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)

Other than a sapphire screen, what screen protector do you recommend? And, you never really explained what 400 meant for the screen break, compared to what.
michael knight
what an idiot! you should have done the scratch test first before breaking the screen...coz now there's all sorts of broken screen cracks/ lines that looks like scratches !!

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.

So, my analysis is that either he is lying about the sapphire glass and/or the mohz picks are broken, or Jerry Rig Everything is lying or his picks are broken.

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.

Alessandro Dai Pré
my man you need to study the difference between fracture toughness and flexural strneght.. or have an engineer explain that to you! It is a waste to see two perfectly fine phones and such a video editing quality, wasted because there is no science behind the test!

sagich dirdochnicht
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.

I cappelletti sono un formato di pasta all'uovo ripiena tradizionale che si ottiene tagliando la sfoglia di pasta in quadrati o cerchi, al centro dei quali viene posto il ripieno. La pasta viene poi piegata prima in due a triangolo unendo le estremità intorno a un dito della mano.

So is the ceramic shield already embedded into the front and back glass of the iPhone 12 pro? Or is it another separate layer of glass that is applied after the fact? Thanks!

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)

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.
