iphone 6 and 6 plus drop test aa (10 of 27)

It’s that time of year again, folks. And no – we’re not sorry.

The iPhone is a formidable device. It represents the bulk of Apple’s revenue, and it’s arguably the most iconic and widely recognized smartphone in the world.

With that said, you know that Apple has spent billions of dollars to put its very best effort forward, and has brought us two different sizes this time around.

Josh, Derek and I all went to Hong Kong to get them for the explicit purpose of being able to provide you a closer look at the device itself, to compare it to leading flagships of the day, and to drop it! 

Watch on to see how it fares!

There you have it folks. The new iPhones passed our drop test with flying colors. Nobody can deny that Apple created another sturdy device with the latest generation of the iPhone, even if the rumored sapphire screen didn’t pan out. Regardless, the glass on the front of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is extremely solid, as the two frontal drops have proven.

We love Android, but we’re technology fans first and foremost. So we won’t deny it – we’re impressed with Apple’s new devices. With larger screens, an improved OS, and — apparently — extreme resilience, how will the best of Android compare against iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus? That’s exactly what we’ll show you over the next hours and days, as we put all the top devices on the market through our trademark comparisons.

Stay tuned for more!
