Square Trade: Motorola Moto X more durable than the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c
Phone insurer Square Trade ran some tests to see how hardy the new Apple iPhone 5c and Apple iPhone 5s are. After some testing, Square Trade says that  the new models are not quite as durable as the Apple iPhone 5. "The iPhone 5S fared worse than its predecessor, the iPhone 5, in our slide test and the iPhone 5C suffered from increased smash-ability in our drop test as well as reduced grip-ability."

Testing the durability of the two new iPhones along with the Motorola Moto X and the Samsung Galaxy S4, it is the Moto X that survived the insurer's tests the best. The Samsung Galaxy S4 finished dead last. SquareTrade marketing chief Ty Shay figured that one of the new Apple iPhone models would come out on top and was surprised to see how durable the Moto X turned out to be. But if you ever held the tank-like build of the Motorola DROID in your hand, perhaps you wouldn't be so surprised.
