Unboxing Gone Wrong: Man Drops New iPhone X. Video Will Make You Gasp

"That's how you unbox a phone, yes," says one Redditor.


Every time Apple launches a new iPhone, videos of people unboxing the phone and/or performing the drop test on it flood the Internet. And that's exactly what's been happening now that the new iPhone X is out.

A clip of a man unboxing his brand new iPhone X and dropping it on the floor has surfaced online -  and it's making many uncomfortable on Reddit. While some can't understand how the man could be so callous with his $999 phone, others wonder if the whole thing was staged.

Posted on Reddit on November 7, the clip shows the man unboxing his phone moments after purchasing it, it seems. As he proceeds to open the box, the phone can be seen slipping out and falling on the ground. Since being posted, the clip has collected over one million views.

Apple fan or not, chances are, this unboxing will make you gasp.

Now, the jury is out on whether the video is staged or the man actually dropped his phone.

"That's how you unbox a phone, yes," says one Redditor. "Unboxing an iPhone sideways makes me wonder if this guy drinks using the further/outer lip end of the cup," says another.

"You can SEE him try to make it happen and pause. So stupid. Also how you know it breaks? I didnt see any close up after. Wonder why," says one commenter. "WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU OPEN IT LIKE THAT?" asks another.

"I did exactly this with my new Samsung solid state hard drive. Thank God it works. Please, manufacturers, please strap these things in. It's so easy to prevent," suggests one Reddit user. "He kinda deserve it though. I've never seen somebody open up a box with an expensive item inside like that," says another.
