The rebooted iPhone we'd been waiting for

The iPhone X was a huge gamble from Apple, yet one that really paid off six months into our testing. Losing the home button and altering the design was a dangerous move, but one that was sorely needed after years of similarity and the premium design, extra power, all-screen front mix together to create - by far - the best iPhone Apple's ever made.

It's impossible to give a perfect score to something that costs this much - but this is the closest to smartphone perfection Apple has ever got. Apple itself is calling it the future of the smartphone, the embodiment of what it’s been trying to achieve for a decade.

But while the iPhone X is all about premium parts and an all-new experience, it’s a huge gamble for the Cupertino brand too, as it tries to reclaim some leadership in smartphone innovation. The fervor around this phone tells that story – everyone wants to know if the iPhone X is worth having, partly because it actually represents a new iPhone, and that fervor is such that they don’t seem to care about the cost.
