Im sorry but this phone is absolute garbage very overpriced
it looks like a kids phone, Amoled screen has been on Samsung's for years
Android phones gives the user a Customizable experience
Adding a new theme having a specific apps button, far superior cameras than I-phone's and the design of android devices change every couple years
i can get Similar Spec's in a phone half the price of this
Hi, I¬íve seen a couple of posts about this issue and I am having the same problem. When trying to take a portrait picture using the rear camera I always get the message ¬ďmove further away¬Ē Force closing the camera app, turning the phone off or force resetting it has NO effect. However, resetting all settings does bring the functionality back for a short period of time before the fault re-occurs. I have also performed a DFU reset of the phone, again, this restores functionality for a short time before it fails again. I would assume this is therefore a software bug, but it does not seem widespread enough - although there was a patch in a recent update to do with the telescopic focus... I¬ím wondering if this broke the feature for me? Either way, where do I go from here... I suspect the Genius Bar will say, reset again, but that gives me functionality for up to 1 week... this is not really acceptable for a £1000 phone. Any ideas?

The tech itself doesn't care If you are in dark, pitch-black or daylight If you are using it right, it will work every time just like your tv remote.

I find it interesting how some people that will defend Apple on anything claim Face-ID works perfect in any situation, when reviews and actual users around will tell it's not perfect and has it's issues in specific situations.

I actually own the X, why people are perhaps claiming this I assume because at very low light / pitch black your generally lying down with the phone at your stomach so yes it¬ís not perfect but it¬ís far from bad and far from annoying and certainly not a deal breaker like every ipX hater makes out . the pros far outweigh the cons and hey at least it something from the norm..

That story is all over the Internet. Also, if your facts are flawed, then there is no reason for me not to point that out. And it seems like you're the one who attacked me with no source.

And it's hard to crack and it hasn't been cracked so far: https://www.wired.com/story/tried-to-beat-face-id-and-failed-so-far/
In other words it doesn't matter what issues it has. They like their iphones no matter what.
Amount of "high quality" apps.... Yeah. .. because only apple has those. Especially on the buggy ios 11

What are you talking about? Face ID works perfectly even in pitch-black, it uses infra red, you clearly mixing it with those crappy Samsung face recognition etc.

On the ID-part. While a very wet finger may cause unlocking problems, you can add several prints so you may have that one dry finger to help out. Face-ID for example doesn't do very well in ill-lit spaces, let alone in the dark surrounding, where the FPS has no issues unlocking your phone.

Apple has presumably done its homework on facial unlock, since they are staking the future of Apple Pay on it. It's been months since the iPhone X has been out and there are no major issues with facial recognition. It works well, for the millions who use it.
And yes, the partial fingerprint scans on which virtually all phones rely today are not all that secure.
Owning both X versions for more than 3 months now with all possible charging devices, I couldn¬ít have said it better. I am an iPhone fan and user since the 3G and I do not feel uncomfortable with the X. On the contrary many things are done better now and I am sure that the future versions will polish out some insignificant glitches that always accompany all new radically changed models. Thanks for the review. Indicates a very neutral point of view and sticks with the facts.
By the way, any idea when Apple will allow 15W wireless charging?
Keep up the good work. We really appreciate it. Cheers.

Decided against iPhone x as I feel it is a beta version of future iPhone and isnt worth £1k with a lot of software / UI issues. Let us wait for 2018 iPhone when it will be refined. We will then have the media (and users) going all about how under cooked iphone x. Suddenly thr perfect phone of 2018 will not be as perfect.
I liked that GSMARENA.COM has taken an unbiased view and called out issues.

Have to say Face ID has worked flawlessly for me, and has been far less problematic than Touch ID which made me pull my hair out on numerous occasions for the reasons stated above. Each to their own though obviously.
