The launch of the new smartphones always can't escape the fate of being dropped via drop tests, and according to the latest test results of SquareTrade, a well-known warranty provider, Apple's low-priced iPhone XR is as breakable as the high-end iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.


Test results show that, like the OLED iPhone XS with a glass body, the iPhone XR's LCD display with aluminum frame glass back panel are severely damaged when dropped on a hard surface. In the "face-down" drop test, the iPhone XR's LCD display breaks after the first fall, as it was the case when iPhone XS screen cracks during the previous drop test.

However, The iPhone XR successfully passed the bending test and beat the 5.8-inch iPhone XS, which is comparable to the 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max. The iPhone XR bent under 260 pounds of pressure, but it doesn't break. It still works like the iPhone XS Max, whereas the iPhone XS got damaged under 250 pounds of pressure.

The iPhone XR's LCD screen has similar durability to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max OLED screens. Jason Siciliano, global creative director of SquareTrade: "Our tests show that across the board - with both LCD and OLED screens - the all-glass designs of all three new iPhones are susceptible to cracking from drops, which is the most common cause of damage".
