The iPhone X, (i know you pronounced “ex”)it’s pronounced ten, is the first of its kind from Apple.
This is an awesome device, that’s probably because its the most radical design of an iPhone ever, so are you among those waiting for an iPhone upgrade, well, you can now smile, but put a clause at it because that upgrade won’t come cheap(your money must speak).
Ten years after the first iPhone (ohh no wonder the name) apple is still on the battle for the top with the likes of Samsung and LG (See comparison) with this device,they are definitely in the game.
Core features of the Iphone X is an Apple device which for the first time ditched the home button and enabled with facial recognition.
Lets go straight to see what the iPhone X got to offer.
Design And Display
Design wise, Apple came stocked on this. When you pull this device from its pack be rest assured that you will be faced with a device that looks entirely different from any apple device you have seen before now.
Here we have a design with glass throughout(including the back panel) ditching the former bezel design.
According to claims by Apple, its glass features a deeper strengthening layer, making it what they boast as the “most durable glass in a smartphone” (am not so surprised though).
With respect to display, following the current trend, iPhone X features an edge to edge display of 5.8 inches. Offering an OLED display which they prefer to call a “Super Retina Display” (but still same specs).
In conclusion iPhone X offers quite a cool display bringing with it all standard benefits of the OLED which include accurate colours, uniformity across screen and better image display.
This iPhone X display supports 2046 x 1125 resolution with 455 PPI and HDR baked in(including the Dolby vision).
iPhone X features a rear camera of 12MP with dual lens, the first at f1.8 and the other at f2.4 aperture. It also features a dual- image quad-LED flash resulting to quite a sharp image at night.
The front camera of this device is powered by True depth camera of 7MP and supports FaceID.
Performance And Hardware
For internal storage, iPhone X comes in two variants, the first with 64GB internal storage and the other with storage of 256GB.
Be rest assured that you are getting same features with respect to the two variant with only changes in the internal memory.We have always known Apple to detest the idea of memory expansion with microSD, that’s not changing any time soon.
For fluid multitasking, iPhone X features 3GB RAM .

When we talk the processor language, the iPhone X speaks of the new A11 bionic processor of 64 bit design, Six cores and two processors with high performance clocking at 25 percent faster than the A10.
It also features an extra four high efficiency cores which are 70 percent faster and a GPU 30 percent faster than its predecessor iPhone 7.
On testing, the battery’s total time lasts two hours more than the iPhone 7 due to the improvements in software preformance.
The iPhone X (and other apple device released alongside it) supports wireless charging. All thanks to the glass back panel of this device giving it the QI feature which is considered standard in the wireless charging system.
We all know apple to take things overboard:
The wireless charging system comes with what apple refer to as AirPower which allows its user charge their iPhone,Airpods and Apple watch at same time.
The home button feature have always been the centre of an iPhone security, the removal of this fellows its special front sensing camera(FaceID) which unlocks this device by detecting its users face(actually the best of facial recognition technology on a smartphone).
Since apple came with the idea of no home button feature on this device, we now have a screen which covers the entire front of the iPhone, hence, You can wake up this device by either picking up the device or swiping across any part of its screen. You can also close an app by swiping up on its screen and throwing it away.
Also, users can connect Siri by saying “Hey Siri” or by pressing the side button.
