New iPhone X owners may want to reconsider going caseless now that the smartphone has been deemed the “most breakable" Apple device ever released by warranty provider SquareTrade. The iPhone X has performed miserably in drop tests and it is the most expensive iPhone ever to repair. The OLED display on the iPhone X is much more costly to replace than the LCD screens found on previous models. Apple lists screen repair for the iPhone X at $279 and all other damage at $549. The iPhone 8 Plus is only $169 for screen repair and $399 for other damage, as a comparison.

Now that the iPhone X has been released, owners of the device are flexing all of its capabilities. One of the highlights is Apple's Animoji, which uses the front facing TrueDepth camera to animate wacky creatures. And what better way to use a $1,000 smartphone than to lip sync videos with those creatures? Enter the Animoji karaoke phenomenon, spreading across Twitter and other social media.
Apple surprised iPhone X owners with an exclusive iPhone X-only ringtone named Reflection. The new tone has been described as an update to Marimba, the original iPhone ringtone first launched in 2007. Of course, an exclusive is only temporary. Once the ringtone is publicly released the genie doesn't go back in the bottle.
Apple today has released a press release featuring a list of positive comments for the iPhone X. This is very unlike the iPhone maker who is normally not known for relying on critic endorsements. The press release includes several quotes from popular blogs and tech sites praising various features of the newly released iPhone.
