iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus: Ultimate Durability Test [Video]





According to the video that has been posted to YouTube by SquareTrade, the recently-released iPhone SE is less durable than the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The experts have recently performed a series of tests including placing the aforementioned devices into the water, dropping them from height and bending with a special machine. The results of these extensive testing procedures revealed that the 4-inch smartphone is the least durable among those tested.

It should be noted that the results of the iPhone SE are not surprising at all, especially if to keep in mind that the device has a design nearly identical to that of the iPhone 5s released back in 2013.

Below you can take a look at the video showing the testing process.
