Apple officially released its iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus this week — and reviews appeared to be primarily positive among tech critics for functionality. But in order to assess the devices for durability, some reviewers and vloggers have taken to dropping, submerging and even burning the new phones.
Major carriers Sprint and T-Mobile are close to agreeing on terms and could have a deal set by next month, sources told Reuters.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are now in stores, and recent durability tests show users might want to be careful with the devices.
The smartphones were revealed alongside the iPhone X last week by Apple Senior VP Phil Schiller, who announced all three iPhones will include a glass back and front. Schiller said the glass on the devices is the “most durable glass on a smartphone ever.”

In a breakthrough in the field of artificial intelligence-supported nanotechnology, scientists at the University of Manchester have created the world’s first “molecular robot,” which can carry out a set of building commands at the molecular level.
The robot, capable of manipulating as little as one molecule of a particle, is made of 150 atoms mostly of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen, and is so small that several millions of them could easily fit atop a pin head.
When smart phones first hit the market, no one fathomed the extent of their success. Once considered a luxury device, it has morphed into a universal device with an omnipresent status.
The new generation is entering a world already glued to its smart phone. Entire conversations without looking at another human being have become de rigueur.
It is a widely perceived notion that such an "addictive" device which triggers such "anti-social" behavior cannot be good for the psychological health.
Several tons of waste plastics are generated every day, and according to a study published in ScienceMag, there has been a mind-numbing 6.3 billion tons of it since humans began producing plastics.
