BEST PHONE YET

Ok. This phone is amazing. The design is beautiful. The wrap-around display feels like something from future.The iPhone X has a 5.8-inch AMOLED panel, a first for any iPhone. AMOLED panels are known for their power efficiency and for offering deeper blacks, making them the choice of ‘purists’ who demand the ultimate viewing experience. Unlike Samsung, Apple has tuned its AMOLED displays to offer a fairly natural colour tone. Just like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X display supports Apple’s TrueTone technology, and it can even show HDR content from the likes of Netflix and Apple’s own portfolio of iTunes movies. Overall, the iPhone X display is great, and is arguably the best I’ve ever come across on a smartphone.
The absence of the Home button and all-glass front and back mean that other than the camera bump at the back, both sides of the iPhone X feel pretty similar in hand. As a result, on more than one occasion I found myself holding my unit upside down or staring at its back upon taking it out of my pockets, or picking it up from a desk in the dark. However, if you end up using your iPhone X with a case - as you probably should - this may not be a real problem for you.
Like most phones, the area near the top of the iPhone X is reserved for an array of sensors and while the most expensive iPhone till date has its fair share of sensors - more on them in a bit - it is Apple’s decision to wrap the display around this array of sensors that gives the iPhone X its...

It's growing on me...

I must admit, I had reservations about this one, but it is starting to grow on me.
It has so many things to love. A great screen, even if a little crippled by that notch. (Hopefully it an be reduced as tech improves.)
Great sound from the stereo speaker.
Camera produces AMAZING pictures.

one too expensive average
Kibzara has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
price does not justify this phone at all. first of all, for this price, i expect some useful stuff out of the box, like fast charging adapter, better headphones and all good things some flagship Androids get. second, that notch is a pain to look at. third, design of a phone is somehow boring and allready seen. fourth, no home button makes an iPhone an Android ripoff, but in a bad way, with very confusing gestures.

The best iPhone I’ve ever had.
MsSn33zy has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
This phone is pretty good. I just wish the price wasn’t so high. The only things that I wish were better was the battery life, the annoying camera bump and that they still haven’t integrated USB type C to charge. Because they have it in the new iPads, Apple Watch and MacBooks. So why not in the iPhone? I’m not bothered by the notch or no headphone jack or the gestures since there is no home button. I’ve learned it after just 15 seconds with the phone. All in all it’s a pretty good phone.

i will say i was jumping back and forth between all sorts of different phones until i finally decided to go with the iPhone X. i recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice phone who will last them for a long time while staying with the new trends of phones.

Overrated absolute garbage. I own one and use it all the time and I greatly miss my android and Google. Never thought I'd be saying that. The iPhone X is pure trash. The Maps app is a joke compared to Google maps. There are so many bugs throughout ALL the apps. And swift key is severely mentally challenged on iPhone. Overall it's a POS and the most regrettable purchase OF MY LIFE

Best phone available on the market. I love it.
And the Face ID instead of Touch ID feels more premium.
Battery seems to be really good, but it makes the phone a little heavy (174g) and sometimes it can be a bit annoying when you hold it in your hand for some time.

Lackluster All Around
soccersprt2486 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I was really excited to get this phone on pre-order until I actually received. After a few weeks with it I decided to return it. The "full" screen is obviously not full screen and that notch at the top will drive you nuts. Face ID doesn't work quickly and about 80% of the time you'll end up typing in your passcode anyways.
When making calls I was told that it was extremely difficult to hear me and like I was underwater. You have to hold the phone right in front of your mouth for people to be able to hear you. If you hold the phone 1-2+ inches away it will be extremely difficult for others to hear you.
I was moving from my iPhone 6s and really miss having a headphone jack. It's the times when you get to the gym or are at work and want to listen something and don't have the stupid dongle or crappy Apple supplied headphones.
On top of the design flaws of this phone it was also really glitchy. My apps opened a lot slower than they did on my 6s. I wasn't able to make calls one day until I restarted the phone. Sometimes the flashlight wouldn't work at all, no matter how many times you tapped it.
The one pro that I will mention was the battery life, which was the main reason for my switch from my old 6s. The battery lasted all day while using multiple apps.
When I paid the $1,200 for the phone I was a little weary because that's a lot for a phone, but I was fine with it. A phone is an investment in your everyday life. But when I received this $1,200 purchase I expected to be amazed...

The best phone yet
ilaic2004 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I fricking love this phone... The build quality, the camera, that ui and ohoooooooooooo dat display... Cant reeally say alot... For me, that is the best phone yet. The battery life is great, 8 hours of display and the display... Apple was real when they said this is the only display that is good enough for the iPhone X... The camera... A DSLR in your pocket. The UI is amazing! So fluid and feels like im flying... I love how apple made a phone with SS and glass... It feels like a solid piece and the build quality is awsome... LOVE IT
