In a somewhat dismal presentation where certain features of the iPhone X failed on camera, Apple finally revealed the much awaited iPhone X to the world on September 12. While the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were also launched on the same day, it would be cruel but safe to say that nobody really cares about them that much in light of the iPhone X. While the new poster boy for Apple is full of controversial and downright bizarre design choices, there is no doubt that when it comes to raw power, it's a beast and now we will take a look at the Geekbench scores revealed to us by ValueWalk to see just how powerful it really is in comparison to the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8.



As you can see from the screenshot above, the iPhone X absolutely mops the floor with the S8 and the Note 8 in both single core and multi-core performance. Granted that the real world difference in performance will hardly be noticeable by users, it doesn't take away from the fact that the A11 chip is way ahead of anything that Samsung, Qualcomm or any other Android chip manufacturer might have up their sleeves anytime soon!

Let's get one thing out of the way first, there's a lot to love about the iPhone X and this is not an article written to thrash it by any means. Nevertheless, it is a practical look at what can only be described as the "ears" of the iPhone X! Similar to the Essential Phone by Andy Ruben, but much wider, there's a significant gap at the top of the smartphone which Apple has utilized to incorporate the front camera and other sensors onto the front. As you can see from the image on top, this is quite a strange decision, given that it means this is not exactly a 5.8-inch display in effect.


Videos, games and other content will either be missing chunks from them or they will only utilize the rectangular section of the screen, making it much smaller than what you are paying for. Then there are other problems like you cannot see the scroll bar while scrolling a web page and white bars on the "notches" or "ears" in landscape mode. I am pretty confident that all this won't hurt sales though, since you know, it's Apple!

The iPhone X has finally been launched and although it was released alongside two other smartphones, no one really cares about them anymore unfortunately. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are definitely upgrades over the last gen iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but anyone who takes a look at the iPhone X will probably end up buying that instead, provided of course, you can afford to! Let's admit it, it does look great and although the design is nothing we haven't seen already from the likes of Xiaomi, Samsung and Andy Ruben's Essential Phone to name a few, it still is the most beautiful "iPhone" ever.


If you thought the iPhone X was going to be costly in the US at $999,, wait till you hear what it will cost to buy in India! It has been estimated that after taxes, this little beauty will set an Indian customer back by INR 102,000 or $1,565 (approximately)! That is however, for the model with 256GB in-built storage. If you would rather buy the one with just 64GB of internal storage, it will set you back by INR 89,000 or $1,387 (approximately). The bottom-line is, if you are reading this in the US, remember that people from countries with weaker economy have to spend a LOT more to get their hands on one of these!

If you have been following the latest buzz around the upcoming iPhones then you probably already know that they are coming out this Tuesday, which is September 12. As per reliable sources, Apple's brand new headquarter will be the venue of the unveiling for more than just two phones this year.


Apart from introducing the expected upgrades to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the world will witness Apple reveal a third phone as well. This will be the very first time that Apple is expected to release three iPhones at a single event and this third entrant will be called, "iPhone X." A new Apple Watch and may


The iPhone X will of course be the one with the borderless OLED display, if the leaks and rumors are to be believed of course. Although, at this point, it's only a matter of official confirmation because all but the actual handset has been revealed. The question is, will you be picking up an iPhone X for $1,000+ or will the iPhone 8 or iPhone Plus be enough for you?

It certainly looks that way because a very reputed source (The Wall Street Journal) has just revealed that Apple will be launching the bezel-less beauty on September 12, which is roughly two weeks from now. I called it a beauty but keep in mind that a lot of people disagree with the design choice. Nevertheless, that has not kept the upcoming smartphone from becoming the most anticipated handset of 2017.


Strangely enough, certain rumors are also predicting that Apple will also be launching the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus on the same date and if that turns out to be true, I must admit that it would be bizarre! Other expected products to be launched at the event include a brand new Apple Watch with LTE and a new Apple TV with support for 4K streaming.


It would be interesting to see how well people receive the iPhone 8 with its wireless charging capabilities, facial recognition technology and borderless design. A lot of talk has been going on around the probable price of the smartphone, which is expected to start at $1,000 and go up as high as $1,400 for the models with more storage. Of course, we all know that in reality, the steep price won't matter and people will probably buy even more of these phones this year because of the price itself. We can't help it; most human beings are vain creatures!
