The clip went viral on social media, and the result is unsurprising, reports UNILAD TECH. Flohr flies his drone over 300 metres high and has the phones attached to the flying device before they fall from the dizzying height.

The smartphone is completely after impact, while the Nokia is shattered but amazingly still switches on. The Samsung was launched in 2019 and discontinued earlier in 2022, reports GSMarena.
