Today is the official launch day of the 8/8 Plus iPhones and even though the excitement is much lower than in previous years because of the iPhone X, these new handsets came with a different glass finish and some internal enhancements. Because of this, they are already coming to the test and more tests with the new devices and this is what we will see in this article!
With the glass finish to allow wireless charging, one of the questions that comes to mind: how durable are new gadgets? For this, the YouTuber JerryRigEverything made some of its famous tests with the iPhone 8 to check its prone to scratching, screen resistance to flame and whether it would bend easily.
As you can see, the glass of the device can withstand sharp objects that could be in pockets, such as keys and coins, as well as holding a switchblade. In the flame resistance test, the screen also managed to do well.
In the infamous #bendgate, the iPhone 8 fared much better than its predecessor. Although neither of them actually buckled, last year's model easily separated the glass from the rest of the body and seemed to compromise the sealing that makes the device waterproof; This year, there is definitely no flexibility, which is great!
No drop testing has yet emerged on the Internet, but we will certainly be alert when actually testing what Apple has called "the most durable glass on the market." Let's see, no!
This year, we follow the unbridled leaks of the new appliances. By that time, even before the iPhones were revealed, the internet already had the numbers of benchmarks of devices. And now the real numbers have been revealed, which basically confirm that the impressive A11 Bionic chip!
A publication of Tom’s Guide showed that the iPhone 8 already outperforms the MacBook Pro with Intel Core i5 processor, as has been commented in tests prior to the announcement of the devices.
Let's start with Geekbench 4, which measures overall performance. In the multicore From this test, the iPhone 8 reached 10,170. This is 54% faster than the result of Samsung Galaxy Note8 [6,564] currently the fastest Android phone. The iPhone 8 even eliminated the score of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with the latest generation Core i5 processor, which scored 9,213.
In the same test, some real-time tasks were performed, such as placing a 2-minute 4K video to render. Basically, the iPhone 8 ended in 42 seconds, while the Note8 took 3 minutes and the S8 + more than 4 minutes. What a difference!
In order for us to really see the difference in speed, the YouTuber MadMatt made a video doing some tasks with an iPhone 8 and an iPhone 7. Check the result below:

Friends, it seems that this “most durable glass on the market” may not be able to cope with the most clumsy or unlucky ones that leave their appliances on the floor. Anyway, the screen until it resisted a lot, no?
