Why didnÂ’t Apple keep a small bezel at the top and hoise all the cameras and sensors there? The design would be great then. This cut out at the top looks so bad to me.

Every other company, which has their own manufacturing facilities will do proper testing before releasing their products into market. Samsung is the sole manufacturer of iPhone X's AMOLEDs. So there is no question of copying here. Just get to know yourself about where Apple gets its parts from and then talk. 5.8" screen in a body of 5.1" phone, so that's not too big to handle. It's 174 g not 174 kgs to make users unable to carry it. I slightly agree with you on the design front though, they could have avoided the cutout and provided better design for the back. Those things would be corrected in its successor, if it ever gets one.

3Gb ram is good only for apple Ios. But when we run certain apps this phone will be slow as any other with 3GB ram or less." I had iPhone 6s with me for about 15 months until its motherboard died and during those months i had never experienced what you are saying here. 6s was never slow during game play, even while playing Infinity Blade game series. And i am not expecting iPhone 8s and Xs to be slow either. Buddy, iPhones' strong point is iOS and its smoothness all through. My 6s was working like a charm till that dreadful day, and i only think 8s and Xs as definitely far better in performance. Only things i didn't like in iPhone X are as usual its exorbitant price tag and camera(even though Apple mentioned it as new sensor, but i feel it is a remodeled 7+ sensor). When you are charging $999 for a phone, one will expect a different camera sensor than what you will get in an 8+.
Every year around this time Apple releases its new iPhones and every year we get a few early reviews in just before the phone goes on sale.
But this time, Apple has a more interesting phone coming out in November - the iPhone X - casting a shadow over the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus - are they still worth it with a design dating back to 2014? Let's see what the reviewers say.
The consensus is that the Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are let down by a tired design that's built on huge bezels and familiar aesthetics, but the new camera, wireless charging and chip partially make up for it.
Engadget praises the iPhone 8 duo on the new excellent camera and a promising AR implementation but takes a point away for the design, despite the use of "grippier" glass.
TheVerge makes mostly the same points - fast new processor, excellent camera and having wireless charging is nice. But Nilay Patel isn't too thrilled with the stiff design either.
TechCrunch focuses on the new camera of the iPhone 8 Plus in their review hailing the new 12MP main camera as killer and the 8 Plus's Portrait Lighting as "working better than it has any right to".
The same theme continues with The Telegraph - praise for the significantly improved camera and the new faster chipset. The new glass back gets a positive mention too.
The New York Times review brands the new iPhones as the "ultimate refinement before eternal retirement".
The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) is the only media that outright advises you avoid the iPhone 8 on the grounds that the 8 doesn't do enough to be considered more than a 7s, slightly better camera notwithstanding.
John Gruber aka the Daring Fireball brands the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus "pretty good for a boring update".
CNET would have you wait to see the iPhone X before deciding on buying either an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus.
In its brief write-up USA Today describes the new glass and metal design as "lovely".
Wired shares TechCrunch' sentiment that the new camera is kick-ass. It also hails the glass design as a big improvement coupled with wireless charging.
Anyway we'll have even more to say when we get our hands on the new iPhones - camera samples, battery tests, loudspeaker test - all that jazz. So stay tuned!
I would buy this phone just for the BBOS 10 feeling that it gives.

I admired the OLED on my sister's S5 that's why I switched to Samsung after using iPhone for 7 months. The S5's display can still compete with the new generation of smartphones IMO.
And if Apple claims no burn in for iPhone X, then it is logical to say that Samsung smartphones has no burn in as well. Samsung is the supplier of OLED to Apple. You said that S8 has "garbage looking burn in". iPhone X is vulnerable to "garbage looking burn in" as well!
Mr Gabz, 19 Sep 2017The phone looks nice and modern but I did not like frankly the wireless recharge method. Just ... moreThis type of charging is easier to implement outside, as there is no need to care about what ports you have, and you don't need to carry wires.
And to add to that since Apple is also on the Qi standard and adding new protocols, we will see the rise of wireless battery packs, that can recharge wirelessly on those pads, as well as charging your phone on the go. And maybe lead to power sharing, putting phones to each other or battery packs to each other will charge the lower battery ones.
And if you have enough of such places around charging your phone faster then usage, you will not feel the restriction you say. Unless you are the type that uses your phone 24/7 without a single rest... then i call that over addiction.

To me it seems a worm slowly eating apple and soon or later this company will be sold or bancrupt. Its just asking too much,
They had a retina display which was good but now they copying samsung technology and yet they do not shame to ask for a partial copy product 1150 eur.
By the way as every apple heating or not battery die fast. Especialy when used for 4k recording because lot of people will try that and they will be shocked how fast the phone died i mean battery.
For Example Sony Z5 premium on 4k lasted like 45-50 mins and battery died. And it had 3430 mAh. When i look at all previous apple phones noone had battery over 2000 mAh. Apart from 7plus 2900. But for almost 6 inch screen it will be like joke i mean battery capacity.
For example oukitel K10000 pro have 10150 mAh battery 5,5 inch screen 3GB ram 32 Gb disk space 8 core processor and cost only 220 eur.

In my case vibeshot and works like charm even after 2 years bought it 2 months after release and still its my best phone i ever had other phones doesnt last me that long.
And i guarantee you that some games wont run smoothly even on this phone.
3Gb ram is good only for apple Ios. But when we run certain apps this phone will be slow as any other with 3GB ram or less.
The phone looks nice and modern but I did not like frankly the wireless recharge method. Just though a smarter wireless technology to be offered. can anyone find any person that is willing to sit at the airport waiting his phone to recharge and not to use it? imagine yourself just waiting you phone to recharge, at least when there is a cable you can recharge and use. thats my opinion with due respect.
