    I feel like the iPhone X is more futuristic.

    For a little device, you’ve got 3D Touch, Face ID, OLED, edge to edge screen.

    The new MacBook pros have the OLED bar but it would be nice if Apple added more futuristic features (like edge edge screen).

    DISCLAIMER: I don’t own the latest MacBook Pro. I own the late 2013 2.6/8/256 model 13”

    Both are in the here and now. Nothing futuristic. No holograms or foldable displays. No brainscans. No thorium battery. What's futuristic about a notch a camerabump and a glas screen that breaks easily?

    I mean it’s a sleek enough design, but I wouldn’t even say it was as futuristic by today’s standards as the iPhone was in 2007, or even the 4 in 2010 (face time and retina alongside the first really beautiful design)

    The 4 was bananas. I’ll never forget that day.

    Still justifying spending 1k on a cell phone.

    On another note, my 2018 Honda Accord seems more futuristic than my 2005 iMac

    I see what you're saying. The present is never the future. Therefore, it is never futuristic.

    If you weelre an adult before the release of the iPhone you would realize that we are living the future of yesterday.

    They are entirely two different platforms with two different purposes. I don't know how you can compare them.

    But if you want to talk about the iPad line, the current iPad line feels extremely old with the iPhone x release.

    The iPad Pros with the 120Hz screens are more futuristic than the iPhone X.

    My 2015 rMBP looks pretty dang nice.

    But, they are two different products---

    Don't think either are futuristic---until I can say "Beam Me Up Scotty" to one of them---and it works---;)

    And the day that comes, it’s still not futuristic enough because it’ll always be the present.

    As much as I like the OLED display on the iPhone X, it’s not futuristic. I think what will be in advancement in display technology is once we reach micro LED, which will allegedly:

    • Improve battery power by as much as 300 percent.
    • Eliminate the need for backlighting unlike traditional LCDs.
    • Allow for higher-resolution screens with improved color gamut than other display technologies.
    • Provide two to three times the brightness of their OLED counterparts under the same power consumption.
    • Require much less investment than traditional TFT LCD display panels to reach economies of scale.
    Interesting note:
    • Micro-LED chips are so small that a five-inch 400-by-600 pixel smartphone panel requires nearly one million and a 4K TV panel about 50 million chips.
