iPhone 6 + sledgehammer + liquid nitrogen = holy cow!



I’ll be the first to admit I don’t really like it when people buy new iPhones just to destroy them on camera. It’s extraordinarily wasteful, not just of money but of the craftsmanship Apple puts into every device.

That said, even I have to admit this iPhone 6 torture test is awesome. Dude took an iPhone 6, froze it with liquid nitrogen, and then disintegrated it with a sledgehammer, like some cryogenic Thor.

Here’s the entire torture test:

This nightmarish stress-test video was filmed by YouTube channel RatedRR, who also performed the inevitable “Will It Blend?” test.

According to the channel owner, four other torture tests are forthcoming. That means he intends on destroying six perfectly good iPhone 6 units before he’s done. That’s extraordinarily wasteful — but I’ve got to admit, if any of them are as good as the sledgehammer video, I’ll tune in.
