A lot of people are currently flocking to Apple stores right now to get their hands on their own iPhone X before sufficient reviews are made about the product. Those who are holding off until more details come out might be patting themselves on the back right now. According to recent tests, the iPhone X is the most fragile iPhone yet, prone to easy breakage when dropped. Then again, it did score highly in display tests.

As Ars Technica notes, drop tests involving the iPhone X have confirmed that the $1,000 device is prone to cracking due to its glass body. In one test, the device was dropped from a height of three feet and was shattered on the very first try. It only escalated after that.

The tests that showcased how low the durability of the most expensive iPhone yet was done by both CNET and SquareTrade with varying results and severity of damage. In the most devastating instances, functionality was also affected.

Naturally, it would be ideal for customers to never drop their iPhone X devices, ever. However, it’s just a fact of life that a lot of users are either clumsy or careless with their phones. As such, companies should take care to make their products at least marginally resistant to even the lightest of damages. Based on the results of these tests, the iPhone X has failed in this regard.

In more positive news, tests of the product’s display have yielded positive results for the phone. The display of the iPhone X scored high in terms of brightness, clarity, and vibrancy of colors, TechCrunch reports. The camera has also gotten positive reviews, though, many critics note that Apple did nothing revolutionary with it. Instead, the cameras on the iPhone X merely hold their own against competitors.
