I'd be lying to you guys if I told you I didn't think about doing this test myself. Whenever a hot new phone hits the market, somebody always wants to be first to torture it to death. I've had access to multiple BlackBerry Z10's for a couple weeks now. I did accidentally drop mine once to the floor and survived unscathed. But to truly do a drop test on a Z10? NEVER. That would just be throwing salt in the wound of everybody around the globe that is waiting to get their hands on a Z10. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I know how much you all want it.
That said, Mashable's Lance Ulanoff doesn't care that so many of you don't have Z10's yet, so he put his unit through drop test hell. You can check out the video above as he drops it on carpet, hardwoods and even a concrete sidewalk.
The verdict? The BlackBerry Z10 is tough and can take a fall, but it's not indestructible. If you have butter fingers , you'll definitely be wanting to pick up a case to protect your investment. Luckily, CrackBerry has you covered there.
