“Apple’s latest iPhone isn’t just the most interesting iPhone in years, but it’s easily the best smartphone ever made,” Dan Seifert writes for The Verge. “The iPhone X has almost everything you could think to ask for in a smartphone: blazing-fast performance, a gorgeous display, top-of-the-class cameras, loud, clear speakers, reliable battery life, and a head-turning design. In addition, the X is water resistant and can be recharged with a wireless pad.”

“Apple’s extensive support system, through both its own and carrier stores, is another incredibly important point in the iPhone’s favor. There’s simply no other company that provides as much support for a smartphone after you purchase it,” Seifert writes. “On top of that, since it’s an iPhone, the iPhone X enjoys the broadest support of accessories and cases.”
