Surprise! Apple's flagship iPhone X is the most breakable iPhone ever…

Localytics

The iPhone X may be confusing to people used to older iPhones. In its drop tests, SquareTrade found the iPhone X to be "the most breakable, highest-priced, most expensive to fix iPhone ever", with screen malfunctions, swipe failures, display separation and edge scratches after 1 drop from 6 feet onto the device's side. The display reached near textbook flawless calibration and performance.

Repairability: SquareTrade's Master Technician noted that the iPhone X has a thinner, more costly OLED screen that's more expensive to replace, a smaller logic board, multiple cables, and a split battery that's more hard to remove. You can read the full report at the link below!

"SquareTrade apparently conducted the test because it questions Apple's claim that it has "the most durable glass ever in a smartphone" and asks if "$549 for most repairs" is "worth the risk?"

TechRax subjected his iPhone X to a solid stabbing with a kitchen knife, which the iPhone X withstood fairly easily. It emerged with more cracks erupting across both sides of the device.

Panasonic Eluga A4 Launched with gigantic 5000mAh Battery at Rs.12490
The Panasonic Eluga A4 sports a metallic build with antenna lines running along the top and bottom half of the phone's rear-side. The mobile phone is called the Panasonic Eluga A4 , it is priced at Rs 12,490 and it packs in a massive 5,000 mAh battery .

However, many other YouTubers have been putting the new phone through its paces with varying results. In the second drop, the phone fell directly on its front face. 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. 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.

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. 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. Whether it's the iPhone 4 or the iPhone 5s, there is history in this company with cracked screens and higher fix costs.

Even SquareTrade has rated it the most breakable. Do you buy accidental damage insurance on your smartphones?

So, you might want to get a case for your iPhone X after all.
