But before taking it into consideration to by the new iPhone X you should decide that which smartphone platform you like the most and why, such as iOS or Android if you are an Apple fanboy and can’t live without iOS then you should definitely go with iPhone X but if not then I would recommend you have look on both these platform as both these mobile platforms come with totally different customization options for your smartphone.

iPhone X Over Note 8, Pixel 2 XL or the Mate 10 Pro

If we talk about Android it definitely dominates the smartphone market share worldwide because it offers more customization options than the iOS. On the other hand, iOS is the second largest OS in terms of market share after Android.

If you are making your mood to buy the new iPhone X then let me tell you a few things about why you should consider or buy or not buy the new iPhone X over Note 8, Pixel 2 XL or the Mate 10 Pro.
There could be so many reasons you might like about the new iPhone X such as, its design which really looks awesome with a bezel-less display, the wireless charging support, or the newly introduced Apple face ID.

The new iPhone also comes with Apple’s most powerful A11 Bionic chip which makes the iPhone X the most powerful iPhone ever. Apple claims that the new A11 Bionic chip provides 25% faster speeds on the two performance cores, and 70% faster performance from the four remaining efficiency cores.

The iPhone X Prices
However, there couldn’t be any problem for what the new iPhone X has to offer except its whopping price tag which starts from $999 and goes up to $1,149 for the 64GB or 256GB version in the US and in India the price starts from $1371 (Approx, Rs. 89,000) for the 64GB version and goes up to $1572 (Approx, Rs. 1,02,000) for the 256GB version.

I think the iPhone X price in India doesn’t suites with the price point of the majority of people because most people in India preferred to buy cheap and affordable smartphones which can easily fulfill their smartphone need without spending too much money on it and that’s why smartphones like Mi Note 4, Mi 4, Mi 4A, Moto G5 Plus, Moto G4, Yu Yureka Black and Lenovo K6 Power are some the smartphone names which are really popular among people in India.

All these smartphones offer great value for money for what they have to offer. But surely we can’t compare these low budget smartphones with the iPhone X, Note 8, Pixel 2 XL or the Mate 10 Pro as theses smartphones packs industries best in class hardware and specs for their pricing.

On the other hand, If you want to look over other Android smartphone options such as Note 8, Pixel 2 XL or the Huawei Mate 10 Pro comparing it with iPhone X then I think you can’t get a better Android smartphone like these. All these smartphones are some of the best Android smartphones you can buy.

All these smartphones are best in class and come with 10nm chip featuring 8-Cores and up to 12-Cores GPU based on 64-bit CPU architecture clocked at up to 2.45 GHz that provide phenomenal high-speed mobile performance by consuming less power and provides exceptionally long battery life.

The Galaxy Note 8 is currently selling via Amazon India at Rs. 67,900 for the 64GB variant that’s about Rs. 21,100 cheaper than the iPhone X Price in India. Google Pixel 2 Xl is now listed on Flipkart for Pre-order at Rs. 73,000 for the 64GB variant that’s about 16,000 cheaper than the Price of the iPhone X in India.

Lastly, we have the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, the smartphone is yet to be launched on November 15 and its expected price is Rs. 60,999 for the 64GB variant that’s about Rs. 28,000 cheaper than the iPhone X price in India.

It’s not just about the pricing of Android smartphones mentioned above, they also offer great value for money and packs industries best hardware and software on board. So, the biggest point comes here is that, if you are Apple fanboy or you simply loved the easy UI interface, Face ID, and Wireless charging support on the new iPhone X and price is not a big issue for you then you can by an iPhone X over Galaxy Note 8, Pixel 2 XL or the Mate 10 Pro.

But if you are from India and considering to by the iPhone X then you will have to pay Rs. 24,200 more for the 64GB variant, more than the price US version of the iPhone X and about Rs. 27,444 more for the 256GB variant.
