The iPhone X is the most breakable iPhone ever

Quote:
Apple’s most beautiful (and expensive) iPhone yet is also its most fragile.

Several reputable tech publications tested the iPhone X’s durability by subjecting it to a series of brutal scratch and drop tests. The verdict across the board is that the front and rear glass panels on the $1,000 flagship phone are extremely easy to shatter, despite Apple’s claim that it’s “the most durable glass ever in a smartphone.”

The first test comes from CNET, which dropped the iPhone X onto a sidewalk from just three feet, or about pocket height. The phone suffered damage to three of its four corners on the very first drop. The cracks on the screen spread deeper and wider on the second drop from the same distance. Because of those poor results, CNET gave the device the dubious honor of “most breakable iPhone ever.”

A few days later, electronics warranty provider SquareTrade uploaded a short drop test to YouTube. The iPhone X’s OLED display shattered and malfunctioned after being dropped onto its stainless steel side from six feet high.

I guess Apple's happy and making even more money from all the repairs from all the multiple and various sites doing all their own drop tests.

I guess you'll have to ask yourself what "features" does the X have that you really must have for several hundreds of dollars???

Or be like some that just have an expensive pride and vanity — and lots of spare cash, and maybe some tolerance for some non-working problems.

Oh yes, don't forget to add the cost of a good protective case and possibly AppleCare+…
