The iPhone X is the best redesign of this popular device in years. So if you’re thinking of buying the iPhone X There are seven things you need to know before purchasing it.
1. IT HAS THE BEST SCREEN YET IN AN iPHONE
The new iPhone X is a stunning device that features a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge screen that covers almost the entire front. The clever design also means that you get a much bigger screen in a phone that’s physically smaller in your hand. This radical new look is a massive improvement over all of its predecessors.
The iPhone X also features True Tone technology which uses an advanced four-channel ambient light sensor to subtly adjust the white balance onscreen to match the colour temperature of the light around you. This means images on the display look as natural as on a printed page, reducing eye strain.
2. THERE’S NO HOME BUTTON
If you’re wondering where the Home Button is you won’t find one! Instead, this new device uses a unique front-facing True Depth camera to scan your face and unlock the device through state of the art facial recognition. Called Face ID, this new form of security will even work in extremely low light or when things about your face change – such as removing glasses.
Face ID can also be used to make secure payments via Apple Pay.
3. YOU CAN CHARGE IT WIRELESSLY
The iPhone X features a stunning new glass design which now enables it to get its battery refilled wirelessly. Wireless charging works with the established Qi ecosystem, which means there’s plenty of non-Apple accessories that are compatible. These include two new wireless charging mats that you may be able to find online or in-store.
4. THE CAMERAS ARE BETTER
The iPhone X now includes a 12MP dual camera with Portrait Lighting. Portrait Lighting uses facial land marking and depth maps to capture portraits with shadows, spotlight effects, and more.
On iPhone X, Portrait mode gets even better, with sharper detail, more natural background blurring, improved performance in low light, and access to flash when you need it. Apple is also boasting that its front-facing camera can take portrait selfies which blur the background and get clear image of user’s face.
5. ANIMOJIS ARE COOL
Another cool feature of the front-facing TrueDepth camera is the ability to send something called Animojis to your friends and family. These colourful characters, including a unicorn, robot and even a poo can mimic your exact expressions and can be sent as short video clips via Message or E-mail. Animojis are a huge amount of fun and if one of your friends has taken delivery of an iPhone X then you should expect bombardment of this cool new technology.
6. THE iPHONE X IS VERY EXPENSIVE
There’s plenty to like about the iPhone X and it’s definitely a huge upgrade over anything Apple has produced before. But all this technology does come at a price with the iPhone X the first smartphone from Apple to cost more than ever. It worth around 107,000 Rupees. Price may vary.
7. YOU SHOULD BUY A CASE
Apple has recently updated its repair webpage which includes prices for fixing the iPhone X. Anyone smashing their shiny new phone will face a bill for a new screen or if other parts of the device get damaged. Clearly, this isn’t cheap but there are a couple of simple ways to avoid these huge costs. Buy a case.
