Apple can’t stay away from the limelight for too long. It keeps on springing some or the other surprises and in-line with that, iPhone X is the latest device from Apple that has taken the world by storm. iPhone X stand out to be the ultimate offering from Apple’s end. With its flawless design and impeccable features, it has set new benchmarks in the smartphone industry and that’s exactly we expect from Apple. The device is smart enough in every way to respond to a tap, voice and even a glance.
From its hexa-core processor to Apple’s Animoji and from OLED screen to portrait lighting, iPhone X features have truly excelled in every domain. Though Apple has incorporated many of the iPhone 8 features in its flagship phone, but by far, the major highlight of the device does remain as Face ID and TrueDepth Camera technology. Much like iPhone 5, when fingerprint sensor was introduced and was made standard by almost all of the smartphone manufacturers, iPhone X has again revolutionized the device authentication through Face ID.
The device is priced at $1000, which certainly is a handsome amount. But that doesn’t deter many people from buying it. Take a look at its facet that set it apart from its rivals.

On front and back, it holds most durable glass ever made for a smartphone and the left out portions come wrapped in a surgical-grade stainless steel. The iPhone X design is a step up from each iPhone that goes before it.
The device has a grippy texture and a smooth shape. It is offered in two colours, an appealing Silver colour, with a glossy edge and white back, and a similarly polished Space Grey model with a black back.
Super Retina Display
True Tone tech
The display utilizes new innovation to exactly take after design. The screen incorporates a high-resolution edge-to-edge Super Retina display that conveys an immersive experience more than ever.
Apple's first OLED and the HDR screen offer exceptional display even in the brightest daylight.
True Tone tech initially showed up on iPad Pro and now it got implanted in iPhone X (Also found in iPhone 8, 8 Plus).
The sensor housing on the top of the screen is known as the Notch which keeps the screen from really being edge-to-edge.
iPhone X Face ID is a protected and secure approach to authenticate your device. It is empowered by the TrueDepth camera and is easy to set up. It anticipates and examines in excess of 30,000 undetectable specks to make an exact profundity map of the user’s face.
Wide-angle and telephoto lenses
Dual optical image stabilisation
A ƒ/1.8 six-element lens, optical image stabilisation (OIS) and a larger, faster 12-megapixel sensor make the camera even better.
Both rear-facing lenses have optical image stabilisation (OIS) that produces outstanding photos and videos even in low light.
Portrait mode is an iPhone 7 feature. With an addition of Portrait Lighting, it gets even better, with sharper detail, more natural background blurring, and improved performance in low light.
The Face ID is made possible by Apple’s new TrueDepth front-facing camera system. It enables Apple’s new Animojis and other special effects that require a 3D model of the user’s face and head. The new tech analyses more than 50 different muscle movements to mirror your expressions in 16 Animoji which certainly makes it more fascinating.
iPhone X lets you shoot some exceptional videos. Apple has devised a video encoder that performs real-time image processing for optimal quality. And with HEVC compression, same video quality is maintained as before at half the file size.
Apple has powered its flagship device with the most powerful and smartest chip ever made available in a smartphone. The new chipset is capable of up to 600 billion operations per second. Wooh!!
The device holds four efficiency cores in the all?new CPU which are 70 percent faster than the older chipset(A10 Fusion). In addition to it, the two dedicated performance cores take out the device output by 25 percent.
This time also, Apple has infused certain inbuilt apps in the new device, but with a catch. The iOS 11 update let the user actually delete these apps. However, deleting the built-in apps doesn’t really free up any meaningful space on your device.
The battery of iPhone X packs 2716 mAh of juice and promises to last up to 2 hours longer than iPhone 7.
The device comes with second-generation performance controller and custom battery design that makes it last longer.
With an upgraded three?core GPU, it performs 30 percent faster and ultimately it enhances the battery life.
iPhone X doesn't require the charging cables, it can simply be wirelessly charged.

Undoubtedly, iPhone X is the best iPhone ever made, but many people may argue about the lack of new features that come packed with this device. To this, Apple may bring up a new model (iPhone X2, iPhone SE or iPhone XI) to compensate for any deficit. And who knows, the next Apple product may embrace foldable display. That sounds quite exciting.
However, if you fancy of holding the latest iPhone in your palm, this flagship device is up for you to grab. But if you rate other features like performance, camera, battery, and memory storage then there the other smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Huawei P20 Pro may interest you.
