With every major gadget released, you can trust there will be folks that will perform a drop test on these shiny new electronics. With the popularity of these drop tests, it is obvious that there is an audience for this sort of unscientific test. I guess there is something in all of us that enjoys the sight of beautiful, expensive electronics hitting the pavement, just as long as it doesn't happen to us. With the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c hitting the stores, as expected, a new drop test surfaces.
In the past, drop tests will usually pit the latest iPhone with the previous iteration or with another flagship device from a different company. Since Apple released two iPhones this time, it only makes sense that the two will be pitted against each other. Watch the iPhone 5s vs. iPhone 5c drop test from Android Authority below.
As you can see, the iPhone 5s managed to pass this drop test with barely a scuffle. The latest flagship iPhone has been dropped on its back, side and front, and by the end, it doesn't look like it has been dropped at all. On the other hand, the same can't be said with the iPhone 5c. When the iPhone 5c was dropped on its back and side, it easily survived with a few nicks and scratches. However, when it was dropped on its face, the screen cracked. Both iPhones are still working fine after the drop test.
As we always say, this iPhone 5s vs. iPhone 5c drop test isn’t the most scientific of tests. Dropping your iPhone isn't something that you can avoid for sure. That's why, it would be best if you invest in a good quality case. Fortunately in the case (pun intended) of the iPhone 5c, you can buy official colorful cases from Apple.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
