  1. I'm sorry, but those were some extreme tests. The fact a 6 foot drop didn't crack the screen and only had some minor scuffs I'd call the phone a drop test success. If you're​ going to to throw your phone down a flight of stairs not once but twice you can't think a phone will survive that and it actually did once. Good job essential. CNET looks like the failures here. I'll be looking forward to seeing a more official drop test.
