It has been basically the same glass used on every phone for almost 10 years! They call these things differently and there are some slight differences but they all basically have the SAME physical durability! The iPhone X is not any more or less scratch resistant than the iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5s, 6, 6s, 7, 7plus, 8, 8plus, Galaxy s3, s4, s5, s6, s7, Note 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, HTC 11, 10, M9, M8, M7, One, Sony Xperia XZ, Z5, X, Z3, Z2........ PLEASE STOP! Whether or not you get a scratch on your phone is mostly dependent on CHANCE and how you take care of it! These phones will NOT get scratched by metal of any kind (except for drill its and other metal milling tool tips made of stuff like tungsten carbide). They will get scratched by sand particles, even very tiny ones you can't see that are hidden in your pocket, or stuck on your finger tips etc. If you're not careful, and you wipe the screen while a tiny piece of hard mineral is caught between the screen and something else, it WILL SCRATCH! There is no use complaining here, the strength of the glass is known and has been known for almost a decade, your complaint does not help anyone, just get over it! Also the stainless steel band will scratch, yes, just the same as all those other apple devices made of stainless steel like iPod Touch, iPod, or the original iPhone. Stainless steel is harder than aluminum but very soft for a steel. You don't need to post your scratched iPhone to tell me that, I KNOW! Because of the mirror finish any small scratches will be very easily visible. The iPhone 4 had a brushed finish which just makes the scratches less visible, it doesn't mean it doesn't scratch, it scratches just the same. Also anodized aluminum is actually quite hard on the top layer, it's similar to sapphire, even though the hard layer is extremely thin. So yes the steel is actually more easily scratched than aluminum even though steel is harder throughout. The same goes with drops, I won't go in depth here but whether a screen (or glass back) will crack when dropped, with the glass landing first, is almost entirely dependent on CHANCE and not the durability of the glass, because they are all equally durable. When you drop on concrete floor, there are a lot of small and hard particles on the ground, if you just so happen to land in such a way that a small particle contacts the glass first and concentrates all the force of the drop onto that tiny point, the glass will crack, period. Apple claims the iPhone X to have the best glass but any difference in glass durability will be MASSIVELY OVERWHELMED by the variables in these tests you see on Youtube, even the ones where they drop the phone with a mechanical contraption. Complaining that your phone scratched or cracked is like complaining that you put your hand in a fire and it hurt, WE ALREADY KNOW! THANK YOU!
