Video Shows How iPhone 11 Beats Iconic Nokia 3310 In Drop Test


We have all heard and laughed at memes regarding the historic Nokia 3310 and how it is immortal out of all the smartphones we have seen so far. However, the smartphone could lose its title as hinted at by a new video, which involves the drop test of the Nokia 3310, the iPhone 11 Pro Max, and the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

iPhone 11 Pro Max Drop Test

As per a new video posted by the YouTube channel TechRax, a drop test was performed on the Nokia 3310, the most recent iPhone 11 Pro Max, and the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

The YouTuber dropped all three phones from a height of 20 stories, down a spiral staircase.

The first contestant was the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which when dropped down the staircase was able to survive it and worked fine even after the fall. However, the device couldn’t help but wear out and had cracks all over it.

Then came Samsung’s foldable smartphone — the Galaxy Fold — which also failed to operate and displayed a blank white screen.

Here’s the video as proof:

Lastly, the Nokia 3310 was tested for durability and surprisingly, it too succumbed to the fall. The device was split into various components, with a cracked back cover and broken display.

In addition to this, the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the Galaxy Fold took a freefall together and yet again, the former won.

iPhone 11 Pro Max Really Durable?

The drop test performed saw the iPhone 11 Pro Max as the ultimate winner out of the three contenders.

While you might be wondering how a fragile phone like an iPhone was able to withstand the drop test, you should know that all drop conditions are not the same and basic physics comes into play.

Apple itself claimed that the iPhone 11 is one of the most durable smartphones they’ve ever made. The iPhone 11 Pro Max features an IP 68 rating and can survive in 4 m deep water for 30 minutes.

Apple has also gone far and beyond to use recycled tin in the manufacturing of their iPhones, thus doing their part in saving the environment.

People’s Reaction

People provided the funniest reactions to the video, starting a new meme game in the comments section in the memory of the Nokia 3310. Here are the ones that made me fall (almost) from the chair:
