    I know that this is not an Iphone forum, but I am certain that many of you Android fanatics would love to see a few cryphones get smashed. PhoneBuff flew all the way to Australia so that he could be one of the first to get his hands on each of these devices. What did he do with said devices after flying halfway across the globe, and then camping outside in line? He decided to drop them.

    Marques Brownlee reported earlier this year that the Iphone 6 should be coming with sapphire glass. He some what tested the durability with some keys, and a knife and whatever the screen was it wouldn't scratch. He then proceeded to bend the glass with his foot, it would not shatter. Being that he only had the glass and it wasn't attached to a device he couldn't complete a proper drop test. The video above serves as the first ever real drop test for both the Iphone 6 and Iphone 6 plus. How durable is it really.

    Thought I read on a few sites that the iPhone 6's didn't actually release with sapphire glass. Is that correct?

    Unless Apple added a layer to the sapphire glass then it is not less breakable than Gorilla Glass. It would just be more scratch resistant.

    Sold a guy the 6 on Friday, came back yesterday with a broken screen. He had it in his shirt pocket and bent over. It fell out and shattered the lower left corner and spiderwebbed up. Thankfully he purchased Apple Care+

    That's the thing about Gorilla Glass. It's as strong as steel unless you tap it in the wrong spot then it's as fragile as Micah(sp?)

    It does look like they removed the 'unbreakable screen' from their website.

    Also, the camera is raised from the back. I do not like that. That little lens is gonna get scratched to hell.

    Sure does look like an HTC M8.

    The lens (and the home button) are protected by sapphire.
