Apple iPhone 6's Rumored Sapphire Display Survives Drop, Hammer and Fire Tests
Just three days ago, the rumored sapphire display of the Apple iPhone 6 survived the stress tests of YouTuber Marques Brownlee and emerged unscathed. This time, a Chinese tester put the display panel through tougher ones that included some bending, twisting and dropping.
The testing began with some scratching by a coin, a key, a pen knife and a hammer, which the display panel survived with no scratches or cracks. The Chinese tester then decided to put it through more stressful tests such as hammering a nail on the display panel, dropping it from chest level, bending it and lighting a flame beneath it. Surprisingly, the display panel showed no signs of damages.
The final test involved running the display panel over with a vehicle. The sheer pressure finally shattered the display panel. Nonetheless, it is still more resistant than the conventional glass panels on current mobile devices.
