Watch an iPhone X Get Stabbed, Hit with a Hammer

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

The iPhone X may be confusing to people used to older iPhones.

In a recent video, the YouTuber performs a series of "durability tests" on the new device, including stabbing the rear of the iPhone X with a sharp knife repeatedly - which, surprisingly, does little to scathe the rear glass back of the smartphone. The display reached near textbook ideal calibration and performance.

"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, vice president global creative director at SquareTrade. You can read the full report at the link below!

However, Apple also quietly released a support document on Friday that states the iPhone X display could suffer from color shifts and screen burn-in over time.

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. SquareTrade has been putting the latest phones through their paces over the past couple years.


Side and Back Drop Tests: Remarkably, the side drop did the most internal damage to the phone. As these technologies improve, we have seen screens and phone bodies improve with them, including curved, double sided glass (both sides of the phone) and now possibly folding screens (in the near future).

Dunk Test: The iPhone X faired similar to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models, surviving 30 minutes under five feet of water with some audio muffling during playback. Whether it's the iPhone 4 or the iPhone 5s, there is history in this company with cracked screens and higher fix costs. All of which may be why Apple is charging a whopping $279 for front screen replacement and $549 for other repairs.

Even SquareTrade has rated it the most breakable. A smile can be found on the faces of iPhone droppers every time a screen goes uncracked, spurning the hefty fix fee or, worse yet, the looming expense of buying another smartphone.

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