Try Not to Drop That iPhone X

Try Not to Drop That iPhone X

Apple warns of iPhone X screen burn-in issues in its support document page. Localytics is predicting the Phone X will end up grabbing more of the overall iPhone market share than any of its predecessors did during their first few months on the market, even if it didn't do so for the launch weekend. The display reached near textbook ideal calibration and performance. "We believe the metal frame of 2H18F iPhone models will be composed of more parts (iPhone X has four parts) for improving data transmission quality". You can read the full report at the link below! Torch the iPhone X with a lighter, however, and it'll die within seconds. 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. SquareTrade has been putting the latest phones through their paces over the past couple years. 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.

Side and Back Drop Tests: Remarkably, the side drop did the most internal damage to the phone. He also burnt the phone with a cigarette lighter and attempted to bend it, but concluded that the iPhone X is indeed a solidly-build handset that's hard to damage without deliberately trying to do so. 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. 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.

After all was said and done, SquareTrade gave it a "Breakability Score" of 90 (presumably out of 100), meaning it's a "High Risk" of shattering or breaking. And where Apple charges a fee of between $319 and $399 for any other damage to the iPhone 7 and 8 range, the X costs $549.

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

In its own drop test, CNET tossed it 3 feet to the sidewalk, and iPhone X came away with a small crack and a seperate fracture on the back of the device. Do you buy accidental damage insurance on your smartphones?
