I noticed this new 5 STAR rating system which this iPhone got 4.3.. What gives?? GSMArena review is all about numbers and facts.. Brightness value in Cd not how many stars.. Loudspeaker value in dB not how many moons.. Battery life in hours not how many planets.. Contrast ratio, benchmark numbers, direct picture comparison not some BS score like DXO based on OPINIONS.. Seriously GSMA just stick to the facts and drop the star ratings..

The only good thing about iOS is great standby time, but even then Android is now getting the same great standby time as well especially with Android Nougat. iOS use times are weak because those single cores on the Apple Ax CPUs are power hungry.
Honestly I didn't even notice this review, I thought it was still the 8 Plus review on the front page and they just changed the background for some reason. Anyone else?

Look at the XPERIA XZ1 COMPACT, small compact design but still enough to put a decent battery. Both XPERIA XZ1 and XPERIA XZ1 COMPACT got better battery life than this!!!
So this basically needs to be charged all the time, nicely expensive corded phone. :-) Just like the old times without cell phones.
More like iPhone 6sss.
Mediocre battery life during use plus same boring design and low pixel density (any higher pixel density would make the mediocre SOT go even lower).
The design isn't timeless. It's the best version of a bad one (6 series). A design Apple took cues from HTC but made it uglier. I prefer the size of the 8 more than the Plus ones but it also has only 750p, about 30% worse battery life, and no Telephoto. The iPhone 8 series is underappreciated though thanks to the anticipation of the X.
8 = 4 & 6 design remixed
Strange, its as the picture quality is better then the 8 plus! Less watercolor effect...
This design is timeless and very refreshing in the technology world where things are outdated 6months in.

I dislike the X's ugly notch and glass rears. iOS11 seems buggy and not well optimized. Only 3gb RAM. SuperSaf proved 7 Plus has superior camera than 8 Plus. PhoneBuff proved Note8 is faster than 8 Plus. The 8 Plus has same SoC and amount of RAM as X while pushing less pixels.
Skip the X. People falling for the hype because it's the first new design in three years.
So, GSMArena, you forgot to mention that XZ1 Compact`s battery lasts almost TWICE as iPhone 8s`?
I guess that was unintentional, so better add that CRUCIAL info.
Akshually, iPhone 8 is the eleventh iPhone and X is twelth one.
X is named for 10th anniversary not for being 10th (that was iPhone 7).

Why is no one sounding the possibility that the reason why Apple decided to skip iPhone 7S and jump to iPhone 8 is that it did not want to seem to be behind Samsung, now that Samsung is on generation 8 of its Galaxy S series?
