Almost three weeks after making the whole tech world explode, the new iPhones are still getting attention like Miley Cyrus' tongue.

So, are they any good? Let early reviews answer that.

How did the other brands take the launch? Let's just say they had a good time responding to the event.

However, aside from the usual debates and reactions, the new iPhones are also getting the spotlight as subjects for people who have too much time on their hands want to know just how tough they are. And, we tell you, they didn't go easy on Apple's latest and greatest handsets. They subjected the devices to torture we're not crazy enough to do on our own gadgets!

We're talking about abuse like...


DROPPING THE IPHONE 6 FROM OVER 7,000 FEET

So these wingsuited guys decided to drop the iPhone 6 from over 7,000 feet in the air! Whoa! Now that's a drop test! Did it survive? The answer might will surprise you.

We only have two words for this: May himala!


SUBMERGING THE IPHONE 6 PLUS IN LIQUID NITROGEN

Your maiihi-ka-to-the-max early morning bath in Baguio? It has nothing on liquid nitrogen, bro! At a temperature of -200 degrees Celsius (note that ice is at a mere 0 degrees Celsius), it offers another extreme form of torture for anyone or anything. So, what happens when you submerge the iPhone 6 Plus in it? Let the video below be your answer.

So close... We just don't get the need for a sledgehammer. Can you say overkill?


PUTTING THE IPHONE 6 PLUS IN A BLENDER

Here we answer the all-important, life-changing question, "Will it blend?" Thanks to the guys of Blendtec in YouTube, the answer couldn't be clearer.

Hmm...so that's how they make shakes for Optimus Prime and the gang.


SHOOTING THE IPHONE 6 PLUS WITH A BIG-ASS GUN

Forget liquid nitrogen, blenders, and drop tests: This right here is the real thing. It can't get much more extreme than a test involving a big-ass gun that fires 50-caliber rounds! "Did Apple's first-ever phablet survive?" You've gotta be kidding if you're really asking us that.

That slow-mo action is soothing in a macho way. Boys and girls, don't ever try any of these at home, okay?


BENDING THE IPHONES

This is the tamest of the bunch, but we reckon it's the most important of 'em all. You see, this test was a result of iPhone 6 Plus users reporting that the device tends to bend when inside a pocket. This allegedly shows the effect real-world, everyday use can have on the gadget. It's not looking really good for Apple right now, as the video below shows:

What's worse for iPhone 6 Plus fans is that other superphones seem to hold up better against bending. Hey, Apple! You've got some explaining to do!


Naturally rival phone brands have jumped on the opportunity to poke fun at the fruity brand because of the so-called "Bendgate Issue." Check out on the next page: tech's version of trash-talking!
