iPhone X- New Design New Phone

Apple announced the iPhone 8 and iPhone X on the same day. iPhone X being the main sensation as it rocks a nearly bezel less display which looks amazing.

iPhone X is one of the most expensive piece of tech retailing at $999 / £999 / AU$1,579 for the basic model.

Screen

The main attractive feature is the screeen which is covers almost the front of your phone with no touch ID available. 2017 is the age of bezel less display with Samsung, Essential phone incorporating the larger display in their smartphones.

The screen is wider and fuller similar to the Samsung S8 . The screen has a upgraded resolution of 2436 x 1125 on the new Super Retina HD display. This helps for better sharpness, contrast for overall experience in browsing, app usage making us addicted to the mesmerizing screen.

There is a small area above the screen where a section of the ‘all-screen’ display was cut out to place the cameras. The camera is need for Face ID to work. But does it ruin your experience. Well it depends. There is an option is available where the screen size will exclude the whole camera part.

The screen is 18:9 so a movie in a standard format of  16:9 wont fill the screen to the edges maybe affecting your viewing experience.

Face ID

This is a new feature where you can unlock your phone recognizing your face through the camera situated on the top of the display. You can unlock your phone just by looking at it.

“Bloomberg’s claim that Apple has reduced the accuracy spec for Face ID is completely false and we expect Face ID to be the new gold standard for facial authentication.” this was dismissed in a statement to the Verge.

“Customer excitement for iPhone X and Face ID has been incredible, and we can’t wait for customers to get their hands on it starting Friday, November 3. Face ID is a powerful and secure authentication system that’s incredibly easy and intuitive to use.

“The quality and accuracy of Face ID haven’t changed. It continues to be 1 in a million probability of a random person unlocking your iPhone with Face ID.

Design

Design wise the phone looks really expensive for the price you pay. The full screen attracts a much better attention. The rear is glass and the edges are not sharp giving you a firm grip and better look. But the glass design attracts a lot of fingerprints.

Camera

The camera is upgraded with ability to take focus faster and take better low light photos and with new features. Both the cameras have optical image stabilization for better image quality. The orientation of the camera is vertical rather than horizontal.

The new feature is Augemented Reality where you can play games with Apple’s ARkit and Google’s New ARCore.

The front facing camera senses your surrounding and your face and gives you an option to transform your face into an animated emoji called Animoji.

Wireless Charging

This one is big innovation. Now you can charge your iPhone wireless. Apple supports only Qi standard. There is a wide range of cars and charging mats which support the standard. But Apple supporting both the standards would have been great

The battery life of the iPhone X has been extended, with two hours more power than the iPhone 7 from a single charge. You can even get a fast charger – 50% within 30 minutes from dead – but only with a USB-C cable.
