This video of man dropping new iPhone X is too hard to watch

iPhone

<p>A lot of people will know that gutt-wrenching feeling when you drop your phone and see that the screen is broken. </p> <p>But not this man. Video footage shows him performing a ‘drop test’ on the new iPhone X – much to the outcry of social media users. </p> <p>The video posted to Twitter shows the man repeatedly dropping the much sought after device which has a price tag of over 1,100 euros. </p> <p><blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="fr"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">A Drop & the <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/iPhoneX?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#iPhoneX</a> Glass Smashes.
