Apple's iPhone X may be the toughest iPhone of all time

Apple warns of iPhone X screen burn-in issues in its support document page

Apple warns of iPhone X screen burn-in issues in its support document page

All in all, it appears that the iPhone X is one of the most durable and well-made iPhones from Apple, though we still wouldn't suggest you go chucking it around or stab it with knives all the same.

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.

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

Basically, if you drop the iPhone X once, be it on its side, back or face down, you're looking at massive damage, according to SquareTrade, and absurdly costly repairs. As these technologies improve, we have seen screens and phone bodies improve with them, including curved, double sided glass (both sides of the phone) and now possibly folding screens (in the near future). Meanwhile, the back drop completely shattered the back panel leaving loose shards of glass, making it hard to hold.

Kremlin says Russian Federation not accused in USA case against ex-Trump aides
Court documents describe several emails between Papadopoulos and top campaign officials for now-President Donald Trump. After entering his guilty plea he was ordered not to contact other Trump officials and prohibited from foreign travel.

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.

In the document, Apple is admitting that the the iPhone X display is not immune to color shift or screen burn-in, two issues the Google Pixel 2 XL is being roasted for.

In its full teardown of the iPhone X, iFixit found the device to be drastically reconfigured inside to maximize performance in the smallest space possible. Compare that with the iPhone 8's rating of 67 earlier this year, and it seems that Apple's mandate to innovate each device comes at the cost of structural integrity.

SquareTrade's iPhone X Breakability Test results. 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. That said, it could be that the iPhone X is one expensive accident waiting to happen. Do you buy accidental damage insurance on your smartphones?
