Design & Display
iPhone X shifts from the typical Apple phones. And that’s true as the phone increased the screen to body ratio.
The phone slims down the bezels while they’ve removed the home button which has featured on iPhones for a decade. Apple fits in a 5.8 OLED display screen into this device.
With that being said, Apple has replaced the aluminum frame with a glass back. It still retains the curved edges made of medical grade stainless steel.
Despite, Apple saying the glass is very durable, the glass is fragile and you can break your display and the rear as well. If you are the a bit clumsy, it’ll be better you purchase a protective case.
The X is the first iPhone device to use OLED Display. The result is a bump in richer colours and improved screen resolution. This means the phone is potentially exciting for media consumption.
On paper, this phone has the best screen resolution. Whilst the design is out of this world.
Indeed, the iPhone X has the best camera iPhone device. It’s setup with a superior f/2.4 aperture making it better than the iPhone 8 and 8 plus.

Breaking up with Imagination has seen Apple take lead as its own Graphics processing GPU developers. The result is astonishing, you’d be surprised by the crisp and the rich color display.
Coming down to software. Apple has tied its new iOS 11 to the iPhone X. The new software supports Apple payment, improved lock screen, Notification and control center have a revamped design.
What is FaceID?
The best part is that the iPhone X innovation depth sensing camera can verify between your face and a picture. It can’t be bypassed like the Samsung Note 8 sensing features can.
