Apple’s latest iPhone XR gets put through its paces in the video below, will it be able to stand up to the various tests? lets find out.
“The LCD screen in the iPhone Xr has a similar level of durability as the OLED screen featured in the iPhone Xs and Xs Max. Our tests show that across the board — with both the 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,” said Jason Siciliano, vice president global creative director at SquareTrade. “The iPhone Xr does cost less than the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, and it costs less to repair as well. However, at $199 for screen repairs, and $399 for other repairs (over half the price of the phone), it still isn’t cheap to fix. That said, with the iPhone Xr, you’re getting a more affordable phone with about the same level of durability, and it costs less to repair. That’s a good deal.”
As we can see from the video the display and the back casing on the handset did not manage to withstand the tests.
