$1.100 with 75h endurance rating and no fast charge provided, the best phone on earth!
Nothing new. Comments filled with hate comments not a single positive mentioned. :D
Regardless of comments it's an amazing device as nobody cares what the haters think :)

A Lamborghini is difficult to drive on the streets, but that is not the only car they have.
This reviewer is either too lenient when he writes about cons of iPhone.
So,please allow me to add some cons
1. Notch is there to cut off the good experience of gaming, watching videos and web browsing.
2.Huge camera bump at the back makes the phone imbalance and easier to be smashed the camera lens cover unintentionally.
3. Apple is too stingy to put the dongle and faster charging brick + cable after charging like $1,100 for the base model.
4. Quite expensive to fix the glass of the phone.
5. No 3.5mm audio jack for quality audio output( pleas try not to defend that it is the future because there are proofs all over the internet that dongle are selling a lot to the iph users, just go and google it)
6. No pro mode in camera setting yet,really? where are we,in 2013?
7. The notch thingy is a tricky thing cos if it really cuts off its actually screen usability size is about 6.3 inches only with some resolution cut off.
Bonus- Charge gate as iphones stopped charging when in stand by mode, but apple did not admit, they just put the blame on the users as "the users' fault" !
The moment the iPhones got released this year they had an issue straightaway.
-Charging is slow with the provided charger
-It's iOS and it has a ton of restrictions, especially customization-wise
-The most expensive smartphone with absurdly costly storage upgrades
-(Cr)Apple, please put the camera settings in the camera where they belong already!
-No 3.5mm jack since iPhone 7, now since iPhone XS / XS Max / XR, we need to pay for a $$ dongle, come on! PUT the 3.5mm jack where it belongs like iPhone SE, iPhone 6S and below for convenience, practicality and logical sake!
-No microsd slot since Original iPhone 2G, come on! It's 2018 already! It's been MORE THAN 10 years and you couldn't bother including it at least on proper dual-SIM models like a hybrid slot for example! Everyone should have CHOICES where they want to store! NOT everyone wants to store data in a cloud!
-No fast charger in the box, come on! It's 2018 already! Yet we have to "donate" $$ to get fast charger. Even your closest rival, *cough* Sams*** *cough* has one in the box!
-FUGLY NOTCH since iPhone X. Its hideous! Just like the upcoming Pixel 3 XL! That blocks the full-screen experience when playing games / watching videos etc.
-No home button since iPhone X. How is that going to be easy for a first time iPhone buyer? Using gestures?? What if the screen gets cracked at the bottom, you can't go back to the home screen & you're pretty much f****d.
-No Touch ID since iPhone X. (Cr)Apple, at least implement it in the power button! Not EVERYONE wants to use Face ID because of security, privacy reasons!
-eSim in some dual-SIM models. How is it convenient and practical? You can't just take the eSIM out, it's locked in the slot into one carrier and you're pretty much f****d when traveling to other countries.
There, editor, fixed it for you.
"Here is a quick reminder of how weirdly some of the Control Center toggles work. A tap on Wi-Fi or Bluetooth disengages all connections, but it doesn't turn off these features. According to Apple this way you will keep AirDrop active and yet won't be connected to anything until the next morning (or until you manually initiate the connection). That's fine, but we have to dig in settings to turn those off when we really need to, which is a step backward."
(Cr)Apple wants the battery on iPhones to get weaker faster so that every year sh***s will buy it as usual. More $$ for (Cr)Apple.
"Starting with the 2018 lineup Apple no longer includes a Lightning to 3.5mm audio adapter in the retail package of its iPhones, which means that we were unable to perform our audio quality test. We could have used an adapter from the iPhone X, but since the adapter contains a built-in DAC, the output would be representative of the adapter rather than the new iPhone XS Max."
See, (Cr)Apple, that is why you should have the 3.5mm jack reinstated back to where it belongs to perform audio test.
I thought the more efficient a12 bionic would finally improve apple's long-standing battery life mediocrity. I was wrong.
Kudos to P20 Pro for its outstanding cameras. It will be interesting to see how Mate20 Pro able to take over the low light photography crown from P20 Pro.
If you don't put highly emphasis on camera performance, pocophone F1 is a good option. After all, making money is not easy.
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2018I mean 1 monochrome + 1 RGB can catch as much light as 4 RGB sensors. Huawei loves to lie, so ... moreHuawei doesn't execute their ideas well, but that doesn't mean that they don't work. Sony just started doing it and it was very successful.
XZ2 Premium allows the users to use both sensors at any lighting condition when in Manual Mode, but it's unnecessary anyway.
The AUBE™ Fusion ISP also helps keep the image bright yet noise-free even with very high ISO values.
P20 Pro's ISO 102400 image is terribly noisy, while XZ2 Premium's ISO 51200 image is nicely clear and clean.
Should have mention about

XZ2 Premium will never use both in good lighting, unless you force it ( at cost of base ISO 200 instead of 40). Also you can't be too close because fusion goes wrong.
Weird that nothing of this happens to Huawei phones...
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2018I would love to know how even P9 does the same of Xz2 Premium without the dedicated hardware. ... moreAll high-end Kirin chipsets after Kirin 950 have got dual ISP that can deal with and fuse two images from different sensors instantly. It doesn't work for video unlike AUBE that XZ2 Premium have because of latency issue, but it's a lot faster for processing photos. P20 Pro only uses RGB and monochrome sensor together when zooming in though.
alski10, 01 Oct 2018Only 15% larger battery than the X, higher resolution, larger screen, more powerful and still ... moreSoftware also was improved for standby time, but for a 7nm SoC, I expected even more. But I could understand because 3200mAh battery powering a 6.5" screen isn't really anything of a battery beast, regardless of the chipset architechture.
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2018I would love to know how even P9 does the same of Xz2 Premium without the dedicated hardware. ... moreWhat, 4 RGB sensors?? LMAO that's not how it works.
The monochrome sensor could capture 3x as much light as a similar RGB sensor counterpart, and the P9 only combines the light information of the monochrome sensor to the RGB sensor to produce a much cleaner, clearer, and more pleasing image.
But the P9 not only had small sensors, its ISP wasn't really capable of doing as much as the XZ2 Premium.
The AUBE™ Fusion ISP of the XZ2 Premium could combine the monochrome and RGB image in real time, while the P9's ISP can't, and it's just on the software processing that the combination occurs.
You're not like working with 4 RGB sensors, you're simply getting 2 sensors, one dedicated to detail capturing and the other for color information.
