Most of us are very careful with our smartphones because we know one drop could spell the end for our devices. I use an iPhone and the screen on the device is particularly fragile. I have never broken mine, but I know someone who has broken the screen twice dropping the thing.

A company called Sonim has a line of phones, including its first 3G offering called the Sonim XP2 Spirit, that are billed as almost unbreakable. At MWC, the company let tech writers put the device through a torture test.

The guys were given a tool belt with blocks of wood, sand paper, a Leatherman tool, and safety goggles. The picture you see attached to this story is a tech geek hammering a nail into a block of wood using the phone. The video is impressive and the phone survived the torture. Check out the video below to see for yourself.
