Apple iPhone X long-term review

18 January 2018
The introduction of Face ID and the removal of the Home button has resulted in a paradigm shift in the way we interact with our iPhones. Three of us have been using the iPhone X since launch and this long-term review covers what the iPhone X is like to live with on a day to day basis and we are ready to answer what's good and what's bad about it from a different perspective.

      Ipx in my area only got one major problem, which is the face id.
      Most of my friends whose using ipx including me face the same problem which is our face id is faulty right after the warranty expired.
      Lol, i sent mine to switch service center but its gonna cost me alot.
      So basically, im using my ipx without that face id till now.
      Im planning to switch to ip pro max & hoping this issue wont happen again with the new model.

            But with XR you lose the OLED screen with bigger resolution, premium stainless steel build, dual back camera

              Instead of an a11 iPhone X you get an A12 iPhone xr with some compromises here and there however you will get more for your money because not only you are getting an improved internals but extra year of support as well and that comes far more than a 100 dollar difference

                Too bad that Apple discontinued the phone instead of keeping it at a lower cost. I would buy this phone for 750€ instead the XR

                  IMO: This is the best phone for now, perhaps before I try the XS Max/XS/XR phones.

                  I don't mind using other phones even android, any phone has its pluses and minuses,..
                  But this is the best phone, the benchmark point, the pigeoned source, role model for other phones.

                  Great work by Apple, as always

                      Its very unfortunate that many people have gotten iphone 8 and 8+ instead of the X due to a few users having issues, the loss is immense, and i know a few who regret deeply. For our family iPhone X has been pure delight, no disadvantages, no FaceID issues, it seems that NORMAL USE doesnt cause the problems reviewers encounter with their experimenting and testing.

                        Is the iPhone X considered the latest state of art compared to other phones??

                              iPhone X is a wonderful phone for me to use on a daily basis. Face ID is fantastic and I feel that it is the only face recognition system out there that I feel is secure enough to be used for banking.

                                hi guys

                                how come no one ever mentioned this "Ghost touch"issue iphone X is having?
