Consumer Reports has tested the iPhone X and the results are mixed. The phone has the best camera – both still images and video – that has ever tested CR . The screen also received good grades and the testers were generally happy with the Face ID (the lack of a Home button required only a short setup time).

But the phone is pretty fragile. Of the three units tested, two screens failed after 50 revolutions in the tumbler – this is a $ 280 repair right there. The third unit was "clearly" cracked. In his favor, the iPhone X went well on the drop test – 5ft falls on concrete. And Samsung's All-Glass Galaxy S8 phones did not get any better.

  Consumer Report: iPhone X has a great camera, but the end result is under Galaxy S8

Battery life also turned out better – under test, the X battery lasted 19.5 hours, while the iPhone 8 Plus for 21 hours ran. The Galaxy S8 and S8 + lasted 26 hours. In fact, the battery life of the iPhone X is worse than that of the 38 phones CR .

If you like the $ 1,000 price tag, the iPhone X offers a star camera and points to the future of Apple design. But if you save money or for something more durable, the iPhone 8 Duo (even the iPhone 7) are a solid option.

The fragile glass really hurt the X in the tests. This is not the first test that highlights how easy it is to crack all that glass or damage the screen. All in all, the iPhone X scored lower than the Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8 + and the Note8.
