It’s been a day since the famed iPhone X has hit shelves. Fans have gone as far as camping outside Apple stores to get their hands on the special 10th anniversary iPhone but as early as now, we’re seeing photos of the very first shattered phones.
Of course, with new iPhones come… well, new broken iPhones.
The iPhone X, which retails starting at US$ 999, is made of glass. It’s pretty, shiny, and very breakable, as some people have already found out.

Even watching this drop test makes me cringe. 🙉🙈🙊

Repair does not come cheap for the Apple flagship. Their website lists iPhone X screen repair prices and it’s a little under how much a midrange smartphone would cost you.
So, the moral of the story is: Don’t get an iPhone X.
Kidding! This is a reminder that if you do get the handset, you better be careful with it, butterfingers.
