The iPhone X looks like it wants to break.
After all, the common perception is that the prettier the device, the more fragile it is.
Indeed, the iPhone X is a gorgeous device clad in glass. But the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are also clad in glass. With that logic, the iPhone X’s durability should be pretty similar to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, right?
Check it out:
Both the front and the back of the iPhone X survived three drop tests from waist-height in the EverythingApplePro YouTube channel’s drop test.
And even from head height, the iPhone X’s front and back survived three falls from three different angles.
Filip of EverythingApplePro had some pretty great things to say about the iPhone X’s durability based off his drop tests.
During the drop-test video, Filip seemed pretty amazed by the iPhone X’s durability, saying the “iPhone X seems to be one of the most durable phones I have ever tested on a drop, it’s incredible.” He believes the stainless steel frame on the iPhone X has something to do with its surprising durability.
And, of course, the glass on the iPhone X’s front and back sustained no damage from a total of six drop tests from different angles; three from waist height, and three from head-height.
