iPhone durability analysis

“A Ceramic Shield front that’s tougher than any smartphone glass.”

That’s the bold USP and marketing message from Apple regarding the iPhone 12. The Ceramic Shield, Apple claim, is tougher than any smartphone glass on the market (at the time of release), made possible by introducing nano-ceramic crystals into the glass, which are supposed to be harder than most metals!

With mobile phones being more important to us than ever before, its unsurprising that device manufacturers like Apple have put a focus on improving the durability of their devices as our reliability on them continues to increase.
