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’t 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.

next gen or not as I just said imo it’s the closest thing to the perfect phone ‘ in my opinion’... more refined ? Heard of software updates? Even without I got no gripes whatsoever with the x as is
So what your saying is next gen is always better than current flagships.. thanks for that lol

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.

I think you'd better do this long term review atleast a semester after the phone starting to sell. Review the q1 phones when the q3 phones release

waste of money thing, x become too expensive not because of the tech, it because of pattern license, 3rd party chip and of course American tax, as big company love to sue each other ,like apple sue Qualcomm, Qualcomm sue it back, then apple sue Samsung , then Samsung take back the amoled curve, then apple try to sue all printer company for limited life printer. people using law to against each other.

I don't know why the reviewers were having trouble with Face ID. Yes, at times you have to pick up the phone, but this is often more of an issue with having to pick up a phone which has the fingerprint scanner on the back.
I think that not being able to unlock a fingerprint scanner phone with damp or wet fingers is more annoying than having to look at the phone.
There are always things to complain about but overall the iPhone X is amazing and the best phone on the market for my money.
I appreciate the honest little frustrations, your previous iPhone X review made it seem like nothing was wrong with the hardware or software of the phone. Too much praise was given for the Face ID back then, now I know it is no big deal even compared to the Samsung Face ID. The amogi does seem nifty though, I expect entire CG stories and games to come out from that tech, perhaps they could even use that Kinect tech to scan entire body, not just face haha.
A good long term reviews guys. You should extend this long term reviews for up to 1 year of usage with half yearly updates.
It will be good to see how the beautiful glass back phones look like after extend usage especially without a protective case.
Call me old fashioned but I would prefer a steel back or even plastic if my internal are still flagship class ie chips and camera.
Please also give long term reviews for Samsung, Huawei
Duel, 19 Jan 2018No, X is lot better, in my opinion 8 is just waste of money, and you won't get much for return... moreNot really. It is a haphazard attempt to do what Palm mastered with the Pre eons ago with its gesture based system. 16:9 is just fine. I watched a video on my brother's X which wasn't optimized for the notch or the ratio and the video looked amazing in 16:9. That showed me 18:9 is utterly unnecessary. However, Apple isn't the only company I'm complaining about there. But if it were me, I'd get an 8 Plus. Better battery, FP sensor, same camera, same A11 bionic which is a monster. The 8 Plus is better value for money.
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2018Why? Most of the things they mentioned as things they did not like are pure subjective and I p... moreIt's not really subjective to have poor screen usage when the aspect ratio and apps are not making full utility of the screen or if they manage to then they are still being blocked by the notch which isn't subjective, it's logically a bad design choice or at least it has verifiable drawbacks. It may just be less bothersome to some people but ultimately it's not as good as having a full and useful scree space so it's a definite negative. It's like saying a car has a new feature like auto heating windows but it means the windows have annoying heating attachments that obscure your vision, might not bother everyone but it's not a feature without cost.
Between the high cost, the notch, poor use of screen space and (based on what the reviewers said) a face ID that doesn't work in all lighting situations perfectly then we have a few drawbacks of what is essentially a high quality phone but still nothing that is revolutionary and nothing that sets the bar in anything but a little performance tug of war. With the drawbacks it has it's not a bad phone but it's overpriced and if it wasn't for the closed eco system it wouldn't seem so impressive to iphone users either. Is it really that much better than a Samsung galaxy s8?
