As seen in the YouTube video, the Apple iPhone XR was put through scratch, burn, and bend tests. In terms of handling the scratches, the front LCD display on iPhone XR could handle sharper objects like knife till level five, while the scratches appeared on level six with deeper grooves at level seven.

The anodized aluminum body of the iPhone XR is not like the steel body of new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max , although it could handle the sharper knife peeling and can be seen be very solid too. When it came to burn test of the iPhone XR’s LCD panel, it could withstood an open flame for about 10 seconds, however the dead pixels went back to normal within a few seconds.

Coming to the durability test of sapphire lens on the rear camera sensor, the lens glass scratched at level six, which is a weak point of the iPhone XR. Even the YouTuber in its final statement said that “the sapphire isn’t pure”.
