The iPhone 15 Pro Max durability test, Apple’s newest flagship, features a titanium design.
However, is this premium device really durable? Does titanium enhance its resistance to scratches, drops, and bends compared to earlier models?
The iPhone 15 Pro Max, features a ceramic shield front, a textured matte glass back, and a titanium frame.
The ceramic shield is tougher than any smartphone glass and offers four times better drop performance.
The matte glass back is more resistant to fingerprints and smudges than the glossy glass back of the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The titanium frame is lighter and stronger than the stainless steel frame of previous models.
YouTuber Zack scratch-tested the ceramic shield display, finding that it scratched at level six with deeper grooves at level seven.
He also found that the titanium frame was scratched at level four with deeper grooves at level five.
iPhone 15 Pro Max drop tested, claims better durability than any smartphone glass.
YouTuber Zack from JerryRigEverything found that the ceramic shield display was scratched at level six, with deeper grooves at level seven.
The matte glass back scratched at level five, with deeper grooves at level six.
The titanium frame scratched at level four, with deeper grooves at level five.
This is lower than the stainless steel frame of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which scratched at level six.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max, showed good performance in scratch tests with its ceramic shield display, matte glass back, and titanium frame.
However, it performed worse in drop tests, with the curved edges of the back glass and titanium frame not providing enough cushioning.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra survived further drops without additional damage, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max cracked its display.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max, despite its claimed stronger and lighter titanium frame, failed the bend test in the bend test, shattering its back glass under moderate pressure.
This result was surprising, as the larger size of the phone made it more prone to bending than the smaller iPhone 15 Pro.
The titanium frame might not be strong enough to support the weight of the phone, making it the most fragile iPhone he had ever tested.
To avoid this, users should use a protective case and avoid placing the phone in tight pockets or sitting on it.
Durability tests have shown that Apple’s most expensive smartphone, the iPhone 15 Pro Max, is fragile.
Its titanium design, ceramic shield front, and matte glass back lack protection against wear and tear, making it susceptible to falls. Users should take precautions, use protective cases, avoid drops, and handle with care.
