Is iPhone 8 glass as tough as Apple says? it seems that not [Video]


The iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus are the first iPhones to use glass as the material for their case from the iPhone 4s, a change of material needed to allow wireless charging , but that has made many users wonder if the new iPhones will be tough enough.
During the keynote last September 12, Apple said that the glass used to make their new iPhones is "the toughest ever used on a smartphone," but is this true?
The YouTube PhoneBuff channel tries to answer this question in a video in which they submit the iPhone 8 Plus to a series crash tests, comparing their resistance with the Galaxy Note 8 , which is also made of glass.

During the video, we can see how they fall again and again both smartphones, starting with a test in which they fall on the back, and already in that first fall, although both phones continue to work perfectly, we see that the crystal does not stand the fall and break .
From there, we see falls from different angles. When they fall on the screen, it fits the Galaxy Note 8 better, probably thanks to its rounded edges.

After these tests, both phones look quite shattered, but they remain fully functional, so the YouTuber decides to submit them to an extra test, where they drop directly on a steel platform ten times. Here, too, the Galaxy Note 8 comes out victorious, since, after the ten falls, everything is still working except the camera.
However, in the case of the iPhone 8 Plus, after five falls begin to drop some pieces of glass from the rear, and in fall number 8 your screen no longer responds.
We leave you with the video, so you can see for yourselves:

As you see, the iPhone 8 Plus glass is quite shattered, even after the first fall, so it is certainly a good idea to use cases and screensavers to protect it . To find the most suitable, do not forget to take a look at our articles of The Best Cases for iPhone 8 and 8 Plus , and The Best Screen Protectors for iPhone 8 and 8 Plus , where you can find some of the best options available in the market.
