In durability tests that have been carried out over the past week the iPhone 5 seems to have performed quite well on its own, and when matched up against it’s closest rival, the Samsung Galaxy S3.
However it seems that the iPhone 5 performs well if it has been dipped into water, and even when dropped. For some people though, it just hasn’t worked that way:
