We already know. We have known since the first rumors began to emerge. We already knew when Apple announced them, and we even knew when the company stated that the glass of 8/8 Plus iPhones the “toughest ever used on a smartphone”. Yes, we always knew that these would be devices, as a rule, more fragile than their aluminum predecessors.
At the time of the launch of the devices, we have already shown some drop tests confirming our suspicions. Now a few more videos arrive to reinforce this understanding and help us conform to the inevitable fact: these are gadgets made for living in cases if you don't want to live a life of constant stress and worry, that is.
This video above the Squaretrade It's the best of them because, in addition to testing both the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in a series of crash situations, it also throws the Galaxy Note8 on the cake (if you're finding the number of comparisons of the iPhone 8 to Note8 exaggerated today, I I will understand).
This way, we can be even sadder that basically all Contemporary smartphones (Moto Z Force, you stay out of this) are walking a never-ending path of frailty and “disposability” that is, at least until a new Nikola Tesla finds a way to enable wireless charging across the metal.
In the tests, the three devices had their front and rear glass shattered, cracked or cracked in some way. all the lightest situations are the most drastic.
Although iPhones were relatively more destroyed after the whole ordeal, they received lower “breakability” rates than Note8 (67 for iPhone 8, 74 for 8 Plus and 80 for Samsung's device) for one simple reason: while Ma's smartphones continued to work after the crashes, the phablet South Korean simply crashed after all, losing many points.
This other video from the channel TechRaxSo the iPhone 8 Plus versus 7 Plus is good, you can already imagine the result.
While the front window suffered equally on both devices, the newer device suffered equally disastrous damage to the back and, considering that the cost of repairing the back of the iPhones 8/8 Plus is more than three times higher than that for Replace the front panel, maybe this is the final argument to convince you to put a case on your phone. Design cries, but peace of mind thanks.
