People have been performing experiments and tests on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus ever since they first launched. This guy took it to the next level.
Dropping an iPhone 7 Plus off The Burj Khalifa is no game but this vlogger seems to take it as that. Chances are it was his intentions of gaining publicity but it could be some sort of mental disorder. It could be a zest to try something new and incredibly stupid. That is what many people consider a ‘trend’ now-a-days.
The video was uploaded by the YouTube channel TechRax and has been viewed over 2.4 million times since it was posted on September 28th, 2016. People drilling their new iPhones was one thing, deliberately dropping it off a building is another. He obviously knew the consequences and despite that, he extended his hand from the bar and dropped his new £719 iPhone 7 Plus.
After dropping the phone, the vlogger opens up his iCould and tries to track it down. However, the viewers were well aware that nothing can bring the phone back to its original state. Smartphones, especially iPhones, are mostly fragile. They can sometimes break if you drop them off the couch. And now, with the 3.5 mm headphone jack gone, your earphones’ wire cannot save your iPhone as it did before. Thinking about this, throwing an iPhone off the Burj Khalifa seems completely next level.
The phone shattered (probably) and the vlogger began panicking. Why would you panic when you knew that was going to happen? What did you actually expect? It was not some kind of iPhone gorilla glass the screen was made of. The result was quite easily obvious.
People were furious and the comments section was proof enough for that. Complaining that the iPhone could have landed on someone’s head or could have injured someone badly, calling the vlogger a “retard”.
