Hi my friends, I am novice here. I would like to buy an iPhone X. Do I make a mistake? I like to play games and I don't know if the iPhone X will manage the most demanding games smoothly. I want the GPU in mobile which is powerful. Only I don't know when is the iPhone X more than 1 year old if it will sufficient for modern games on the highest graphics details.

Thank you for your advices.

All depends on the money you have/want to spend. Nothing more, nothing less.

I still have my iPhone X and it works like a charm and I play all the latest games, but obviously an iPhone XS will pump up those graphics some more.

Reasons? I don’t like LCD.
You said you wanted the best gpu. Right now the best gpu is in the a12.
iPhone X was released in 2017 and by September when the a13 is launched it will be over two years old.

If you want the most powerful right now, it’s going to be xr or xs.
For just playing games the xr should be more than enough and it has a larger display.

Good luck

I bought the X in the fall of 2018 after having 2 Maxes that didn’t work. I paid full price for a year old phone but was glad to do it as it works perfectly, whereas I couldn’t get a Max with workable reception.

At this point, I’m still super happy with my X and probably won’t look to upgrade until 2020.

However, if I were in your shoes, I’d wait if you can, until the fall to see the new offerings. If you need a phone now and can get a good deal on the X, go for it.

I am intrested in when I will have both X and XS side by side and play same game, if I will recognize the difference.

I have an X, my girlfriend has a yellow XR.

Believe me, the X is performing fine. The OLED is a little bit smaller, but much nicer than the XR LCD. I play multiple games, like Asphalt 9 and I don't see much difference.

Buy an X or XS if you worry about graphics. Which one of these just depends on how much cash you can/want to spend.
