    I thought it was intellectually dishonest for them to claim they have introduced cutting edge technology for the future and its innovative when everything has been introduced by Samsung for years now. They're just catching up.
    Same could be said for Samsung with them introducing Always On Display, Iris Scanner, Plus size model etc etc in recent years all which has been around on other phones for ages

    True, but I don't believe they ever said those are their innovative and revolutionary steps towards the future of smartphone....correct me if I am wrong.

    It's all in their presentation and marketing. It's at a level no other company can follow. Like with the iPhone X Tim announced it as if it's the first phone to tout all the features Android phones have had for years. It's almost as if Apple doesn't consider Android as a real competitor. This mindset works for Apple hence their new multibillion dollar campus and loads of cash in reserve.
    I was so confused...Maybe those who have only used Apple and don't follow any other tech are truly impressed. I was like, are those people paid to yell and clap on cue, cuz that's old! It was an ok show. I liked Samsung's more. I'm openly biased.

    I'm going to LOVE watching iPhone fans backtracking on the what they said about the glass backs on the Samsung flagships. That's going to take some skill.

    Although I still have several iPhones and some Apple watches, I see no reason to buy another new iPhone. I bought an S8+ back in June, my next phone will again be a Samsung when the time comes.

    I'm curious as to how notifications will work while using the phone. It's going to be odd with that notch up top

    Wheres the fingerprint scanner under the screen Apple fans gave been bragging about? They were laughing at Samsung for failing to implement it.

    I dislike the design. It just looks wrong with the top being cut off, and the side bezels seem rather thick in comparison to the Note 8. 4k@60 fps is very nice, but nothing that would make me skip the Note 8. I'll keep the S-Pen and the bigger screen any day.

    They introduced wireless charging. They are taking us to THE FUTURE. That is so innovative. The brains at Apple headquarters are working hard to deliver cutting edge technology. Who knew wireless charging will be a thing? Not me

    I just priced out a 256 gb Iphone X with AppleCare and it came out to just under $1450. That is way to high. You can get an S8 for around $600 now and a square trade warranty for another $100.

    Also, for all the hoopla, IOS is still the same static grid of icons that really hasn't changed in 10 years.

    It's ugly. That notch is awful. Also, it's $999 for a phone that does what a $600-700 phone does.

    Fanboys keep repeating, "but the Samsung version is $939." No, that's for the BIG phone. The smaller iPhone is $999. When (if) the iPhone X Plus (or whatever) is revealed it will be $1299.

    The cheapest current flagship from Samsung, the S8, has the same size screen as the iPhone X. It's functionally larger though since it doesn't have the horns at the top.

    You can either pay your rent or mortgage or buy this heavily overpriced phone. The $999 price tag is for Iphone X 64gb, so just imagine how much the Iphone X Plus 264gb will cost. That's ridiculous for what you're getting. Buy a Note 8 and call it a day. And I bet most fanboys will buy it mainly for the Animoji.

    Well, they actually did finally get some stuff that they lacked for years (waterproofing, OLED, wireless charging, edge screens, minimal bezels) but for me that just makes it on par with some Android phones. I thought the X looked great, though it's not for me.

    Other than the price, and no FPS, I can't see any reason to bash it. It seems like an awesome phone really.
    Even their waterproofing is only IP67. Not IP68 like Note 8.

    To be fair, 67 and 68 are basically the same thing; just a difference of up to .5 meter depth. And neither one is waterproof.

    Good to fact check this Apple Event. They straight up lied so many times (from claiming to change the way you look at television with a 4K streaming applebox to claiming their Iphone X is innovative and revolutionized the future of smartphone), it's not even funny.

    This is the thing I don't get about Apple. The tech has been out for years but it only becomes relevant when Apple does it. And Apple is hailed as being innovative. How are old features deemed innovative? What is creative and original about their "new" features? 🤔
    Steve, the man, would be turning in his grave. HE was the great innovator in Apple. Why do you think I finished with the iPhone 4? Why do you think the iPhone jail-break community was so big? There has been no wow factor for me since then. They just kept updating with features that jailbreakers were using for years. Now they follow. Nice screen! Wireless charge! Dual OIS.......now go back to the s6 edge, note 7, S8, note 8. Now THATS innovation. Just my opinion but I see no reason to go back. Others will. Good luck to 'em!

    To be fair, their wireless charging is said to charge 3 things at the same time. If I read the report correctly.

    If I am not mistaken the wireless pad is able to wireless charge at least two things. But not that's really innovative. You are just making a pad bigger. Then he made it sound like it is so innovative and the future....that has been out for a long time.

    Much of it is probably due to patents. Nobody wants to copy someone's patent.

    LOL. just kidding

    Edit: This of course is funny because of the litigation a few years ago but nobody probably remembers that now.
