We already broke the iPhone X (The 3:59, Ep. 311)

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

Apple gave a disclaimer over the Super Retina Display or the OLED display that color and hue shifting can be a usual one in this.

Burn-in is a common problem with OLEDs and happens with long-term use, particularly around elements of the screen that are constantly lit. And today, we got a hint about one of the improvements Apple will make in 2018.

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. 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.

The new iPhone X has been branded as the "most breakable, highest-priced, most expensive to fix iPhone ever" by a smartphone insurance company after performing a series of drop tests on Apple's $999 handset.

The least amount of damage occured when the phone was dropped directly on its side.




The side drop was considered the most damaging internally, while the exterior of the phone remained mostly intact.

Really, it should come as no surprise that phones made from glass are likely to break when dropped from several feet onto a hard surface.

Fellow experienced phone wrecker Zack Nelson at the JerryRigEverything channel, also put the iPhone X through its paces, this time carrying out a scratch test will all manner of tools, notably a Stanley-style knife. The back drop resulted in significant shattering of the back panel, including shards of glass, according to 9to5Mac. And the drop from the edge also caused physical and functional damage to the smartphone. So far it's performing well in early tests.

The extended warranty service provider deems the iPhone X an overall "high risk" in breakability, awarding it 90 points on a scale where 100 is the worst possible score.

Face Down Drop Test: On its first drop, SquareTrade saw the iPhone X shatter, its screen become unresponsive and its widely touted facial recognition feature fail completely. 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.
