iPhone X Q&A: Ask us anything!
by Peter Kostadinov / Nov 08, 2017, 3:08 AM
Thinking of investing a thousand bucks on an iPhone X down the line but somewhat is still stopping you from pulling the gun? Understandable, although it's ground-breaking for an iOS device, many long-time Apple fans might not adapt to all the changes that easily. And then, that price tag...
Well, while we can't tell if you should or shouldn't buy the device, we can at least clear some of the misconceptions and uncertainties that some of you, potential adopters, could have.
Well, we happen to have a few units on us and feel confident enough to answer any question you might have about the device. Go ahead, ask us anything, we will do our best to answer comprehensively all that we can as soon as possible in a separate post in a few days or so.
Why is this so overpriced ? Will u guys ever stop posting apple sponsored ads?

No, they couldn’t find a solution to squeeze the forward facing camera and proximity sensor onto the front so they decided to put a notch onto the screen. Big difference. It’s funny how in denial ipx owners are becoming.

At the end of the day phoneareana.com is the website Android users love to hate. They don't read the article, instead they go strait to the comments section and join every other Android user in their daily circle jerk.

How come the phone is thicker than the 6/7/8 yet has an even bigger camera bump? Are Apple just becoming more incompetent at design every year they get further from the Jobs era?

Why did you use double standard on your review? i.e - Having wireless charging is a PROS for iPhones, but not on galaxies - Not having 3.5mm jack is a CONS for androids, but not on iPhones - Not having external storage is a CONS for androids, but not on iPhones - Fast charging written as PROS for iPhones, even tough it didnt include fast charger out-of-box and charge slower than most flagships (as reminder PA didn't write fast charging as note 8's and pixel 2s's PROS, even tough it's much faster) - and so on and I'm sure this comment will get deleted. But whatever, I just want to say it

Why did they give the iPhone such a powerful chipset, yet fail to give it: True multitasking Picture in Picture Some time of floating window Pencil support Themes (it's really time to change the U look) And why remove the FPS

Your personal and honest opinion - How is the display quality compared to Note8 (side by side). I can't believe that Iphone X has better display than Note8 (based on DisplayMate review).

Note 8 can push 1200 nits while iphone x can only barely push 638 nits so note 8 is superior.

Not according to DisplayMate, the X got their best display ever tested award. It also only hits up to 550 nits with full screen content It can only hit 1200 nits with low APL, meaning very little content on screen, aka useless. The X gets brighter and is the better display as confirmed by Display Mate IPhone X currently has the best display in a smartphone in the world right now until the S9

-----The iPhone X has a record high Full Screen Brightness for OLED Smartphones of 634 nits, which improves screen visibility in high Ambient Light. -----The Samsung Galaxy Note8 can produce up to 1,240 nits, but only for small portions of the screen area (Low Average Picture Levels) – for Full Screen Brightness the Note8 can produce up to 423 nits with Manual Brightness and 560 nits with Automatic Brightness only in High Ambient Light. -----For small portions of the screen area the iPhone X can produce up to 809 nits (Low Average Picture Levels). On its Home Screen the iPhone X produces an impressively bright 726 nits. See the Screen Brightness section for the measurements and details. http://www.displaymate.com/iPh
iPhone X can achieve 726 nits on the home screen, Note 8 only around 560 nits, a bit less bright, reread the 2nd sentence multiple times and get it through the peon brain, Note 8 can't hit no where near 1200 nits unless its very little stuff on screen (low APL), aka most of the screen is black and off, Note 8 can go higher in low APL situation but its truly useless and will never occur in real world situation as we actually use our phones and don't have 95% of the screen off (think Always on Display but even less stuff on screen)
The X is the noticeably brighter screen in essentially every scenario, also the better panel as confirmed by DisplayMate

PA, you asked “What’s stopping me from buying the X?” -that uglyass notch -my 7 still works perfectly fine -forced to pay an additional $150 to avoid that 64GB storage -that notch! -apple’s blatant disrespect for the number 9 -I refuse to call it the 10, its an eX!
