With the iPhone X, Apple made the biggest design change in the ten-year history of the iPhone. Because now the majority of the phone is occupied by the display. The iPhone X has extremely thin bezels on all sides, except for a small section on the front of the phone at the top edge. This means that the new and most expensive iPhone is completely different from the previous iPhone devices. However, we have seen this type of bezel-less design given in the phone in some Android smartphones with chin and no chin.

In this device with a smaller body than the iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has given a 5.8-inch display which is the biggest iPhone ever. When it comes to the screen-to-body ratio, Apple is now standing on the same footing with Android manufacturers in terms of smartphones coming in 2017. Not only this – the technology of Samsung and other smartphone makers has now been given to the iPhone as well.
Apple has used OLED panel for the first time in its smartphone. So that the front of the iPhone X can attract the equipped part of the display. At the launch event, Apple said that OLED technology is a technology that delivers brightness levels, wide color support and color accuracy as desired by the company. When it comes to specifications, the ‘Super Retina’ display present in the iPhone X is excellent in every respect. The display has a resolution of 1125×2436 pixels, screen density of 458 ppi, Dolby Vision, HDR10, True Tone and one million-to-one contrast ratio. In terms of performance, the iPhone X has a better display than any other smartphone we’ve tried.
For an all-display front, Apple has done away with the familiar home button and Touch ID sensor. Let us tell you that we have seen these features in the iPhone since the beginning. Its place has now been taken by Face ID in the iPhone, which is present in the sensor given in the chin given in the phone. Thanks to a dot projector, an infrared camera, and a flood illuminator, the iPhone X can create a 3D model of your face and even work in the dark. Apple says that Face ID can’t be fooled by a picture, and even showing a face mask won’t work.
However, we couldn’t check Face ID using our face while the phone was in use at the Steve Jobs Theater on Tuesday. Based on the demo seen after the event, we found that the unlock technology of the first generation is definitely slower than Touch ID, which is certainly surprising. But perhaps it would be better to compare Face ID with the face-unlock feature from other smartphone makers and Face ID seems to have won the test. Regarding the iPhone X, we will give a final verdict after a detailed process in our review.
A fun new feature of the iPhone X is the TrueDepth camera system that lets you create Animojis. With this feature, you can send in emoji messages that have your face and voice. Also it will be interesting to see if the Animoji can be used again or not. Apart from this, there are other software features which are different in iPhone X. For example, with the Home button, you have to swipe up from the bottom edge. Whereas, for multi-tasking view, you have to swipe up and hold for a while and swiping from the right side towards the bottom of the chin will open the Control Center.
As expected, the iPhone X comes with a slew of new improvements. It has a better camera on the rear with a quad-LED True Tone flash. The phone has features like the fastest ever A11 Bionic processor, stereo speakers, water and dust resistance and wireless charging. We will be testing these features over the next few days. Stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for a detailed review of the iPhone X.
