It's time to make......a very highly anticipated video.I've been compiling some ideas.I've been doing my job.Because a little while back,I made a video called: Switching to the iPhone 10And you probably noticed that in front of me,there's an iPhone X right here.When a new smartphone comes in here,I don't always switch over to it exclusively.I don't always put my SIM card into that device.But you see this device here, this is a flagship, this gets a lot of attention.The notch, the lack of the home button,the lack of the fingerprint scanner.So because of that, I had to make an effort to really invest myself into it.So I could give you guys the type of feedbackthat might help you determine whether or not this phone is for you.I do wanna let you know that there is no perfect smartphone.No single smartphone that it's the best smartphonefor absolutely everyone, so because of that,I'm gonna be having a giveaway coming up shortly,for the smartphone of your choice.Android or iOS? You pick the smartphone and I give it away.So go follow me on Twitter right now and stay tuned for a tweet with all the details.Alright, the iPhone. First of all, I'm happy Apple was ambitious.They said, "Hey, it's time to finally do something different!"Now, it's not because they thought it would be fun to do so,It's because the market place have been pushing in that direction.We've had shrinking bezels from almost every major competitor inthe smartphone space. We want more screen,we don't want bigger phone.Anytime you're making a change, you're taking a risk.You get rid of the home button?You're gonna have some users that are like"But, wait, I- I- I- liked it"Your quick settings moving up to the top right corner,that had to be utilized for this new home gesture, let's call it.Which also accesses the multitasking gesture.I think a lot of what's being talked aboutfrom an interface perspective,feels a little bit disjointed.A lot of that comes from your preconceived notions of how you'regoing to interact with the deviceYou expect things to work a certain wayand when they don't work that way, it's goingto take a while to adjust. The face works...but the processis not something that I consider to be enjoyable.And it's something that I speculated might come up for mewhen I saw the original keynote."It's as easy as looking at itand swiping up..and--ya know...Let's try that again.Oh-ho-ho"You know I'm lying in bed, I wanna reach over and quicklyunlock it, and my glasses are off and my hat is offand it will miss. Alright? Now with fingerprint scannerthat doesn't happen. But there's also, kind of strange waythat you interact with it, is almost like bowing to yourphone. You adjust you, "clearing throat sound"there is a little bit of that. Sometimes there's a little bit of aan adjustment here. You when you will get a little unlock thereYou're not done. It's an unlock, and then it's a swipe upIt's a two step process. I'm a fan of technologyso I like that progression. But then also I picked upthe OnePlus 5T, and was like BWAMM!I have it over here. I pointed towards you,NADA!BAAAMMMMM!!!IT'S A THING! It's just using the front facing camera. You see that right there?You wanna go fingerprint, GO FINGERPRINT! .2 seconds.Options are good. The camera is good, maybe the best.Cameras good.Build quality is solid,it feels great. It just feels expensiveWireless charging. Finally, it's great. Using it in my car,use beside the bed. I never charged it with a cable, not once.Weirdly though. Because of how much this cameraprotrudes here. Some wireless chargers,make contactbetter than others.That camera humprears its ugly head as well. The speaker! The secondloudest speaker that I tested on smartphone after the Razer Phone,which is huge and has these, these giant speaker units.I wanna give you the backstory on how I got to this phone as mydaily driver. Galaxy S8. Moved on the S8 Active.Bigger battery. To the Pixel 2 XL"We got the fancy wallpaper, with the waves coming in beautifully."Took the SIM and I put that to the Razer Phone.My goodness... with the 120 hertzs,Yes! That's what it should look like. Comes at a cost,because you're not getting an OLED display.Gotta have the OLED. I gotta have it!So the SIM card came out, and it went into the OnePlus 5T.You saw that unboxing video. But to round up myfeelings hereabout the iPhone X, it's an ambitious project for Apple here,they're trying to change the core interactionthat you've had with your iPhone forever.I like ambitiousness.But the problem is,when you're a device,that's a thousand dollars plus.I'm not sure you paying strictly for ambition.What you want is no excuses. I don't think you can haveexcuses in a thousand bucks. Because a thousand bucks now representstwice the price of something like the OnePlus 5T.I get an enormous numberof notifications. Probably, 400 e-mails a day.But when I switched to this phone, I had exposure tothe notification system that exist on here.I'm not telling you anything new when it comes to notifications. I'm not the firstperson who's complained about it. But on Android, if you've ever used it,it will stack 'em. And you can drag downand see the most recent one. But this is a good phone.I think a lot of people would buy this thingand be happy with it. But that doesn't change the fact that I don'tthink that you should. And I don't think that you should because of the price.Because to me, there's no way that this phoneis twice as good as this phone.That's the OnePlus 5T. It's not two times betterThis is $499. Snapdragon 835, Dual LensSystem with Portrait mode, Fingerprint Scannerworks in .2 seconds, facialrecognition which works way faster than the iPhone,dual SIM card tray instead of single. A headphone jackfor the headphone lovers because why not? Slightly less pixel density.But still OLED, 6-inches.I'd be showing this display to people. I'd put this display, thisdisplay, and this display. Almost everybodypick the OnePlus display.These are all nice displays. The trouble is there is only one phone in here that's athousand dollars and up. ONLY ONE!Android phones are getting good. The competition thatexists is driving the price of betterdown. That's an S8 just below$600 probably on Amazon. That's the OnePlus 5T,$500. And this on the far right,is of course the Essential Phone. $449. It's a lotmore competitive now. I know, in this audience right herethere are die hard iOS users,and I respect that. And I know there's value there,for you as an individual. You could get a OnePlus 5Tand an Xbox, for less than the iPhone. You could get the OnePlus 5Tand an extra one as a gift for your spouse.You could get a OnePlus 5T and a plane ticketfor a vacation, for less than the iPhone. It's my responsibilityto bring light to that. This phoneis not two times better than that phone.I'm sitting here because you guys trust me to tell you whatI'm thinking. I just can't tell you tobuy this phone. My recommendationis to not buy the iPhone X. If youlook around, you will be amazed at what's happeningat half the price. What I want you to do is leave a comment down below,and let me know what you're gonna dowith that extra $500 inyour pocket.This episode of Unbox Therapy has been sponsored byGoDaddy.
