10 Best Features of the Apple iPhone X

Apple has recently unveiled their latest and most powerful smartphone to date, the iPhone X. As the company’s 10th anniversary iPhone, it packs new features and more powerful specs. So for those planning to upgrade to this device, here are its best features that you can look forward to.

1. 5.8-inch Super Retina display

High-resolution displays are now common in Androids, but for long-time iPhone users who want to join in on the fun may now take solace in the iPhone X’s 5.7-inch Super Retina HDR True Tone display. It’s an OLED panel that boasts accurate colors, true blacks, 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio, 458ppi pixel density, and supports Dolby Vision and HDR10. In addition, it’s also the first iPhone to feature an All-Screen design that stretches all the way to the top and bottom of the device. So if you’re not a fan of the previous iPhones thick top and bottom bezels, this is it.

2. Glass front and back, with stainless steel frame

With a USD999 starting price, you could at least expect a premium device made from high-quality material. In the case of the iPhone X, you’re treated an all-glass front and back, and a highly polished, surgical-grade stainless steel band. So far it’s limited to Space Grey and Silver, but Apple says it went through a “seven-layer color process allows for precise color hues and opacity on the glass finish, and a reflective optical layer enhances the rich colors.

3. Water and dust resistance

Water and dust resistance are also present on the iPhone X with an IP67 rating under IEC standard 60529, meaning it is protected from dust and capable of withstanding water immersion up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. That said, you don’t have to worry about small particles getting inside and accidental splashes.

4. Face ID

Apple once again removed another feature in one of their latest devices, this time it’s the fingerprint-based Touch ID, which has been replaced with a new technology called Face ID. As the name suggests, it uses your face as a security feature. Using the TrueDepth camera system consisting of a dot projector (up to 30,000 invisible IR dots), infrared camera and flood illuminator, it can create a mathematical model of your face and uses it to unlock your device. In addition, machine learning lets Face ID adapt to physical changes in your appearance over time so it can keep recognizing your face.

5. 7MP TrueDepth front camera

The TrueDepth camera system is not just for Face ID as it also helps the 7MP front-facing camera capture better selfies using auto image stabilization and depth-of-field effect. In addition, it lets you take advantage of the new features like Portrait Lighting and Animoji.


6. Dual 12MP rear cameras

Like the iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X uses a dual camera setup consisting of two 12MP sensors with dual optical image stabilization. The wide-angle shooter features a ƒ/1.8 aperture while the telephoto has a ƒ/2.4 aperture. In addition, it can record up to 4K video at 60fps, slow-mo at 1080p at up to 240fps, and sports a Quad-LED True Tone flash with Slow Sync for uniformly lit backgrounds and foregrounds.

7. A11 Bionic chipset

Succeeding the Apple A10 Fusion chip from last year is the Apple A11 Bionic with M11 motion coprocessor that is now powering the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and of course, the iPhone X. Apple says it’s 70% faster than the A10 Fusion and boasts a 64-bit architecture with Neural engine. That kind of processing power allows the iPhone X to handle its new technologies like the TrueDepth camera system and AR applications.

8. Up to 256GB storage

The iPhone 7/7 Plus maxes out at 128GB, in the case of the iPhone X, as well as the new iPhone 8/8Plus, you can enjoy double the maximum storage at 256GB which is good if you’re going to take a lot of photos and 4K vids which you probably will. If that is too much, you can opt for the 64GB variant. Sadly, there are no 32GB and 128GB capacities.

9. Wireless charging

Apple’s iPhones have become more powerful but I don’t think we can say the same thing about their Lightning cables. Good thing the new iPhones support wireless charging with devices like the AirPower mat and other Qi wireless chargers. And yes, you’ll need to buy it separately.

10. iOS 11

Last, but not the least, is iOS 11. While the new operating system will also be available in other supported iOS devices, the experience will be a bit different on the iPhone X due to its different screen and the lack of the physical home button. Therefore you’ll do more tapping, swiping, and scrolling, and less clicking.

And that’s about it. What about you? Which feature of the iPhone X do you like the best? Let us know in the comments below.

      Actually, if your only a user then you can’t appreciate whatever apple going to offer.. On the other hand.. samsung colors is un natural (over saturated). If you love selfies, basic needs, techie or your an android guy then go for samsung. Last year I bought huawei P9 but unfortunately, android system can’t help me on my job/business. I need to download 3rd party app to view TIFF files. I’m also getting troubled transferring bluetooth files (tiff/psd) from my computer to my phone then attached it to my email. If you don’t mind the price or you need a phone to help you on your job or business then go for IOS. Apple and Blackberry system won if based on technicality and people in corporate world.
