That said, it's behind the Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, and Galaxy Note 8, as well as the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

'In our initial drop test, the iPhone X performed just fine, ' the site said. Comparing either the Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, or Note 8 with Apple's iPhone X ends in a fairly safe conclusion: they're all top-tier phones with standout features that, for many consumers, fully earn their premium price tags. After going through 100 drops, the glass back suffered major damage.

The site praised the iPhone X's display, pointing to its overall brightness and vibrant colors, along with the deep black levels.

The foldable iPhone patent was granted along with 50 others, including patents for a magnetic iPad stand, a system for sensing fingers and hands hovering over a device display, and AirPod earbuds equipped with biometric sensors that can measure galvanic skin response and cardiac signals.

"If not for the damage in that durability test, the iPhone X would have come in ahead of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus", said Richard Fisco, Consumer Reports' head of smartphone testing.

Apple has already issued a warning that the OLED screen might have some problems with prolonged use and the battery life and the size of the iPhone X are slightly more than iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus which makes the latter phones much more consumer friendly. Though the front glass didn't crack, several bright green bars stretched across the screens from top to bottom.

It seemed like Apple was proud of the technology that they had incorporated in the phone.

Tumble tests don't get a lot of weight when we calculate a phone's Overall Score.

This is consistent with the results for other recent Apple phones, including the 7- and 8-series iPhones, which also did well in our water-immersion tests.

Consumer Reports made this ranking on the basis of battery life and durability testing which may not apply to real-world usage.

To find out exactly how long a phone's battery can go, Consumer Reports uses a robotic finger programmed to put the phone through a range of tasks created to simulate a consumer's average day. We run all smartphone battery tests with the display set to 100 percent brightness.

The iPhone 8 and SE had 19, the iPhone 8 plus 21 - while Samsung's S8 and S8+ delivered 26 hours. Enter Consumer Reports, a historic publication that claims to provide "evidence-based product testing and ratings" for pretty much any kind of tech product you can think of, including Apple and Samsung's flagships for 2017. It did beat the iPhone 8 on this front, lasting up to 19.5 hours.

When you combine that with the model's custom battery design, the company says, the iPhone X should last "up to 2 hours longer between charges than the iPhone 7".
