The iPhone 8 was tested for its durability in real-life situations such as being dropped from a pocket onto a tar road, being sat on or having excess pressure applied to the screen.
The screen on the iPhone 8 Plus is strong and able to survive falls from your bag or pocket onto concrete. In 50% of the cases, the phone’s screen cracked and the other 50% saw the phone’s screen holding strong. Depending on which angle the phone hit the surface, the back glass cracked in 70% of the drops which could have been saved with a good phone cover. The frame held up very well and does not bend easily when being sat on. Overall, we give the iPhone 8 Plus a 7/10 durability score.
