The iPhone X won't bend in your super skinny jeans

Apple iPhone X drop test

That phone not only survived drops but we have dropped one while in a cold run, watching it bounce as it hit the ground and drag a few feet before it came to a stop.

Apple Inc's (O:) new flagship iPhone X makes the company more money per phone than its iPhone 8 model, according to an analysis, which found the iPhone X's flashier parts cost Apple 25 percent more than the iPhone 8, but that it retailed 43 percent higher.

Videos of various iPhone X drop-tests have been hitting the web since the new smartphone went on sale last week.

That is largely because the iPhone 8 uses older LCD technology, while the iPhone X uses what is called "Super AMOLED" technology, which allows for more vivid colors and a thinner overall design. Apple is now offering 30-minute online training sessions to iPhone X customers to help them get the most out of their new smartphone.

Both the Pixel 2 XL and the iPhone X ditched traditional LCD technology for OLED displays.

The handset is described as "incredibly solid" after the customary series of torture tests, with premium stainless steel sides and a mostly glass construction that's impervious to daily scratches. The results were surprised that the unlocking of the phone was not regular after the test.

Side and Back Drop Tests: Remarkably, the side drop did the most internal damage to the phone. On the first face-down drop, the firm saw the glass front shatter, the display become unresponsive, and Face ID stopped working. Meanwhile, the back drop completely shattered the back panel leaving loose shards of glass, making it hard to hold. A cracked iPhone X screen will set you back $279.

Tumble Test:Sixty seconds in the Tumble Bot was no friend to the iPhone X either.

It may cost a fortune, but there's no denying that the iPhone X is jaw-droppingly pretty.

The fact that the new iPhone can take damage so easily is not a good sign when it is priced at a thousand dollars and up. In other words, Apple isn't just competing against rivals for market share, it's competing against itself. Do you buy accidental damage insurance on your smartphones?
