First time Apple user here and iPhone X is the only iPhone that convinced me. I've been using flagship android phones for 9 years and I can say that the iPhone X is a lot better than all of them.

CptPower, 19 Jan 2018Agree. Not even a twins have same fingerprint.The problem is Apple is moving forward. They are trying to get rid of old tech.
Chisslegrog, 19 Jan 2018My main problem is that objectively speaking, it's nothing special. Looking at other manufactu... moreI switched from Note 5 to iPhone X and I can say that this is the best phone that I've ever used!

If I'm gonna hire someone I'm sure that I'm not gonna hire someone who can't even do a very simple task like using a smartphone lol.
"We're glad Apple has adopted the Qi wireless charging standard instead of inventing one of their own." Don't give them ideas!
I read "we did have a couple of unfortunate and entirely random drop tets between us and the phones survived without any visible form of damage".
Im not so sure i trust people who drop their phones at random, you demand so much from FaceID but you dont even expect the users to be able to hang on to their phones? I am getting doubts that this is real life usage, seems like an extended review period where the main areas of focus is almost as narrow as in a regular review. Lets Face it, this review doesnt go very deep, its skindeep and short and not down to detail in any other area than FaceID.

I think you have too low standards and dont demand much from your smartphone, seems its just a toy to you. I totally understand why you cant have an iPhone but try to look at it from a non-toy point of view, users who want a phone to just do its job without having to go through a ton of tweeks, the time you use to play with your phone is time we dont have. If youre really an experienced android user it must be easy to see why its not useful to everyone. I sold my last Android phone the same day i got it (a few months back only), when the google folder had more than 99 new notifications i simply didnt have time to go through with it, android is so high maintenance its impossible to use for professional users with real jobs.
Thank you for this article. I was searching specifically for a long term review & found this one. Being on the fence about whether I wanted to upgrade specifically because of the lack of Touch ID I found this article exactly what I needed. Looks like my next iPhone will have to be the 8plus but I sure hope Apple considers implementing Touch ID somehow into whatever replaces the X.
Which is better to buy iphone 8 plus or the iphone x? I am planning buy one.
Review was nicely done. Non-biased. I actually agree with most of the things. Especially the annoying things. I mean, overall the phone is not bad. Just that at least let me turn off the home indicator. I love playing games and god is that home indicator irritating.
Until they sort out Siri I will never buy an iPhone. Google now/assistant kicks the living bajeezes out of Siri

Apple's Facial Recognition works really well and I like it better than even a front FP scanner like on my old Edge S7, in the dark or with the light on.

And by the way, we don't actually need that as the ONLY or PRIMARY option, heard of a finger print scanner? Yeah yeah awkward position and all, but at least we have one. You're defensive cause you know the fact yourself that a FP scanner is WAY better than facial ID. I don't see any IP 7 and below users defending the way you did mate.
