4. HTC One M8 Scratch & Hammer Test
The HTC One (M8) has won tons of critical acclaim. That being said, it’s pretty rare that a smartphone can totally stand up to knives and a hammer. If the phone can survive this, chances are it will do okay when you drop it, too.
5. Sony Xperia Z2 Drop Test
Sony’s Xperia line is actually pretty rugged. That being said, any smartphone can crack or shatter under the right drop conditions. Want to see how the Sony Xperia Z2 did in the drop test? Check out the video above.
