The iPhone X could set things apart but is it worth it?

The iPhone X could set things apart in the long-term battle of mobile devices giants in Malaysia, thought the price list for the 10th version of Apple’s phone is now known.

The price list has already been announced in Malaysia, and it comes with a whopping price tag. 

The base model which comes with a capacity of 64gb would cost you around RM5,149, a thing never seen in the mobile phone segment.


This phone literally costs more than Apple’s cheapest Macbooks. Some people would justify the price by saying that the trendier iPhone X has more features than the regular 8 or 8 Plus. 

The difference between them is the screen, which is beautiful in my opinion but not worth RM5,149 nor the new technology called Face ID.

But reports said the iPhone 8 and X would have the same processor, the A11 chip, it would mean that performance wise it would be similar.

The camera department is where everything would change for the X, it has 2 front cameras and 2 back cameras, which means we can take the famous “portrait” photos on the front camera now.

There were rumours that the iPhone X was to have their Touch ID embedded in the lower part of its screen, but apparently, Apple does not have the technology to do so.

Some analysts said that the sales of the iPhone 8 are slow, but I think we all know that it is probably due to the iPhone X as that’s the phone that everybody would want to own and is waiting for.

Nevertheless, the new releases of iPhones have been boring lately as their design never really changed. From the 6 to 6s, to the 7 now the 8, they all look similar, but not the X.

Today the trend for smartphones is to have that fancy edge-to-edge display which is, again, beautiful, like the Samsung S8, Note 8 and the iPhone X.
