Prompted by Youtube videos showing phones being dropped, scratched, pegged, punted and cracking walnuts, TODAY host Karl Stefanovic put the "Tradie's phone" Aspera R6 to the ultimate test by throwing it off the roof of Channel Nine studios in Sydney.
"This thing is the Chuck Norris of smartphones, it's waterproof, it's very durable," Brown said.
After whacking the Aspera against the desk, dipping it in water and throwing it to the floor, Karl was not convinced.
"So this one can stand anything?" he asked a very reluctant Brown, "I'm going to go upstairs and throw it from the chopper," he joked, before sprinting out of the studio.
Karl gave a quick thumbs up before launching the Aspera phone off the roof of the Sydney studio, closely followed by the tablet.
"It survived! It's a miracle!" Karl said.
