See The Toughest Phones Currently Available – Nokia is Missing.

Spending over $700 on a phone and it dropped from just a foot to a concrete, only to discover that your money is gone within a second. What simply comes to your mind is that, you have been scammed.

The guys at TomsGuide put 12 phones to test to determine toughness of some phones, that is which one is the strongest and the weakest.

To achieve this, they dropped it from both 4 and 6 feet onto wood and concrete.

Each drop was worth a maximum of 5 points and the more severe the damage per drop was, the more points were deducted. They also dropped them from 4 feet into a water-filled toilet.

And behold, here are their results and conclusions:

  1. Motorola Moto Z2 Force – Toughness score: 8.5/10 — It survived dops from 6 feet onto concrete, with barely a scratch.
  2. LG X Venture – Toughness score: 6.6/10 — Made it through all of the 4-foot drops, but gave up after the 6-foot drop.
  3. Apple iPhone X – Toughness score: 6.2/10 — Survived both 4- and 6-foot drops on its face onto a wood surface, but cracked face-first from 4 feet onto concrete.
  4. LG V30 – Toughness score: 6/10 —A face drop from 4 feet onto concrete caused the screen to crack.
  5. Samsung Galaxy S9 – Toughness score: 6/10 — A 4-foot face drop onto concrete caused the S9’s screen to crack and a 6-foot drop onto its edge caused a bit more damage.
  6. Motorola Moto G5 Plus – Toughness score: 5.1/10
  7. Apple iPhone 8 – Toughness score: 4.9/10 —This lasted all the way up to a 5-foot face drop onto concrete, after which its screen completely gave up.
  8. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – Toughness score: 4.3/10 —a 4-foot drop on its face cracked the screen in a number of places.
  9. OnePlus 5T – Toughness score: 4.3/10
  10. Huawei Mate 10 Pro – Toughness score: 4.3/10
  11. Google Pixel 2 XL – Toughness score: 4.3/10
  12. iPhone SE – Toughness score: 3.9/10— it was rendered unusable before all of the others.

Ordinarily, one wouldn’t have imagine that the iPhone X to have outperformed the Pixel 2 XL. What do you think about these?
