iPhone X vs. Galaxy S9+ shootout

 

So which phone do you get when you part ways with your Google Pixel 2 XL? If you are after a great camera, chances are you are going to pick either the iPhone X or the Galaxy S9+. Well, this is exactly what happened to two of our editors.

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.

Apple iPhone X review: Embrace the new normal

 

The iPhone X is the most radical change to the iPhone formula ever, and despite some concerns, Apple has built a seriously impressive machine. We love its build quality and comfortable design, not to mention its expansive screen and great performance....

Impeccable build quality ; Face ID generally works well ; Great performance ; Good main cameras get even better

The lack of a home button takes some getting used to ; Not all apps use the whole screen ; Portrait selfies are hit-or-miss ; Battery life could be better

At the end of the day, here's what you've got to remember: this isn't just an expensive, ambitious offshoot of the classic iPhone lineage. It's the future of the iPhone itself. And to be clear, Apple didn't get absolutely everything right. The notch is...

iPhone X: Still the best iPhone, but its successor is expected soon

 

The iPhone X is still king of the Apple smartphone hill. But 7 months after its release, it's time to look towards its inevitable iOS 12-powered replacement.

The iPhone X delivers a great blend of handheld comfort and a big, gorgeous 5.8-inch OLED screen. The rear-facing telephoto camera outshoots the iPhone 8 Plus in low light, and the front-facing camera snaps impressive portrait mode selfies. Face ID...

The iPhone X is nearly certain to be replaced by a newer, better model in less than 3 months, but remains hella expensive in the meantime. The all-glass body means a case and an insurance plan are musts. Shorter battery life than iPhone 8 Plus.

iPhone X remains a winning evolution of the iPhone, but at this point, you’re better off waiting for what Apple has on deck in September.

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

 

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.

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...

Review: iPhone X

 

This is not the future of smartphone tech. But the iPhone X is still really, really nice.

Gorgeous design. Face ID is a great idea, mostly well executed. Lots of cameras, all of them excellent. It's faster and smoother than whatever phone you're using now.

A grand is a lot to spend on a phone. Apple's love of simplicity sometimes makes everything more complicated. Goodbye, stealthy phone-checking.

Apple iPhone X Smartphone Review

 

No revolution. Apple launches the iPhone X for the iPhone's 10th birthday, which is sold in addition to the "regular" iPhones. The highlight is obviously the OLED screen with very slim bezels. The concept works really well in practice, and we did not...

great display with True Tone ; powerful SoC ; nice design ; great build quality ; fast Wi-Fi performance ; Bluetooth 5.0 ; many supported LTE bands ; very good dual-camera ; IP67

comparatively heavy ; storage cannot be expanded ; only 12 months warranty ; NFC functionality heavily limited ; no stereo jack

The specifications and features of the Apple iPhone X are very similar to the iPhone 8 Plus, but this is not a bad thing. The differences are important and they concern the visuals. Apple not only uses a 2:1 panel for the first time, it is also the...

iPhone X Review: This changes everything

 

Over the past few years I've openly cheated on my iPhones with Android and, on few occasions, with Windows Phone. Moving forward, as much as a serial cellular cheater can, I can see myself being monogamous with the iPhone X. Apple's most controversial...

New OLED display is beautiful ; Bezel-less design makes a big screen usable ; A11 Bionic processor is screaming-fast ; TrueDepth camera could be a game-changer

It's expensive ; Face ID has a learning curve ; The 'notch ; Apple repairs are more expensive than any other iPhone
