Is this the most damaged (yet still working) iPhone in the world?

Is this the most damaged (yet still working) iPhone in the world?

Have you ever wondered just how well an iPhone is built? Having worked in the mobile app development industry for a number of years now, I’ve seen quite a massive number of phones get dropped, resulting in the extremely common cracked screen. I have to admit, I’ve even been victim to this disaster myself. Not only this, but I’ve also dropped an iPhone in a sink full of water. Much to my surprise though, after leaving it overnight to dry out, it actually still worked. There was absolutely nothing wrong with it. 

The phone pictured here, however, is in fact the most damaged iPhone I have come across that actually still works. This actually belongs to one of the directors of ACS and he’s been using it in this state for over two months now. Yes, some of the screen is unusable, as there are actually chunks of touch screen missing, but he has actually managed to use it as a phone, email client and much more for all this time.

I am guessing this phone will reach the end of its life any day now, but I have to admit that Apple has done a somewhat amazing job with the durability of this device.
