Besides the expectedly faster A11 soc over Exynos, i can't help but see Apple is late to the innovation game now. Though i noticed some microstutter in X multitasking.

I chuckled a lil when Apple hype up their choice of OLED. Samsung has the accuracy and brightness spot on already.

Even the design, Samsung has Apple beat. X looks like a chunky beta hardware

That camera indent is pretty irritating. While you'd probably get used to it for regular use, I imagine video apps and such just won't use the whole screen - in which case, what's the point? Just cut the screen there.

iPhone X looks pretty bad. Android manufacturers have been releasing phones that look better than that (while still having a fingerprint scanner), and that cost way less.

Isn't "apple" as a verb: "make a lot of money on yesterday's innovations from design"? If so: no, Samsung isn't out-appling Apple anytime soon.

Probs, the X has some terrible design language.

I update annually generally, but I'm thinking I'll keep my 7 Plus around

The note 8 and the s8 blow the iPhones outta the water I'm really thinking of getting that note 8 but I love iOS its hard to give it up.

Plus my Samsung phones in the past felt like garbage software wise after a year or so and my mom has only been on galaxy's phones since the s3 and it's been more bad than good.

Samsung passed Apple when they released the Galaxy 8. They will push that lead further when they release on screen finger print scanner on the next model.

I love the back of the Essential Phone. It's just sooooooo clean.

Apple jumped the shark post Jobs. Lots of half baked products with poorly thought out design. They've still got fans and momentum, so it won't show in sales anytime soon, but they're slipping.

Fixed.
Apple has been playing catch up since Samsung dropped the S7. Seems like with the X they are getting there.

Samsung looks better than the iPhone X and Essential to me. I would prefer a full bezel at the top for the camera/sensors/LED than a notch.

Still would miss the home button/finger sensor at the bottom thought.

ITT so far Samsung > iPhone > Essential, for me looks wise.

Tiny camera section on the Essential looks worse than the larger notch on iPhone IMO.

They both look really nice. I think the Galaxy has a better feature set, but the iPhone looks better for media content. What's up with those huge bezels in that screenshot on the Galaxy?

With X and Essential it don't like you are losing small portion of the screen watching videos in landscape. Maybe i would get used to it, but now it this is flaw for me.

That iPhone X with wonder woman on it is not an official mock up is it? I'm under the impression the movie would be in a letterbox format to preserve the proper aspect ratio on the screen and keep the camera sensor from dipping into the movie's view. Though it could have a expanded view seizing that fills the whole screen I suppose.

OnePlus 3T has a beautiful back. Though there's no denying the phone is iPhone inspired.

On topic; that Galaxy S8 looks years ahead of the X.

Most certainly.

Correct, hands-on articles have said that videos black out the entire “top”

Nah, it's kinda like the texture of denim jeans with a little more rubbery feel to help with grip. It was great.

At least you can probably hold X somewhat comfortably without fear of starting something - that can't be said about S8 and other curved nonsense phones.
