Hardly an industry standard for testing, JerryRigEverything's torture routine has become a great source of insight on just how scratch and bend resistant you can expect your next phone to be. Well, in comes the X.

The Apple iPhone X is the latest to come out of Cupertino, and like the more pedestrian iPhone 8and 8 Plus is a glass sandwich with a metal frame all around, only here the metal is steel and not aluminum, so it scratches with a different (still painful) sound. The display won't get damaged by keys and coins, but beware of pocket sand and granite countertops.

There's a plastic inlet between glass and frame, serving as buffer to help prevent cracking when you inevitably drop your X - a good thing since the back panel damage is a $550 replacement job.

Mohs picks scratch test, razor blade scratch test, burn test, you know Zack's drill. It's the bend test that comes last, and despite some flex, there's no permanent damage. Check it for yourself in the video below.
