A few years ago, YouTube filled up with hundreds of videos showing iPhones bending and eventually breaking into two pieces. While no person in their right mind would want to do so, it is satisfying to know that your precious investment can undergo some rough torture if the situation demands. Therefore, every flagship smartphone has undergone the bend test to see the amount of pressure it can handle. The current talk of the town — the iPhone X, has also undergone the test and has come out with flying colours.
EverythingApplePro has done an extensive scratch and bend test of the iPhone X. They put the ultra expensive iPhone to rub its nose with items that you may or may not stuff in your pocket — stuff like screwdrivers, nails and coins — things that a ‘usual’ iPhone X owner might not keep in his/her pocket. Nonetheless, in the interest of science, the iPhone X is put to test and it performs on par with other flagship smartphones. The iPhone X may get scratched with car keys and anything more harder than that.
When it comes to the bend test, the iPhone X exceeds expectations. The previous generation iPhone 7 and the iPhone 6S were known to break into two under some considerable amount of pressure. However, all the iPhone X does is pop the edges of its sealings holding the display and the metal frame. The stainless steel frame only breaks at the point of the antenna lines. Despite that, the iPhone X keeps on working as it is intended to be.
Clearly, Apple wasn’t kidding when they said that the iPhone X is durable. The jump from aluminium alloy to stainless steel has made the iPhone stand head to head with other durable flagships. If you were remotely worried about the iPhone X’s durability, then you can take a sigh of relief and use it carefree.
