The round button was iconic to apple, people recognized it was an iPhone just looking the front of the phone, but nobody complained about button as they are now complaining about the notch, it didn't spoil UX like notch is doing. look at Nextbit Robin, the phone wasn't a success for several reasons but one thing was unquestionable that it did have a unique and fresh design, it was easily recognizable from the bunch of smartphones and they didn't need to spoil user experience for it. The very fact that Apple could say 'screw the UX, we'll put branding first' is what I kept referring to as 'Apple's Arrogance'.

Also previous ly from front the circle home button is exclusively for apple no company can copy it... once people see it know it is expensive iphone... since now gone they need to do it with notch.... yes some say it is ugly... may be they can improve incoming new model they need to find better way to differentiate itself once seee it is iphone...
they can easily just follow samsung s8 but no body will know it is cheaper samsung s8 or cheapest china phone ca=os now all china bezelless follow samsung type....
other better screen to body ratio? are u sure... i dont think so.

So there you have it, going slim on bezels without messing up the UX, i don't know how to make it easier to understand that notch cuts status bar into half, no way to see all status bar icons without pulling the control center down, and as i said it's apple's arrogance that they think they can mess up ux just for branding and their customer base will tolerate it, you are exactly proving my point, cutting status bar into half or video content in full screen isn't subjective, it's out there in front of you, if people choose to put up with it, good luck.

bezelless trend is here to go whether u like it or not all manufacturer do it... i also like bezelless because u will has bigger screen and smaller size easier to fit in pocket...\
so the home button will be move to the back... yes as i said the notch is to differentiate bezelless phone this is expensive iphone....
u mean not convenient to swipe from top or bottom actually this is subjective... if u getting use to or do it everytiime u will not find it troublesome and inconvenient same as fingerprint case for me...
by the way apple to provide virtual home button? u know? with it u can do everything fast
no name1, 13 Dec 2017it is only if u familiar with it or not after u get use to the control it is better n u like i... moreFirst, It's not by preference but by compromise people went on the back side of the phone for fingerprint sensor for most part, The front had minimal bezels and with reduction in bezels manufacturers went on the back. The cut out on iPhone X is not there because of any constraint, it's there for branding, they could have had homogeneous bar like others but then it would look like others and that's the whole reason for the notch, to 'look' different than others. Not to mention now your status bar is cut in half, so that's not something related to preference, not to mention no fingerprint sensor, front or back. And as i said, it's Apple's arrogance based on their loyal consumer base, so people 'learn' to like reaching to corners of the top of the phone just because it's by apple, had any body else done that, tech community would have laughed in their face.
Totalbiscuit, 08 Dec 2017Yeah, branding is more important than user experience especially on a 1000$ phone, wonderful!!... moreit is only if u familiar with it or not after u get use to the control it is better n u like it... just like fingerprint sensor some like it at the back but I like it more in the front so it is a matter of do every time. if u use the back the front don't like not convenient... same as me for front.
Linas, 07 Dec 2017Except Rolex watches are not made in China on the budget. So it is more like fake Rolex knock ... moremade on budget? how much iPhone x cost? only $1000 compare to $ 100000 for relax. by the way iPhone brand for 2017 is higher ranking than a rolex...just google it... not to mention apple spend so much to have team to make software compare to other just take android and pay little $. This make it the seamless integration between hardware and software which make it fastest and apps developer specially develop it for apple.... added with best camera, best screen, longest update , highest brand ...it simply worth the $1000 or more. for the bug will be fix in next update... : D

Don't call in nicknames until you'll understand to the other's place!
no name1, 07 Dec 2017no u r wrong..... the notch is necessary to differentiate the expensive n highly brand iphone ... moreYeah, branding is more important than user experience especially on a 1000$ phone, wonderful!! I don't understand why it's necessary for phone to mess up the user experience for the heck of branding or differentiating itself, If it came at no UX cost i would not mind but the notch comes at user experience cost, full-screen videos have an ugly cutout, scroll bars hiding behind the notch, status bar losing half the screen real estate, people needing to reach absolute corners at the top for control and notification.... Notch is just Apple arrogance thinking that they can get away with something like that because of loyal customer base that accepts anything they make.....
Kiyasuriin, 07 Dec 2017shoot a whopping VIDEO in 6k? (5760x3240 px) and in 30 FPS!? You're dreaming mate. the cores a... moreI beg to disagree. Snapdragon 625 isn't a high end chip by any measure, still it does good quality 4K@30 fps, which is 8 Megapixel.
6K is 18.6 Megapixels, about double as high, which I think a powerful chip can do, if it supports it.
My thinking is that, the flash memory has to be really fast, and yes, this is an achievable target by Androids, although in lower overall quality probably.

no name1, 07 Dec 2017hahahahaha.....one is rolex watch and one is casio watch..... rolex watch also cant show more ... moreIphone isnt Rolex.
Iphone is china made superexpensive garbage with OS which never properly worked and every update more bug fixes comming and also more bugs.
Vertu is Rolex in this case not that Copycat Iphone.
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2017Most of the current high end chips couldshoot a whopping VIDEO in 6k? (5760x3240 px) and in 30 FPS!? You're dreaming mate. the cores are not powerful enough to process such a thing in android. (the Kryo 385 can do only 2680 points! and to do 6k@30FPS you need ATLEAST an I7 6600U level which is what A11 got!)
Twix, 07 Dec 2017Even if it was true, imagine iphone with 19MP camera.... do you think people will shoot 4K @ 6... moreSOME will. and SOME will not. the fact that iPhone does not have expandable memory does not mean people will not shoot in the said option. I myself prefer the typical 1080@30fps even though my iPhone can do 4k@60 FPS (work phone. My main one is Android.) but you can't predict what's one's decision. each will do their preferences.
Because it is not better phone than S8 or Note8, for the price you get it is very disappointing phone
no name1, 07 Dec 2017hahahahaha.....one is rolex watch and one is casio watch..... rolex watch also cant show more ... moreExcept Rolex watches are not made in China on the budget. So it is more like fake Rolex knock off which you buy for full price instead of genuine Japanese made Casio (though I would argue it is more like Seiko).

You get one of the most premium materials at around $400 and this goes to show that raw materials turned out to be as common as we all thought. Apple should've used those instead of their own manufactured glass and stainless steel.
