Let me be unbiased here and start with negative:
1. Price is plain robbery. It is shame how greedy Apple has become. Apple always did charge premium and was always more expensive than competition. Than Plus models came, asking even more premium than regular models. Now we have X. But in defense of Apple, others have become greedy aswell. Samsung, im looking at you. Almost same price as X and you dont even develope your own OS.
2. Transition to X is bumoy road for Apple. Bugs and freezes are what separates X from all previous models. X is almost unreliable as Android. But in defende of Android, its jack of all trades. Apple has no excuse for lack of optimisations.
1. Screen is great. Samaung naiked it. Biggest on Apple smartphone so far, yet in such small case. Best of both worlds. And reading is breeze. I just hope they arent prone to burn ins.
2. Gesture works flawless. One week and you feel how dated homebutton was. It just works.
3. Face id is also A+. No issues at all. People were like Â“you have to stare to unlockÂ”, while in reality, its just as if you dont have password at all. You pick phone and slide up. Bum, youre in. Seriosly, i forget that its locked. There is no delay or extra step. Just imagine unlockig phone by swipe up. And it works even if you smile or talk. Flawless. This is really step forward. Touch id is great, but this is step up.
4. Storage. With 256gb, there is absolutely no need for SD. Period.
Camera is not priority to me since im casual user. Ever since iPhone 4 and Lg G3, all cameras i had on phones were good to me. Im layman.
Battery life is on par with 7+. No issues at all. 12hours of heavy uses and its on 30%.
Wireless charge is also like Androids wireless. Qii charging is great. I was happy when jack died cuz i want wireless future, and now its here. With airdrop, wireless chargin and wireless headphones, i am ready for death od last jack in the phone world.
Summary: High tech, yet pricy. OS still needs optimisations untill this phone can be what its meant to be. Innovative.
2018 September IPhone X2 6.3" top of line, will still cost less then thousand bucks. Apple has learned lesson, from adventure! 1300+$. Now it will have 526gb Rom! As Standard!

Cost of the phone was depens on..
Disply ,if its own product they will be cheaprr.
Years of invesment on research fot developing..
Now,reasearch+parts+compny profit+country tax+shiping charge+your country tax+ dealer profit+reseler profit=price you buy...
Think or buy the parts you think its cheaper by breaking down the parts and makr iphone x..try if uou satisfy that way...i didnt mean samsung was bad.....this is business...samsung sold almost 20+models a year while apple only sold 3models....think....
They get their profit through aother model.

In simple words iPhone is good but price is not worth . Not satisfied what i pay for
Iphone x and s9 plus production cost is nearly same if u google it may be 10$ difference but apple charge more than Samsung. And i really disappointed this time due to build quality of x . I m using both x n s9 plus . X dark gray side frame colour faded n turn to silver after using 3 months . Is that 1000$ mobile? I hope Samsung ill b fnn this time . Sorry for my English
i have used everything, like not kidding [used to work for a telco] i love iphone however i have not been overwhelmed with the X. i love it but i wasn't amazed by it like i thought i would be. i think i will end up going back to the 8plus or the 8 when im eligible in December

This is ab... moreI know what you are\was trying to say,I know that Iphone gets compared by every single smartphone even with cheap Chinese fake smartphones.But What I Meant to say that IPhones are better than huawei,oppo,etc.Only Samsung and Google has power to be better than Apple.Still I got what You said and I know it...
5 months into using iPhone X. Below is my experience with the phone.
Background - I have been a regular user of iPhone since iPhone 4, since then always go for the latest version upgrade every year between September - November. The iPhones are quite expensive and one need to be really big fan of IOS to buy it in cash. Lucky for me I am in Singapore which helps me to upgrade it every year using my SingTel bundle benefits. And I get an additional 120$ discount coupon every year to use. I also own Galaxy S6 and tab S 8.4 which I still use for various purpose.
- Screen : this is the reason why I went for it. It is just amazing to watch the photos and videos and the full screen increases the pleasure of looking at the screen. DonÂ’t think the screen is bigger than that of iP7+ , the area of screen would be slight less for iPX as it is narrower and bit longer.
- Camera : I find the photos less grainy then the iPhone 7 Plus that I used before this specially for low light photography. I feel the colors are more accurate and lively especial when sufficient amount of light is there. Portraits are just amazing , and the depth effects are more then iP7+
- Battery : no complain here, lasts me a full day like my iP7+ on weekends. On weekdays I have a 15$ mouse pad with wireless charger which I use at office and I just put on it when not using.
- Phone Unlocking : well this is the area where I most miss the old perfect working finger print unlock, especially when I want to read messages without picking up the phone on my desk. Face unlock is fast but cannot replace the convenience of finger print. Face unlock is painful when you hold your locked phone upright for few mins in crowded train/bus and it then refused to recognized you later and ask for password. Hope Apple bring back the finger print and put it under screen like some of the android brand.
Overall I am happy with the iPhone X with exception of the missing finger print unlocking. I am looking towards renewing it again this year and hope that the finger print is back under the screen. Else I am still ok to have face unlock to do away with the space occupied by big round finger print scanner.

Cz they hv diff OS?
Fones r compared based on their specs..features... access/usabilities. Androids r capable of so many features yet iphone lacks in so much of these basic necessities that all other manufactureres tweak in their products..bt apple is too stubborn n not user oriented/centric bt they mke phones as per their weird not providing general/useful/latest useful features focus on trvial unimportant facts for marketing. Still stuck at weird screen resolution lower than qhd..tho qhd+ is standard now. Ip67 against ip68! Fast charging.. Sd card slot to which icrap fans say to blindy support they dnt need n wd rather pay for 128gb model!! How dumb ppl can be to opt fr expensive n limited storage over chosing cheap expandable option which is the usual case for rest of d world??! List goes lot longer... these buffons will say use an iphone before u commnt n u wil kno..to which if u ask wats spcl..all they say is use it n u'll kno. Bt cnt gv any reasn. honestly..u think ppl comment out of spite n not knowledge? Wat can i say..fanboys r dumb to follow n endorse a brand that dsnt offer basic features as they r so blinded by the myth Apple is above all since the costliest device n the fact tat android..sammy lags! Gigs hv 8gb ram now.whom u kidding wen u say a11 bionic chip dsnt need more RAM to perform? Yet in RAM management tests..iPhones fail to keep open most apps minimised or running in the background??!! Be honest...dnt u hv another device tats ur daily drive? I bet..cuz its d trend..ppl keep iphones fr calls n showoff bt always hv another device on the side fr daily drives. Im not making up..tell me if im wrong.Also the cam.. icrap users need to look beyond igimmicks for once n gv a handsons try at flahship android devices..ur apple only releases 1 fone a year that its fagship. u wll feel d difference once u realize a brand manufacturing 1fone a year still lags behind in specs n hardware compared to other brands.
To whosoever says not to comnt for not being an apple user..i hv used apple n switched to droid...im a tech enthu n i voice my opinion wen i see ppl crapping in d name of reviews!

Hi, folks. I have an iphone x with me and I have no problem about it. It has nice performance especially itÂ’s battery life. I only charge it once and itÂ’s already good in a day. I donÂ’t have to bring powerbank with me (well, except for long travels). I donÂ’t know why everyone here has negative feedbacks on the device. Maybe they do not have the an original iphone with them. 😳 So far, my experience with iphone x is better than what everyoneÂ’s saying here. What I even love about it is that it canÂ’t be easily intruded with virus. 😊
Hate the design.
Too expensive and not worth the prize.
I believe apple lie about specs for marketing purposes. I feel let down when they release this phone.
Battery life? I feel ashame. lol
Face ID recognition, oh please, not worth it.
