IPhone 8 and Samsung S8 experienced endurance

IPhone 8 and Samsung S8 experienced endurance”

That's a bit surprising considering Apple's stellar iPhone memory management, and something that will be fixed in the near future.

The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X all share the same powerful A11 Bionic chip that scores as high as a 2017 MacBook Pro in benchmark tests. However, with the addition of the feature comes the added risk of breakage, as glass backs are much more fragile compared to the aluminum ones of previous iPhones. And while we certainly can't use heavy-duty machinery as an indication of how our devices might fall in the real-world, these tests ultimately solidify one reality we all have to come terms with: Apple's new iPhones (including iPhone 8 and moving forward) are more susceptible to damage now than ever before, and that's nearly entirely due to their glass-sandwich construction, which enables wireless charging by employing a durable sheet of glass on the back-side. We're sure that with the glass back design, many are questioning just how durable it is, although recent scratch tests have shown that it does hold up pretty well.

In this case, it seems neither phone survived the drop test, with both handsets having their glass backs shattered. SquareTrade gave the iPhone 8 a breakability score of 67 and the iPhone 8 Plus a score of 74, on a scale of 1 to 100 where 100 is the most breakable.

Samsung has recently rolled out updates for its old devices namely Galaxy S5 Mini, Galaxy A8, Galaxy J2, etc. and today AT&T has introduced a new update for Samsung's latest Flagship called as the Galaxy Note 8. The curved back of the Galaxy Note 8 heightened the risk of the glass back shattering when the smartphone falls on its side.

Experts also found that the metal edging protects iPhone smartphone better. Here, the Galaxy Note 8 takes the lead thanks to its extra RAM.
