It doesn't matter how many times we force ourselves to sit down and watch them -- torture tests of the newest, hottest phones always make us flinch (and ultimately vomit, if we endure them for long enough). As tough as it is on us, though, it's ten times tougher on these poor miracles of modern mobility, getting run over, left in puddles of rainwater, frozen, stepped on repeatedly, dropped, submersed in wine (for some reason we don't fully understand), blasted with dust, and tumbled in dryers. mail.ru hasn't published its full report on the Arena's ability to survive the insane battery of worst-case scenarios, but they've published a preview video -- and it doesn't look pretty for our S-Class friend.
