iPhone X: All the new features

You've probably read that a million time today, but the iPhone X is easily Apple's most advanced iPhone yet. With a treasure trove of features that are totally new for the iPhone lineup, it fairly deserves the crown.

So, with so much talk about new features and exciting novelties on deck, one could easily get lost in all the improvements that Tim Cook, Craig Federighi, and Phillip Schiller demonstrated on stage.

Let us walk you around by highlighting all the important new features that you should care about, in 15 slides or less. Here goes:

I'm not impress, u saw how he started sweating the face Id didn't work. The face Id and it was slower than Samsung iris scanner. Why everyone nitpicking Samung if it faster than the fps? 2. IPhone doesn't even have a fps so why everyone complaining about it placement, better to have a fps in that location vs none 3. Fast charging, oled with her is what samsung had for a while iPhone users sworn they didn't care about too. Now it is awesome even tho it's a samsung panel which they hate samsung. 4.it has wireless charging that not fast nothing revolutionary here.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus do have fingerprint sensors. No one has to get the iPhone X.

But you get all of that plus the gorgeous bezeless display with Samsung phones.

None of what they call "Features" are really "features" Super Retina...unless you have super vision, you won't notice it No home "button"...other manufacturers ditched that long ago, not "new" The "build"...every smartphone is a rectangular slab of metal, plastic and glass. Face ID...can't wait for that to be SLOW, and HACKED Animogi...LMAO Camera...meet the NEW boss, same as the OLD boss Portrait mode...YEAH!!! more selfies!!! LOL A11 chipset....WOW! BENCHMARK dreamers!!! Nothing like having a 700HP engine, and you are stuck going 30mph Battery Life...LOL, battery savers make it seem like you get longer battery life. Good luck with the OLED sucking it up Wireless Charging...nothing like being LATE to the party, and, NOT even having YOUR OWN CHARGER stand ready. So, to sum it up, the "iconic" new iphone, is nothing more than last years model, with racing stripes, and a HIGHER price.

It's just... amazing. That display... hope the color shifts aren't as pronounced as on the Apple watch. But where is the iPhone 9 ? Wanted to buy that one.

The amount of trolls and haters in this site is abysmal. I'm far from being an Apple fan but truth be told the new iPhone looks awesome. I agree the iPhone 8 is a rehashed iPhone 6 with a glass back but the iPhone X got a completely fresh new design, superb camera, and a powerful SoC that trounces every Android phone in the next 3 years. Yeah some of the announced features are late to the party (fast charging - wireless charging) but it's new for the long time Apple fans and it will be appreciated. This will be a contender for best phone in 2017. Let's wait for the reviews and see.

This article is a blowjob to Apple. I felt sick reading it. You should be ashamed being so biased towards Apple.

You know this whole site is funded by Samsung including the people posting. Samsung was caught and fined in court for hiring reviewers and people to write fake reviews and comments on phone websites and forums. That's why you get all these haters that bash on anything non Samsung.

It's easy to fool the face recognition in Iraq because all people there look the same.

Unfortunately all the features in this phone are available in Mid range Android phone, plus what is missing are SD card slot and dual sim feature.

Hey guys, please tell me, how are you unlocking your phone in these conditions: 1) With hat and glasses 2) In the car while driving 3) In a meeting room and wants to check only couple of things without everyone noticing that you are watching your phone. Also, I hope the front infrared sensor will not work as a flashlight in the night in order to see your face. I guess it is going to work very poorly in the night or in disco, bar where there are a lot of other lights. Hopefully, under 5% battery it will not say that this function is disabled to conserve more battery power :)) Fail ID
