iPhone X Unboxing, First Impressions




It’s been about two months since Apple launched their new iPhones, including their most ambitious smartphone to date, the iPhone X. Aside from the X’s shocking new design, it comes equipped with Apple’s newest A11 Bionic Chip, dual rear cameras, Face ID, and most importantly, Animojis (among other things).

The iPhone X has a fresh look that is completely unique from any other phone Apple has released, or any phone on the market for that matter. The overall design is very sleek and fashionable, and the screen-to-body ratio is quite amazing.

It uses a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED display with a resolution of 2,436 x 1,125, or 458ppi, which is the densest iPhone screen by far. At 81.49%, it has one of the best screen-to-body ratios among all smartphones.

The screen takes up almost the entire front panel, save for a trapezoidal cut-out at the top, which houses the sensors, call speakers, and 7MP TrueDepth Camera.

On the left side, we have the mute switch and volume buttons, while the right side houses the power/lock button and SIM card tray,


Down at the bottom, we have the lightning port, as well as the loudspeaker and microphone.

The back of the iPhone X is comprised mainly of glass, and has a very pronounced camera bump for its dual 12MP sensors and Quad LED flash.

The edges curve towards the sides for a near-seamless feel, and former iPhone 4 users will find the feeling of the glass back familiar.

In the hands, it feels very nice, and at its price point, it better be. Thanks to its very slim bezels, your thumb can easily reach the top and bottom of the relatively large screen.

    The best iphone is also the most expensive, most breakable with the most expensive repair cost.

    Pag dala mo itong iphone X, para kang laging may dalang itlog sa kamay mo. bawal mahulog.

    With its current price, it should feel better, it looks nice and slick with its glass back cover, but it must be also the gripe of some buyers in my opinion, and I count myself in, because it seems so fragile from what I saw, it could not stand up to some of the drop tests.

    With its build quality, and with its price tag that is something not to be sneezed at, I would rather wait more time and reviews before I would get myself convinced to fork over for a so-so build quality piece of device, or much better wait for next release, an iphone XI.
