IPhone 12 Ceramic Shield tested for strength: do you need a case?



One of the features of the iPhone 12 was a special glass Ceramic Shield, developed by Gorilla Glass using nanoceramic crystals. According to Apple, this coating withstands four times better fall. The company claims that this is the strongest glass used in smartphones.

After the first reviews, the bloggers immediately began to check this loud statement. They conducted a real crash test for the iPhone 12.

The author of the popular YouTube channel EverythingApplePro was one of the first to test the strength of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. When falling from the height of the belt on different sides of the body, both devices were only slightly scratched, but nothing critical. A similar result when falling from the level of the head, but on the iPhone 12 Pro there were a few damaged pixels.

After that, the blogger climbed to a height of about three meters. The first iPhone 12 flew first. After the fall, it did not show any obvious damage, but the inspection showed that the camera stopped working. The more expensive iPhone 12 Pro survived this fall without any problems. Then both smartphones were thrown from the same height with the back cover down, which in both cases led to breaking the glass. The windshield remained intact. Only after the screen fell down in the iPhone 12 Pro still cracked ceramic glass, but the iPhone 12 withstood this test. The blogger was very impressed with the strength of the new smartphones.

The author of the YouTube channel TechRax decided to compare the strength of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11. Both smartphones withstood the first fall with minimal damage to the aluminum frame. Then there was a throw of the screen down from the level of the head, which last year’s device no longer survived – the windshield was covered with cracks. Nothing happened to the new iPhone 12 with the same fall.

A blogger from the MobileReviewsEh channel decided to test the strength of the new iPhone 12 in a completely different way. He used a special device to press on the screen. Ceramic Shield withstood an applied force of 442 Newtons before cracking. For comparison, last year’s iPhone 11 broke at 352 Newtons.

No less interesting that the glass of the iPhone 12 is not only stronger than in the previous generation, but even less scratched. If on the iPhone 11, as on most other modern smartphones, small scratches appear on the sixth mark of the Mohs scale, in the case of the new iPhone 12 visible traces remain only on the seventh.
