my iphone survived epic 12 foot fall onto concrete!
I’ve got an expensive case and a screen protector, I bought this case because it said it was tested for an 8 foot fall

I had it in my hand at the top of the stairs and it slipped and I fumbled it like a football and inadvertently tossed it over the edge. It fell 12 feet and landed on concrete next to the pool. I ran down and picked it up and hot the home button and it’s working perfectly. Unbelievable!

not even a crack in the glass

iphone 8 plus, just bought it in November

it must have landed flat and perfectly, like winning the lottery!
Forgive your enemies, it messes with their heads.

Re: my iphone survived epic 12 foot fall onto concrete!
I busted my Samsung G7 in a similar way, but it only fell about 2 fucking feet, cracked the screen like a busted wind shield :(

But ii did not have a case or screen protector, stupid cunt right? Still works ok though.

Anyway, the thieving bastards wanted £120 to fix it, because the fone is the fucking screen with such a model.

So, I bought a case & screen protector (which was delivered cracked, from Amazon!) and have used it evar since, busted it about a year ago now, I use it to fly my drone, too.

Not gonna but another until it works not anymoar ...

Try it from 50 and challenge as many friends as you can to do the same. Perhaps tidepodding culture can save us all.

I dropped mine(it's a work phone, I have personal standards) off the top of an overhead crane onto a concrete factory floor. It somehow survived. The best part was me looking over the catwalk and seeing a lineworker walk over and pick it up. She looked doubtful about it's prospects. Or maybe just pissed I was dropping things in their general direction.

Re: my iphone survived epic 12 foot fall onto concrete!
I fell 12 feet, landing on my side and only fractured my fibula on the right leg.
It was in St Sebastien in Spain, after an argument with a so-called friend. We were sleeping on the rocky mount there, with the statue of Jesus at the top, I think it was Jesus, but it might be John Lennon - not sure.

We had had an argument about homosexuality and then split up- he going to his bush to sleep under and me to mine. In the faltering light I got top to toe covered in human faeces, as in France and Spain, some people think it is okay to shit in such places that young hitchhikers choose to sleep for the night.
There was a little fountain that I remembered was nearby so went to wash it all off, then saw my ex-friend sitting on some steps nearby and then decided for no reason to jump over a wall - the 12 foot drop. I was lucky as I missed a sticking up broken off tree stem that would have gone right through me.

Waking from the concussion the next morning, I then had to hitchhike all the way home to Britain limping in great pain, with no belongings and covered in shit which took three days.

I don't know why people don't enjoy life more and instead share stories about their not-broken telephones - amazing!

Just give it another year and apple will slow it to a crawl forcing you to buy a new one. Such integrity.

Re: my iphone survived epic 12 foot fall onto concrete!
That’s nothing. My dad was on his motorcycle and dropped his flip phone and saw it shatter in pieces. Then he pulled over to pick it up and a lady drove over it with her car tire smashing it more. He brought it home and put it back together and not on crack in the screen. Lol Flip phones for life
