Looks like c|net conducted a drop test on the iPhone X and the results are in. I'm not making excuses for cnet or the iPhone x. I know there's a lot of angst, arguments and issues in the SquareTrade Says iPhone X is 'Most Breakable iPhone Ever' as Glass Shatters in Series of Drop Tests thread. I think the latest article helps confirm what SquareTrade posted Article: The iPhone X cracked on the first drop Salient point: I've seen other drop test videos that showed the X not getting any damage from even higher drops, but I suspect depending on how it lands, and what it lands on has a lot to do with it. I for one ordered a case that will give me increased protection and sadly, I'll be getting AppleCare + for the phone. I think the inflated cost of repairing the X is such that getting the extended warranty is a good use of insurance.
