Researchers Give iPhone X The Worst-Ever Score For Durability

iPhone X Is the 'Most Breakable Ever' According to Test

That phone not only survived drops but we have dropped one while in a cold run, watching it bounce as it hit the ground and drag a few feet before it came to a stop. Well, I'm all out of ideas, so just don't drop it.

Videos of various iPhone X drop-tests have been hitting the web since the new smartphone went on sale last week.

In a statement, Jason Siciliano, vice president and global creative director at SquareTrade said "Despite Apple's claims that their glass is the most durable ever in a smartphone, the iPhoneX is the most breakable iPhone we've ever tested".

While shipping delays may already be improving, the market share data for the first weekend may not be the best way to measure the iPhone X's adoption, but it's what's available for now. SquareTrade has been putting the latest phones through their paces over the past couple years. It emerged with more cracks erupting across both sides of the device.

The side drop was considered the most damaging internally, while the exterior of the phone remained mostly intact. Internal brackets, spot welds and foam hold the front-facing cameras firmly in place so they can pull off delicate features like Portrait Mode, and the rear-facing Face ID camera technology comes out of the display when it's separated, making the OLED display replaceable without fiddling with the cameras embedded within it.

Tumble Test:Sixty seconds in the Tumble Bot was no friend to the iPhone X either. An industry analyst found that the iPhone X's flashier parts cost Apple 25 percent more than the iPhone 8, but that it retails for 43 percent more.

Other things users can do to protect the Super Retina display include using auto-brightness and setting the iPhone X to switch off the display when it's not being used.

Several of Apple's design choices for the iPhone X pushed up its price. The YouTuber puts each major smartphone release to the same scratch, burn and bend test as a means of controlling the results. 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.
