Torture tests: Stylus Tough 8000 camera and XP3 Quest phone

The Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 point-and-shoot camera and the Sonim XP3 Quest rugged phone are supposed to be tough. How tough? We decided to find out.

In this video, we take the Olympus camera and Sonim phone and put them through a series of durability tests. We drop them, dunk them, toss them, and run one over with an SUV. Take a look to see if they survive.
