According to tech warranty company, Square Trade Inc., who conducted a number of drop test results, the iPhone X cannot resist getting damaged from a fall of six feet (1.83metres) and it would cost $279 to replace a broken front screen while it would cost $549 for other repairs.

SquareTrade Labs uses a range of robots to drop, tumble, bend, and dunk devices to see how they handle everyday life activities of humans.

In a video testing the iPhone X’s resistance, the phone’s screen shattered in a face down drop test from six feet (1.83 metres) causing facial recognition to stop working.

Apart from possible theft scenario of a very valuable phone, there's also the very heartbreaking feeling parts of seeing a part of the  phone like the screen getting shattered.

So it's rather needless to say that you got to be extra careful when using your iPhone X or that of others.
