The World’s Most Broken iPhone, That Still Works

By  |  5 Comments

We’ve seen iPhones fall out of planes and keep working, but on a recent flight one of our editors caught sight of the world’s most busted iPhone that is still in daily use.

This broken iPhone 4 doesn’t belong to a stuntman, but to a sorority sister who may party a bit too hard and is on her third iPhone 4.

This iPhone 4 is so busted that our editor confused it for a steampunk mod of some sort, and when you look at the inside of the phone, you’ll understand why.

Why not try an Otterbox case? Apparently this isn’t the first time someone has suggested that to her, but after breaking one case and with the iPhone in its current conditions, she isn’t in the market for a new case.

Despite all of the cracks and missing plastic, this iPhone 4 is still functioning and in daily use. During a quick conversation our editor learned that the iPhone owner enjoys attending football games, and that the phone may have fallen down at least one set of bleachers in it’ troubled life.

Despite the cracks, this iPhone 4 display still works.

Yes, the display still powers on and even controls games without any major issues, which is surprising given the numerous cracks.

    Won’t be so much fun the first time he gets shards of glass embedded in his fingertips…
