Remember that chunky chin below the screen? iPhone X however doesn't have it, only a cutout on top which is half the width and nearly one third of the thickness, while the borders of the screen are symmetrical all-around. iPhone X started the trend of notches, while not being the first to introduce it, because Apple influence indicates the market, design, camera, and any other mobile component, while everyone else follows.
I still do not know why OEMs keep wasting money on hardware/software for these bokeh.
- Small sensors will never give proper shallow DOF necessary for Bokeh.
- Always part of the subject is cut by defocused area. Like hair and shoulder. Even worse when part of the background has different amount of blur compared to another part of the picture or not even any blur.
- 52 mm equivalent is far from being good. At least 200 mm is necessary.
- They require the subject to be less than 2m away from the phone.

I had also experienced few app crashes in iOS. I hadn't experienced any of the issues you said about. Please be realistic. None of my friends who are using Androids complained about lag, and all of them are using flagships.
camera still loses to Pixel 2 in still images , makes you wonder about Pixel 3 camera quality .. still Portrait shots are interesting , nice upgrade over the last gens , but to pay that much of money for slightly better portraits and high performance that even if it was exactly two times less i won't notice it at all? nah thanks apple .

Android is not well known for fluidity no matter how much users will claim that it does not lag to them...

I have been using my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for 5 years now. Waited every single year for Samsung to come up with something better more innovative. That never truly came. My Note 3 was a flagship at time it came out, pricing the same as the IPhone 5s was.
I still cannot get over the fact that I spent the same amount of money on the Note3 as the IPhone 5s cost that time, but 5 years later the iPhone 5s is running on the latest IOS and my Note 3 had only a single cycle of OS update.
This is a huge fact that nobody seems to be grasping at. 5 years of OS updates versus 1. Just red an article couple of days ago, that the Samsung S7 reached the end of its life cycle and will not get any updates anymore. Not to forget the Samsung S7 was also not cheap when it came out.
I always read how restrictive IOS is etc and how customisable Android is. Which is also not quite true. I have apps on my 5 year old phone I have never used but cannot get rid off as they came preinstalled. Aside from the stock android most versions come with a skin and a ton of bloat ware. I find this highly anoying.
I did consider myself an android fan, hence still using my old phone, but the above made me reconside things.
Honstley I find Apple's pricing strategy disgustingly agressive and overpriced, therefore I'm still indecisive wich phone to go for the X or XS.
Duel83, 26 Sep 2018Huawei was actually very wrong https://youtu.be/T4HdURgi_5MI bought the iPhone Xs max and the battery life does not impress me. I use my phone mainly for web browsing and my redmi note 4 lasts 40% longer than the iPhone.
I think complete too off joke. Looks no different from the last year's iPhone.
Huawei was right *passes power bank* you'll need these. Still no improvements on Iphones battery life.

Would not turn back to android now that I've seen things can be done better and stress-free.
"The whole Android market just copied Apple's notched approach and now the scene is overwhelmed with such phones."
And they 1st started to copy bezzless design from Xiaomi Mi Mix ;)
Someone on weibo says it Xr and Xs will earn 100 and 104 points for camera.
XZ2p, Mate 20, Pixel 3 and Mate 20 Pro would be above with 105, 107, 107 and 116.
The review highlights the many things iphones can do very well, which android phones can do the same or differently, and actually do even better. What the review doesn't reveal is just how limited, restrictive, convoluted and jurassic iOS is, compared to android as regards simple customizations/personalization, file transfers, screen share, true multitasking and split screen, etc. I beg to disagree with gsmarena. You're buying an iPhone for the prestige and personal image, first and foremost - not for its smartphone functionality or user experience because its truly a horrible locked prison user experience. That's essentially what the iPhone is unless all you do on iphones is take photos for Facebook, watch YouTube, play Candy Crush, and call and text. If those are the only things you do, then certainly, you won't see just how inutile is the user experience is in iOS. Again, I beg to disagree with gsmarena. You're not paying for the user experience. You're paying for the prestige more than what the phone truly capable of. And what it's capable of is a far cry from what android can do.
Hi, who buys this cellphone, love your money.
