I used the iPhone X for 2 weeks. I don’t think you should buy the iPhone X.

The iPhone X is the latest Apple flagship smartphone. With the iPhone X Apple has entered the realm of near bezel-less smartphones. The screen-to-body ratio on the iPhone X is one of the most impressive on the market. The camera on the iPhone X is also market leading and competitive with the Google Pixel 2 XL. Many users will be happy living with the iPhone X but I think the purchase is tough to justify. Given the emergence of truly high quality smartphone options retailing for half the price. Devices like the OnePlus 5T, Essential Phone, Razer Phone and even the heavily discounted Samsung Galaxy S8 offer better value for money. The iPhone X is not twice as good as any of those devices. Of course, this is my opinion… There is no perfect smartphone, just the best smartphone for you. The iPhone X will be great for some but I think most would be better served pocketing the extra $500 and grabbing something like the OnePlus 5T.

I’ve been watching some of your videos whenever you put a new one or some of the ones you have now and to be quite frankly with you this one by far is the most helpful one for me I have an iPhone 8+ and I was thinking about getting the X but I’ve been hearing and seeing a lot of negative reviews on it I’m not saying yours are fully negative but they help a lot thank you for that and keep putting up these very helpful videos thank you I hope you get a chance to message me back if not it’s OK and again thank you for the videos
i just bought an iphone x today. i don't use the face recognition function or the passcode. i just touch the screen (or you can have the raise to wake function turned on) and then swipe. simple and easy. the camera hump isn't an issue if you have a case on the phone which is a must for a $1000 phone. lol
I normally don’t follow much but u r an exception;)....
I am iOS user since 2005 n was thinking to get iPhone X, not sure why I waited so long after it’s launch....after watching your video, I am seriously considering other phones now...👍👍👍👍
I'm a hardcore android fan, and I just switched to the X because I was able to get it for just under $500. I must say im very impressed and I love it, and I still have my Mate 10 Pro on the side. At $1000? Of course I woudn't be as impressed. But, don't forget Lou, this is APPLE we are talking about. People are paying for the brand. If apple made the one plus 5, same internals and externals, just a complete replica inside out, and slapped an apple logo on it, they can easily charge 800 for it and people would happily buy it. Dont forget about brand, that's a huge factor as well.
Increase up technology for iPhone like camera cyber shot mode in portrait
IPhone is absolutely good better n nice but it’s slow in develop in series till IPhone X according to Samsung it’s occurring problem in some models but s8 was fabulous set
I have owned 2 iPhones and 6 Samsung galaxy phones and hands down Samsung way better Apple is overpriced overrated junk ppl buy them just to say I have the newest iPhone such is stupid a investment in a 1,000 dollar device can be better invested elsewhere
Witch is better the S9 or the iPhone X cuz even though I can't afford one of the two I still what to know cox I'm and actually an android user but because of my iPhone 4s plus,yes it's and older model I'm starting to like it
I subscribed to your channel but i DONT have Twitter. I DONT have the internet. Safari is restricted in every way but i have the YouTube app on my iPad. What can I do? Do you have to follow your Twitter account?
The only problem when you start talking about pricing is the fact that in America most people don't buy phones outright. Most people are financing them. So when you really think about it, $1,000 is a lot of money but when it's spaced out over 24 months it's only a couple of dollars less than a phone that's $500. I do agree that the iPhone X really isn't the best bang for your buck. But brand loyalty and blah blah blah. Your get the picture.
The biggest argument i hear from iphone users is that the iphones are more "user friendly". So they rather pay the extra money than have to deal with "bothersome androids". Most people that i know who are iphone users also are not tech savy they just want something they can just pick up and go even though they can do that with androids. Other than the Specs and "User Friendly" argument they rather pay extra for the included apps like imessage because of the emojis or how "simple" it is.
I've used android phones for my whole lifr and what I hate about Android phones is that it starts getting fucked after half a year and after 1½ to 2 years you have to buy a new phone 3 years ago I bought an IPhone 6s (waaaay more expensive) but it still works without (almost) any problems that it starts lagging and the battery is bad because my android phone (that I had) could only last for 40 minutes after 1½ year when I'm just watching YouTube and if I play games my phone can't even reach 20 minutes i had that with multiple other android phones that i can only use it for 2 hours a day and when it was new i could use it for 8 hours +! So the IPhone X is definitely not worth it a $1000 but some IPhones are expensive I know but those phones can last for soooooo long
Hell yeah... I am a big fan of iOS though, but i also love Android. And yes i love the look of iPhone X. But the price doesn't make any sense to me. Yes I'm not that rich or can make a thousand USD easily. But if i do have like 5 thousand USD that fall from the sky right in front of me... I'm 100% still not gonna buy it. Instead, buy a great phone with a reasonable price and I'll use the rest of the money to start my own business to make more money even though I'm crazy over the iPhone X.
Ok, it's just me so it's not gonna effect apple at all. But you guys should do that too and maybe in the future they can also sell a phone with with reasonable price too. Yes the iOS great, but iPhone X should less than 900 USD
Don't buy any new iPhone in general because losing your ability to listen to your music while charging is bullshit (you have to spend more money to get a adapter just to use your headphones) this is why I use Android "hey iPhone users no one can send me one line of text and crash my phone and I actually have a headphone jack so what do you have on me oh and don't say camera because mine has proven to be better also my phone is the perfect size for me (smallest or biggest isn't always better) my prosseser is better as well and not to mention it was only $150 or so compared to your $1000 phones"
I have only ever used the iPhone, currently using the 7 Plus, moving to the X soon and frankly it's down to a personal choice, I've never used Android because I feel there's so many features that you wouldn't use, I was tempted by the newest Samsung Note but for me the iPhone is simple, I'm sure any avid Android user will say that Android is simple but again, it's down to personal preference. The problem with Android user's is that they're live vegans, they have to shove it down your throat that "Android is better" well clearly an Android user hasn't heard of another person's opinion or preference.
Hahahahhahah.... You seems kind of pissed off ! This is the first time i have ever watched your negative review about any flagship, which was pretty awesome. Now i can use this as a reference to nail down iphone users :D
I’ve been an iPhone person for the longest time, but I’ve always hated Apple products. They’re expensive, hard to replace and have so many unnecessary changes made to them whenever a new generation of their product comes out. The iPhone was always known as a user friendly phone that was simple at it’s core, but still maintained a polished and comfortable feel for anybody who didn’t want something as advanced as Galaxy or Droid. At this point, the “innovations” are starting to feel like impractical changes that are convoluting the phone. Doing things like removing a home button or auxiliary port for no apparent reason are horrible for the phone and continue to alienate people that don’t want to spend upwards of a thousand dollars for something that will be obsolete in the next six months, alongside the annoyance of constantly needing to buy things like new chargers or headphones that are actually compatible with the phone. There’s also the massive deterrent of Apple having a proven history of sabotaging older phones by releasing iOS updates that start to kill the phone’s performance, or the extremely unpopular change of refusing to allow downgrades for people that are not satisfied with the state of their phone. This also crippled the ability to jail beak their phones, which was the only reason I ever liked iPhones. A jail broken iPhone doesn’t have the problems of dealing with Apples extremely strict and closed source security measures that only limit the phone and keep it on lockdown for anybody who spent money on it. Jail breaking allowed people to keep the comfortable and simple interface of an iPhone, without having to deal with Apples frustrating methods of making sure your phone won’t last by constantly making new generations and going as far as intentionally ruining the performance of their older phones.
Simply put, they’re greedy. These aren’t changes that people have been begging for, they’re excuses for people to spend more money. These changes are horrible and the popularity of their phones are suffering as a result. I would never spend a thousand dollars on a phone that’s going to drastically change it’s interface and leave me bewildered because of how much time I put into getting comfortable with the last phone. I’m never buying another Apple product until they straighten out the unnecessary changes they’re making to them.
I have an iPhone 8. Used to be a Samsung galaxy owner years ago. Switched to iphone 6s, then 7 and now 8. It's reliable, looks and feels good, and like he says it "gets the job done." The biggest reason I'm sticking with iphone is iMessage. It's just the best text interface there is. Until that happens with Android, I'm sticking with Apple for now.
