Ever since the iPhone 5 came out, folks have known that the bezel around the screen is prone to scuffing/scratching and even getting dings and dents.
But my experience tonight has left me rather impressed... Totally stupid, I put my iPhone 5S on my trunk lid, and went around to air up my tires. I was in a rush, had to run inside for something, and figured Id grab the phone when I got back to the car... Yes, I forgot to grab the phone. A few miles away, I realized this, after stopping and searching my car. Idiot me.
So I drove back home, my wife was outside looking around and calling it. In the street, near my home, I saw it light up as I was driving by looking for it. Yes, operational.
Got out of the car to retrieve it. Two cars were coming at me. Four tires went over the phone, yes, at least two cars, quite possibly many more in the time between when it fell from my car to when I got back to it and found it, had driven over it.
The screen is still 100% in tact. Perfect. The fingerprint sensor works. The phone charges, calls, does data, etc. The rear is completely dented in and the rear camera is busted.
It had fallen on its back side onto a concrete roadway. As mentioned, at least two cars drove over top of it; I saw it with my own eyes.
I don't have access to a good camera right now, but it still works. Im amazed...
Not a quality photo, but you get the point...
