Your New iPhone X Is One of the Most Fragile Smartphones Ever

  • Apple iPhone X drop test

The face-down test rendered the iPhone X useless due to a shattered screen and unresponsive inputs, including the facial recognition feature.

Videos of various iPhone X drop-tests have been hitting the web since the new smartphone went on sale last week.

The iPhone X is already showing strong consumer adoption, according to a new report from Localytics out today, despite the fact that long shipping delays for pre-orders mean many customers have yet to receive their devices. Apple is now offering 30-minute online training sessions to iPhone X customers to help them get the most out of their new smartphone.

The "Tumble Test" saw the iPhone X placed in a "Tumble Bot" for 60 seconds (imagine the inside of a washing machine), taking short, constant bumps. The results were surprised that the unlocking of the phone was not regular after the test. 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.

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. When the phone was dropped from the same height from the back panel, it caused complete damage to the back glass panel.

TJ Dillashaw KO's Cody Garbrandt to win UFC Bantamweight Title
If Dillashaw is forced to fight within his division for his next fight, there is a clear No. 1 contender bout on the horizon. Cruz called Dillashaw out for being a "fake person", and Dillashaw let it get to him as he relinquished the title belt.


In the document, Apple is admitting that the the iPhone X display is not immune to color shift or screen burn-in, two issues the Google Pixel 2 XL is being roasted for. 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.

Despite its high costs, the iPhone X has a low threshold for pain. Or in other words, if you crack the back of your iPhone X it will cost $549 for Apple to fix it.

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.

The fact that the new iPhone can take damage so easily is not a good sign when it is priced at a thousand dollars and up.
