The flagship iPhone X earned good reviews. CNET gave Apple’s most-awaited smartphone four-and-a-half stars.
“[The] iPhone X is an overdue and winning evolution of the iPhone, but you’ll need to leave your comfort zone to make a jump into the face-recognizing future,” claims columnist Scott Stein, who particularly compliments the comfortable design, the OLED screen, the cameras, and Face ID on Apple’s flagship.
Engadget gives the all-new iPhone a score of 90/100.
“The iPhone X is the most radical change to the iPhone formula ever, and despite some concerns, Apple has built a seriously impressive machine.”
However, one of the main concerns columnist Chris Velazco has about the device is its battery life. And he is surely not the only one. Many users owning iPhone X are the users of the iPhone 6 Plus or 7 Plus. The former has a 2,915 mAH battery, while the latter comes with a 2,900 mAH battery. The latest iPhone X has a 2,716 mAH battery, and using it will definitely reveal its battery life

My battery life on the iPhone X is concerning. Maybe it’s just because I am stressing it during testing. Anyone else see bad battery life?

Well, of course, not everybody is complaining. Some pointed out that the latest iPhone is slightly larger than the company’s earlier iPhones such as the recently-released iPhone 8. Putting a 2,900 mAH battery in the iPhone X, if that’s even possible, would make the device possibly explode like the Galaxy Note 7.
According to tests by Tom’s Guide, the battery life on the iPhone X is somewhat better than the iPhone 8. However, the iPhone 8 Plus, the Samsung Galaxy S8+, and the Google Pixel 2 XL easily beat the iPhone X when it comes to battery life.
Still, many people claim to use the phone without recharging it. However, if one uses the phone for heavy internet surfing and constantly turned-on GPS, you may face a battery problem.
For people who need more battery life on the X, it is advised that you lower the brightness levels. There is no way you will need to operate the new iPhone on full brightness levels. As Fortune points out, you can also set the iPhone X to “Low Power Mode.”
