Apple’s next generation of smartphone – the iPhone X – is here. But what’s new about it, and is it worth the £1000 pricetag? Here’s what users are saying about it.
- Curious about the new iPhone 9? Trusted Reviews have got the important info
1. Animojis are hilarious
Whoever thought of these guys is a genius. Your phone basically scans your face and turns it into an emoji animal. And with these animals, you can:
A. make them sing AC/DC’s ‘TNT’

B. create comedy sketches.

C. use them to parody political figures.
I tell you, this iPhone X animated emoji thing will be the new political cartooning. Here is Trump’s Pussy Grab tape – performed by a pig pic.twitter.com/II95JmOe0m

D. not understand them at all.
2. The cameras are really, really good. Maybe too good.
They show so much detail it’s almost like you’re seeing the world in better quality than you can with your actual eyes.

See, for example, how it captures the regal essence of this peacock.

And the front-facing ‘selfie’ camera is well HD.

Some, though, are saying it’s too high-quality, making selfies a traumatising experience:

I wouldn’t have much use for the iphone X. That camera is too good man all anyone would see is my dry ass skin and bags under my eyes in perfect HD quality.

3. You can trick the facial recognition software
As this experiment by Mashable proves, twins can trick the facial recognition software, meaning if you have an identical twin you can easily log into your sibling’s phone without a password.

4. They’re troublingly expensive
Like, if you drop one, you will never ever recover.
Some guy in Bp this morning dropped his IPhone X and I’ve never seen a man cry harder in my life

I JUST CRACKED MY IPHONE X???

If your iPhone X broke, is it an iPhone ex ?

Like, look at the airplane mode animations:
