Twitter users had hilarious reactions to Apple’s newly-unveiled iPhone X, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus on Tuesday.

You love it, you hate it, but you really can't ignore it.

Apple launched three smartphones -- iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X -- on its 10th anniversary on Tuesday. The smartphones feature facial recognition to unlock the device, and the iPhone X has an edge-to-edge 5.8-inch "super retina" display that has improved resolution.

The much-awaited iPhone X, a redesigned product of glass and stainless steel that Apple CEO Tim Cook called "the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone", will cost 89,000 in India.

From comparisons with its rival Android to sheer surprise at the price of the new iPhone, here are some of the funniest reactions on Twitter:
