Critics Reviews (Around the Web)

Overall, using the iPhone X well takes some time. It’s a big change from a physical home button to a completely swipe-based interface. But it's fast, fluid and a lot of fun once you get used to it. Read full review →

If you can afford it, there is no reason not to have a 256GB iPhone X. If money is an object, you should consider a 256GB iPhone 8 Plus instead of a 64GB iPhone X. Storage matters. Read full review →

iPhone X is an overdue and winning evolution of the iPhone, but you'll need to leave your comfort zone to make a jump into the face-recognizing future. Read full review →

The iPhone X is for early adopters, people who want a glimpse into Apple's unfinished future, and who are willing to take on a few bumps in the road (such as poorly designed third-party apps, for a while) to get there. Yes, it's the best iPhone, hands down. It's the future of iPhones. Read full review →

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. Read full review →

The iPhone X is clearly the best iPhone ever made. It's thin, it’s powerful, it has ambitious ideas about what cameras on phones can be used for, and it pushes the design language of phones into a strange new place. Works in progress can still be great Read full review →

Apple has got things almost entirely right with the iPhone X, taking all it’s learned from its past handsets and fusing them together to make a device that’s like nothing else the brand has ever produced. Read full review →

If you're an Apple fan, this is the phone to buy. We can't peel our eyes away from the gorgeous OLED screen, and using gestures to move around iOS is pure bliss. Read full review →

The iPhone X is the most impressive smartphone ever made. It's worth the $999 -- but that doesn't mean you should buy it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the iPhone X, but iPhone 8 is just as fast while being simpler and more familiar to use. Read full review →

The Apple iPhone X is everything an Apple iPhone should be: Gorgeously designed, innovative, risky, inviting and effective in dozens of myriad tasks. It's a "look at me" device that, by shedding one of its most iconic features, fades even more effectively into the background when you use it. Read full review →
