We Beat The Crap Out Of A "ShatterProof" iPhone With Hammers, Drills, And Sanders
Click for sound:
Problem is, the glass screens on these devices are highly susceptible to breaks, cracks, and scratches. If you don't have a cracked smartphone screen, you probably know someone who does.
But a product called the "ShatterProof" screen protector by Amzer claims it can keep your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy device "unbreakable." From the Amzer website:
"The protector is scratch resistant, stress resistant, drop resistant and a has special self healing capability with dissipative functioning embodied - it is virtually indestructible making your device unbreakable!"
So, to test the company's claim that the "ShatterProof" is indeed shatterproof, I got several of my co-workers to take a drill, sander, and hammer to a "ShatterProof"-equipped iPhone 5. Admittedly, I didn't think the "ShatterProof" stood a chance against my hammer-wielding co-workers, but the 0.2 millimeter thick piece of plastic proved to be extremely durable.
See how much of a beating the "ShatterProof" screen protector can take in the video above.
