Screen Issues on iPhone X Confirmed By Apple


After going through a rigorous nine point test, which included various drops, tumbles, and dunks, to evaluate its durability and repairability, iPhone X had an average score of 90 out of 100, which is decidedly on the higher end of the rankings.

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 iPhone X's fragility, along with Apple's $549 fee for repairs, make it the definition of a high-risk phone".

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

So just how durable is the glass on the iPhone X?

A drop on the phone's corner gave it only minor scratches, while a drop on the phone's front display produced a visible, but small glass fracture on the device's top-left side. Once I turned off the screen, I noticed an additional hairline fracture running from the bottom left where the second scuff was nearly to the top of the phone.

He said the search operation led to a gunbattle after the militants fired towards the security forces' positions. Identified as Sham Sundar he was killed during an encounter between government forces and militants.

"You'd expect there to be a high price to pay for a lovely 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.

Another drop (of a fresh, undamaged iPhone X) cracked the front and back, but also damaged Face ID and stopped the new home screen gestures from working, making it impossible to leave the app now open.

Even SquareTrade has rated it the most breakable. Although the screen was able to recognize touch through cracks suffered during the test, the "home" swipe command failed, stranding users in the app that happened to be open. That said, iPhone X managed to grab 0.93 percent of the overall market share for iPhones after the first weekend of sales, the firm found.
