Most smartphone users know that if you drop your smartphone while standing up onto a hard surface, odds are if it’s not in a case, the screen will be broken. The new Motorola Droid Turbo 2 smartphone is supposed to have a very strong screen that Motorola bills as shatterproof. Some smartphone loving geeks took one of those Droid Turbo 2 smartphones and took it 900-feet into the air.

The smartphone was dangling from a cord beneath a quad rotor drone that carried it into the air and then dropped it once at altitude. The smartphone tumbled to the ground and appears to have landed solidly on one corner of the smartphone.

Despite falling from 900-feet and landing on asphalt, the Droid Turbo 2 smartphone did very well in the test. After impact, the corner it landed on was cracked, but the smartphone and screen appears to still work perfectly. The touch function works and the user can be seen scrolling the screen.

If it took a fall from 900 feet to crack a corner of the smartphone, you should be able to drop the device and have it survive with no problems. The display on the smartphone is dubbed Moto Shattershield and it is the first Motorola device to use the tech. Droid Turbo 2 also gets a battery good for 48 hours of use, 21MP camera, and a 5.4-inch Quad HD display.
