iPhone X takes us to the next level of smartphone, while Eric is stuck in the android trap!
The iPhone X has drawn more excitement than every other new phone released this year! It's a stunning example of what Apple technology can produce both hardware and software. As other reviews such as The Wall Street Journals review proclaims, its the "Best smartphone that has ever been made". But I only hear subtle compliments from this review and loads of insults.
I am a professional photographer and Eric pointed out some of how terrific the camera of the Apple iPhone X is! But in nearly "every" catagory there was mocking and complaints with few compliments for a job well done.
The iPhone X is the fastest, best looking, best built smartphone ever created and I heard none of that here. The final scores were damn good but ran in confli... (continues)
So you want the IPhone X to be more along the lines of Android? Then review an Android phone. I can buy a Samsung phone for $950.00, but $1000.00? That’s way too much. Seriously? Complaints over a $50.00 difference?
Let’s look at it this way. Android phones (many models available) very nice phones. But the same OS is used on different manufacturers devices. iOS is on Apple, period. That lends itself to better hardware to software interplay. Perfect? No. Nor are the competitors. But I find it tiring when slamming a platform is considered a review. For example, “The Notch”. Who cares? It’s not really that huge an issue, functionally does nothing to the iPhone, and (for me), it gives me an idea where the speaker and front camera are.
I read and hear a lot of commentary about, "The Notch" on the new iPhone X and both sides have their opinions if they like it or not.
The main reason Apple made that notch is for branding identity. It makes a statement even from across the room. There's no mistaking if somebody is using Apple's latest flagship phone in a sea of phones because that notch is unmistakable. Simple as that.
It's a rather brilliant bit of marketing and I expect many copy cats from the competition next year (save for Essential of course).
Nah. This is PhoneScoop not The Verge. PS has always been fair and honest which is why to this day it's one of the few sites I frequent and trust for their reviews. If you want iSheep, try The Verge and MKBHD.
