IPhone X first weekend adoption tops the iPhone 8 models

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

The YouTuber also put the iPhone X's screen through his usual lighter test and it survived for about 25 seconds before it stopped working altogether.

"You'd expect there to be a high price to pay for a handsome phone like the iPhone X. Unfortunately for consumers, in the end it's likely to be more than the $1,000 they've already invested." said Jason Siciliano, vice president global creative director at SquareTrade.

Another drop (of a fresh, undamaged iPhone X) cracked the front and back, but also damaged Face ID and stopped the new home screen gestures from working, making it impossible to leave the app now open.

Common sense tells us that Apple's new flagship iPhone X will make the company more money per phone than its iPhone 8 model, but how much more? "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".

This isn't a ton of extra cash for your purchases, of course, but it can actually help you play multiple free games. Xbox Live Rewards' MyVIP program offers reward credits based on the achievements you earn, among other factors.

While shipping delays may already be improving, the market share data for the first weekend may not be the best way to measure the iPhone X's adoption, but it's what's available for now. It emerged with more cracks erupting across both sides of the device.

However, many other YouTubers have been putting the new phone through its paces with varying results.

The side drop was considered the most damaging internally, while the exterior of the phone remained mostly intact.

The iPhone X has a giant screen, Face ID and no home button.

The prince was the son of Muqrin bin Abdulaziz Al Saud - who was the crown prince of Saudi Arabia from January to April in 2015.

If in a case you get your iPhone X dropped from hand and the back panel got damaged then it will cost you around 300 bucks and for the front, it's $500 without any functional fix.

Another pricey choice was the stainless steel chassis of the iPhone X, which cost $36 versus $21.50 for the aluminum housing of the iPhone 8.

Of course, SquareTrade offers up insurance plans which are often cheaper than plans you may be able to get through your carrier.

TechRax subjected his iPhone X to a solid stabbing with a kitchen knife, which the iPhone X withstood fairly easily.
