Technically incorrect offers a slightly twisted view of the technology that has taken over our lives.
It was, apparently, tan nearby.
However, the iPhone X, the future of Apple's smart phone, was simply not good enough. Not quite as good as the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
That's the curious conclusion of the Consumer Reports evaluators.
The consumer assistance publication is outlined to be nice, like a British public head that tells its parents that their child is not up to the requirements of the school.
The camera of the X is "fantastic" and the screen is "beautiful". "The best phones, among which the X found a place, are separated by a couple of points on a scale of 1
The big question, however, is the durability of the phone." The respected publication concluded that the 8 and the 8 Plus "proved more resilient in a test designed to reproduce falls and loose balloons that can cause cracked screens and other damage."
As soon as the X came up, my CNET colleagues conducted their own test of resistance and fall andthat broke the first time it fell.
The back of the glass is not exactly conducive to a resistant treatment, yet the 8 and 8 Plus also have backup Consumer Reports insists that these phones are "more resistant to breakage."
Battery life is another area in which the iPhone X displeased testers.
Even more painfully, perhaps, the publication classifies the X lower than the Samsung Galaxy S8, the S8 + and the Note 8.
Apple did not respond immediately to a request for comments.
Apple, however, in the past had a slight setback with Consumer Report. At the end of last year, the publication offered a critical vision of the MacBook Pro. The problem was.
It's not like Apple is the only manufacturer that gets a less than perfect revision. Microsoft had its Surface tablets.
Still, as I discovered in my wanderings around(and ), the most important thing is how a phone feels, how much it wants to pay, how much It is embedded in an ecosystem and if the store vendor would really prefer it if he buys something else.
In fact, last week, a T-Mobile seller happily. (My colleague Scott Stein .)
I'm afraid there will not be too many teeth grinding in Cupertino. It is said that Apple6 million iPhone X phones during the weekend of Black Friday.
Even more reassuring, I have not seen any reports of iPhone X devices exploding.
Do you still have a Mac? Apple executives explain why MacBook Pro had been in manufacturing for more than four years and why we should care.
