The infamous Face ID fail by Craig Federighi during the keynote that has since been used repeatedly to "prove" how bad Face ID works may not even have been one in the first place. The margin is so high, that you can even fund a trip to Japan for yourself and buy an iPhone X there.
If you are not really into big screens, the iPhone 7 with its 4.7-inch display is a pretty good option. The iPhone 8 starts at $688, the iPhone 8 Plus begins at $799 and the cheapest iPhone X will be $999. As a result, the iPhone X apparently boasts of 70% better performance than its predecessors. This means to buy an iPhone X before the Holidays will be a huge challenge. So Apple, there's some room for improvement here. While Apple has improved the 12mp cameras included in this device by arranging them vertically and including optical image stabilization in both lenses, it would've been much better if Apple would also have increased the megapixels. "In other words, Face ID worked as it was created to". It would not have been used as a replacement for Touch ID, since we also authenticate payments with these mechanisms.
Face ID is an excellent form of biometric authentication and works the same way as other biometric authentication such as TouchID or fingerprint sensor.
Finally, iPhone X costs a lot. Its 256GB variant will cost Rs1,02,900. The device, that was already called one of the most affordable smartphones, has now become the cheapest iPhone ever sold by Apple.
Apple's products are not cheap, but there are loyal fans, who can't imagine their lives without an iPhone. "We are a brand dedicated to empowering people through connectivity, and we are thrilled to be offering Apple's latest generation iPhone to our technology savvy customers", said Fahad Al Hassawi, Chief Commercial Officer, du. While Apple has always been known as a high-margin, premium product smartphone brand, there will certainly be some consumers who can not afford to plough money into the iPhone X. It's worth noting that it wasn't just average Joes who balked at the iPhone X's $1,000 price tag, either.
For the more nostalgic of us, the home button could be a deciding factor when choosing a new iPhone.
