iPhone 5 Scratch and Drop Tests

As usual, it didn't take long for videos of the new iPhone 5 being subjected to abuse popped up. As you'll be able to see, the new iPhone is indeed less prone to glass shattering, as you'd expect form a model that completely abandoned a glass back cover. The touchscreen is as tough as they come, being able to withstand more than it should ever face in real life; and as for the drop tests... things aren't that bad.

For most drop scenarios, up to chest height, the iPhone seems to barely be affected. At shoulder height it begins to show some signs of bending/deformation, but the screen still survived. They had to take it even higher, above your head, and drop it several more times, to finally break the screen. So... unless you're a really unlucky guy or gal, you shouldn't have to worry much about it.

I'm just curious to see how the white iPhone would react to aluminium scratching - as the black iPhone 5 is easily scratched, stripping away the black superficial cover and revealing the shiny aluminium. On the white iPhone things should at least be a bit less conspicuous.
