Apple iPhone X
The iPhone X is the most radical change to the iPhone formula ever, and despite some concerns, Apple has built a seriously impressive machine. We love its build quality and comfortable design, not to mention its expansive screen and great performance. The makeover here is drastic, though, and it'll take some time to really get used to Face ID and life without a home button. Stick with it and you'll find that the iPhone X is a surprisingly easy device to live with. Of course, since this is a first-gen device, it has its flaws. Not everyone will love the notch, the interface could use a little more polish, and a bigger battery would've been nice. Suffice to say, the iPhone definitely isn't right for everyone right now -- still, it provides a strong foundation for the iPhones of tomorrow to build on.

We highly recommend it. - EngadgetAaron90October 25, 2018Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Apple's new design is a hit. A fantastic camera, a beautiful screen, and one of the best designs in the market. Durability leaves a lot to be wanted for, especially when you consider cost to repair. The ecosystem and accessories are hit an miss - apple has one of the best eco systems - if you're apart of it. Welcome to the dongle life! The notch is a love/hate relationship.

It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well. - EngadgetEngadget Reader100November 30, 2017Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Best phone I've ever used. Great battery life, amazing camera, beautiful display, and extremely user-friendly. There is no issue about its lack of home button. It took me five minutes to get used to it. Be careful as screen scratches easily.
