Nintendo Switch Pushed To The Limit In Ultimate Durability Test


YouTube is full of tech durability tests, but these guys really push each device to its limits. The Nintendo Switch seems pretty durable, but GizmoSlip want to know whether it can survive being thrown through basketball hoops and tossed like a football. While we could tell you whether the Switch lives through these ordeals, it’s much more fun to check out the video below.

    I treasure every single piece of my technology and I feel awful even when I get a single small scratch or bump, so I feel really anxious watching these videos.

  3. Nintendo Switch is kinda Almost​ unbreakable, but it can’t survive the fall when people throw the tablet in the air.

  4. Know I feel reassured if I ever drop my switch it will be ok. Not that I would ever drop I keep it bubble wrapped at all times

    Yea it has a really durable build surprisingly since it doesn’t look that way. Still keep it on lockdown tho hybrid cover and gel guards on the joycons and a carrying case on top of that when I’m moving it around lol

      i found this entertaining


  7. I don’t think I could watch this. It’s like nails on a chalkboard. It’d probably make the poor Commander short circuit!

      Commander would actually probably be proud of how durable it is even through all of the stuff they put it through

        xD That’s funnier than it should be. Especially after watching it 3-5 times already.


  8. I never understood how people could juggle. I sometimes have trouble even juggling 2 oranges.

    Just today i was changing carts while the Switch was on the Hori stand and the ledge snapped off and my Switch hit the ceramic floor. Not a scratch. Lesson: Don’t change carts while Switch is on the stand.


    1. I think Nintendo should have put 2 kickstands on the Switch. I was using it the other day with the kickstand out, and every time I even slightly moved the table/stand that the Switch was sitting on, it fell over. It’s VERY unstable when standing.

    While I don’t trust my Switch & actually hate it a little right now, I can’t watch this. Now if it was a Wii U & Gamepad one, sign me the fuck up!
