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

07 November 2017

Hit the jump for the CNET's drop test on the iPhone X, and remember, It's not your phone being dropped.

In addition to the iPhone X's more limited availability at launch (20 cities' retail stores even sold out by Sunday), Localytics cautions that historical comparisons may not be the best way to analyze the new device's popularity. You just need to spend $999 for an iPhone X but a small drop will cause you a heavy financial loss.

Saudi Arabia has intercepted a ballistic missile fired across the border from Yemen targeting the King Khaled airport in Riyadh. It was shot down by Saudi air defence forces, with fragments of the missile landing in an uninhabited area north of the capital.

The handset is described as "incredibly solid" after the customary series of torture tests, with premium stainless steel sides and a mostly glass construction that's impervious to daily scratches. In the second drop, the phone fell directly on its front face. Meanwhile, the back drop completely shattered the back panel leaving loose shards of glass, making it hard to hold.

A cracked iPhone X screen will set you back $279. 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. Whether it's the iPhone 4 or the iPhone 5s, there is history in this company with cracked screens and higher fix costs.

YouTubers specialising in gadget abuse have subjected Apple's £1000 iPhone to a range of durability tests and found it to be on par with other well-made high-end smartphones.
