I was very curious to see how the BlackBerry Z10 would stand up to a drop test but just didn’t have the heart to perform it myself. BlackBerry did point out to me that unlike other devices they did not stretch the glass to the corners so that a drop would not shatter the device. This is one of the HUGE flaws of the Samsung Galaxy S3 since any drop (even a foot or two) will shatter the corners and maybe the whole device. The iPhone used to also have drop issues but recently Apple made it much sturdier with the iPhone 5 and only a face down drop will really shatter the device.
Mashable decided to check how well the BlackBerry Z10 holds up to drops from your pocket, chest, and head on carpet, wood, and concrete. While they claim it failed the test I think it is pretty impressive for a full touchscreen to withstand those falls. The moral of the story is avoid dropping your Z10 on concrete but its a pretty sturdy device!
