Video: Want to see what happens when an iPhone 5s gets run over by a train? Of course you do

iPhone 5s Vs Train

The iPhone 5s is amazingly solid for a smartphone made entirely of glass and ultra-thin aluminum. It looks great, it feels great and it can survive its fair share of drops as long as it doesn’t hit a hard surface on its corner. But can it survive being run over by a speeding train?

No, of course it can’t.

YouTube user TechRax recently posted a video of not one but two iPhone 5s handsets being run over by speeding trains. Why? We have absolutely no idea… but that didn’t stop us from watching the video out of sheer morbid curiosity.

The full video is embedded below.
