Sarah Tew / CNET
Apple's iPhone X is only two years old, but the company has already stopped selling devices. Although it is understandable to make room for the newer iPhones, the change is still surprising given the relatively new version of the iPhone X. It's still a great phone. The rear-facing telephoto camera shoots out the iPhone 8 Plus in low-light conditions and the front-facing camera takes impressive selfies in portrait mode, it's Samsung's flagship from last year and it does not take impressive shots in low light conditions. The Galaxy S9 is still an excellent phone. It has a brilliant 5.8-inch display, a great camera, a headphone jack, wireless charging and water resistance.
