Nelson found that the iPhone X was just as scratch resistant as many flagship phones.

Apple has published a new support document for the iPhone X that explains some of the benefits and risks associated with its new Super Retina display.

On the first face-down drop, the firm saw the glass front shatter, the display become unresponsive, and Face ID stopped working. When the phone was dropped from the same height from the back panel, it caused complete damage to the back glass panel.
