Time Ranks iPhone X Second Best Gadget Of 2017, As Apple Watch Series 3 Earned #9 Spot

Apple’s most expensive iPhone ever made - iPhone X today has been placed at the #2 spot on TIME's "Top 10 Gadgets of 2017" list. According to the magazine, the new smartphone placed so highly because many of its features - including Face ID and edge-to-edge display -- "will undoubtedly set a new standard for phones to come."

Yes, it’s expensive. Yes, you’ll probably have a hard time getting your hands on one. And yes, Android did it first. But the iPhone X’s edge-to-edge screen and facial recognition system will undoubtedly set a new standard for phones to come. For one, Apple’s Face ID system, even despite the security concerns, is already being used in more creative ways than Samsung’s facial identification tech. Third-party apps like Snapchat and Warby Parker are taking advantage of the iPhone X’s face-mapping technology to project realistic masks over your eyes or select glasses that suit your face’s shape. That, combined with a sharp camera, long battery life, and large screen packed into a more palatable size, make Apple’s iPhone X a top pick.

Another Apple product to list on the Time’s Top 10 Gadgets of 2017 is the Apple Watch Series 3, which earned the #9 ranks. Time said that the advantages introduced in the new version of the Apple Watch, like a faster processor and barometric altimeter, were great additions. But the magazine said the truly notable addition was LTE, that allow you to leave your phone at home when running.

The freedom to leave your phone at home when you step out to walk the dog or go on a run may be just enough to persuade smartwatch skeptics that the Apple Watch is worth considering, especially for athletic types.

In addition to iPhone X and App Watch Series 3, the following gadgets round out the top five spots: Nintendo Switch (#1), Microsoft Surface Laptop (#3), DJI Spark (#4), as well as Samsung Galaxy S8 (#5). When asking why Nintendo Switch received the top spot, the magazine explains is a "true knockout" thanks to its games library and ability to transform from portable gaming to playing on a TV at home.
