The price gap of the upcoming iPhone X, the most expensive iPhone in the history, enlarged to up to 1,400 yuan (US$212)  between Chinese mainland and Hong Kong.

In the Chinese mainland, Apple will start pre-order of iPhone X on October 27 and start shipping on November 3. The 64 gigabyte model cost 8,388 yuan while the 256 GB model cost 9,688 yuan. Comparatively, the models sold in Hong Kong were 1,200 to 1,400 yuan cheaper.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models will start pre-order on Friday and start shipping next Friday.

Chinese netizens are curious about the new technology called FaceID or facial recognition on iPhone X, which will replace the fingerprint sensor for unlocking the phone.

People are concerned about security and accuracy rate of the new technology, who spread related pictures and worry on social websites.

This iPhone X has to be the dumbest bet by Apple.
You can't use the button because there's no more button to unlock the iPhone.
But then you need to use your face to unlock the iPhone everytime you want to use it?
Dumb idea. Just plain dumb.

Because, as P.T. Barnum once said ... "There's a sucker born every minute."
It's hard to win an argument with a smart person. It's damned near impossible to win an argument with a stupid person.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
