    The now venerable yet still impressive Motorola Droid X may be tougher than most people imagine. In fact, it supposedly can even survive a trial by fire. According to one owner, that's exactly what his did, literally. Supposedly, a proud owner of a Droid X had his device fall into a campfire, and it lived to tell the tale. In fact, it is still almost completely functional. Here's a quote with some details,

    Even though it was only two years ago, I guess they don't make 'em like they used to...

    Noice story... My trusty ole LG Ally is still kickin' after being submerged in a waterfall, pool of mud (which got all inside the headphone jack, yet that too still works perfect), and soaked other numerous times. The little fella never dies. Never tried open flame though, don't plan to either. :biggrin:

    Well I never tried to "roast" my DX but it did survive quite a few falls. Tough phone for sure!

    Well, it's sort of hard to tell if they "make 'em like they used to" - as this is the first time i've heard of a phone being functional after being dropped in a fire. Note, I am NOT going to drop my Bionic into a fire to see if it survives *LOL*

    Y'know, thinking about this some more and given the total lack of evidence (no pics or video of the thing actually being used) I am going to call BS on this one. Anyone can take a pic of a melted phone and CLAIM it still works. In this case, SHOW ME.
