iPhone X Review

 

First Glance

At first look at the iPhone X, you might won’t believe the transformation in the design. Smoothly edged display running down the body with no restriction from the button tab.

Holding the iPhone X in hand will surely give you an idea of the difference from the last phones. It is slim and lightweight in comparison to its massive body.

The 5.8 inch OLED display gives the phone a handsome look and makes it more attractive. The upper strip for the sensors is present in between the display screen. This is quite an unusual change from the company, but somehow users are getting on with it.

The back side of the phone is quite similar to the previous models except for the camera. The dual camera on the iPhone X is horizontal with flash in between.

Display

For the first time, an iPhone equipped with an OLED display which is the best feature to be added to our iPhone X review. The display is just said to be unreal and provides the true colors and extremely high pixel ratio.

The 5.8-inch screen displays vibrant colors for the perfect user interface. The OLED display is the prime necessity for the sharper and bright colors which will make the graphics increasingly better. This means that there will be an improvement in the colors from photos to the games. The OLED feature adds support to run the HDR movies and Dolby Vision support.

The sensor bar at the top slightly comes over the screen, but it doesn’t reduce the display size.

 

 

Software Attributes

The iPhone X will be running the latest and re-tooled iOS 11 on a Hexa Core Processor( 2 x Monsoon + 4 x Mistral). The Chipset for the machine is the Apple’s own A11 Bionic to provide compatibility with other features as well.

Face ID

The innovative Face ID is the best one amongst the newly added iPhone X features. The Face ID replaces the old Touch ID which worked by sensing the fingerprints.

We have seen Face ID on many phones before, but they don’t come any near to iPhone X’s. Many experiments were carried out to trick the phone but it is really impressive. Even the Face ID of the iPhone X can differentiate between twins easily.

The Face ID is indeed the height of smartphone security which is almost impossible to break through.
