The phone goes through a bow and arrow test and gives in to this ultimate experiment of durability

The upcoming iPhone 6 has been through a couple of quality tests in the past few weeks. Only a few days earlier we saw how YouTuber Marques Brownlee got his hands on the phone’s sapphire glass panel and subjected it to a bunch of tests for testing the durability of the phone’s screen. The tests included knives, keys, and even a flexibility test. Though these cant be categorized as proper scientific quality tests, the results that turned out as a consequence were all very impressive. However it appears that the satisfaction appetite of some people still hasn’t been met and there is some more action for the sapphire glass panel of the iPhone 6.

The YouTubers Unbox Therapy,Marques Brownlee, Austin Evans, and Jonathan Morrison (TLD) have stepped up the tests and this time they have decided to combine the power of sandpaper, a bow and arrow, and Joe Rogan. Like most of us would have already thought after hearing about the bow and arrows, the glass panel couldn’t make it through these tests. It is quite obvious; when you are going to shoot things with bows and pointy arrows, things are going to get messier.

The testing goes on in a series of videos where the first video describes why exactly the front panel was able to live it through the keys and knifes testing. That is because these tools are simply not sharp enough to damage the sapphire glass which is a pretty strong platform. Brownlee has to make use of a sandpaper to actually scratch the screen. The second video shows the bow and arrow test Joe Rogan puts his archery skills to some use. We are all thinking that this is the ultimate test for the sapphire glass panel and we must say we are not disappointed with the results because nobody was expecting a phone’s panel to live through the impact of a bow and arrow.
