Apple obviously has no goal to sell more iPhone X than the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus. This follows from the statements of employees of the American Apple Store, interviewed by CNET journalists. According to them, buying an iPhone X instead of the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, consumers overpay for a more modern design, but in return they get much more inconvenience than they think.
When answering CNET's question about which iPhone model is worth buying, the Apple Store employee answered very unambiguously. "It all depends on what you like," he says. – The biggest problem that you will encounter, if you buy an iPhone X, will be confirmation of contactless payments through Face ID. You will need to keep the smartphone at a certain angle, otherwise nothing will work. "
According to a seller from another Apple store, the iPhone X and iPhone 8 are, in fact, the same phone. "If we talk about the hardware component, then these models are completely identical – so an employee of one of the San Francisco Apple Store answered the question about the ideal iPhone. "Buying the iPhone X, you just pay extra money for the design."
Surprisingly, neither one nor the other vendors mentioned the animoji, the managing gestures available to the owners of the iPhone X, and its stunning display. Even the Face ID interface, claimed by the manufacturer as one of the top ten chips, was rated by the Apple Store staff as a negative rather than a positive innovation. And how do you think?
