New iPhones More Fragile?

(24/7 News)  --  A new test of five smartphone models shows that Apple's new iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S are more fragile than last year's iPhone 5. 

The test by SquareTrade, a company that sells protection plans for phones, reportedly shows that the two new iPhone models are not as durable when it comes to five-foot drops to the floor or being dropped in water. 

Among the models tested, the Samsung Galaxy S4 received the worst rating, failing to work after being dropped or dunked.  The most durable model tested was Google's Moto X, which testers called the "most forgiving of accidents."
