iPhone 3G – The drop test

Wasn’t something I was intending to do but I have now dropped my 3G iPhone and it still works! Yay.

Dropped it from the height of around 1 metre whilst *slightly ;)* drunk.

To be honest I was surprised that the screen didn’t smash; all it has done is made a couple of marks on the bottom where it landed on the pavement. Not a big deal, by any means.

My best attempt at photographing the damage is shown to the right ->

Just out of interest though, I looked to see how much a new back would be; without spending too much time on it, the cheapest I found was £40 (about $80) which I think is a bloody rip off!

Also, some of the components are housed inside the back part so ultimately, it really isn’t worth the bother.

My iPhone lives to fight another day!

    Lucky you..I dropped my iPhone 3G twice and both times the screen went white out on me.First repair cost $200 to fix the connection and second another $180 to change the LCD screen. And the first was dropped from about a 1m table and second was flung out of my bag when i yanked something else out and it got caught. =( hence i’ve given up on using the iphone since i’m a serial phone dropper and the repair will one day cost me more than the phone itself…
