IPhone X Beaten by Samsung, LG in Consumer Tests

IPhone X Beaten by Samsung, LG in Consumer Tests

For that quick test, we used our custom-designed Drop Tower and let the phone fall on its front, back, and two different corners.

The testing outfit subjected several iPhone X units to its "tumble drum".

However, using a tumbling machine, a rotating chamber that repeatedly drops a phone from a height of about 2.5 feet, caused issues. After going through 100 drops, the glass back suffered major damage.

The goal of all that repetition is to expose the phone to impacts from a wide variety of angles. The other two units reported of display break down after the first 50 falls only.

Three samples of the iPhone X were tested. For example, our testers also reported broken displays and back panels when they tumbled Samsung's almost all-glass Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones.

However, the handset did make the firm's top ten recommended phones - although owners were advised to use a case. Apple's iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8, which were released in September, came third and fourth.

The robot browses the internet, takes pictures, uses Global Positioning System navigation, and, of course, makes phone calls.

It seemed like Apple was proud of the technology that they had incorporated in the phone.

Based on the company's testing, the good points of the iPhone X include its superb camera, which is still rated as one of the best of the best in the game.

Each December, YouTube releases a "Rewind" video recapping the year in video. Every minute, more than 400 hours of video are shared on YouTube .

"If not for the damage in that durability test, the iPhone X would have come in ahead of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus", Richard Fisco, the lead smartphone tester of Consumer Reports, says.

Coming to the shortcomings, the iPhone X turned out to be very fragile. The phone was examined right afterward, as well as one, two, and three days later, and continued to work.

iPhone X also ranked a bit lower on Consumer Reports' top smartphones list than Samsung's S8, S8+, and Note 8.

The battery tests of the handset also set the phone's screen to 100% brightness - whereas the screen is set to auto dim to conserve battery life.

While the iPhone X did well on scratch tests and water resistance tests, it did not fare well in terms of battery life.

The Galaxy S8 came top with 82 points, and the Galaxy S8 Plus was runner-up with 81 points.

While for many people 19.5 hours is enough to get them through the day, it's still shorter than the majority of the 38 smartphones we recommend.

'If you want to save even more money, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus remain viable options, ' it said.

Despite the fact that this testing method may not match what Apple rates each iPhone, this still stands as a fair comparison of the differences in battery life, as long as the testing method is the same.
