Mockery Attack! Huawei Takes a Bite at Apple iPhone X

Mockery Attack! Huawei Takes a Bite at Apple iPhone X

Iris scanning, for instance, commonly uses near-infrared illumination, which the iPhone X has (such a feature is already included in the aforementioned Samsung handset). The devices feature a new 12MP camera sensor that is expected produce less noise.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus closely mimic the design of the previous generation iPhone 7, with Apple introducing a new back glass design, with a polished aluminium band and new silver, space gray, and a "beautiful new gold finish". When asked by host Robin Roberts if the price of the iPhone X was too high for most people, Cook responded by saying, "Well, it's a value price actually for the technology that you're getting".

Rather than wiping out fingerprint sensors, though, the inclusion of facial recognition on the iPhone may lead to future phones with a greater breadth of biometric sensors.

At the end of the day, if the iPhone X is overpriced, it will be reflected in underwhelming sales. Further, it's not as if the iPhone X is the only smartphone Apple is selling this year.

CNET senior photographer James Martin took 2,000 shots with the iPhone 8-Plus camera over three days, and came away impressed with their texture detail, saturation and noise levels, as well as (thanks to its HDR abilities) the details it delivered for highlights and shadows.




This is another area where there's a big difference between the phones, as while they both have 12MP cameras, the iPhone X has two, while the iPhone 8 has just one. Oh, and it also offers optical image stabilization for photos and videos. Once you place your face in the phone, it's in the phone.

We don't yet know the size of the battery in the iPhone X, but we do know that the iPhone 8 has a 1821mAh one and the iPhone X's will likely be a lot larger to power its larger screen. She considers the iPhone 8 a solid choice for those upgrading from a much older device, such as the iPhone 6s. Both iPhone 8 models will support the open wireless standard, Qi, allowing users to buy third-party accessories to charge their device.

Both the iPhone X and iPhone 8 are available in 64GB and 256GB sizes and both have the same selection of connectivity options, including Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC (though only for Apple Pay).

The iPhone X will become available on November 3, with pre-orders commencing on October 27. If you want something compact or can't justify spending a grand on the phone then the iPhone 8 should make a fine choice, but for a taste of the future the iPhone X is the only option.
