Apple claims the iPhone X to be revolutionary. Apple claims that they’ve been innovating for 10 years to create this dream-like full-screen phone.

And most people would believe that. Then you look deeper and wouldn’t help but ask yourself, ‘What is so special about the iPhone X compared to other phones?’; maybe even the one you’re reading this on.

Below are some of the reasons iPhoneX is not what Apple claimed it is:

  1. Full screen display. (Displays bought from Samsung who already had phones with full-screen displays like the Samsung Galaxy S8) NOT INNOVATION.
  2. Augmented Reality (There are already many apps for this available. In fact, Sony’s phones come with an app made by Sony themselves where you can watch an entire dinosaur habitat (sound familiar?), and a bunch of other themes come to life on your phone. NOT INNOVATION.
  3. Dual Optical-Stabilized 12MP cameras (Sound familiar? Galaxy Note 8, cough, cough) NOT INNOVATION
  4. Dual Optical-Stabilized 12MP cameras (Sound familiar? Galaxy Note 8, cough, cough) NOT INNOVATION.
  5. Face ID (Just another word for facial scanners/facial recognition already on many phones. They just improved it. But improving technology is not innovating. Re-inventing technology is innovation. Face ID is certainly not reinventing. NOT INNOVATION.
  6. Wireless Charging (This is just a complete joke. The Samsung Galaxy S3 had wireless charging!) NOT INNOVATION.
  7. Animoji’s (Got to give Apple credit here. There’s currently no widespread talking emoji software.) AMAZING INNOVATION!!! POOP CAN TALK NOW!!!

Verdict: Unless you count a talking poop emoji as innovation, the iPhone X is not innovative.
