The Xperia Active: You’ve never seen a phone survive a beating like this Before


We’ve seen some pretty inventive ways to test the durability of an electronic device before, but this takes the cake. Leave it to a group of zany Europeans with an abundance of idle time and a Sony Ericsson Xperia Active in-hand to take endurance tests to the next level. In this trio of videos below, you’ll see the Active get skipped across a rain puddle like a rock, brutally attacked with nearly every tool in the garage, and ran over by a freakin’ Jeep Wrangler — and come out with next to nothing for war wounds. At the end of the day, it took about  20 whacks with a wrench just to leave a mark on the screen.

We warn you, what you are about to see is very graphic. Do not view these videos if the sight of cell phone abuse disturbs you:

How’s that for toughness? Talk about take a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’!

Android addict would be the two words I would use to describe myself. It’s the first thing I check in the morning, and the last thing I check before bed. I’m 30 years old, my first Android phone was the G1, shortly after its launch. I have also owned a myTouch 3G, and I have a myTouch 4G, which I am absolutely in love with. Other than Android, I’m a father, brother, college student, and almost-full-time employee at a local brewery/restaurant here in the cornfields of Iowa. If there’s anything you’d like to know, please feel free to hit me up. I’m a pretty nice guy, and I respond as quickly as I can. Thanks for stopping by!
