In fact, the popularity of the newly released iPhone is hot in US, and the popularity of iPhone X, which is analyzed with Big Data Traffic (Google Search Trend), is very different from Galaxy Note 8.
There is also a high evaluation of usability. Especially, the new interface of iPhone X has attracted the acclaim that it makes connection with users more organic. However, there is a lot of opinions regarding the usability of the notch display. There are comments that it is inconvenient to watch the video and that the app development environment will deteriorate. Moreover, there are some concerns that the functionality of the iPhone X’s AR will be inferior. Unlike the VR market (VR market includes global companies such as Google and Samsung), AR market will be less useful due to the limited content. On the other hand, it is also argued that the AR market is going to grow faster because of the nature of Apple users who have a high percentage of paid app purchases.
Apart from the beautiful design and innovative new technology of iPhone X, the price difference of $ 300 leads to the prediction that the sales of iPhone 8 will be higher instead of iPhone X.
