Apple iPhone X - How NOT to notch!
Very few people will need an introduction to Apple’s iconic range of handsets, but those considering purchasing an iPhone may be unsure of where to begin. Since the original introduction of the iPhone back in 2007, the range has gone from strength to strength. Despite the popularity of the iPhone, Apple recognized that a redesign was needed after 10 years, which resulted in the release of the Apple iPhone X also pronounced as "10" instead of "X"
Specifications at a glance
The handset was first released in 2017 and offer some stern differences in contrast to earlier iterations of the iPhone. One of the most drastic changes was the omitting of the TouchID format, instead opting for face recognition. The dimensions of are 143,6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm which house a 5.8-inch screen delivering a 1125 x 2436 resolution. The screen is a Super Retina OLED capacitive touch which allows for a robust face unlock experience. With a dual 12-MP rear camera and 7MP front-facing camera which still stands strong among some of the today’s premium contenders, users can enjoy up to 21 hours talk time thanks to an impressive 2716 mAh battery which can reach a 50% capacity in 30 minutes when employing the use of fast charging. Although additional hardware is required to make use of the fast-charging capabilities, those that are constantly on the move will find this feature worthy of the investment alone.
The iPhone X is still a hot seller in 2020. Even though there are many similarities between many iterations of the iPhone, there are also a lot of differences that can affect the decision-making process. Many will find that the older phones within the Apple ecosystem can make viewing videos easy, but those that like to binge on box sets on long commutes will recognize the quality of the video being delivered by the iPhone X, which can be attributed to the HDR streaming capabilities. Regardless of the motivation for using an all screen device, the X is a reliable handset that can be used for easy communication, gaming, music and video performance at a bargain price, albeit the notch is bit of a let down considering its rival Samsung released an all screen phone the same year
Its one of the most expensive phones Apple has released to date but those looking for premium video, solid gaming, and a reliable battery will find the additional investment worthwhile.
