The Apple X is the most crackable iPhone yet.
The iPhone X is a brand new design that went on sale on Friday, to apparently strong demand, while the iPhone 8 is an update on last year's iPhone 7, which itself was similar to the iPhone 6 released in 2014. In the second drop, the phone fell directly on its front face. 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. In its drop tests, SquareTrade found the iPhone X to be "the most breakable, highest-priced, most expensive to fix iPhone ever", with screen malfunctions, swipe failures, display separation and edge scratches after 1 drop from 6 feet onto the device's side.
