Tech Armor Field Test: iPhone 6 Plus vs. Lawnmower

When developing superior protection for top devices like the iPhone 6 Plus, we often field test our products to see how they stand up to the rigors of daily use. From standard drop tests and bike ride mishaps to two-story falls on concrete, we feel our methods yield superior results. Still, one of our loyal Twitter followers in the Tech Armor nation shared a story with us this week that raised the bar!! We couldn't help but share it here with you:



@TA_TechArmor thx ur case & screen protector saved my phone! Works perfect still #MowedOverMyPhone#FlexProtectAir"

He couldn't be serious, right?

That's what we thought, so we reached out to Nic for more info on how this happened and some proof of life on the phone. Fortunately, he was more than willing to share the story and imagery! We'll let him take it from here...

"My name is, Nic Hale, from Oklahoma and I just want to send a praise to Tech Armor products! I have an iPhone 6 Plus, so I bought: a Tech Armor glass screen protector, as well as the Flex Protect Air case.  I bought this case because of it's sleek, simple design while protecting the phone. Still, little did I know I was going to truly put the product to the ultimate test!  

Last Sunday morning, I went out to our property to mow. I had my Bluetooth headphones on, rocking out,  while I drove  around on the mower.  I made a few passes around the yard and next thing I know my music stops and then my headphones warned of a "low signal". I stopped the mower, realizing my phone wasn't in my pocket and thinking, "hmm I must have left it in the truck". Well, it couldn't be in the truck, because I was closer to the truck than before and I didn't lose signal...  I thought 'oh no that's not good', I quickly retraced my last pass of the mower and as I walked over, I saw my phone laying face down in the grass.  As I got closer, I realized the case is no longer on the phone. I thought to myself, "there is no way this phone is not completely obliterated!"  

I reached down and grabbed my phone, much to my surprise, there is very little damage, considering, what had just happened.  My screen was perfect, with no scratches, cracks, chips, nothing!!  The back of the phone had a small chunk out of the bottom corner and a few surface scratches...  A true testament to the case taking the initial blow is the fact that the phone is actually bent and the screen (like I said before) is still perfect.  This small, thin case saved my phone!  I believe the case took the first, major impact when going into the mower. It launched the phone out of the case, out of the mower and then the case must have stayed in the mower longer, because it ended up completely destroyed!

Basically, I'm writing this letter to tell you, thank you for making a great product!! I truly believe that had your case not been on my phone, I wouldn't be typing this message on that same phone today! "
