The iPhone lovers must be on the eighth cloud as they have final bought their iPhone X by paying a lump sum amount. You must be loving it like your baby, isn’t? But what if it slips out of your hand! And doesn’t have a protective guard, then definitely the glass-bodied latest iPhone will be in pieces.
And let us tell you the cost to repair the latest iPhone is $279. Apple had claimed that the iPhone X wears the “most durable glass ever in a smartphone, front and back”. But all these claims now seems to be false.
A website, SquareTrade deals in trade of extended warranty for gadgets. They put gadgets through extreme tests to check out the damage occurred to the devices. They have recently tested the iPhone X where it was proved that how delicate is the iPhone X.
Check out the video below. You will see that the iPhone X is being dropped from various heights and from various angle, and each time the handset suffers external and internal damage.
In the Breakability scale, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus scored 67 and 74 respectively. The Galaxy Note 8 is a fragile one too, it scored an 80 out of 100 and the iPhone X is the most breakable handset which has scored a 90 out of 100.
In some other tests it was found out that the glass of iPhone X gets cracked easily and in two out of four tests the Face ID broke. And to repair all these you have to pay a huge $550.
So if you don’t want to save your money then either use a security guard for the latest iPhone or else get protection from SquareTrade for $130 ($30 buys you a third year).
