Take a look at the hilarious video after the break to see how people act when they try to pick up this “new iPhone 5”. » iPhone 5 Super-Glued On Busy Street In Amsterdam

Like always after an Apple device launch people will create drop test and durability  videos, so here they are again. This time they created an iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 drop test video (above) and the iPhone 5 did amazing.

Well, as much as we hate to admit it, the iPhone 5 did amazingly well in our drop test, while the Samsung Galaxy S3 came out in pretty bad shape. It’s the cold hard truth that we can’t hide and we can’t ignore.
….
The hard aluminum shell of the iPhone 5 withstood the impact pretty well, and the glass protecting the display remained intact. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S3 predictably lost its back cover and suffered damage to the casing and the front glass. Sad, sad, sad.

Check out after the break for another video where iFixYouri is dropping the iPhone 5 from various heights. The iPhone 5 survived all the falls until they finally threw the device screen down. They call it the “most durable iPhone” they have ever seen. » iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 Drop Tests

iDownloadBlog reported that the Verizon iPhone 5 is GSM unlocked. “Even though I bought an iPhone 5 from Verizon under contract, I was able to cut down my AT&T Micro SIM, and use it in my Verizon iPhone 5 to pick up an AT&T signal. By doing so, I was able to hop onto AT&T’s HPSA+ network, or “4G” as they so ridiculously name it.” With that they confirmed that you can use a Verizon iPhone 5 on AT&T or T-Mobile, freely, even if you’re a brand new customer under contract. » Verizon iPhone 5 Confirmed To Be Unlocked

iFixit got their hands on an iPhone 5 from Australia and started to teardown the iPhone 5 to see what’s inside. Some big changes in Apple’s latest iPhone are the 4-inch 1136×640 pixel (326 ppi) Retina display, the Apple A6 system on a chip (SoC), the 8 megapixel iSight camera, the new 8-pin Lightning connector, 4G LTE connectivity and of course iOS 6. The first thing they noticed during the teardown is that it will be a lot easier replacing the iPhone 5 screen than previous iPhone’s, “Because the iPhone 5 is opened front-to-back, replacing a cracked screen is going to be easier than ever. Compare this to the iPhone 4s, where it took 38 steps to isolate the display assembly.” » iPhone 5 Teardown [iFixit]
