Some may be disappointed to find out that the new iPhone X was listed after Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8.

While the phone made Consumer Reports' list of top 10 smartphones, the iPhone 8 proved "hardier" when it came to drops and damage.

Unveiled in the spring along with the Galaxy S8, DeX (Desktop eXtension) enables users to connect their phones to desktop displays and keyboards to use them as they would use their PCs. The chip maker revealed naff-all about the SoC's specs, noting only that Xiaomi's next flagship phone will have the Snapdragon 845 at its heart.

Other drop tests seem to indicate that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were more durable than competing Samsung Galaxy devices. However, it's up to you to decide if that extra 90 minutes of battery life is worth using a bigger phone. Other differences highlight the downsides of the iPhone X. The new iPhone has a 2716 mAh battery which the Galaxy S8 features a 3000 mAh one and the Galaxy S8 Plus features a 3500 mAh unit.

"We tumbled three samples of the iPhone X. The first was fine after 50 drops, but the glass on the back was significantly cracked after 100", the publication wrote.

With the strong demand for iPhone X, a Taiwanese supplier is predicting that the Cupertino giant's rivals will also adopt the 3D sensing technology Apple used on the 10th anniversary iPhone to their flagship handsets. "Though the front glass didn't crack, several bright green bars stretched across the screens from top to bottom".

It was, apparently, so close.

Still, the outlet noted that the iPhone X's rear camera is the "highest-rated smartphone camera" it has ever tested. The unit also has higher transfer speeds of 860Mbps (read), and 256Mbps (write). Reports indicated that Samsung may release the Galaxy S9 sooner than planned. It's easier to hold and use, not to mention lighter to carry.
