Consumer Reports rubbishes iPhone X

Consumer Reports rubbishes iPhone X

The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone would have a metal back panel and it will be available in multiple color options.

According to Consumer Reports, when it comes to durability, the iPhone X is not the best purchase you can make.

With more OLED suppliers in the wings for 2018-2019, Samsung having exclusivity for iPhone displays will be coming to end in the not-too-distant future.

If you're tempted to splash out on Apple's luxurious - but ultra-expensive - iPhone X, you might want to read this.

It added that Malami expressed gratitude for the support of the worldwide community to the fight against corruption. He explained that the MoU spelt out the modalities of returning the sum of $321m by Switzerland to Nigeria.

Additionally, with the metal back on the 6.1-inch iPhone, Apple will also be able to make it more colorful since producing various color options in glass has proven to be hard. The device is expected to cost less than the iPhone X successor, for it is sporting a liquid crystal display. Apple continued to use LCD panels on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Casetek now supplies Apple with LCD screens for its iPads, so it could also be tapped by Apple to supply the new iPhone model with LCD panels.

The Nikkei report speculates that Apple's decision may be born from wanting to reduce its dependency on smartphone rival Samsung, its sole provider of OLED screens. Additional reports from Nikkei and Nomura Securities Co. And now, there are reports that Apple will be launching three phones in 2018 as well. It is expected to arrive as a sequel to the iPhone X. There will be another OLED iPhone dubbed as "Plus" model that will carry the same specs as the forthcoming 5.8-inch OLED iPhone, but it will be housing a larger display of 6.5 inches.

The iPhone X, which was released last month, was the first iPhone to feature an OLED display. The 5.8-inch OLED iPhone would offer a pixel density of 458ppi, same as the current iPhone X. The 6.5-inch OLED iPhone would have a pixel density of 480-500ppi.

Ming-Chi Kuo told investors that the next year's LCD iPhone would borrow a few elements from the iPhone X. It would ditch the Touch ID fingerprint reader for the new TrueDepth camera that enables Face ID and Animoji.
