The iPhone X is the pinnacle of Apple design. The entire phone is just a screen. Apple's Face ID promises to be a game changer. It's more secure and convenient than Touch ID. It uses a combination of infrared cameras, infrared lighting, and machine learning to deliver precise and accurate recognition each time. And as a plus, thanks to its machine learning capabilities, it'll learn your face as it changes over time.
This is the future of the smartphone and it's here now.
For the critics, it's as simple as the price. No one wants to pay $999 for a phone. It looks nice, but it's not really all that different from the iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 starts at $699. You could buy an Apple Watch with that difference in price.
