Who else is getting frustrated by how fragile the new iPhone XR back glass are?

 

So my new iPhone XR is made of glass and it looks great! I got the blue one and everyone tells me it looks great. But after one week I broke my iPhone XR back glass already and it wasn’t dropped. I keep my phone in my purse and after shopping for groceries one day it had a crack in it. I couldn’t believe it, I was so upset. I spent close to eight hundred dollars and now the phone is worth half that.

 

The iPhone XR Back Glass Is Fragile and an Expensive

 

I took the phone to the Apple store and was shocked when they told me the price to fix the back glass. The representative asked why I didn’t get the apple care. Because I’m not made out of money and I take great care of my phones. My last phone was an iPhone 7 and I never dropped it and never broke it. I complained to the store and said the phone was so fragile, maybe the back glass was defective. Of course they weren’t buying it but still, the iPhone XR back glass is really fragile. And I wasn’t the only one. There were several other people there whole also had broken back glass.

 

Keep your colorful iPhone X’s back glass safe

 

My husband, who uses android keeps his phone in a big bulky case. He said it was my own fault. But I told him the whole reason I bought the iPhone XR was because of the colors. I mean why apple would make such a beautiful phone that needs to be covered by a case is crazy. The only reason my husband uses a case is because he is prone to dropping his phone. I never drop my phone.
Now I keep a tempered glass on the front and back of my iPhone XR, to protect it. The back glass is there to allow the wireless charging, not just for looks. It’s a shame how fragile it is though. I understand that this is the new design going forward so I just have to get used to it.
