That phone not only survived drops but we have dropped one while in a cold run, watching it bounce as it hit the ground and drag a few feet before it came to a stop. "With the iPhone X, that is no longer the case", according to the New York Times.
It wouldn't really feel like an Apple product launch if there wasn't some sort of technical issue for users to contend with and the release of the new iPhone X hasn't broken tradition.
If hearing that the iPhone X's $279 out of warranty screen replacement, or worse, it $550 back glass replacement (yes, $550!) doesn't make you shudder at the thought of leaving your phone bare, then you should take a look at CNET who tested dropping the iPhone from different angles. "Despite Apple's claims that their glass is the most durable ever in a smartphone, the iPhone X is the most breakable iPhone we've ever tested".
Side and Back Drop Tests: Remarkably, the side drop did the most internal damage to the phone.
And here's the quoted test results that SquareTrade sent. It emerged with more cracks erupting across both sides of the device. For the water dunk test, in which the phone was placed somewhat deep under water for 30 minutes, the phone was somewhat unaffected aside from a little audio muffling.
The iPhone X has a giant screen, Face ID and no home button.

The boy then starting driving on Interstate 80, where a trooper motioned for the boy to stop as he pulled alongside him. Other motorists spotted him October 16 on Interstate 90 near West 117th Street after taking his mother's vehicle .
Tumble Test:Sixty seconds in the Tumble Bot was no friend to the iPhone X either.
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.
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.
After all was said and done, SquareTrade gave it a "Breakability Score" of 90 (presumably out of 100), meaning it's a "High Risk" of shattering or breaking.
Of course, SquareTrade offers up insurance plans which are often cheaper than plans you may be able to get through your carrier. But for the iPhone X, Apple's fix bills are more expensive than ever.
So, the conclusion over this reveals that buying an iPhone would be easy for you.
