The new iPhone offers the same front design with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor found on its predecessor. However, at the rear, it gets a glass back panel, unlike the all-metal design on the iPhone 7. Now like last year, the YouTube channel JerryRigEverything has unboxed the iPhone 8 and proceeded to take the device through a scratch, burn and bend tests.
the durability test reveals that Apple is using a lower-grade Sapphire glass on the camera lens instead of a pure Sapphire material. While most Sapphire resist scratching until level eight or nine on the Mohs hardness scale, the iPhone 8’s sapphire lens exhibited visible marks on level six itself.
iPhone 8’s screen went black for a while, but the pixels recovered easily after cooling down. In the bend test, the phone passed with flying colours as it didn’t show any sign of flexing at all.
