We showed you a lucky handful of people who snagged one when they first went on sale last Friday … but one of them landed in the hands of Richard Ryan, a video blogger who specialises in slow motion video of things being destroyed by gunfire.
This week’s edition: The gold iPhone gets shot with a Barrett M82A1 sniper rifle.
Ryan initially puts the gold iPhone to the drop test on dirt, concrete, and a into a bowl of water. To Apple’s credit, the phone keeps working. But the phone fails the 50 calibre speeding bullet test. There’s a Google Glass video too, if you want the first-person-shooter view.
See the video below. Spoiler alert:The iPhone loses.
