    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.
