Consumer Reports Ranks iPhone X Below iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 [Video]

Posted by · 12737 views · Translate

Consumer Reports has posted its final iPhone X test results which score Apple's flagship device just under the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

"The iPhone X is an innovative device with a fantastic camera and beautiful display, but other phones are tougher and can operate longer on a charge," says Consumer Reports. The cheaper iPhone 8 and 8 Plus both proved more durable than the iPhone X in drop and fumble tests.

“If not for the damage in that durability test, the iPhone X would have come in ahead of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus,” says Richard Fisco, head of smartphone testing at CR.

The iPhone X was also ranked below Samsung's flagship devices, primarily due to battery life.

Taken as a complete package, this phone ranked a bit lower than Samsung’s S8, S8+, and Note8, mainly because of their superior battery life. But many longtime iPhone users aren’t interested in switching to Android, so the real question for them is whether to save a few bucks—or, actually, a couple hundred—and go with an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus instead.

Comparing the X to the 8 Plus the 8 Plus’s screen looks much clearer and better to read then the X I also prefer the button then no button

laughing with my iPhone X. as Tech Jedi said above.. performance, screen quality, camera quality, and innovation would be more better benchmark than durability. i don't know about iphone 8 battery life, but my X is performing better battery life than my 7 plus as i remember.

It's hurts doesn't it to spend all that money only to find out that you may have the looks of the future but fail to stand up to day to day abuse. Ignorant comments as usual. Don't feel so bad you can always upgrade next year when things get better. Hope they charge 1500 next time though.
