Apple iPhone X users rate it almost perfect, cite three major advantages
Apple has apparently gone through prolonged soul-searching, and had to do a number of compromises in its first effort to make an "all-screen" phone that culminated with the iPhone X. Chief among those was the decision to ditch the home button with its integrated Touch ID finger scanner, and replace it with a Face ID biometric solution, achieved by the TrueDepth camera kit that brought along a "notch and horns" cutout at the top of the iPhone X display.
As a result, those coming from a legacy iPhone were supposed to hit both a muscle memory wall, and aspect ratio compatibility issues. Still, early iPhone X adopters - the handset has been around for less than two months - are quite happy with their iPhone X. Call it a $999 purchase justification, or just plain appreciation, but in an iPhone X owners survey by research firm Strategy analytics they rated it 4.6 out of 5.
The users cited three primary reasons for their approval - the coolness of Animoji, the hardware like the dual OIS camera, the excellent OLED display, plus the long battery life, and, last but not least, the familiar ecosystem that the iPhone X slots into. Such a high approval rating usually bodes well for future sales, but we'll have to wait and see the first quarterly results in which iPhone X shipments are reflected to gauge if the positive opinions have translated into cold hard cash.
