The basics:

  • All-glass design and 5.8” OLED Super Retina Display (no more Home button!)
  • Face ID unlocking technology
  • Water and dust resistant
  • A11 chip (6-core CPU) is energy efficient and the extra power gives you access to new machine learning, AR apps and immersive 3D games.
  • Battery Life (Talk-time) Up to 21 hours (wireless)
  • Camera (rear-facing): 12 megapixel wide-angle and telephoto cameras, Wide-angle: ƒ/1.8 aperture, Telephoto: ƒ/2.4 aperture, Digital zoom up to 10x, Dual optical image stabilisation, Six-element lens, Quad-LED True Tone flash with slow sync, Panorama (up to 63MP)

  • 25% louder stereo speakers than previous iPhone models
  • Lightening adapter at bottom of the phone only (compatible with Lightning connector headphones, other headphones in addition to included 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, and wireless headphones)
  • Also, thanks to iOS 11 and iCloud, you can connect your Apple products automatically and make your everyday tasks easier. For example, stream videos from your iPhone X to your television via your Apple TV 4K; everything’s synced, so all your devices have the latest information.

Most tech lovers would agree that Samsung’s hardware has been outpacing Apple’s for a few years now at least (politely ignoring the exploding Galaxy Note 7 snafu), but what they are lacking is the cult following of the whole package–aesthetics, design, software, AND hardware.
