Apple's iPhone X will Return an Estimated 64% Gross Margin

iPhone X Is the 'Most Breakable Ever' According to Test

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

With the launch of the new Apple iPhone X three days ago, people have lined up as usual to get their hands on one, including all of the groups who can't wait to simply throw it at the ground, hit it with a hammer or let Fido get his chops on it.

That's why Apple published a helpful video on Friday going over some of the basics on how to use the iPhone X. Apple also includes some pointers in its Tips app.

Next year, Kuo sees Apple making the stainless steel band on its premium phone out of more than the four parts it used for the iPhone X. This could improve data transmission on the device as well as enhance its design. "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". It emerged with more cracks erupting across both sides of the device.

Dunk Test: The iPhone X faired similar to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models, surviving 30 minutes under five feet of water with some audio muffling during playback.

New World of Warcraft expansion Battle for Azeroth announced
We also saw the expansion's new cinematic introduction, which was as ugly and rubbish as they always are for World of Warcraft . There's no timeframe for launch, but the experience should be welcome from WoW players pining for the old days.

Side and Back Drop Tests: Remarkably, the side drop did the most internal damage to the phone. The back drop resulted in significant shattering of the back panel, including shards of glass, according to 9to5Mac.

Overall, Jerry's impressed with the iPhone X's durability even though the phone has a fragile glass OLED display and back. Whether it's the iPhone 4 or the iPhone 5s, there is history in this company with cracked screens and higher fix costs. Or in other words, if you crack the back of your iPhone X it will cost $549 for Apple to fix it.

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.

It's obviously always wise to do everything in your power to protect an expensive, high-end mobile device from all types of damage, but unfortunately the iPhone X is special in a number of anxiety-enhancing ways. A smile can be found on the faces of iPhone droppers every time a screen goes uncracked, spurning the hefty fix fee or, worse yet, the looming expense of buying another smartphone.
