First iPhone 5S and 5C Drop Test: Only One of Them Shatters

By Leslie Horn on at

Clad in a plastic back, the iPhone 5C might be cheaper, but is it more durable than the 5S? Obviously, the only way to find out is by dropping the new phones.

Android Authority tested the two devices by dropping them from chest level on their backs, sides, and fronts. In the end, no surprise hereā€”the cheaper phone ended up being less sturdy and its face shattered. On the other hand, with its aluminium housing, the 5S looks like it can take a little more abuse. Plus, any excuse for a little destruction is fine with us. [Android Authority]
