Drawbacks Of the iPhone X That Will Make You Think Twice Before Buying iPhone X:

The iPhone X fails to impress in many ways. But it’s the most impressive device built by Apple, But it does have many drawbacks to make me think twice before buying it and get a competing Android device.

1.  The iPhone X has dual camera, best OLED display, a powerful chip and also support wireless charging. The problem with iPhone X is that these things aren’t really new, They are already presents on a number Android devices.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a curved display, So as in iPhone X But Advantage of Galaxy Note 8 over Apple iPhone X is it has a S pen Which make Samsung Note 8 more stylish and rich. Motorola’s high-end handsets have Moto Mods and the ShatterShield display, and the OnePlus 5 has Dash Charge.

The features with iPhone X packed is not new, so it seems Apple has stopped innovating and just follows the trends that have already in Android.

2. The major drawback of iPhone X is it is too much expensive. The price against the features that apple are offering is nothing special but if you are big fan of Apple than price is not a big issue. The best smartphone which is Samsung galaxy Note 8 is far more batter than Apple iPhone X.

3. Apple should’ve at least kept the Touch ID as an alternative to the new FaceID. Instead of adding features to its devices, The company is actually removing them. The iPhone X doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner. The problem here is that we have seen facial recognition on a few smartphone so far, and it hasn’t proven to be very safe.

Craig Federighi’s demo fail when he first attempted to unlock his iPhone at the event demo suggests otherwise.

4. The overall design of the device could be describe as bland, but it definitely doesn’t different from the crowd. The Samsung Note 8 and S8 design is far more batter than iPhone X. The Dual camera of iPhone X is not looking sexy, to be honest, a bit boring.

5. The iPhone X is certified with IP67 water resistance same as iPhone 7 which is not good compared to innovating something, besides Samsung S7, S8 and also Note 8 has IP68 water resistance which is batter than iPhone X.

All of the drawbacks make it difficult for me to go for iPhone X. If you are big fan of apple, iPhone X is the best device you can buy.
