  • So you know what's better than one drop test?

  • Two drop tests.

  • I have two more brand new iPhone 8's, which Apple claimed to have the most durable smartphone

  • glass ever.

  • But it's important to remember that even though it might be durable glass, it's still glass.

  • And the unfortunate part about the iPhone glass is that it's incredibly expensive to

  • replace.

  • Even if you have AppleCare, the back glass replacement is $99.

  • And after your two year AppleCare is up, or you don't get AppleCare at all, it's $349.

  • That's expensive for a back glass panel.

  • With Samsung phones you can usually replace that panel for about $20 bucksso there's

  • a big difference.

  • Today's drop test is going to be sponsored by the RhinoShield Mod Case.

  • I'll be dropping one of the phones, the silver one, completely naked.

  • And the other one, the black phone, is going to have the Rhino Shield Mod Case installed

  • on it.

  • This says it's a super tough modular case that changes according to your needs.

  • So we'll put that tough part to the test.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • So both of these phones are brand new and 100% functional.

  • And the case that the black one is going to be wearing is from RhinoShield.

  • On the box it says it's impact resistant to 11 feet, but I've actually dropped a RhinoShield

  • case from over 100 feet and had the phone survive.

  • So I'm pretty sure this phone's going to be alright.

  • Inside the box we have the bumper shield, and as part of the mod part of the casing,

  • we have a back.

  • So you can have the case operate in one of two ways: one is just the bumper shield, or

  • have the back installed as well.

  • Since both the front and back of the phone are made from glass, I am going to install

  • the back cover, just so I can avoid paying that $350 replacement fee.

  • If I wanted to install just the bumper though, I would just slip it into the case like so.

  • It would have a raised rubber lip around the front and the back to protect it from impacts,

  • even keeping the camera lens below that surface.

  • The case fits pretty snug all the way around the phone, but does leave us enough room for

  • the ports around the speaker, the microphone and that charging port.

  • I'm sure if there was a headphone jack there would be room for that as well.

  • And the buttons still have a clicky feel to them.

  • Getting the back glass protecting panel into the phone is easy enough.

  • Just pulled out that rubber insert and drop the phone into the case.

  • Not too bad.

  • If you're not a fan of the clear back, they do have some designer versions, but I'm going

  • to leave mine clear because we are dropping this phone and I want to see if the back panel

  • is protected by the case.

  • The last cool thing is that this case actually comes with lens mounts so you can increase

  • the power of your camera with additional lenses.

  • I'll be testing these out in a second, but first, let's drop these things.

  • Just like last time, I will have two phones recording in slow motion.

  • Right now we have the Google Pixel recording on this side, and then we have the clear Galaxy

  • Note 8 recording on this side.

  • The RhinoShield Mod case does come in different colors.

  • I will have all of these linked down in the video description if you want to check them

  • out.

  • The nice thing about all the different colors of the RhinoShield Mod case is that they don't

  • absorb stains, like from your pocket or bluejeans, which is a little bit more than the Pixel

  • can say.

  • So I think one of the most common times that I drop my personal cell phone is when I leave

  • it on my lap and get out of my car.

  • [Music]

  • I'll leave that there for a second, and try it with the RhinoShield Mod case.

  • [Music]

  • No damage done to the back of the unprotected phone, back or front.

  • Both seem to be working just fine.

  • And no damage appears to have happened to the RhinoShield either.

  • We'll try it one more time for good measure.

  • Getting out of the car with the unprotected case.

  • [Dramatic Music]

  • And getting out of the car with the protected case.

  • [Dramatic Music]

  • Looks like we have one giant crack all the way through the back of the phone, starting

  • up here by the antenna line.

  • Camera lens is still fine, but now we owe Apple $349 to replace this.

  • Taking off the case of the RhinoShield just to double check, and everything is fine.

  • Front of the phone is also undamaged.

  • Let's keep going.

  • And for the record, that is about a 3 foot drop from the edge of my seat all the way

  • to the ground.

  • And the unprotected iPhone is shattered.

  • So now we'll drop the phones from about waist high, which is the second most common drop,

  • just pulling it out of your pocket and letting it go.

  • [Dramatic Music]

  • Looks like the screen of the phone is totally fine and the back panel still has that same

  • crack, but we're still good.

  • And the RhinoShield is good on the front and good on the back.

  • We'll do another waist-high drop for good measure.

  • This is drop number 4.

  • [Dramatic Music]

  • Front of the phone is still good.

  • Back of the phone is the exact same.

  • Front of the phone is good, and the back of the phone is still not cracked.

  • Now we'll be going about chest high.

  • This is drop number 5.

  • [Dramatic Music]

  • Take a look at the damage.

  • It looks like we have a couple more cracks along that side right there.

  • On the front of the screen...ah, now we have damage on the front as well.

  • We got a nick right there on the corner, as well as a crack in the top.

  • The RhinoShield case...we are looking totally good on the front.

  • And if we pop the case out...it's a pretty tight fitting case, the back panel is still

  • fine.

  • So we owe Apple nothing to fix this phone so far.

  • The unprotected phone now has screen and back panel replacements, and with Apple's in-house

  • repair costs, it might be cheaper to buy a new phone at this point.

  • Alright, now we'll be doing head high, as if it slips from your hand as you're talking

  • on the phone.

  • [Dramatic Music]

  • Taking a look at the silver phone...same cracks as before, nothing new yet.

  • And we have a new spiderweb in the corner of the screen.

  • Pretty safe to say that this phone wouldn't survive any kind of drop over 3 feet.

  • Now we have the 11 foot protected phone, and the screen is still fine and the back panel

  • is still good underneath that plastic.

  • So I'm about 6 feet tall.

  • I'm going to raise my hand above my head and drop it from there just for kicks and giggles

  • and see what happens to both phones.

  • This is about an 8 foot drop, give or take.

  • [Dramatic Music]

  • Aw man.

  • And it is pretty easy to tell that the iPhone 8 did not survive that at all, even the camera

  • lens is completely shattered on that one.

  • We are doing this drop test on asphalt to imitate a parking lot, you know, whether you're

  • in your car and getting out...dropping it as you're getting groceries.

  • Both the screen and the back are completely obliterated.

  • Taking a look at the RhinoShield case...no damage on the front.

  • We'll pop it off and take a look at the back.

  • And the back panel of the phone is completely fine.

  • So now after having dropped 4 different phones in 2 different drop tests, I think it's pretty

  • safe to say that it doesn't matter what Apple says about their most durable glass ever,

  • glass is glass and it's going to break if it's dropped.

  • It's very unfortunate about their super high repair

  • coststhat I'm not a fan of.

  • Personally, I'll be trying to find a way to fix it cheaper than what they're charging

  • as always, but until then, a case is a very good idea.

  • And the one we used today, the RhinoShield mod case, holds up pretty darn well.

  • Like I mentioned before, the RhinoShield case does come with external lenses.

  • We'll try out the macro lens on the damage done to the iPhone 8.

  • And this is the footage done with one of the macro lenses attached to the phone.

  • If we were to unscrew that lens, the footage wouldn't be quite as close up.

  • I'll also try out this wide-angle lens.

  • Super big thanks to RhinoShield for sponsoring this video by the way.

  • This drop test would not be possible without them.

  • Just like a real camera lens.

  • That thing is beastly.

  • So here's some video with that wide-angle lens in place.

  • It's got quite a big field of view with not a whole lot of fish-eye effect.

  • It's letting us capture quite a bit into the image.

  • I'm going to unscrew the lens for kicks and giggles...and we are much closer up.

  • I'll be linking all of those cases and lenses in the video description of this video.

  • So head down there if you need protection for any of your phones.

  • Once again, thank you so much for watching.

  • I don't always delight in the abuse of iPhones, but sometimes it's necessary.

  • Thanks a ton for watching and I'll see you around.

So you know what's better than one drop test?
