Those Apple folks have got to be some of the slyest bastards in the world. They bombard you with all these nerdy and ultimately useless features (looking at you, facial recognition) while downgrading the important things such as durability.
So it should come as absolutely no surprise that the iPhone X, of course, is the most breakable iPhone. Like, ever.
SquareTrade, a company that provides extended warranties for electronic devices, conducted several breakability tests on the iPhone X, and found that its glass back and lack of a home button make it “the most breakable iPhone ever.” So if you love spending hundreds of dollars per year on new phone screens, then the iPhone x is for you!
via Mac Rumors:
Not only did the iPhone X’s glass shatter when dropped on its front and back from a height of six feet, but the display also malfunctioned. Keep in mind that pocket height for most people is about three feet.
SquareTrade is naturally using the opportunity to push its two-year smartphone protection plan, which was recently reduced to $129 plus a $99 deductible for most claims, in the United States.The plan covers cracked screens, liquid damage, battery failure, Lightning connector failure, and speaker failure. It doesn’t cover loss or theft.
SquareTrade customers now have an in-home repair option with a lower $25 deductible to fix cracked screens. The service is currently available in more than 700 cities across the United States, with new cities added monthly.
The iPhone X, Apple’s next generation of the iPhone, sports an astonishing A11 Bionic processing chip, a brand new all-glass design, wireless charging, and the world’s best operating system, iOS 11. The phone also features an HD Retina display, 12 MP rear camera with improved sensors, and a 7 MP front camera, this iteration of the iPhone is already way better than the iPhone 7.
Packed in with an A11 Bionic processing chip, 12 MP rear camera, and Face ID, which allows users to use their face as their passcode; allowing seamless and tough protection for their phones. Also coming with the iPhone X will be new Augmented Reality features, allowing users to bring to life epic scenes through their iPhone X, and the exclusive “Animojis”, that allow emojis to recreate your facial reactions for 3D animated emojis.
