Here’s a little device torture fun for your lunch break. Watch, as Wired’s Battle Damage folks abuse and torture a group of ultra-protective iPhone cases. With the iPhone inside, natch!
The crew abuses an iPhone, encased in four different ultra-protective models: Griffin’s $50 Survivor, LifeProof’s $80 Fre, Lunatik’s $125 Taktik Extreme, and Otterbox’s $50 Defender. They even drop a a 50-pound safe on the encased iPhone while it is standing straight up.
Unless you’re the roadrunner, you’ll likely never have to worry about anyone dropping a safe on you and your iPhone, but it’s nice to know your device will be able to take a hit if something does happen.
