The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are only just available to consumers, but early buyers already put the new devices through the ring.
During the unveiling of the devices, Apple appealed that the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max & # 39; the most sustainable smartphone glass in the world & # 39; and YouTube TechSmartt puts the claim to the test with a series of drop tests.
The first is what TechSmartt calls the pocket drop test. During this test, they drop the iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max from the bag height. Perhaps not surprisingly, all three devices are unharmed after this test.
The main height test is then carried out, with all three devices falling at the same height as when you were telephoning. During this test the iPhone X gets a nice gap on the screen, while the iPhone XS almost flawlessly comes out and the iPhone XS Max is only damaged along the top.
Last but not least is a 10 foot drop for each device. For the iPhone X, the rear glass breaks the impact, while the iPhone XS appears again without tearing. Meanwhile, the iPhone XS Max screen breaks when it hits the concrete at first glance, so the display itself does not function properly.
All in all, drop-testing is rather arbitrary to see how sustainable smartphones are, although they do offer good entertainment. Of course, if you drop an iPhone on the floor, there are a lot of variables, ranging from how the device hits the ground to the height and angle of the impact, and more.
Whether Apple & # 39; s & # 39; s most sustainable glass in the world & # 39; -Claim is correct is hard to confirm. Although this drop test seems to suggest a number of improvements, the results will of course vary enormously in real world use. Furthermore, there will always be a difference between the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch models because of the added weight of the latter.
