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

The iPhone X is built with the "most durable glass ever in a smartphone", according to Apple. Combined with the rapid sell out of pre-sale inventory and a return to long lines outside Apple Stores for the iPhone X launch on Friday, AAPL stock hit new record highs on Friday morning. SquareTrade has been putting the latest phones through their paces over the past couple years. A second drop test is done on the front side of the phone extracted much more heavy damage to the handset. 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. Just make sure you don't also drop the phone because, as CNET found out in a torture test, the iPhone X does not hold up especially well.

Both the Pixel 2 XL and the iPhone X ditched traditional LCD technology for OLED displays.

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. Once I turned off the screen, I noticed an additional hairline fracture running from the bottom left where the second scuff was nearly to the top of the phone. Meanwhile, the back drop completely shattered the back panel leaving loose shards of glass, making it hard to hold. 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.

Dunk Test: The iPhone X faired similar to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models, surviving 30 minutes under five feet of water with some audio muffling during playback.

If you want a full breakdown of exactly how fragile the iPhone X is, take a look at their breakability test below and keep your new smartphone close to your chest!

TechRax subjected his iPhone X to a solid stabbing with a kitchen knife, which the iPhone X withstood fairly easily.

It's obviously always wise to do everything in your power to protect an expensive, high-end mobile device from all types of damage, but unfortunately the iPhone X is special in a number of anxiety-enhancing ways.
