The iPhone X fails to impress me in many ways. Although it’s the most impressive device Apple has built, but it does have a number of flaws that are big enough to convince me to stay away from it and get a competing Android handset instead.
For the last 24 hours, plenty of publications have been talking about all the great features of Apple’s new flagship including its large bezel-less display, upgraded processor, and the addition of wireless charging. It’s extremely easy to get caught up in all the excitement, but if you take a step back and have an honest look at the new device, you’ll quickly realize that the iPhone X isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
It definitely has its faults, which we’ll take a closer look at in this post. Here are four reasons why I won’t buy the iPhone X.

1. It doesn’t have the X factor
The iPhone X is packed with the latest technology. It has a dual-camera setup on the back, a bezel-less display, a powerful chipset, and also supports wireless charging. The problem is that these things aren’t really new, as they are already present on a number of Android smartphones.
The truth is that the new iPhone lacks the X factor, which is at least one unique feature that would make it stand out from the crowd. Just look at the Android world: the Galaxy S8 has the curved display, the Note 8 comes equipped with the S Pen, Motorola’s high-end handsets have Moto Mods and the ShatterShield display, and the OnePlus 5 has Dash Charge. These features give the devices a competitive edge over their rivals and can really influence consumers’ purchasing decisions.
Apple’s top-tier smartphone lacks an X factor
This is something the iPhone X lacks, as there’s really not one feature that sets it apart from the rest. It kind of seems Apple has stopped innovating and just follows the trends that have already been established on the market. Sure, it can afford to do so thanks to its loyal fan base, but that won’t last forever. To maintain its market position, Apple will have to step up its game and start equipping its devices with something we haven’t seen before.
2. It’s way too expensive
Samsung took the wraps off the Galaxy Note 8 last month that shocked the public with its high price tag of $929. However, starting at $999, the new iPhone almost makes the Note 8 look like a bargain.
It’s the most expensive iPhone to date and based on what it brings to the table compared to the competition, it’s kind of hard — almost impossible — to justify its high price. To give you a better idea of just how expensive the iPhone X – Source
