The Apple iPhone X is a massive leap forward from anything that Apple has brought out since the inception of the iPhone more than 10 years ago. Armed with the more stable iOS 11.3, the Apple iPhone X is seemingly taking the iPhone in a whole new direction. Introducing new methods of locking and unlocking, with premium parts and an all-new experience, the iPhone X is worlds apart the old and tired design of yesteryear, and Apple seem to be doing right. It seem that the passion around the new iPhone X far outweighs the price obstacle of the most expensive flagship phone ever released by Apple to date.
Worldwide release of the iPhone X was November 3rd of last year, coming in at a price of $999 for the basic 64GB model, while the 256GB set Apple customers back around $1,149.
The Apple iPhone X’s screen is one of the hardest things to miss on this iPhone. The 5.8-inch OLED screen is leaps ahead of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, boasting better quality color reproduction, not to mention it fits the entire front of the phone. The newer, longer screen has been stretched upward, making the iPhone X screen taller rather than wider. The OLED screen makes everything just look better. Sharper whites and deeper blacks add to the depth of color display, adding a crispness that looks great from all angles. DisplayMate testing has dubbed the iPhone X’s OLED screen as ‘the best in the world’.
The TrueDepth camera does take a little chunk out of the top of the screen, and can be a little on the annoying side when watching movies. The iPhone X display initiates a new feature that further showcases the Apple iPhone X OLED screen capabilities, allowing it to play movies encoded in the HDR10 and Dolby Vision formats. This is a step up from the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, with more depth and richer colors.

Replacing Apple’s fingerprint scanning Touch ID is the Face ID form Apple. This new biometric technology far exceeded expectations, using your eyes, mouth, and nose to unlock and access your phone. This biometric technology employed by Apple is far beyond anything that has yet to been seen in the smartphone realm. The Face ID works well in the dark and low-light environments, it does however miss your face from time to time. If the iPhone X only manages to catch part of your face it may fails to unlock. Do this enough times and you are going to need a passcode to unlock your iPhone X.
The iPhone X infrared scanner is powerful enough to penetrate sunglasses, so that should not be too much of an issue. One downside of the Face ID technology is that you have to register your face to unlock the phone, as well as make use of the Apple Pay services.

The Animoji system in the Apple iPhone X is lots of fun, even though it may be more of a novelty item for now. Using the TrueDepth camera on the front of the iPhone X you can turn yourself into a cat, robot, and unicorn avatar, among others. The accuracy of the facial mapping technology perfectly replicates your mood and facial expressions, and is delightfully entertaining for the kids and adults alike. Not to worry if your friends don’t yet have their iPhone X’s, you can still send the animoji’s, they just won’t be able to send them back. Apple developers have been working on creating some cool apps for kids using the iPhone X’s front-facing camera.
It seem that Apple’s gamble on the iPhone X has paid off. The alternative design, all-screen front, additional power, and awesome features have all be put into Apple’s best iPhone ever to grace the market. It seems as though the Apple iPhone X is setting the new standard for smartphone excellence, looking forward to a more technologically and aesthetically pleasing smartphone future.
