Hopefully Apple can find a way to improve on the glass as future shipments make their way into the market, helping to secure their hold on the Apple fan community.
When it comes to maintenance of the gadget, you can be charged high if you had a normal slip of your iPhone from your hand.
Apple touts that the iPhone X has "the most durable glass ever in a smartphone", but glass is glass after all and it's bound to break, shatter, or crack at some point. And while you might think the $1,000 price tag would go to ensuring a little bit of insurance, rest assured, the fix costs are just as high.
Three feet might sound like a big deal as generally you don't want to drop any electronic from any distance, however phones have been proving to be more and more resilient to such impacts as we move further into the evolution of such technologies like Gorilla Glass.
The least amount of damage occured when the phone was dropped directly on its side. A second drop test is done on the front side of the phone extracted much more heavy damage to the handset.
"You'd expect there to be a high price to pay for a attractive 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. Meanwhile, the back drop completely shattered the back panel leaving loose shards of glass, making it hard to hold. And the drop from the edge also caused physical and functional damage to the smartphone.
However, many other YouTubers have been putting the new phone through its paces with varying results.
It may cost a fortune, but there's no denying that the iPhone X is jaw-droppingly pretty.
SquareTrade posted a video that showed the iPhone X dropped from different angles at a height of 6 feet; the phone fared poorly in each test. 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.
