Try Not to Drop That iPhone X
07 November 2017, 01:08 | Gina Pena
iPhone X breakability and durability tests stress the need for a protective case
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. When he repeatedly hit the iPhone X with the hammer, its display quickly started to shatter further, suggesting that the iPhone X would still be vulnerable to cracking if dropped on a hard surface. "The iPhone X's fragility, along with Apple's $549 fee for repairs, make it the definition of a high-risk phone".
The iPhone X may be confusing to people used to older iPhones.
So just how durable is the glass on the iPhone X? It emerged with more cracks erupting across both sides of the device.
Side and Back Drop Tests: Remarkably, the side drop did the most internal damage to the phone. 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. 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.
With T-Mobile Deal All But Dead, Softbank Looks To Charter
But in a joint statement Saturday, Sprint and T-Mobile said they were calling off merger negotiations for the foreseeable future. T-Mobile, meanwhile, has provided Deutsche Telekom with growth at a time when the European market has been stagnant.
Overall, Jerry's impressed with the iPhone X's durability even though the phone has a fragile glass OLED display and back. Although the screen was able to recognize touch through cracks suffered during the test, the "home" swipe command failed, stranding users in the app that happened to be open.
However, the X's market share is lower than the 2.3 share the iPhone 6 models saw in their first weekend in 2014; the 1.3 percent adoption of the iPhone 6S models in 2015; and the 1.2 percent adoption of the iPhone 7 models in 2016. The YouTuber puts each major smartphone release to the same scratch, burn and bend test as a means of controlling the results.
So, the conclusion over this reveals that buying an iPhone would be easy for you.
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.
