capable of consistently surviving a fall from 5 feet feet right on it's screen.

    In this video the iPhone is dropped on it's screen from waist high and shatters:

    I've never understood why people do drop tests vs an iPhone....its pretty well known that it is the most fragile phone so it doesnt prove much.

    I 've seen HTC, Samsung phones with cracked screens and Gorilla Glass. I've seen Droid 1 and X's with cracked Gorilla Glass. This is nothing new...lol

    Imagine that... glass does break! :biggrin:

    Not until we go the route of star trek and make transparent aluminum (queue Star Trek IV)... will we have shatter proof screens!

    aw the razr isn't bulletproof lol.. for everyone making a big deal about Kevlar this and that it scratches the corners and cracks the screen like any phone... now lets see him drop it in a bucket of water and be surprised when it doesn't work

    ps I like how his waist height is between his belly button and chest lol

    Kevlar was only the rubberized back, not the other parts.

    To be honest, I got a feeling Moto was using something similar on the Droid X1. You can scratch the battery cover, but wipe it and it goes away.

    from waist height he messes up all the corners of the back... being the most common drop its not any better then any phone with drops... it was a fun gimmick till people got it in their hands

    im not a big fan of the one whole plastic back (such a pain to remove) on the bionic but on the other hand if I crack it or chip it I can always replace it for 2 bucks

    The rubberized back isnt par of the corners. Its a section of the back of the phone.

    Splash guard? A wet screen from rain, DX1 needed a wiped screen and battery pull to work right again. RAZR didnt with a wet screen from me washing dishes. Thats enough to say it works as advertized to me...lol.

    The phone phone is waterproofed including the inside... get yer facts right.

    Also these drop tests are stupid. They all drop them from high up on hard cement. Of course nothing will take that.

    we'd love to see facts.... take it swimming with you... im sure we'd enjoy the video..... water resistant/repellent maybe ... water proof? highly unlikely

    I think the drop tests are very helpful unless u live in the woods or a farm... im always on concrete outdoors and a waist high test is exactly where I'd drop it from if I was to fumble it.... even getting out of the car.. it happens... but some drops are far more vicious than just a straight drop from waist height.

    My phones always land on the corners. He should have done a corner drop instead.

    You need to get your terminology right. Waterproof devices can sustain prolonged periods of time in/under water. This phone is more like splash resistant because I guarantee if you drop it in a toilet it will be the last time you use it.
    And drop tests are perfect examples of what happens when you talk on your phone.

    Moto advertises water RESISTANT, not water PROOF and that is a big difference.
    Kevlar is five times stronger than the comparable material that would be used and can withstand up to 700 Degrees F. That might be a plus; not sure. But one layer of solid Kevlar is NOT bullet proof.
    I have dropped my X at least a half dozen times on hard floors (at least a dozen times on soft surfaces like sand or dirt), in fact, did it yesterday in Walmart. So far, no cracks. But, it has been enclosed in one of those Seidio cases with the rubber than the plastic skeleton over the rubber. Works great for me. And yes, it appears to always fall on a corner, or that is where the witness mark appears each time I drop it.
