The display left and right of the notch are just bonus. Apple could have got rid of them but decided to squeeze more screen real estate instead.

How do you work that out? The "ears were not added", a piece of the screen was removed creating the notch, therefore reducing screen real estate. People are just dumb sometimes.

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.

I want the know all about the dual camera on this one. Is it really all that ground breaking? Also how does it performs comparing to iPhone 8/8 Plus?

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?

Short answer is yes. Long answer is of course.

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

How much did Apple pay iPhoneArena?

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).

28. Peacetoall unregistered

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

31. mikehunta727 unregistered

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/iPhoneX_ShootOut_1a.htm 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

How does an unoptimized app for iPhone X look like? Black bar on top or the notch eats away some of the app.

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!
