Well, iPhone X is truly an amazing product from Apple. It deserves to be the most expected smartphone this year. However, looking at the price tag $999, I am a little bit confused “What’s the hell make it so expensive?”. Then I came up with a question “What is the best alternative of iPhone X in the market, this year?”. I started looking at some alternatives that have the same features and lower price in comparison with iPhone X. Here are the answers!

Top 5 alternatives of iPhone X – Lower price, same features

1. Samsung Galaxy S8


It is hard to look beyond Samsung’s flagship Android handset for an alternative to the iPhone X. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a beautiful device that introduced an infinity display before Apple. The screen slides seamlessly to the side of the phone and it is water resistant.

The S8 has a fingerprint scanner on the back and facial recognition, while the iPhone X only has its facial recognition software. Samsung’s Bixby virtual assistant now has full voice control, like Apple’s well-known Siri assistant. But the S8 raises the bar on current smartphones and is probably the best Android phone you can buy.

Why can it be an alternative of iPhone X? With Face ID and waterproofing the S8 draws level on some points, but Siri is a far superior voice assistant for now.

Price: From $424.99 (After qualifying trade-in)* Or $17.71 /mo for 24mos at 0% APR  with Samsung Financing (excludes tax and shipping)

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Samsung tried to get ahead of Apple by releasing its new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone a few weeks before the iPhone 8 launch. The Note 8 features a powerful dual-lens camera, like the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus, but also comes with its stylus S-pen, which can make notes and send live messages and gifs.

It also has a large, 6.3-inch infinity display, although if you prefer a smaller phone the iPhone X is just over 5.8 inches. It also comes with facial identification and has a fingerprint scanner on the back.

Why can it be an alternative of iPhone X? An incredibly powerful Android phone that just undercuts the iPhone X, although many people will prefer Apple’s iOS 11 operating system.

4. OnePlus 5

One plus 5

The OnePlus 5 is one of our favourite Android smartphones of 2017, although most people would be forgiven for mistaking the OnePlus 5 for an iPhone 8 Plus, with its dual camera and similar profile. The OnePlus 5 is one of the fastest Android phones around and has a 20MP dual camera that takes fantastic photos.

It has a stellar battery life as well, easily measuring up to the best Apple has on offered to date. The battery easily lasts 36 hours, but you can probably squeeze more out of it. It comes with 6GB or 8GB of RAM, making for a hugely powerful device.

Why can it be an alternative of iPhone X? It’s definitely going to be cheaper and is lightning fast, but the iPhone X has more innovative features.

Price: From $479

5. HTC U11


HTC’s U11 is the Taiwanese company’s most powerful smartphone to date. It has received rave reviews for its stunning and colorful design and the punchy 2,560 x 1,440 resolution of its 5.5-inch screen. Inside is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 that gives the device some serious speed.

It also has its innovative squeezable sides feature, which can be used for taking selfies or zooming the camera. The U11 has all day battery life and 64GB of internal storage, maybe not as top of the range iPhone X, but it keeps the fingerprint scanner and even has facial recognition.

Why can it be an alternative of iPhone X? Both will have facial recognition, but the HTC keeps Touch ID, although the iPhone’s screen will cover almost the entire front of the phone.

Price: $649
