It is important to note that the TrueDepth camera is the most unique camera featured on any phones. The opening weekend sales o fthe two handsets were far below the Apple's forecasts. At best, the iPhone X will simply match the battery life of the iPhone 8 Plus. As for the online pre-orders, it was also relatively cold, according to industry analysts.
