iPhone X breakability and durability tests stress the need for a protective case
07 November, 2017, 01:08
So we were a little concerned about durability, so like the other phones we test here, we subjected it to a series of drop tests where we put it on a specialized slider. "With the iPhone X, that is no longer the case", according to the New York Times.
We're less than a week removed from the launch of the iPhone X, which means it's just about time that we start wildly speculating about next year's iPhone models. "The iPhone X's fragility, along with Apple's $549 fee for repairs, make it the definition of a high-risk phone".
That is largely because the iPhone 8 uses older LCD technology, while the iPhone X uses what is called "Super AMOLED" technology, which allows for more vivid colors and a thinner overall design.
The "Tumble Test" saw the iPhone X placed in a "Tumble Bot" for 60 seconds (imagine the inside of a washing machine), taking short, constant bumps. Except that some tests from a third party claim that the device with a $1,000 entry point is the most breakable the company has produced.
The side drop was considered the most damaging internally, while the exterior of the phone remained mostly intact.
A drop on the phone's corner gave it only minor scratches, while a drop on the phone's front display produced a visible, but small glass fracture on the device's top-left side. For the water dunk test, in which the phone was placed somewhat deep under water for 30 minutes, the phone was somewhat unaffected aside from a little audio muffling.
Another pricey choice was the stainless steel chassis of the iPhone X, which cost $36 versus $21.50 for the aluminum housing of the iPhone 8.

Of course, SquareTrade offers up insurance plans which are often cheaper than plans you may be able to get through your carrier. That said, it could be that the iPhone X is one expensive accident waiting to happen. A smile can be found on the faces of iPhone droppers every time a screen goes uncracked, spurning the hefty fix fee or, worse yet, the looming expense of buying another smartphone.
