Thesis86, 19 Jan 2018Apple die hards are better off with the 8 or 8 Plus. The X is just smh. No, X is lot better, in my opinion 8 is just waste of money, and you won't get much for return. X gives you whole new experience and it feels very fresh after all these boring mobile years.
Going from the galaxy s7 to the google pixel and now having the iPhone X , this is the first and only phone where I can honestly say I canÂ’t find a flaw, no issues with their new gestures at all , 48 hrs and IÂ’m not even thinking about how to do what, I actually find it slightly easier to navigate though as opposed to android and a lot more fluid , Face ID not perfect but damn close and not enough to bother me, maybe at night when ur lying down 1 in 10 youÂ’ll have to use the passcode.if that but yeah at least Face ID is a different direction in letÂ’s face it a staling android pack
Only gripe yeah itÂ’s expensive, and Apple charging for fast charge and maybe the glass back but price is also subjective having said that IÂ’ve never had a phone that performs so highly in EVERY single aspect and I would not swap it for any other phone currently on the market, wouldnÂ’t even flirt with the idea .. and this whole ip8 is the better choice ? If you donÂ’t have a problem with the Xs price youÂ’ve got to be kidding me.. as every other single review of the x states the best iPhone to date by far, including the 8
Apple die hards are better off with the 8 or 8 Plus. The X is just smh.
iPhone X havet som many problems and frustrations, Face ID is a total disaster, that only "die hard" Apple fans can love this overpriced phone!
For the rich
Pros : Getting laid is a walk in the park
Cons : None
For the less fortunate
Pros : None
Cons : Getting food is a walk in the park....Jurassic Park
Edupz, 19 Jan 2018Exactly. Fingerprints are unique but faces can be similar and thus easily mixed by Face ID.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2017/04/11/smartphone-fingerprint-scanners-could-easily-fooled-fake-prints/
Yep, you are wrong.
Edupz, 19 Jan 2018Exactly. Fingerprints are unique but faces can be similar and thus easily mixed by Face ID.Facial recognition can be fooled in about 1 per 1 million, while fingerprint scanner can be fooled in 1 in 50000.
Facial recognition, as done by Apple is more secure, period.
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2018Really secure.. What about the boy that could unlock his mom's iphone with his face? Or ... moreExactly. Fingerprints are unique but faces can be similar and thus easily mixed by Face ID.
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2018Because the Android implementation of face unlock was insecure and generally useless.
Apple... moreReally secure..
What about the boy that could unlock his mom's iphone with his face?
Or twins thatvcan unlockneach others phone.?
This review actually makes me believe that my decision to buy iPhone 8 plus has been a good one. While the design is a step into the future, it is not ready for prime and definitely not enough for me to part of £1000.

But by all means, don't buy it. You'll be missing on a great experience.
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2018Android 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 had face unlock.
Why treat X like first? Because the Android implementation of face unlock was insecure and generally useless.
Apple's implementation works really well and it's more secure than a fingerprint scanner.
Please continue with the long term reviews much more beneficial than a normal review. Can you pls do the note 8 next?
I thoroughly enjoyed this format. In fact, this type of reviews would matter more to any phone buyer. Keep up the amazing work. Cheers!
I honestly still can understand how is possible that someone could have spended even a penny in this phone. Perhaps it's because it's the most expensive that Apple has... I see it absolutely horrendous from any angle. If this is the base for future Apple's phones, don't count with me.
It would be interesting to know if Apple did a survey among its customers to promote this tacky design above other candidates.
Revert means going back, no need to say revert back. (Last page)
And liked the long term review, good job. The points mentioned under annoyances I completely agree with, especially face ID being less practical than fingerprint reader.
People have to remember that this is Apple's first attempt with this phone design, so of course it has major/ a lot of flaws. You don't buy the first product, you wait for the 3rd or 4th. This is when the company knows what its doing.
IÂ’m using the X since release and i will never return to touch ID, for me FACEID always works, the only time it doesnt work is when im in my bed.
The screen is absolutely gorgeous, with the right colors all the time.. I have the true tone setting turned of since the release because it makes the screen yellowish, but when my girlfriend uses my X she always puts on true tone because the normal setting hurts her eyes(she has a lazy eye).
The notch is there, but after a while you just dont see it anymore, i even start to like the notch because its different from all phones(except Essential ofcourse).
Also the gestures are the best, people claiming that closing down the apps are a pain in the ass, yes it is. But why the f*** would you close apps on an iphone when iOS puts them in a hibernation after a while. Closing and restarting the app uses more power than just keeping it Â“openÂ”, even apple claimed thats better for your battery life.
For me this iPhone is by far the best iPhone iÂ’ve ever had. ( iÂ’ve owned the 3GS, iPhone 5, 6 Plus and came from the 7 plus when upgrading to the X.
