I don't like the price of iPhone X, but that is the only bad thing about it. $850-900 should be more realistic
One thing Samsung Note did before iphone is the blowup and the ban of Note 7 on planes. People have put battery in phones for years, and Samsung didn't do it right. Apple had some bad stuff too, but nothing at the scale of Note 7.
Samsung has made phones for years before Apple, losing the hi-end market to Apple is a clear defeat and showing inferior hardware and software design.
