iPhone X review

 

Finally, the rebooted iPhone we've been waiting for

Great screen ; Premium, strong design ; TrueDepth camera is powerful

The most expensive flagship phone around ; Metal rim can scuff without case

The iPhone X was a huge gamble from Apple, but one that really paid off. Losing the home button and altering the design was a dangerous move, but one that was sorely needed after years of similarity and the premium design, extra power, all-screen front...

iPhone X Review: A huge step forward – at a huge cost

 

iPhone X review: Apple's most expensive phone ever is finally, but is it worth it? We fully review the future of the iPhone line.

Stunning screen ; Much-improved telephoto camera ; The best-looking iPhone ever ; Impressive battery life ; Face ID is so much better than a fingerprint sensor

Software needs more optimisation for the taller display and notch ; No fast-charging plug included ; Very expensive

During my time with the iPhone X, I’ve found that it sits between the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in terms of endurance. It hasn’t quite matched the two days I can get with the 8 Plus, but it can comfortably get through the day without a worry.

Apple iPhone X review

 

I came home late from my first day of testing the iPhone X. My wife sent me audio clips over iMessage from the kids after I sent them pictures of myself, now beardless. "O-M-G. I can't even recognize Daddy!"

A great blend of handheld comfort and a big, gorgeous OLED screen. Rear telephoto camera outshoots the 8 Plus in low light, and the front camera snaps impressive portrait selfies. Face ID generally works fine.

New interface and no home button mean major adjustments, and key features such as the Control Center are harder to reach and use. It’ll take time for most apps to be optimized for notched screen. The phone is hella expensive, and the all-glass design...

iPhone X is an overdue and winning evolution of the iPhone, but you’ll need to leave your comfort zone to make a jump into the face-recognizing future.

Apple iPhone X review: Great phone, but it's far too expensive

 

The new iPhone X unlocks with Face ID, has the largest display ever seen on an iPhone and dumps the home button - but it's just too pricey

Edge to edge display ; Face ID is brilliant ; Superb camera and screen

Too expensive

The answer to that question is no. The iPhone X is many things: it’s Apple’s best ever phone, it has an unbelievably good display, but there’s no way I could recommend it to someone when there’s a phone that’s just as good, if not better in some ways,...

Apple iPhone X review

 

Say goodbye to home buttons and bezels, the new iPhone X is the best Apple phone yet...

Fantastic screen ; Impressive audio ; Impeccable performance ; Attractive design & strong build ; Great battery life

No headphone jack ; FaceID not perfect

The Apple iPhone X makes major changes that not everyone will like, but the stunning screen more than makes up the difference

Apple iPhone X review

 

Apple says bye to bezels and buttons, and is all the better for it

Gorgeous screen - even with the notch ; Versatile camera takes great photos ; Slick OS runs beautifully on powerful hardware

Apps look odd without updates ; FaceID isn’t 100% accurate ; Super expensive

An iPhone that finally goes toe to toe with Android on raw specs - but the X gives up some of that signature Apple ease of use to do it

Apple iPhone X

 

The iPhone X sets the stage for Apple's next decade, with a sharp new design and a future focus on augmented reality.

Updated design. Powerful processor. Excellent screen. First-of-its-kind augmented reality front camera. Animoji are really fun.

Very expensive. Apps need to be reprogrammed to take advantage of display. Not the fastest modem.

Bottom Line: The iPhone X sets the stage for Apple's next decade, with a sharp new design and a future focus on augmented reality.

Apple iPhone X review

 

The iPhone X is the iPhone to buy this year.

Jawdropping OLED screen ; Unsurpassed speed ; Top-tier camera ; Innovative industrial design ; Wireless charging

Awkward notch can break immersion ; Expensive

The iPhone X is the iPhone to buy this year. Even from our initial impressions, we’re certain it’s well worth the high price tag, and early adopters are going to love it.

iPhone X review: face the future

 

The iPhone X is clearly the best iPhone ever made.

Excellent screen ; Face ID is simple and effective ; Stabilized zoom lens is great ; Animoji are super fun

Very expensive ; Early adopters will deal with unoptimized apps ; No headphone jack

All that adds up to the thing you already know: the iPhone X is a very expensive iPhone. For a lot of people, it’ll be worth it. For a lot of people, it’ll seem ridiculous. But fundamentally, it’s a new iPhone, and that means you probably already know...
