iPhone Xr Holds Up Better than More Expensive Models, SquareTrade Finds
Paying a prettier penny for a phone proves to do little in terms of providing better protection against drops and other normal wear and tear—at least according to the results of the latest SquareTrade Screen Test. In it, the warranty service provider took a closer look at the new iPhone Xr, which launched last week at retail.
The company found that, despite the “entry-level” model’s lower price point, it provided roughly the same amount of durability as the more expensive Xs and Xs Max phones did.
That’s both good and bad.
