DEVASTATED iPhone X users are already posting pictures of their expensive devices SMASHED to pieces – after dropping the gadgets on the floor.
Despite Apple’s much-hyped phone only going on sale less than 24 hours ago, new buyers have been sharing snaps and footage of their destroyed device.
One viral clip shot somewhere in China shows the owner holding a shattered silver iPhone X in his hand.
While the device appears to be still on, the glass front and back are covered in cracks.
“I think this is a better look, no?” the man says jokingly in the video, adding: “What do you think?”
Another user posted a shocking picture, which has also went viral, showing the new model with a crack in one of the corners.
The disgruntled buyer captioned the picture: “How much will it cost to fix this?”
Thousands of Apple fanatics around the world have waited outside stores – in some cases overnight and in freezing temperatures – as they hoped to be among the first to get their hands on the iPhone X.
Pictures from Moscow, Dubai, Beijing, Berlin, Tokyo, New York, Singapore and London show excited tech users waiting gleefully to get their hands on the latest must-have gadget.
The Californian firm unleashed the brand new product at a glittering September ceremony held in its new “spaceship” headquarters.
The iPhone X was available to order in the US from October 27 and costs $1,000 in the States, which equates to about £750, but is being marketed in the UK at an eye-watering £999.
The tech giant’s chief executive Tim Cook said the latest flagship handset was a milestone for the company a decade after the first iPhone was released.
A big new feature of the iPhone X is a system called “Face ID” that lets you unlock your handset using your face.
Apple claims Face ID can’t be fooled in any way, meaning you won’t be able to get into someone’s phone by scanning a photo of them.
That’s twice the price of the original model that was launched ten years ago.
Another major attraction for the pricey device is an exciting new front-rear 3D camera that can do all sorts of imaginative things with your face.
The facial recognition sensors can animate the emojis you send in messages, meaning your adorable panda picture can actually read out your words and move its lips.
