Drop test confirms Apple totally lied about the glass back on the iPhone 8 (VIDEO)




When Apple unveiled the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X during its big September press conference a couple of weeks ago, the company said the glass backs on the phones is the strongest glass ever to be used on a smartphone. There’s no reason to beat around the bush: that was a lie. Apple has been known to bend and stretch the truth from time to time, and the company’s executives are nothing if not dramatic while unveiling new products. But the claim that the glass back on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X is the strongest ever isn’t just dramatic, it’s disingenuous.

Don’t believe us? Let’s check out a brand new test that utilized a professional drop test machine.
The glass backs on Apple’s new 2017 iPhone lineup might be really strong. They might even have a copper-infused layer like Apple said on stage earlier this month. But the claim that these phones contain the strongest glass ever to be used on a smartphone is flat-out ridiculous.

YouTuber PhoneBuff has access to a professional drop test machine that he uses each time a major smartphone is released. And this past Friday when the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were released, he fired it up. Since Samsung beat Apple to the punch with all-glass smartphone backs, PhoneBuff pitted the new iPhone 8 Plus against its top rival from Samsung, the Galaxy Note 8?

Both phones did horribly.

The video begins with a back-down drop test (start watching at 1:29 if you want to skip a really long ad) with both phones. And wouldn’t you know it… the backs on both phones were smashed. After the first drop. Apple’s strongest glass ever couldn’t even survive a single drop without shattering.
