Lumia 930 survives the impact after being dropped on the highway at 100 Km/h (62 miles per hour)
It is always quite amusing to view drop tests on YouTube and see how some phones respond when they are violently thrown on the ground in slow motion; however, it’s a lot more hurtful to do that with your very own personal phone and that too on your own.
This is what happened to Reddit user, Siebensohn who had without knowledge dropped his phone on the highway even without knowing it at 100 km/h. In America, that would be about 62 miles per hour.
In case, if you are thinking how did it happen, it seems like it’s actually simple to drop your phone on the highway when driving with such a high speed than one might be wondering.
As he mentions in his post, he was riding his motorcycle back home and the phone most likely slid out of the pocket and fell down on the emergency lane.
Let see what happened next in fast forward. The owner finds the Phone, device found about 6 km from the house, quick search in the area, nothing, another search the next day, phone found on the emergency lane.
The still lucky Lumia 930 owner writes “I pull over into the emergency lane and walk back to find my phone laying face down on the asphalt. Its roughed up pretty bad and the back has half popped off, but miraculously the screen is still intact.”
It was no surprise that the screen was found intact. As the Lumia 930 comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, it can remain unaffected by pretty intense shocks. However, a drop on the highway at 100 km/h is something beyond intense.
Well, the best thing about the phone is not that the owner actually found his phone, but that the phone was found in a working condition. In addition, it still had some 18 percent of battery left, as he explains.
It goes without saying that this story falls in the “do not try this at home.” However, if you do try this at home, do not forget to shoot the entire thing, so that everyone else can view it when it’s all over.
