It seems that every year without fail and despite Apple’s best attempts, they have always managed to sell out their iPhones, thus causing people who were late to the pre-order party to end up having to wait weeks before they could get their hands on one. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are no different, which is why it does seem a tad wasteful to see them undergo drop tests.

However if you thought some of the drop test videos did seem particularly painful to watch and a little heart-wrenching, then perhaps this is one video you will want to skip. The folks at RatedRR have recently gotten their hands on Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus, and in true RatedRR fashion, they have come up with a pretty unique way to torture the device – liquid nitrogen.

They took the new iPhone 6 Plus and poured liquid nitrogen over the handset, thus freezing it solid. Once the phone was frozen solid, they look a sledgehammer to it and shattered it, and true to RatedRR’s style, it was all captured in slow-motion. In some ways it is beautiful to watch but at the same time like we said earlier, it does feel a bit like a waste of a perfectly good phone.

In any case if you have a few minutes to spare, do check out the video above if you would like to to see the brand new iPhone 6 Plus being shattered into smithereens.
