Another gadget, another drop test. The cruel people from Android Authority are at it again, subjecting another lovely device to a torture test. We recently saw the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Sony Xperia Z1 undergo a drop test. The Galaxy Note 3 clacked easily but was still working even with shattered display. The Xperia Z1, on the other hand, turned out to be too tough but it failed to turn on after the first drop.
The Nexus 5 is has a plastic enclosure so you probably have an idea how it will hold up in the drop test. The Nexus 7 (2013) proved to be fragile and naturally did poorly in a drop test. After one drop it failed to turn on and further drops only damaged the tablet further. Will the Nexus 5 perform similarly? Or will it prove to be a tougher device? The Nexus 5 was dropped three times by Android Authority, one for each side, and whether it survives or not is for you to find out in the video below.
