Apple iPhone 5 survives three separate drop tests

If you picked up an Apple iPhone 5 today, chances are you’ve been babying it because it’s brand new and iPhones are typically rather fragile.

Luckily, it turns out that the new iPhone 5 is the first iPhone that can actually take a hit: Android Authority has taken initiative and found out just how durable Apple’s new – and controversial – construction and design are. Spoiler: it’s very durable. So durable, in fact, that it even outlived a Samsung Galaxy S III.

The video is up above, but regardless of your thoughts on the new iPhone 5, you have to admit that the fact it can outlive a Galaxy S III in terms of drop tests is pretty neat.
