A nice case with a nice tempered glass screen protector. That is how mine would live. Must. Stay. In. New. Condition. Always.

I'd rather see what damage a knife and hammer can do to the Verizon drone who gave him a phone to break all the embargos with.

Re: M8 Destruction!

It's been a long time since I saw a video like this and I'm surprised how well the screen did.

I don't like to use screen protectors and I ditched them entirely when I had an HTC 8X and I have the M7 since August last year without a scratch. I will do the same with the M8 or other phone in a couple of months. All phones now have good tolerance to scratches and hits on the screen.

Re: M8 Destruction!

In other equally exciting news the Earth is not flat and if you'll try hitting your head with a hammer with sufficient force - you will bleed and will break your skull...

To be serious I really don't understand the practical purpose for these videos (other than making more $$$ from YouTube Ads program) - the phone is still just a thin metal and glass and you can obviously scratch or crack it just like you, for example, can crack a thick bullet-proof laminated glass if you'll apply enough force to it. Would be more interesting to see such tests done in a lab conditions, with a same, specific amount of force being applied to different phone's (by different brands) displays, with specific tool at a specific angle.

There's an audience that likes destruction and enjoys seeing really nice things destroyed. I won't purport to understand the psychology behind it, but it is what it is.

Re: M8 Destruction!

I wish they would have mixed in some real word drop tests without a case as well. Maybe from 2', 4', and 6'? Try to get to land on face, back and corners? I assume that will be done by someone soon.

Also, since it is inside the 1st 6 months, HTC will replace the screen on this one right? :D

You mean you wanted the video to be useful? Heresy!
