In previous years the trend to test the durability of a device was to conduct a “drop test.” This literally involved dropping whatever device you’re reviewing and consciously dropping it from about 6 feet, then witnessing the repercussions. We’ve conducted a few of these, but now the latest idea is to take a gorgeous smartphone and use it as a hammer. A couple weeks back the Nokia Lumia 900 fell victim, now it’s the unibody designed HTC One X. The quality of the video is not the best, either is my Russian, but the One X certainly takes a beating. Check out the video below of the One X and its Gorilla Glass display getting nailed.
