IPhone X isn't almost as good as Samsung's new phones - here's why

Galaxy S9 new cooling solution

iPhone X's battery life is also a matter of concern if we go by the CR reports. There were three units of the phone put into the tumbler that repeatedly drops the phone from a height of almost 2.5 feet for about 150 times. The phones are checked for damage after 50 drops and then again after 100. The other two units reported of display break down after the first 50 falls only. It won't be wrong to say that iPhone X received special attention from Apple during the advertisement campaign.

However, the handset did make the firm's top ten recommended phones - although owners were advised to use a case. And while the popular publication called the Apple OLED flagship an "innovative device with a fantastic camera and attractive display", the iPhone X also lost to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in a full comparison. The phone lags behind the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus also.

We all know that the competition between Apple and Samsung is high but it could just have been elevated by a new report by Consumer Reports that dismisses the idea that the iPhone X is the best phone ever.

Pictet & Cie Europe SA Buys 6183 Shares of Schlumberger Limited. (SLB)
The stock witnessed 0.93% gains, 6.39% gains and -1.73% declines for the 1-month, 3-month and 6-month period, respectively. Bellecapital International Ltd holds 2.41% of its portfolio in Schlumberger Limited (NYSE: SLB ) for 41,743 shares.

It seemed like Apple was proud of the technology that they had incorporated in the phone.

The phone also scored good in the camera department.

To find out exactly how long a phone's battery can go, Consumer Reports uses a robotic finger programmed to put the phone through a range of tasks created to simulate a consumer's average day.

The battery tests of the handset also set the phone's screen to 100% brightness - whereas the screen is set to auto dim to conserve battery life. The iPhone X lasted only for 19.5 hours in the battery test on the other side Samsung S8 lasted for 26 hours and the iPhone 8Plus lasted for 21 hours.

Besides iPhone X, Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones also had broken displays and back panels after the test. Richard Fisco, head of smartphone testing at CR says, "If not for the damage in that durability test, the iPhone X would have come in ahead of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus".

While for many people 19.5 hours is enough to get them through the day, it's still shorter than the majority of the 38 smartphones we recommend. It does not have the size or the features or the battery life but at $1000 dollars, the iPhone X is a vulnerable phone.

Bomber joins US-South Korea drills
State Department official, is the highest-level United Nations official to visit North Korea since 2012. President Donald Trump's administration was "begging for nuclear war" by staging the drills.

According to Apple, the iPhone X's A11 Bionic chip is created to manage the device's power supply intelligently, balancing the demands for speed and energy in a way that permits you to complete the tasks you perform most often-think texting or web browsing-with optimal efficiency. In our tests, the iPhone 7's battery lasted 18.5 hours.
