If you’re the kind person who likes to watch phone drop test videos, you’ve probably seen a few for the iPhone 5 by now. But have you seen one in which the device was dropped from 100,000 feet?

G-Form has posted this video promoting its latest iPhone case. They drive to the desert, and send the device up with a balloon.

The phone appears to work after the drop.

    It’s not the fall, it’s the sudden stop.
    Looks like it fell on the balloon and a shrub while being slowed down from the balloon’s drag.
    Cool video, but proves nothing about your product.

    They could have dropped it off a building and recorded the whole video in one shot. Then I’d believe it. *the phone would take as much or more damage from 50 feet onto pavement as a 100,000 foot drop onto a pile of rubber and shrub.
