Ever wondered about the durability of your Nintendo Switch but aren't so keen on potentially wasting some $300? Well, this video is for you. YouTube channel UnlockRiver.com put the console through its paces by dropping it from 1,000 feet — and the end result is surprising.
The Switch has proven to be a huge hit for Nintendo with 2.74 million hardware units sold worldwide since its launch (for context, the Wii U sold around the same number in its first year). On first glance, the gaming system's exterior might look rather flimsy, but as you'll see above, it's undoubtedly made of stern stuff.
Watch the test, and then check out what happened when the same folks tossed a Samsung Galaxy S8 from the same height.
