Some men just want to watch the iPhone burn.

When it comes to buying a smartphone one of the important things to consider is durability. Can it survive a drop? What happens when it gets wet? How long can it survive being on fire? If you’ve never asked yourself that last question, there’s probably a good reason you’re not a hit on YouTube. Zach Straley however, does ask those questions, and then answers them with the power of flame.

In a new video, Straley sees which model of iPhone can survive the longest after being set on fire. The results may surprise you, unless you’re still holding on to your beloved and nearly indestructible iPhone 4s. The iPhone 6 is great phone in many respects but when comes to surviving the blaze it can’t take the heat.

Enjoy, and please don’t set your electronics on fire.

Why are Chinese citizens smashing iPhones in the street?
There are plenty of reasons someone might smash an iPhone, but you’re first guess probably wouldn’t be patriotism. However, that’s the impetus behind a current wave of iPhone destruction currently sweeping China. It’s not just iPhones that are being targeted, it’s everything viewed as a symbol of America. So why are the Chinese people so mad at American symbols all of a sudden? It all comes down to some islands in the South China Sea.
