The Good The iPhone X delivers a great blend of handheld comfort and a big, gorgeous 5.8-inch OLED screen. The rear-facing telephoto camera outshoots the iPhone 8 Plus in low light, and the front-facing camera snaps impressive portrait mode selfies. Face ID generally works fine.

The Bad The iPhone X is nearly certain to be replaced by a newer, better model in less than 3 months, but remains hella expensive in the meantime. The all-glass body means a case and an insurance plan are musts. Shorter battery life than iPhone 8 Plus.

The Bottom Line iPhone X remains a winning evolution of the iPhone, but at this point, you’re better off waiting for what Apple has on deck in September.

The iPhone X was unveiled in September 2017 and released on November 3. And since then, it’s remained at the top of the smartphone hill. The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and the Huawei P20 Pro made some interesting advancements in photography, but nothing else has come close to matching the iPhone X‘s revolutionary Face ID unlocking system. Instead, an increasingly large number of Android phones have taken to straight-up copying the iPhone X’s distinctive notch — the thing that was arguably its most controversial and divisive design decision.

So while the iPhone X remains an excellent, industry-leading smartphone, it’s probably not one you should run out and buy. That’s because its successor — or, possibly, a trio of successors — is expected to arrive in September. The 2018 version of iPhone X will certainly be better and faster, and it may be released alongside larger and more affordable X-style iPhones, too. And they’ll all be running iOS 12 as well
