The iPhone 15 Pro Max, Apple’s latest and most expensive product, has been the talk of the town since its release. With its brushed titanium frame and etched back glass, it promises a blend of elegance and resilience. But how strong is it when used every day? We had different tests on the iPhone 15 Pro Max to find out about its durability and here are the results.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max boasts a grade 5 titanium side frame, a shift from the stainless steel used in its predecessor, the iPhone 14 Pro. This change aims to offer a lighter yet comparably strong build, impacting the handling and ergonomics of the device positively.
How Durable is the iPhone 15 Pro Max?
- Scratch and Heat Resistance Tests
In multiple tests, the Ceramic Shield display of the iPhone 15 Pro Max exhibited commendable resistance to scratches, showing visible marks only at Mohs level 7. The camera lenses and the matte back glass also demonstrated significant scratch resistance. Even when subjected to direct flame, the display remained impressively intact, highlighting its resilience to extreme conditions.
- Bend Test Surprises
There was an unexpected problem when we tried to run the bend test on the device. The glass on the back of the phone had a tendency to break when it was bent with just a little bit of force.
This even surprised experts like Zack Nelson from JerryRigEverything. This is interesting because iPhones are usually very strong and don’t break easily in these tests.
On the other hand, the smaller version of the iPhone 15, the iPhone 15 Pro, didn’t have any problems when it was tested in the same way. This makes the situation even more mysterious.
Why Did It Break?
They used titanium, which is very strong but not very flexible like aluminium, in making this device. Some people think this could be one of the reasons why the glass on the back can easily break when you push or bend it.
It’s possible that the inside part, which is made of aluminium and attached to the titanium bands using a special method, might be transferring the pressure to the glass, making it crack.
However, the iPhone 15 Pro didn’t break in the same test, which makes this even more puzzling.
Can It Be Fixed Easily?
The good news is that the back glass is designed in a way that makes it easier and cheaper to fix if it breaks. Even though it can be fragile, the device still works really well, and it didn’t have any big problems after all those tough tests.
materials. It’s really good at resisting scratches and heat, which is great.
However, the way they use both titanium and aluminum in making it might be affecting how strong it is. This means there’s more to learn and test about this phone’s durability.
For users, it’s a good idea to use a protective case and handle the phone with care. This will help reduce the chances of any unexpected issues and ensure you can enjoy all the features of this phone without any problems.
