Consumer Reports again cause controversy by scoring the iPhone X below the iPhone 8


Consumer Reports is a very famous website with product reviews. It is also quite respected in the US but in recent years has had its pluses and minuses, almost always well justified, with its reviews of Apple products. The last episode of controversy has just been published yesterday, when they have published their review of the iPhone X, very favorable, but below the iPhone 8 .
The two reasons that have argued to make that decision have been that the iPhone X is more fragile, relatively easier to break, and on the other hand that the battery life is not as good as that of the iPhone 8 Plus, and only a little better than the iPhone 8 or iPhone SE, much smaller.
The question of durability is quite questionable for several reasons; The first is that the iPhone 8 is also made of Cristal. A drop test a bit more fortunate and probably the results would not have been the same. On the other hand, Consumer Reports argue that if the iPhone X is a newer generation, they should also be more resistant, and that does not necessarily have to be the case. In fact, it has been designed practically at the same time, and both use very similar materials, like glass, equally resistant. By the way, in their tests they managed not to break the iPhone X after throwing it the first four times against a concrete floor. That is either good luck or a fairly durable smartphone to be made of glass.

As for the battery life, you may be right, but it is a reality that about 20 hours of use are more than enough to arrive without problems at the end of the day, which is the "gold standard" for most smartphone users these days. In our own tests we have been able to verify that the iPhone X can easily endure a full day of continuous use, with many Apps (games), videos, social networks, using the camera often, recording 4K video ... it is a very good autonomy, Do all that and have even more than 35% remaining battery at midnight.
For these reasons we respect the opinion of Consumer Reports but we think that sometimes they only seek to create controversy as a method to attract attention and, ultimately, increase their traffic.
