Apple comes up with weird excuse for faulty iPhone X

In other words, if you are buying the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus or the iPhone X, also be willing to shell out an additional Rs 6,000 on a new charger and cable for it. It's also the only new iPhone with an HDR display with 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.

Apple certainly took its time with this one. Other than FaceID, the iPhone X touts its 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED Super Retina display.

"We do not gather customer data when you enroll in Face ID, it stays on your device, we do not send it to the cloud for training data", he said in the interview. Is it because Apple wants big profit margins? Nearly all other phones come bundled with a large charger that can supply enough power to enable fast-charging in the phone. Specifically, you need at least the $49 29W USB-C power adapter (or the USB-C power adapter that came with USB-C MacBook laptops), and a $25 USB-C-to-Lightning cable. The argument has some merit but it is worth noting that charging a phone of the most critical part of using the phone daily. That buys you an iPhone 8 (64GB) with monthly allowances of 4GB and unlimited texts and minutes.

Android smartphones have been designed with narrower borders and higher screen-to-body ratios than iPhones for a few years. Even the highly touted iPhone X was a rip off the Essential phone and way inferior to the Samsung S8 that was released earlier felt critics.

Moving forward to iPhone 8 Plus, the 64GB variant of the smartphone is priced $799. As a result, the iPhone X apparently boasts of 70% better performance than its predecessors.

iPhone X Price in India: iPhone's tenth anniversary marked the launch for 3 devices in which one is the new iPhone X. Apple is making the device available in 15 countries including India at the same time. What was significant about the launch of the latest iPhone was Apple dropping the traditional fingerprint sensor - Touch ID - in favor of a "new" facial recognition Face ID. I think just like with Touch ID, initially people thought, 'Apple's done something that's not going to work and I'm not a believer, and I'm not going to use the feature. The infamous Face ID fail by Craig Federighi during the keynote that has since been used repeatedly to "prove" how bad Face ID works may not even have been one in the first place.
