However, these results combined with the iPhone X's comparatively low battery-life showing (see below) did knock the phone down a few spots in our rankings, says Fisco, who leads CR's phone testing program. It is notable that iPhone X is lagging behind its own counterparts from Apple, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Long story short, the issue stems from battery life - just like the case with the iPhone X now - but the Cupertino brand zeroed in on the problem and found that the testing method was faulty, getting a recommendation from the publication in the end. And while you don't get the familiar Home button, you pick up a decent amount of screen space in a phone that's significantly smaller than the 7 Plus and 8 Plus. The site said the iPhone X's display excelled because of its overall brightness, vibrant colors and deep black levels. In a test, the battery lasted for 19.5 hours, well behind the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, which lasted 26 hours.

Though the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus also sport glass backs, Consumer Reports says that they are "more resistant to breaking". They also listed the OLED display and the Face ID system as the strength of the iPhone X. But given that its resources appear to be focused on meeting demand for the iPhone X, and possibly bringing its infrared facial recognition technology to next year's lineup of devices, a foray into foldable tech may not be in the cards. The site said the feature's setup and unlocking process was "quick and easy".

The iPhone X did make it to the Consumer Reports list of top 10 smartphones, but the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus proved "hardier" when it came to a tumble test for emulating real-world drops and fumbles of about 2.5 feet. The site pointed out flaws with the battery and the device's durability.

However, the iPhone X did not do well during a more extensive test in a tumbling machine, which repeatedly drops the handset from a height of about 2.5 feet.

When subjected to shock 50 times, the display of two out of three iPhone Xs no longer worked properly, and the back of the phone broke when it was dropped 100 times.

House Passes Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill
Ed Perlmutter, a Democrat from Colorado, said the bill was an attempt to restrict the rights of states with tighter gun controls . Our state has strong gun safety laws in place and remains committed to enforcing these statutes in the face of federal overreach.

The iPhone X isn't the first phone to fail our tumble test. Though the front glass didn't crack, several bright green bars stretched across the screens from top to bottom.

For example, our testers also reported broken displays and back panels when they tumbled Samsung's almost all-glass Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones.

Us-based Consumer Reports recently said after an experiment that the iPhone X is inferior to other smartphones in terms of durability and battery life.

Durability is something to think about if you're considering a purchase of the iPhone X. The phone isn't just expensive to buy; it's also unusually pricey to fix.
