Your New iPhone X Is One of the Most Fragile Smartphones Ever

It's now safe to say you can take on any challenge if you manage not to break your new iPhone X, Apple's newest iteration featuring FaceID and a glass OLED screen void of the home button we've all come to know and love.

SquareTrade, the insurance company which carried out the tests, dropped several iPhone Xs from six feet. The display reached near textbook flawless calibration and performance. You can read the full report at the link below!

In the hours and days following the retail availability of the eagerly-anticipated iPhone X, it's easy to feel like Apple played us.

Trump Praised the North Koreans as "Great People"
Military officials would be happy to join 'the intelligence community to address these issues in a classified briefing, ' he said. He also singled out trade, which he said had been "badly handled" in the region for years.

However, Apple also quietly released a support document on Friday that states the iPhone X display could suffer from color shifts and screen burn-in over time.

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. It emerged with more cracks erupting across both sides of the device. SquareTrade has been putting the latest phones through their paces over the past couple years.

The side drop was considered the most damaging internally, while the exterior of the phone remained mostly intact. While the outside of the phone only suffered cosmetic damage, the screen was rendered inoperable.

Matt Duchene to Senators, Kyle Turris to Predators in Three-Team Trade
Hammond, 29, has spent the season with the AHL Belleville Senators and has a 2.21 goals-against average and a.925 save percentage. Colorado entered Sunday 8-5-0 after finishing with just 48 points last season, the fewest by a non-expansion team since 1998-99.

Repairability: SquareTrade's Master Technician noted that the iPhone X has a thinner, more costly OLED screen that's more expensive to replace, a smaller logic board, multiple cables, and a split battery that's more hard to remove.

And here's the quoted test results that SquareTrade sent. All of which may be why Apple is charging a whopping $279 for front screen replacement and $549 for other repairs. 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.

Apple has had ongoing difficulty with keeping glass intact (we're looking at you, iPhone 4), so the scratch test proved they're making progress, but your mileage may vary.
