Latest outdoor tests: the iPhone XS survives several drops but simply loses the attenti of Samsung Note 9

The dropping tests of the iPhone XS / Max keep coming and we now have two of the most popular YouTubers to do them: JerryRigEverything and PheBuff video below.

Zack Nels, who runs the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel, said his own tests proved him wrg …


Nels said he was skeptical about Apple's claims about "the most sustainable glass ever in a smartphe" because he was not impressed last year with his drop test of the iPhone X.

He started with knees, as if the phe had fallen out of a bag as he got out of a car, and ended with head drops – as if he slipped during a telephe cversati or taking a picture. To add some interest, he has an unprotected phe and another in a case.

He said after the last drop that he was very surprised by the results.

It is no way, it is still alive! That is majestically impressive. Both phes [cased and uncased] are fully functial without damage.

The iPhone XS Max did less well in drop tests performed by David Rahimi, also known as PheBuff. He took the bigger model against Samsung's Note 9.

He noted that the iPhone glass was better than that of the Samsung device, but the last of the four drop tests meant that large parts of the touchscreen of the iPhone did not react, making it unusable.

His final scores were close: 37 the Note 9, 36 the iPhone XS Max.

We take our usual disclaimer that there are simply too many variables in drop tests, so the results are very meaningful – they are indicative at best. A solid scientific study would use rigs to ensure identical effects and average results of drops to multiple phes. But the pleasure is undeniable that they take a look here and here.
