When it comes to making premium quality gadgets, no one does it better than Apple. Apple devices are lifestyle defining to the core of every little bit of hardware and software used in them. The Apple iPhone X is the latest flagship and is nothing else by pure excellence. It is the company’s first bezel-less smartphone and imparts outstanding features inside out. And not to forget, the latest iOS v11 sweetens it more than you would expect.
The Display: Apple has crafted something that takes the display technology to the next level. The 5.8-inch Super Retina screen, that too, on a bezel-less display is an absolute treat to the eyes. If you used a smartphone with OLED display in the past, you will notice that the one (OLED) used in the iPhone X has well and truly risen the standard of iPhone with stunning colours and an outstanding contrast ratio of a million to one.
FaceID: Apple has removed the long-used fingerprint scanner from the Home button. In fact, you will find the Home button no more, as a new technology called faceID has replaced the security system. It uses a TrueDepth camera that analyses more than 30K invisible dots on your face and creates a precise mapping. So even if you are sporting a beardo look or are clean shaved, wear a cap or spectacles, your iPhone can now recognise you.
Impressive cameras: Apple has featured the iPhone X with impressive cameras at both the ends. The dual-camera setup at the rear, along with the one at the front come with fast lenses and OIS (optical image stabilisation) technology. The art of photography is now simplified. In addition, The new Portrait mode lets the users click impressive quality of images and enhance it with new studio quality lighting effects, even in broad daylight.
Seamless performance: The hexa-core processor is not the only feature that makes up the mechanism. The latest chipset of A11 Bionic and the 3GB of RAM contribute to offer a never-before experience while multi-tasking or gaming.
Home button: The absence of a home button may not hurt you much all throughout the day. But if you work late night and love the extra minutes of your sleep in the morning, this annoys you, big time. Getting to your Home screen was just a click away in all other iPhones, albeit the X. With the alarm running, you need to swipe on the screen twice in order to get to the Home screen to turn off the banging alarm. Imaging how much of a grogginess you would lose in the entire process, which is longer than a single click of a button.
The Apple iPhone X is a very innovative introduction from the company among its peers. An all-screen, bezel-less display and replacement of the fingerprint scanner with a FaceID infrared TrueDepth camera for security along with other impressive features make the Apple iPhone X a phone ahead of its time. However, just like any other Apple smartphone, this one is also on the expensive side.
