Next few months? :D it's coming end of the year or next year. Also what you mean by something to cry about? I see zero reason to buy foldable phone and sales wise i doubt it will be any kind of hit.
Everytime when you want to use your device you have to unfold it and sametime they say Face ID is slow :)
@varcor: Try searching the best smartphones to date and you will see that iphone X is always on top on many websites! The price was seriously taken into consideration but they canÂ’t deny how great it is. DonÂ’t compare the iphone 8 to iphone X cause they differ in many ways and you can set them apart even by a single look! Now compare the Samsung Galaxy S9 to S8... they are indistinguishable unless you look at their rear view and dig deep into their softwares! Lol Now do you think it is worth the upgrade? Besides there are a lot of manufacturers out there that produce android phones from time to time. It seems like android users canÂ’t get enough. Buying one can confused you a lot and can eventually make you feel you made the wrong choice. :)
You are right.. android phones may have long existed with these seemingly advance features of the iphone X and these can even be seen in their mid-range line up but why would people prefer a more expensive iphone SE with smaller screen, less features and with limited storage? Why do people prefer iOS? Why?? I hope this question does not bother you..

Prior to introduction Apple put for... moreWell thatÂ’s the problem you heavily rely on papers and reviews from a third a party, they can be in favor of either one of them, depending who sponsors them. Samsung just released their oversaturated samsung galaxy s9 ( I say oversaturated because the display is digusting in real person and not as pleasant as the iphone X) so Samsung invest a lot to market the phone and that includes sponsoring a lot of reviewers and bloggers in favor of them. Lol. The Face ID feature of the iphone X automatically unlocked the phone as soon as you look at it and It can be faster when you turn off the option Â“requires attentionÂ” but it doesnÂ’t necessarily open the phone cause you have to swipe it up and by no means it isnÂ’t slower than the S9. Iphone X works differently cause it doesnÂ’t bring you automatically to the homescreen instead notications will show you the detailed messages to look over to. You see you donÂ’t get everything on youtube reviews unless you use the phone yourself and know the workaround! I have the phone for about three months now and the battery life is quite impressive; it stays at 100% after a couple of hours with minor use. And it last for a day and a half with average use before you need to Plug it again. This phone with only 2, 716 MAH battery does rediculouly compete to the flagship android phones with more than 3k MAH battery! WhatÂ’s to complain about? The iphone X is super smooth and the screen responds to your touch so fast unlike the android phones wherein you need to apply a certain level of intensity that sometimes you need to press it harder to get it work. ThatÂ’s insane! Apple made a huge and a radical change to their 10th anniversary flagship phone with the design, technology and gesture based features. For the past few years apple just keep recycling the looks of their iphones with minor upgrade each year but not with the iphone X. In exchange it is released with an eye watering price tag but what do you expect from apple? Their products are no cheap since theyÂ’ve been producing electronic devices! The only setback that comes with this phone is the price cause most people canÂ’t afford it; and thatÂ’s the main reason why the sales declined. But If you havenÂ’t got a high-end phone yet and if you have the money and you are used to the ios! It is definitely worth the upgrade!

Prior to introduction Apple put forth it was a revolutionary game changing device with the intent of convincing users who own Apple iPhones and Android Smartphones to justify ponying up for the most expensive device ever produced or in a simpler term, build value. If you're an Apple user the device has significant features not found on earlier iPhones. OLED Display, Glass Case, Quick Charging, Face ID and a faster Chip. If your a Android Smartphone User these features aren't revolutionary or game changing as they've been embedded to various devices for years. Nor is the iPhone X Camera a game changer as it's the same as iPhone 8's. The OLED Display certainly isn't the next generation since we know it is supplied by Samsung and old news for many Smartphone devices. The feature Apple really pushed to the forefront was Animoji's. I suppose you can label that a revolutionary feature however I don't think it influenced an average person's buying decision to a large degree or built much value.
When the iPhone X arrived it's most glaring defect was found in the batteries. While Apple apologized, it never admitted a mistake. It didnt follow Samsungs pledge to overhaul its battery technology or increase battery stamina to 95% of capacity after two years (as Samsung did). It also didnt copy LG or Google by increasing smartphone warranties to two years and covering the battery as part of this. Instead iPhone owners got an 11 month window to replace defective iPhone batteries at a reduced cost, the reiteration when Apple quietly slowed your iPhone down without warning it was a feature owners should appreciate. And finally the suggestion that in future it is the responsibility of mainstream users to monitor their iPhone battery condition and act according rather than Apple.
Of course iPhone users will point out its lightening fast Bionic Chip and top tier Benchmark Scores, how smooth and flawless the UI is and how the iPhone never lags. In the past those were valid considerations but not now. First off, comparing Cross Platform Devices is difficult if not impossible due to inherent differences and requirements of Andriod and Apple's Software Platform Architectural Composition. Recent Speed Tests reflect Facial ID is much slower on the iPhone X and a variety of Apps open, run and preform at similar speeds for the Andriod and iPhone Flagship Devices.
Something that isn't well known is the A11 Chip has chart busting speed when the device is cold, once it warms up it speed drops significantly.
"When were looking at competitor devices we see only the the iPhone X able to compete with the last generation Snapdragon 835 devices - however with a catch. The A11 is severely thermally constrained and is only able to achieve these scores when the devices are cold. Indeed as seen from the smaller score of the iPhone 8, the SoC isnt able to sustain maximum performance for even one benchmark run before having to throttle."
End users don't share identical needs or desires for their devices and there's a degree of familiarity and loyalty which compel users to stick with a particular brand however when viewed from a value based model, iPhones are losing their competitive edge and market share even as their corporate profits are skyrocketing. Fanboy can ignore what I've shared and bloviate over his beloved iPhone until the cows come home but he can't change the FACTS! With respect to Anonymous inferring I've never owned an iPhone and can't afford the iPhone X, it doesn't deserve a response.
I'll stand by my original OPINION, the iPhone X is a good device, not a great one.

You are sharing your opinion based on others. Given that it is an expensive phone then donÂ’t buy it. There are other phones out there that suit your poor judgement. Stop crying over and over cause you canÂ’t have it. Get over it and donÂ’t drool around saying that iphone X users are not happy with their purchase! Lol. I have tried The overhyped samsung galaxy s9. Not much of a difference from the S8. There are a lot of hiccups when navigating; it was just not as smooth as the iphone X and the oversaturated display is not impressive at all!

Every time you tout Apple features and pricing the facts don't back you up. In the real world the 3 most important features for consumers are Display, Camera and Price. Unfortunately for Apple the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is the winner over the iPhone X in all 3 categories. When the Galaxy X arrives in a few months, Applehead's will really have something to cry about :o)
Expensive hope less give up For the simple people, What if poor. Never mind
Wow, i love the new Iphone X!!!
i love the faster processor and the image quality is amazing. i got it last week and i love it.
the only drawback is that the price is kinda expensive.
I went to the store to check out the Samsung galaxy s9 and to convince myself that it has better display than my iphone X. I just canÂ’t believe that displaymate ranked the galaxy s9 as the best and better than the iphone X. It looks like exactly the same with s8, still oversaturated and painful in the eyes. Lol

Going all Mr. T on on the gsmarena forum.
Ram, 07 Mar 2018Hi friends all other brands mobile is coming with 4gb 6gb and 8gb ram but i phone till with 3g... moretrust me , the 3gb ram of iphone ,is still far better than the 6gb of android ,because depends the quality you put on it , if u buy one Fiat 100.000 $ , and one Mercedes-benz 100.000 $ as well, which is much better ? of course benz ,because depends in its quality :)
AnonD-741177, 05 Mar 2018what happened with the fingerprint under the display? Did apple lie about that?They never said it, it was a rumor that had no connection with apple or reality whatsoever.
Ram, 07 Mar 2018Hi friends all other brands mobile is coming with 4gb 6gb and 8gb ram but i phone till with 3g... moreI can answer that with a question. Android has increased RAM at a high pace, but never did it translate into increased performance, once they got 4GB the Androiders were already yelling for 6-8GB. Now they got 8GB and still want more, they refuse to admit that the reason for Androids poor performance has nothing to do with RAM. So the question becomes WHY INCREASE RAM WHEN IT CLEARLY DOESNT HELP?
iPhones have no performance problems with or without 3GB RAM, if it wasnt for the high resolution of the X display 2GB would be more than enough. Just go on ebay and buy a used iphone SE, it has "ONLY" 2GB RAM but once you prolong heavy benchmarks and things get warm it starts beating the newest flagships from Sony, Samsung which will then suffer under heavy thermal throttling. With a dualcore CPU and 2GB RAM.
