Apple says the glbad on the model new iPhone X, which covers the entrance of again of the cellphone, is the “most durable glbad ever in a smartphone.” This is perhaps true. But it is nonetheless glbad.

Now, it is unknown simply how many individuals are dropping their unprotected telephones, however it’s actually occurring and may underscore the straightforward level that your practically all-glbad iPhone X is perhaps a gleaming, futuristic trying gadget, however that makes it extra fragile than early variations of the iPhone. SquareTrade, a guaranty firm, filmed their drop and tumbling exams to point out the iPhone X was the “most breakable” and “most expensive to repair iPhone” ever.
Accidental drops aren’t lined underneath Apple’s guarantee program, so only a display restore will price a whopping $249. And in case your cellphone ought to incur extra injury from a fall, Apple is charging $549 — the price of an iPhone 7.
But it isn’t as if Apple has a scheme to provide deliberately extra fragile telephones to rake in additional dough from restore prices. Its final three iPhones — the 7,eight, and X — are all water and mud resistant (not waterproof, although). This water resistance ranking, based on MacRumors, means the iPhone X can deal with immersion in three.three ft of water for as much as 30 minutes.
Your iPhone may not survive each journey right into a pool, however a minimum of many unintended drops have a available resolution: Cases.
I don’t get people who find themselves complaining about their smashed #iPhoneX GET A SCREEN PROTECTOR & A CASE. ABSOLUTE MORONS.
