I Broke An iPhone 12 To See How Tough the Ceramic Shield Is!

Honestly, I didn't expect the Apple's newest screen to be that much tougher.
Not sure we need screen protectors anymore...
Here are the numbers, forgot to make a table for the video:
Force Test
iPhone 11 - 352 N
iPhone 12 - 443N
To press down the extra ~100-ish N's on the iPhone 12 took quite a bit of effort. Based on this value, the iPhone's screen is tougher than most screen protectors I've used.

Scratch Test
-The iPhone 12 had better scratch resistance on the front by a bit. My #7 pick didn't leave the same scratches as the iPhone 11
-Back scratch resistance is the same as the 11
-Camera Len's are the same (both scratched visibly with my #8 pick)

    fun fact, the reason the ceramic screen has that radial pattern is due to the molecular structure of ceramics in general. the "platelets" move in a far more linear pattern due to the flex that pattern creates. glass on the other hand is not as structural due to the more scattered molecular pattern. for example Quartz is stronger than glass because the pattern is in a crystalline formation giving far more structural integrity to the crystal through millions of years of high pressure and molten temperatures within the earths surface. glass is made by melting basic silica and mixing it with other compounds in order to make a molded structure at a much hotter and faster rate than the Quartz. now, take high tech innovation and add the ceramic molecular structure and you get this incredibly tough material. win win basically. same reason why sapphire is so much more scratch resistant as well. only downfall with sapphire is that its just as brittle in a lot of ways as glass is, as sapphire is an impure compound of molecules.

    Nah, the screen broke under concentrated load of the point w xxx number of Newtons. It was the high pressure that broke the screen not force. All you have to do is to file off the point a little bit and you'll be amazed how much more Force the screen can take.

    Υοu need to be using rocks and cement for your test because rarely phones get scratched by / fall on metals. These materials dont have the same result when the phone gets in contact with them. Metal is alot harder. JerryRigs everything does the same mistake.

    TBH, for ANY Phone, get a fucking Glass Screen Protector, like seriously. They are dirt cheap (5-15$ a pop) and they protect your Screen pretty well. I am defenetly not very carefull with my phone, I will drop it constantly on concrete. Also there are quite some occations, when there might get a little Sand or shit to it. Needless to say, they will crack and scratch eventually. But the Screen of my 3 year old Phone and the ones before it have absolutely no marks. I just replace the Glass screen Protector that is fucked up in 5 Minutes and everything is allright again.

    Yeah but I think it’s click bate cause if you see the thumbnail if you look closer you can see that there is a protective screen on there that means the protective screen cracked but not the actual screen sooo yeah don’t let him fool you (trust me the actual screen is way more protective then the protective screen you won’t even need a protective screen or a case that’s how strong it is)

    poo pee19 days ago

    But he didn't use a screen protector for the video. He also used a tool that measures force done on a single point which make it easier to break and crack. Also how do you know that its more stronger, have you pressed a a single point down on it with your full body weight.

    Why would you purposely break a phone. Do you think that people don’t know that gravity or force is destructive. You know there’s enough e waste on this planet without you over demonstrating the obvious.
