The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus Get Put Through SquareTrade Breakability Test
One of the most exciting things with any new smartphone launch is seeing how people review the device. Typically, you’ll see the standard video where the reviewer will open up the packaging, take out what’s inside, and turn the phone on. Those are great, and they certainly help build anticipation if you’re someone (like me) who enjoys “unboxing” things…
My favorite kind of review, though, is definitely the durability testing that some outlets do with these devices. And SquareTrade has to be near the top of the list as far as this segment of the review market is concerned. The protection plan provider has been at it for a number of years with their Breakability test, which puts each smartphone through a rigorous slate of drops, dunks, and more.
Part of what makes these kinds of reviews so great is how cringeworthy it is watching these high-priced, luxury tech gadgets get absolutely blown to pieces. It’s physically hard to watch sometimes, but you can’t look away and I find myself laughing hysterically by the end of it all.
