Apple has just announced their premium flagship phone for this year, the iPhone X. While the specs and the design might be impressive, we are pretty sure most people won’t be happy with the price tag. Costing at around $1579 AUD for the 64GB version, we don’t feel like the price justifies the technology it comes bundled with, since most of the technology it showcased already exists on other phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus.
Of course, Apple’s latest iPhone X is straight forward competing with Samsung’s Galaxy S8, which both comes with edge to edge screen display, wireless charging and facial recognition. That being said, the S8 is about $A380 cheaper than the iPhone X and has nearly the exact same features.
Apple also announced the iPhone 8 and the 8 plus. They both have similar specs to the X except that they don’t come with the edge to edge display and the Face ID.
