Weekly poll: are you buying an Apple iPhone X?

You can now pre-order an iPhone X but will you? Its the first-ever iPhone with an AMOLED screen and the first to drop the Home button.

This also makes it the first to feature advanced facial recognition via its TrueDepth camera and the first to shave down the bezels to a point where even most Androids will get a little jealous.

Despite some solid upgrades like the first mobile 4K@60fps video capture, first 1080p@240fps too the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus felt a little underwhelming. Not much has changed, their design barely differ from 2014s iPhone 6.

With the iPhone X Apple makes bold departure from its classic styling, its almost as if the last shreds of DNA from the original iPhone have been replaced. If ever there was a time to upgrade to the best iPhone, this one is it a revolution instead of evolution.

Weekly poll: are you buying an iPhone X?

But did Apple go too crazy? You could certainly argue that the price is crazy, the X is the most expensive mass-produced phone ever, outside of exotics like the Porsche Design Mates and, previously, BlackBerries. FaceID is yet to prove itself against the battle-tested TouchID, that notch on top is just annoying to app and web developers alike.

And supplies are quite limited the iPhone X features so many new components that there were multiple speed bumps in the supply chain. Some will argue this makes them all the more valuable, others will see it as a sign to jump ship.

So, where do you go from here?
