The iPhone Xr is the cheapest Apple smartphone in 2018. It does not mean that it is cheap – but is it hardy? JerryRigEverything has tested it and we already know how the iPhone Xr will endure the hardships of everyday use.
iPhone Xr not so long ago got to Poland in the presale. It's already known and loved Zack from the JerryRigEverything channel, which checked how resistant the cheapest of this year's iPhones got.
The screen is quite scratch resistant
We do not use anything on the smartphone as often as the display, and with everyday use scratches appear on it. How did the glass on the screen of the iPhone Xr come out in the hardness test? Yes, how should the tempered glass fall – surrendered between the 6th and 7th point of the Mohs scale, i.e. exactly where it must have been. We can put stories about the most scratch-resistant glass in the history of smartphones between fairy tales . A slight impression on him made a lighter flame, but let's agree – it's rather an extreme situation. What about the rest of the housing? The frame that connects the glass panes (in contrast to the more expensive models made of aluminum, not stainless steel) obviously draws under the blade, as if wearing in one pocket with keys will end up with unsightly drooling – sooner or later. Disappointment comes in the matter of the glass protecting the camera. The theory should be drawn by the eighth, meanwhile already 6 in the aforementioned scale leaves clear traces. Poorly, because even if we do not feel it every day, expectations were different – it is not sapphire glass .
Will it bend?
We all remember the affair with Apple's curved smartphones. Since then, the company has made considerable progress in this matter and the next models were devoid of this problem. What about the iPhone Xr? Tests have proven that this calmly withstands the attempts to break in the fingers – we can be so calm that nothing in his pocket will happen. So you can say that the iPhone Xr was built like a flagship and at least in this matter its price remains justified. Is this also in other respects? Well – for this question, everyone has to answer for themselves, and I will withhold my opinion until the smartphone reaches my hands for a long time. Source
