Next year, Kuo sees Apple making the stainless steel band on its premium phone out of more than the four parts it used for the iPhone X. This could improve data transmission on the device as well as enhance its design.

Basically, don't leave the Apple store without a case or a warranty. The results were surprised that the unlocking of the phone was not regular after the test.

The side drop was considered the most damaging internally, while the exterior of the phone remained mostly intact. 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. When he repeatedly hit the iPhone X with the hammer, its display quickly started to shatter further, suggesting that the iPhone X would still be vulnerable to cracking if dropped on a hard surface. While the outside of the phone only suffered cosmetic damage, the screen was rendered inoperable. When the phone was dropped from the same height from the back panel, it caused complete damage to the back glass panel. Torch the iPhone X with a lighter, however, and it'll die within seconds. Particularly when it lands upside down, the wary anticipation of checking the screen for cracks is enough to make you wish you and your expensive technology had never been born.

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. In other words, Apple isn't just competing against rivals for market share, it's competing against itself.

After all was said and done, SquareTrade gave it a "Breakability Score" of 90 (presumably out of 100), meaning it's a "High Risk" of shattering or breaking. This is aimed at potential iPhone buyers and in it, Apple lays out the known issues with OLED technology, along with best practices to avoid problems. But for the iPhone X, Apple's fix bills are more expensive than ever.

In its own drop test, CNET tossed it 3 feet to the sidewalk, and iPhone X came away with a small crack and a seperate fracture on the back of the device. Do you buy accidental damage insurance on your smartphones?
