Apple iPhone vs Samsung Galaxy models: Specs, prices, and features compared

Apple iPhone vs Samsung Galaxy models: Specs, prices, and features compared”

Users just look at the handset to unlock the iPhone X. Apple said the phone will recognise users' faces even in the dark, or changes in their hairstyles and facial hair.

The delay in shipping of the iPhone X could hurt Apple's seasonally-strong fiscal first quarter as orders get pushed to the following quarter.

Apple is touting the iPhone X as nothing short of "the future".

OLED display and 3-D camera are the two distinctive new features of the iPhone X and all related parts are made by Samsung Display and LG Innotek.

The more affordable iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, with starting prices of $699 and $799, respectively, did not produce hoots and hollers from the typically boisterous Apple crowd here.

It was on January 9, 2007, that Steve Jobs, the late CEO and Cook's immediate predecessor, introduced iPhone as "a revolutionary product".

The iPhone X sports front and back glass panels, and it has "surgical-grade" stainless steel around the frame.

And many Canadians seem disappointed by the new iPhone's high-end price.

Many users took to posting images of girls with and without makeup to show that the phone might find it hard to recognize them and hence unlock their phones.

At the Apple inaugural launch at the company's new Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, California yesterday, executive Phil Schiller addressed these concerns and explained that lining someone else's face in a front-facing camera isn't as easy as it sounds.

There is no Home button with the iPhone X, as users will simply access their Home screen by swiping up from the bottom.

Both iPhone 8 versions will allow wireless charging, a feature already offered in many Android phones, including Samsung models.

The two firms increased investments, including new production facilities, since a year ago in preparation for iPhone orders.

As a side note, if you want a more affordable iPhone that can run music making apps, you might like to consider the iPhone 6s, which now starts at £449/$449 for the 32GB model.

Belkin maintains full functionality of iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X while charging, including the ability to receive calls. The phone ships on November 3.

Some took to posting images of Hollywood movie stars and how their characters in some movies would definitely not approve of the new iPhone X feature.

While Apple has resolutely refused to reveal sales figures for its smartwatch, Tim Cook said during today's keynote that Apple Watch sales have grown 50 per cent, year on year.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus mostly follow the predecessor iPhone 7's design pattern but have gone through significant internal specs upgrades.
