Here's why iPhone 8 is a better choice than iPhone X

Here's why iPhone 8 is a better choice than iPhone X

"If not for the damage in that durability test, the iPhone X would have come in ahead of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus", says Richard Fisco, head of smartphone testing at CR. The phones are checked for damage after 50 drops and then again after 100. And while the popular publication called the Apple OLED flagship an "innovative device with a fantastic camera and attractive display", the iPhone X also lost to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in a full comparison.

We tumbled three samples of the iPhone X. The first was fine after 50 drops, but the glass on the back was significantly cracked after 100.

The foldable iPhone patent was granted along with 50 others, including patents for a magnetic iPad stand, a system for sensing fingers and hands hovering over a device display, and AirPod earbuds equipped with biometric sensors that can measure galvanic skin response and cardiac signals.

Durability is something to think about if you're considering a purchase of the iPhone X. The phone isn't just expensive to buy; it's also unusually pricey to fix. Though the front glass didn't crack, several bright green bars stretched across the screens from top to bottom. That device isn't thought to be one of Samsung's flagship Galaxy phones, but at the right price it could find a market niche from which its arch-rival Apple is missing.

Tumble tests don't get a lot of weight when we calculate a phone's Overall Score.

It raised questions over the iPhone X's battery life and durability, saying 'The iPhone X is an innovative device with a fantastic camera and handsome display, but other phones are tougher and can operate longer on a charge'.

Still, the outlet noted that the iPhone X's rear camera is the "highest-rated smartphone camera" it has ever tested.

On Tuesday, the publication published its results from testing the iPhone X's display, camera, battery life, and durability. If you use any phone's auto, or adaptive, brightness, the battery should last longer. It does not have the size or the features or the battery life but at $1000 dollars, the iPhone X is a vulnerable phone. The iPhone X managed to last for 19.5 hours, as opposed to iPhone 8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S8 that lasted for 21 hours and 26 hours respectively.

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. The iPhone X performed well in the initial drop tests, but it didn't fare so well after more extensive testing. It is notable that iPhone X is lagging behind its own counterparts from Apple, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. In our tests, the iPhone 7's battery lasted 18.5 hours.
