Bottom line if u have a solid case like UAG or Otterbox (I know - they ugly af...) you rarely will have any worries. I've dropped my fone 6-7 times on concrete, asphalt, on subway floors and never had an issue with an UAG Monarch case. Of course if you decide to drop the thing on sharp rocks or spikes - YMMV. *welp*
Yeah I need a case that is fairly easy to get out of my pocket without feeling defenseless against drops. Will this one do? https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07H4DR364/ref ... 2Bb7NXJW5V

I remember looking it up a few years ago regarding international warranty and I recall that warranty is not valid for phones internationally.
I was able to replace my iPhone X from US (with a different model number) at Apple store, Sherway no problem.

Dont know about that brand. However, any from this list is fine. Not the best looking or sleekest but if you want protection here it is. Note UAG Monarch is listed #1. Lot of peeps like Speck and Spigen.

Did the 'iPhone X from US' have the Qualcomm modem?
The Canadian iPhone X's have the Intel modem.

iPhone X Models with Qualcomm Modem Still Outpaces Those with Intel Modem

Typically they don't. Usually Black Friday rolls around when the phones have have been released within 1-2 months and Apple will not give any incentives for buying iPhones from the stores. However retailers like Best Buy and carriers themselves may have BF incentives.

I was lucky that I was able to take advantage of Freedom Mobile's XS offer. Doubt Black Friday can beat that.

I am waiting for the XR too. Yellow 256GB.

Yeah... but doesnt the XS have the same LTE/wifi issues as XS Max?? Did the f/w 12.0.1 update solve that issue?? I heard peeps said on some fones it made no difference. *welp*
