The Toughest (And Weakest) Phones Currently On the Market

New submitter Daneel Olivaw R. shares a report from Tom’s Guide: To measure each phone’s toughness, [Tom’s Guide] dropped it from both 4 and 6 feet onto wood and concrete. After each test, we recorded the damage to the phone. If a phone was rendered unusable — the screen totally shattered, for instance — then we stopped dropping it. [More details on the testing process can be found here.] Each drop was worth a maximum of 5 points; if a phone made it through all of the rounds unscathed, it would earn 35 points. The more severe the damage per drop was, the more points were deducted. If a phone was rendered unusable after a given drop, it would earn no points, and would not undergo any subsequent test. In total, there were seven tests. […] If a phone died in the 6-foot edge drop, it was penalized an extra 10 percent. If it died in the 6-foot face drop, it was penalized 5 percent. And if it died when dropped into the toilet, it lost 2.5 percent. We then divided the total score by 3.5, to put it on a 10-point scale. Here are the scores of each device:
Motorola Moto Z2 Force – Toughness score: 8.5/10
LG X Venture – Toughness score: 6.6/10
Apple iPhone X – Toughness score: 6.2/10
LG V30 – Toughness score: 6/10
Samsung Galaxy S9 – Toughness score: 6/10
Motorola Moto G5 Plus – Toughness score: 5.1/10
Apple iPhone 8 – Toughness score: 4.9/10
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – Toughness score: 4.3/10
OnePlus 5T – Toughness score: 4.3/10
Huawei Mate 10 Pro – Toughness score: 4.3/10
Google Pixel 2 XL – Toughness score: 4.3/10
iPhone SE – Toughness score: 3.9/10
