In this drop test performed by Unlockriver.com and posted on their YouTube channel, they literally flew a Nintendo Switch up into the air and dropped it to its apparent doom onto a parking lot.
Surprisingly, the device survived, albeit with it’s left Joy-Con was obliterated by the fall. But otherwise it was completely functional, had no real damage besides the left controller and the screen even was intact.
Perhaps it has a lot to do with the angle of impact but dang, that’s impressive. Of course, please don’t try this for yourself, a Nintendo Switch IS a rather expensive bit of gaming gear and I implore you, it doesn’t deserve that kinda punishment.
