Apple iPhone X fails to hit the mark

Company confirms it’s aiming for a 2018 launch

The Galaxy Note 9 might be Samsung's first foldable smartphone

The charging pad that Apple said will be made by 3rd party manufacturers will be able to charge all of your Apple wares such as the iPhone X, Apple Watch and AirPods all at once. Samsung has this feature too, but it doesn't appear to be as advanced as Apple's.

The Galaxy S8 comes to the table with a 5.8-inch 570 ppi display working at 2960x1440 resolution. Apple copied OLED's edge-to-edge display from Android devices, including the Xiaomi Mi Mix and Samsung Galaxy S8. The device is easy on the eyes and packs powerful hardware under the hood.

Another obvious area for iPhone X vs iPhone 8 comparison is the size of the two handsets.

The phone's actually smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus (launched simultaneously with the iPhone 8 and X) - but it's got a whopping 5.8in OLED screen, described by Apple as 'Super Retina' (translation: it's sharp). When it comes to industrial design, though, the changes have been incremental at best. Samsung is the king of smartphone screens.

The iPhone X will be speedier and much more powerful, it will also have a better front-facing camera, and manages to be more efficient in its screen-to-body ratio.

Apple says refurbished phones include a new battery and outer shell, and have a one-year warranty. Some won't have the technology that lets you pay by phone at store registers.

Culling out the home button makes it workable for the iPhone to up its screen-to-body proportion and get a magnificent edge-to-edge show.

You could argue that the iPhone X manages to use its form factor more efficiently, in terms of space.

Its roof is shaped like a giant Macbook, the largest ever.

The SLiM technology is a turn-key 3D camera module that delivers real-time depth sensing and 3D point cloud generation with high resolution and high accuracy performance for both indoor and outdoor environments.

The most obvious benefit of a bezel-less phone? Battery life is two hours longer than the iPhone 7, it's overwhelmingly faster and an integrated graphics processor means new AR apps and 3D games. It is the chipmaker's current flagship and is found in phones like Sony Xperia XZ, the US variant of the Samsung S8 and the recently launched HTC U11. Android, on the other hand, has dropped from 18% to 10% in the same time period.

While the iPhone X looks like a highly desirable smartphone, it's a leap forward for iPhones, not smartphones as a whole. (In spite of the fact that the iPhone X still has one). "It has been a great experience collaborating with Himax on the project to enable 3D computer vision technologies in smartphones, virtual reality and augmented reality products". Apart from the AR features, which genuinely sound pretty cool, most of the revolutionary new features introduced in the iPhone X have been already seen on Android phones quite some time ago. A substantial number of existing iPhone users hoping to update would need to purchase the iPhone X. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are just minor upgrades over the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Unfortunately, the seamless integration enjoyed between Android devices and Google services is not replicated in the integration of iOS and Google services.

Apple users have three new iPhones to choose from once pre-order begin this September.

The 64GB storage variant has been priced at CNY 3,299 (Rs. 32,300), the 128GB storage variant has been priced at CNY 3,599 (Rs. 35,300) and the 256GB storage variant has been priced at CNY 3,999 (Rs. 39,200). The phone also brings with it a more than capable 8-Megapixel selfie camera.

Bezel-less display had been Samsung's thing for a while, till this year almost everyone jumped on the bandwagon. With the iPhone X retailing at a hefty $999, the iPhone 8 certainly looks an excellent buy at $699. Edge to Edge display will soon become a norm in smartphone industry.
