Try Not to Drop That iPhone X

  • iPhone X Is the 'Most Breakable Ever' According to Test

"You'd expect there to be a high price to pay for a handsome phone like the iPhone X. Unfortunately for consumers, in the end it's likely to be more than the $1,000 they've already invested", said Jason Siciliano, global creative director at Square Trade in a press release.

In addition to the iPhone X's more limited availability at launch (20 cities' retail stores even sold out by Sunday), Localytics cautions that historical comparisons may not be the best way to analyze the new device's popularity. Well, I'm all out of ideas, so just don't drop it.

That's why Apple published a helpful video on Friday going over some of the basics on how to use the iPhone X. Apple also includes some pointers in its Tips app.

Page testifies he told Sessions about Russian Federation trip
Sessions replied, "I have not seen anything that would indicate collusion with the Russians to impact the campaign". Sessions didn't respond and moved on to the next person waiting to shake his hand, this source said .

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.

Side and Back Drop Tests: Remarkably, the side drop did the most internal damage to the phone. 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.

However, many other YouTubers have been putting the new phone through its paces with varying results.

HTC's U11+ is a squeezable big-screen wonder
What should you get? The battery has been upgraded from 3000 mAh to 3980 mAh and there are also two power saving modes available. The special feature of Edge Sense technology in of HTC U11 Life and HTC U11 Plus is taking the smartphone enthusiasts by storm.

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. Nevertheless, SquareTrade conducted it and found that there were some cracks, but most harm was done to some of the iPhone X's operability. 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. Whether it's the iPhone 4 or the iPhone 5s, there is history in this company with cracked screens and higher fix costs.

If you want a full breakdown of exactly how fragile the iPhone X is, take a look at their breakability test below and keep your new smartphone close to your chest! Tragically though, iPhone X users might not get the chance to feel that kind of happiness ever again. Do you buy accidental damage insurance on your smartphones?
