Android phones are now failing at twice the rate of Apple's iPhones

Participating schools, groups or individuals gather donated phones and once enough phones have been collected, Swapkit will arrange a pick up and gift an iPad, laptop or tablet depending on how many are collected.

Although the iPhone X offers several cutting edge new features, like facial recognition, wireless charging, and a massive edge-to-edge OLED screen, several Android phones already offer similar characteristics. Xiaomi has the shortest cycle with 80 percent of the users replace their phones within two years. Then you'd really have an excuse to upgrade.

Portrait Lighting, brings dramatic studio lighting effects to iPhone, allowing customers to capture stunning portraits with a shallow depth-of-field effect in five different lighting styles. And it is not every day you come across something that goes on to have a lasting impact on you. The device refused to unlock.

The iPhone 8/8 Plus models are, however, getting one feature that the iPhone X boasts: wireless charging. At $999 (in India, it is likely to cost Rs 89,000) for the 64GB and $1,149 (Rs 1,02,000) for the 256GB variant, the device is the most expensive iPhone ever.

I'm not just referring to the fact that Samsung is the sole supplier of the iPhone X's OLED screen, letting Apple finally start moving away from LCD screens.

Apple Inc. has officially unveiled their latest generation of iPhone devices called the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, along with the introduction of the iPhone X (termed as iPhone 10). The Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone X are undoubtedly both gorgeous, top-tier flagships. Apple, meanwhile, is forced to bank on its core customers- fan boys. The iPhone X retains the 3GB of memory included in the iPhone 8 Plus, and for that matter the iPhone 7 Plus. To be honest the finger print lock seems the most convenient and secure. However, this will increase in accidental invoking of Siri or Apple Pay in pockets. They allow files and projects to be accessible mobile but you will not get all the capabilities as the computer.

The problem for Apple is that phones are heading into toaster territory.

The Note 8 is, of course, a phablet with a bigger display, but there's a tradeoff in ergonomics.

The iPhone X will be speedier and much more powerful, it will also have a better front-facing camera, and manages to be more efficient in its screen-to-body ratio.

Perhaps there will be an app to make an iPhone 6 run like an iPhone 4. Attention to detail is Apple's thing. Interestingly, the same hardware that supports FaceID also powers animoji as well.

Fingerprint-scanning Touch ID has been replaced with facial-recognition Face ID. But both devices deliver the augmented reality technology that was mentioned explicitly by Apple CEO Tim Cook ahead of the release of these handsets. While this means bad news for the other players in the segment like the AirFuel alliance, wireless charging coming to the iPhone is the best news this industry has had in years.

Got your eye on that iPhone X, though? The new scanner is capable of mapping the user's face and recognize in an instant, thanks to the new Apple A11 Bionic processor that features a Neural Engine.

It beats out the iPhone in water resistance with an IP68 rating. Indeed, according to media reports, this puts the Apple smartphone in the ballpark of the Google Pixel 2; excellent news for Apple considering the extra cache its branding undoubtedly carries. While Apple's face-scanning technology may prove itself to be far superior to Samsung's, it would have been nice for the iPhone X to have a familiar and well-liked alternative to the unproven and, in some cases at least, intimidatingly futuristic, Face ID and the old-fashioned PIN.
