You love it, you hate it, but you really can’t ignore it.
Apple launched three smartphones -- iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X -- on its 10th anniversary on Tuesday. The smartphones feature facial recognition to unlock the device, and the iPhone X has an edge-to-edge 5.8-inch “super retina” display that has improved resolution.
The much-awaited iPhone X, a redesigned product of glass and stainless steel that Apple CEO Tim Cook called “the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone”, will cost Rs 89,000 in India.
From comparisons with its rival Android to sheer surprise at the price of the new iPhone, here are some of the funniest reactions on Twitter:
Figuring out the features first
The iPhone 8 now has glass on the front AND back so I can shatter my screen on 2 sides & stare into my reflection with disappointment twice— Korede (@aoasuni) September 13, 2017
So the iPhone X will unlock with facial recognition instead of home button. I feel sorry for iPhone X already. pic.twitter.com/mCRn1gYLUT— Vaibhav Vishal (@ofnosurnamefame) September 12, 2017

Twitter logic: If you can afford an iPhone, you can pay the cess tax
