  1. Kuwait says:

    And they’re also accepting kidneys as payment.

  2. Sam says:

    Are these the official prices?

    Also, Xcite is useless.

  3. Sarcasmo says:

    Does the price include anything else like an iPad or a car or something?

    Do the digits people need money really really really really badly?

    If they’re charging this much for the phone, are they going to actually honor the Apple Care warranty or continue shaking people down because they’re tremendous tremendous assholes?

    • Mark says:

      Ummm are you aware how much the iPhone X costs in the States? It starts at KD327 with 8% tax. The price in Kuwait is basically the same price as in the states and it’s set by apple not digits. So all the local authorized dealers will be selling at the same price.

  4. Salah says:

    400 KDs. Apple broke their own god damn prices record.

  5. James says:

    Incredible. And for nothing. The old hp x3 and lumia 950xl had retinal scan, fingerprint access and more importantly has the best processor- For a mere 100kd. What is the world coming to? This piece of crap falls down and you’ll fork out another months rent. What people do for hype and status symbols.

    • Mark says:

      I think it has more to do with you not knowing what you’re talking about

    • Nasser says:

      The best processor? No one does better silicon than Apple does

      Their A11 chip is more powerful than their MacBook Pro, let alone other phone processsors

    • afnan says:

      do you even research bro?

    • k says:

      a vast majority of users actually like the phone, it has nothing to do with “status symbol” or “hype”. if people want to spend 400, 500 or even 1000 kd on a phone that’s their choice so theres no need to be a judgemental prick. if you’re happy with your 100 kd phone then that’s great but pls shut the fuck up james.

      • James says:

        My point being this phone does what any other phone does – calls, WhatsApp, apps. People are being ripped off blindly but as the prick k said, everyone is entitled to stay blind. My opinion so peace out while you shell out 😃 and k… State your opinion and shut the f**k up. This is a blog and for discussions. Grow up

        • Mark says:

          You can get a 15kd phone that can WhatsApp, does that mean you’re a fucking idiot who got ripped off cuz you paid 100kd for your phone that also has WhatsApp? If you don’t understand technology, that’s just you. Just because people buy iPhones and you don’t doesn’t mean they’re getting ripped off while you aren’t.

          • James says:

            You’re being ignorant on purpose and arguing for the heck of it.i did not compare it with a 15kd phone but with phones that had comparable specs. My point is there are others out there that does everything it does for way cheaper. The price point is ridiculous and for nothing.

            • Mark says:

              You’re the ignorant one, there isn’t any other phone with the same specs, you compared it to a phone with much lesser specs and stated they both had WhatsApp so same same. But then again you seem to know better than apple and the rest of the market about their product pricing so you should probably hit them and apply for a job there…

              • james says:

                Haha.I may have worked there so no comments. Again slight jump in specs don’t justify astronomical jumps in prices.i call out thievery when I see it, irrelevant that users are prepared to be ripped off. If people don’t call out, this absurdness will be the new normal. I’m glad to see there are others here who agree.

  6. allo says:

    wow iphone price is more than my rent.
    The tag line should have been Iphone X – Say hello to your ex.

  7. Ahmed says:

    iphone is crap

    • James says:

      I don’t think its crap but the price is exorbitant and for nothing. Apple has managed to turn a few into zombies and they’re all marching with 500KD to the nearest store going “X X X X” with their hands out.

  8. cajie says:

    Well, the Google Pixel 2 is being sold for KD 300/- so the Apple prices are not exactly astronomical.
    The premium phones are getting more expensive, and the cheaper phones getting cheaper. There is everything for everyone.

    • Burhan says:

      This price is going to come down drastically once the iPhone X is out.

      At least, that’s what I am hoping.

      Mark – I know a lot of the mobile providers also announced the iPhone X on Friday, any ideas of packages/pricing?

  9. kiraster says:

    …Are they serious ? Razer just showed their phone yesterday at night and the specification are way better for 699$

  10. james says:

    My point being this phone does what any other phone does – calls, WhatsApp, apps. People are being ripped off blindly but as the prick k said, everyone is entitled to stay blind. My opinion so peace out while you shell out 😃

  11. KAA says:

    iPhone X is being sold now at Khalid Bin Al Waleed shops

  12. Tester says:

    Don’t know if digits stuck to the above prices you mentioned, but Xcite are ripping ppl off by forcing you to buy a 2 year warranty which makes the prices as below

    iPhone X – 64GB = 411KD
    iPhone X – 256GB = 477KD

    The thing that really pisses me off the most is how they claim they won’t sell you the phone without you taking the warranty! Apple products already come with a 1 year warranty!! Why am I forced to buy additional warranty.

    • Tester says:

      Correction to the above

      iPhone X – 64GB = 416.500KD
      iPhone X – 256GB = 477.800KD

      Its an additional 1 year warranty as well not 2!

    • k says:

      yup – noticed this yesterday and had me fuming. i cant believe they’re forcing the warranty, the whole thing is a farce honestly, just so they can benefit from higher margins. the really fucked up thing is i can guarantee that in a couple weeks, when the hype dies down, and peices start to plateau, they’ll drop to the normal prices “without warranty” making it wven more obvious that this whole thing was a farce.

    • Kuwait says:

      xcite are well known by now to have rip off prices, and when they do their sales, it’s like the actual price for the products.

  13. Mark says:

    Here are my first impressions with the phone so far:

    – Facial ID works really well, it’s as if my phone if never locked cuz as soon as i look at the phone it unlocks

    – the screen is huge, i love it

    – I don’t miss the home button at all, i love tapping the screen to turn it on and then swiping up to unlock

    • James says:

      Mark do me a favor with an experiment because I don’t plan to upgrade my iPhone 7. Does Facial ID work if you’re wearing shades? Just curious

      • Mark says:

        Just tried it now, it worked!

        • James says:

          Now I can tell you why I asked. I miss that feature in my iPhone from the Lumia 950xl. Makes for true hands free driving when stuck at a signal and you need to send out a message. Good luck with the new interface and keep both glass surfaces safe!

  14. Crumble says:

    Loving the iPhone X. Truly wow!

    Mark, is there a sticker on the camera lens? I get the feeling that there is, but I haven’t been able to pull it off.

    Also how the hell do you turn it off! (I will probably google the answer to that now, but the first question got me no where on google)

    • Crumble says:

      Answer to the second question:

      Since Siri is now activated by pressing and holding the Side button, there’s a new way to power off the iPhone X with buttons. Just squeeze (i.e., long-press) the Side button and either Volume button together at the same time, and hold them for a few seconds. You’ll then see the “slide to power off” option appear on your screen, just like on other iPhones.

    • Burhan says:

      There is no screen or film on the cameras (front or back).

  15. Kurt Lake says:

    Mark you may want to confirm this info. I wasn’t able to find the iPhone X at Digits unless I missed something. They were closed today at Avenues mall when I went there today and it appears the iPhone X sold out in Kuwait unless you wish to sign up through Oreedoo or zain. It doesn’t appear there were many iPhone X handsets initially shipped to Kuwait for distribution to begin with.

  16. MHz says:

    A few weeks ago Xcite had it listed as pre-order for 352 KD for a 64GB and as its launched they have hiked up the prices. On apple’s site it’s for $999 (300 KD) but not sure if its US Tax excluded.

    As you guys find out about availability and share here, would be highly appreciated.

  17. MHz says:

    Mark,
    As i was posting my previous comment, my email address was not correct and it took me to the error page. I clicked back and I didn’t have to type my comment again. It was all there. Good Feature!!

  18. NG says:

    Curious to know if Apple has tweaked iOS 11 for the X or its the same crappy software running on my iPhone 7. Battery life has gone to the dogs – I am now charging my phone at least twice daily, sometimes thrice! And then the toggles for Wifi and BT that only disconnect the active connection, but dont disable the service (unlike iOS 10).

    iOS 10.3 was awesome. One full day’s charge and no such niggles.

  19. waah it was fun reading through the comments on this post lol.. I just regret that I didn’t pre-order it when it was a reasonable price 404KD, its the first time ever where pre-orders were the actual price, and after it sold out, the prices got increased! when did that ever happen ? usually pre-orders are more expensive!

    I think Pixel 2 hold me up from not pre-ordering the Iphone X but now after a lot of thinking, I can’t switch to Android yet :/. very much attached to iOS + Jailbreak, can’t just leave that!

    Do you all think, next shipment of iPhone X by Digits would keep the 404KD price tag ? or they would join the rest of the gang with the 477KD price tag ^^; ?
