Immediately after the release of the jubilee apple product, a wave of controversy swept around the discussion of the pros and cons of the iPhone X. The negative reviews were not long in coming. It is worth paying attention to the defining points that are important for an objective assessment of a new generation gadget. The most common inconveniences reported by users:
- Brittle glass.
'This is already my second ten. The first device dropped, slipped out of my hands and fell face-down on the ground with stones. Was in the original leather case and with a protective glass. The impact hit the corner of the glass above the charging connector. The protective glass did not save, it also broke. Maybe that's the only thing that happens to me, I don't know, a matter of chance.

“Unfortunately, there is such a sad experience: a huge, impressive crack on the rear window of my iPhone, a clear proof of the fragility of the case. Replacing the rear glass cover flew into a tidy sum of money for me, and I never had time to enjoy the new product to its fullest! It's scary to even imagine what number would be in the check if the damage would have overtaken the front panel of the smartphone. '
- Control that causes inconvenience when using the gadget.
'With the removal of the Home button, some manipulation has become insanely awkward! Face ID is annoying. He doesn't want to recognize my face at all, even in a dim light, let alone complete darkness. But even if the scanner works, you still need to remove it with your finger. The constant spontaneous screenshots are also annoying. Pressing randomly on 2 buttons on different sides of the phone when you hold it in your hand is easier than light! Desktop customization has also become awkward. Previously, it was worth pressing the Home key – the changes were recorded. Now we have to look for some picture “done”, lost somewhere in the upper right appendix '.
'Now, to close the application, you first need to pull your finger upward, then press it into the display with a small pad, and then poke it hard into the picture so that a circle with a minus appears. And only after that you need to click on the minus, and the application will shut down. Catastrophe'.
- Hangs while performing some operations.
“It glitches during an incoming call: the screen is locked and freezes for 10 seconds. But Apple is already fighting this problem, I hope they will soon fix it.”
'Less than a week later, my new kid iPhone X got stuck on an incoming call. Moreover, it hung “tightly” – neither a reboot, nor a flashing, nor a rollback to the factory settings, did not lead to anything (((Yes, what is it, the technical service has been testing it for more than a week. I will wait. Maybe I just had no luck, although at first The iPhone was very happy. '
- Inadequate price for the offered product.
'Not worth the money it claims, considering the features offered for the money. I bought a 64 GB version in winter for about 80 thousand rubles. She definitely does not deserve her money. But if we judge only about what materials it is made of and how these materials look and feel pleasant to the touch, then I think someone might find such a price acceptable. '
'The price tag is 100% overpriced, it is not worth it, 30-40 thousand maximum, in our time the brand should no longer matter. The Chinese produce products of much better quality and more interesting, so there is no point in paying twice for the apple logo alone. '
- Malfunctioning at low temperatures.
“The phone is afraid of frost more than any of its brethren .. I once walked at -24 a week after the purchase and at some point tried to turn on the flashlight. Oops, it won't turn on! After that, I was very scared, I thought, what if it does not turn on, because it was initially faulty. But as soon as the device was a little warm, the flashlight turned on without any problems. Later I found out that I am not the only one with this problem. '
“The most lethal flaw that came to light this winter – the screen does not work in the cold! It really does not work, I thought it was because of the protective glass – I peeled it off, but the situation has not changed. When you take the smart out of a warm pocket and your hand out of the glove, everything works. However, after 15-20 seconds, when the phone cools down, the screen sensitivity drops rapidly and you have to press it several times. Saves the situation if you breathe on the screen. '
- Face ID does not always work.
'In a horizontal position, you have to contrive to make Face work (after all, the face is in an upright position). A striking example of this is when a smartphone is placed in a bracket on the car dashboard and you need to start the navigator. The problem is solved either by slightly turning the ten, or (as I did) by changing the password from 6-digit to 4-digit '.
'Face ID takes a long time to work out. At first he didn't recognize me at night. But then, apparently, the software was corrected and the problem disappeared by itself. '
'Face id was initially very bad at recognizing faces. After a series of firmware updates, it got better, but still I'm tired of looking at him like a monkey and constantly entering a password. '
“For me, Face ID is too slow. After unlocking, you also have to swipe away from the screen. What for? If there was a version of just such a phone, but only with the traditional Touch ID, I would choose it without hesitation. '
- Photo and video filming.
'There are no problems during the day, all shots are beautiful, but as soon as you need to take a photo in low light, you are faced with a sharp drop in detail, poor white balance and lack of exposure. As the owner of Huawei p20 Pro I will say that the 'Ten' is not even close in terms of the quality of photos and videos in poor lighting. '
“The camera was disappointing. Everything, except people, turns out great. In low light, you can sometimes get a photo frame with a huge amount of noise on the skin and too dark shadows. This is not to mention the fact that there is no photo processing during shooting, which has been on Android for ages. Conclusion – if you are used to going on trips and filming everything on your phone, then this device will not work. '
'Annoyed by a darkened exposure. Yes, of course, for further image processing – there is a storehouse of unnecessary tools. But just to take a picture, as on the first iPhone or old Sonya, and immediately get bright and juicy shots that are ready for publication – this is not about the “Top Ten”. Without forcing the exposure and highlighting the shadows is now impossible. '
- A bulging rear camera that's even bigger thanks to the dual lens.
“Because the rear camera is sticking out, the phone constantly bangs with the back cover when it's on the table, which is very infuriating.”
'Bulging camera! Apple, what are you !? This is awful! What is the frame around the camera with sharp edges? The microphone hole and flash position are all ugly! Looks like cheap Chinese samizdat. '
- A monobrow that covers part of the screen and creates discomfort when watching video content.
'The notch at the top of the screen is terribly annoying, OLED – the panel is not much better than the LCD compared to my iPhone 6s. I do not like the lack of display of the battery charge on the display due to insufficient space … '.
'Many third-party software products are poorly adapted to this shape of the screen: the buttons fall under the' eyebrow 'or at the rounded corners of the screen. As if this is a Chinese Android and not a flagship smartphone for a bucks piece. The most unpleasant surprise was that not even all the pre-installed programs, such as iMovie, GarageBand, are adapted to the new screen. '
- Poor equipment and high price of accessories.
'This is certainly a trifle that does not affect the functionality of the phone, but the package bundle is frankly redneck! I have a “marching” unbreakable Chinese phone for $ 200, so even there is a quick charge in the kit. '
'The bundle lacks fast charging, which is strange for a device of this class. And in general, everything to a minimum. The rest, including the branded cover – please, for the money, and a lot. '
On the downside, many users consider the absence of a 2nd SIM card, the lack of displaying the battery charge on the screen.
After reading negative reviews, you should not try to get rid of your gadget as soon as possible. Every smartphone has pros and cons. In addition, Apple listens to the opinions of its fans and strives to fix build bugs and bugs. In addition, some of the drawbacks in real use do not interfere with the smooth operation of the iPhone X.
