iPhone X review: For RM5K+ you’d expect nothing less than perfection

Posted:  November 22, 2017   By:    4 comments   

The iPhone X is Apple’s latest and greatest device which also marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. With an asking price of more than RM5,000, it is also the most expensive iPhone yet.

Is it worth the RM1,000 premium over the iPhone 8 Plus? Find out what we think in our video review.

Compared to the iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X gets a 5.8” Super Retina HD display (2436×1125) that stretches edge to edge with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. As a comparison, Samsung’s Infinity display (S8/Note8) has an aspect ratio 18.5:9 while the Huawei Mate 10 Pro’s screen is doing 18:9. Since the iPhone X uses an AMOLED panel, the screen is brighter and has better contrast compared to the IPS panel on standard iPhone.

Replacing TouchID is its new FaceID module which brings a new form of facial unlock as well as depth of field effects for the front camera. While the cameras are identical to the iPhone 8 Plus, it gets OIS assistance and a f/2.4 lens for the secondary shooter. This also helps to capture telephoto shots brighter than the iPhone 8 Plus. On top of that, you’ll also get Portrait Mode with Lighting effects for the front camera.

The iPhone X is hitting Malaysia starting this Friday, 24 November 2017. Available in Silver and Space Grey, the iPhone X is officially priced at RM5,149 for 64GB and RM5,899 for 256GB. If you’re planning on getting one with a telco contract, do check out our plan comparison.

Why no comments. Seems nobody interested with Iphone X anymore


Clearly there is intense interest in iPhone X around the world. I think the real reason why there's a dearth of comments here is because almost everyone knows how biased SoyaCincau is.


    Just because they don’t share your point of view you call them biased. I think they are on point with the review. The iPhone X is just an experimental device. Touchid still better than faceid. If Apple put 512gb maybe worth it.


Coz this site is becoming a clickbait for ipsheeps and becoming bgr.. revisiting this review since top notch phone is a perfect top notch phone and the s9 is full of problems and negativity.
