The iPhone X is manufactured a little differently than the previous iPhone 8 and 8 plus. It has a larger edge-to-edge OLED display. Though the previous iPhones were built with a combination of glass and aluminum, the iPhone X is primarily covered in glass and stainless steel. Adapting this glass front-back design allowed the iPhone X to offer wireless charging. Apple claims this glass design to be more durable. Still, it is glass, hence it needs protection, so you need an Apple Tempered Glass Protector to keep the display guarded. The new iPhone X has an IP67 rating, so it is splash, water, and dust resistant. To learn more about how iPhone X performs in speed, durability, drop, and water test, check out MK Mobiles’ complete breakdown below:
iPhone X Speed Tests
Inside the iPhone X is an Apple A11 Bionic chipset and a powerful 3GB of RAM. The iPhone X tends to open some apps faster than other phones and even the previous iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
In a routine speed test, iPhone X opened apps in different order simultaneously: Clock, Snapchat, Instagram, Camera, Google Maps, Photoshop, Minecraft, Super Mario Run, and Asphalt 8 Airborne.
Though it takes some time to reload some of the apps that were opened before.
For the startup speed test, the iPhone X powers up seconds faster than the android phones. However, people rarely switch off their smartphones, so it is not a considerable factor.
iPhone X Durability Test
We did a scratch test on the iPhone X. Depending on the Mohs scale of hardness the iPhone X Display scratched at level 6 and a deeper groove at level 7. So, you should be concerned about keeping the display safe. Though the display is durable enough as Apple claims, but it may get scratched or damaged. So, it’s better to use the Apple Tempered Glass Screen.
The Apple Tempered Glass Screen Protector covers the metal earpiece grill inside the notch.
The rear camera made of sapphire glass, so it is more exposed to scratches. But do not worry camera lens glass protector of the iPhone X is also available at MK Mobiles. It covers the glass lens completely and does not affect the picture quality at all.
While bend test on the iPhone X we noticed a minor flex to the body as the frame bent. But there was not any screen separation or body damage due to the Apple Tempered Glass Screen Protector apply. Though the bending was not so easy with the apple temper glass screen on the iPhone X. However, the results are pretty good that the apple tempered glass screen protector enhances the durability of the iPhone X display and body.

iPhone X Drop Tests
As we know that the front and the back of the iPhone X enfolds in a durable material with Corning Gorilla Glass. And the glass material used in the iPhone X supposed to be stronger than Gorilla Glass 5.
What made this test a bit difficult is the cost of repairing parts of the iPhone X being sky-high.
For example: if you need to replace the shattered glass on the back of the iPhone X and you do not have an AppleCare+ warranty, then the cost will leave you with a painful headache. The screen repair is slightly bearable through Apple’s retail stores but buying a replacement screen for iPhone X online is not an easy task. So, we recommend putting the apple tempered glass screen protector on the iPhone X as soon as possible.
We did the drop test after putting the apple-tempered glass protector to see how well it would perform. When the iPhone X dropped from waist height on the back side, it did not cause any scratches. At the head height, the phone still survived with mild scratches on the apple-tempered glass screen. So, with the apple tempered glass screen protector on it would take a lot of effort to get the iPhone X to shatter.

But still, we had to see whether if the apple tempered glass screen protector works exactly as it claims.
Well, the apple-tempered glass screen protector guarded the front-facing camera and the display as it should. So, we have come to the verdict. That putting on the tempered glass screen protector on the iPhone X is the best and essential. Well, we thoroughly convinced that the apple-tempered glass screen is the most durable.
