Some things you need to know about iPhone X
Science & Tech / /
The new long-awaited apple's iPhone X is about to be release, at 3th of November. But it seem to be so popular that there is a complication getting one.
Even though you probably cannot wait to have in hand one of the highly anticipated iPhoneX and make it yours, it still is not as simple as it seems. Buying it on launch day is going to be extremely difficult. But as Apple claims, waking up early at the launch day, leaving your house and line up at a store would be worth its effort because the iPhone X, which is pronounced ‘iPhone 10’ whit its revolutionary new features is worth your money and extra waiting time.
Here are some arguments on whether the high price of iPhone X and the time spent waiting in lines will actually pay off.
iPhone X screen
The new iPhone X screen is an all-screen 5.8-inch OLED display, or known as 'Super Retina Display,' unlike the LCD displays used before. The edge-to-edge display, means it lacks the home button at the bottom, which is replaced with more screen space. The phone also has resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels, delivering a Quad HD+ picture.
3D Touch returns for more granular pressure-sensitive touchscreen controls, which usually amount to hidden shortcut menus within apps and on the home screen. iOS 11 has endure some corrections to fit the iPhone X display a little better.
No more home buttom
As mentioned above, you won't see the home button on the iPhone X, because Apple's all-screen design didn’t leave room for it or the fingerprint sensor, making it one of the biggest changes.
You will return to the home screen simply by flicking an open app upward from the bottom. You bypass the lock screen the same way, once you will be authenticated with a password or Face ID.
Face ID replaces Touch ID
"It's the future of how we unlock our smartphones," said Apple senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller at the company's launch event.
For unlocking, the iPhone X uses its front 7MP TrueDepth camera and its multiple sensors, including a sophisticated dot projector to map your face. It will even work in dark because of the infrared camera. And no worries during summer, it'll also work with sunglasses and can be disable in times of crisis by holding in the side button for a few seconds.
The chances that someone else will unlock your phone with touch ID is 1 in 50,000, while unlocking it using Face ID only 1 in 1,000,000.
iPhone X dual-lens camera
Apple has redesigned its cameras: You get 12MP cameras with every new 2017 iPhone.
But if you want a dual-lens camera you have to buy iPhone X or iPhone 8 Plus, and if you want optical image stabilization on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses, you'll get that with iPhone X.
Quite handy is the OIS that helps make up for hand shakiness when taking photos. With the new iPhobe X it's on the telephoto lens, enabling you take blur-free photos with 2x optical zoom.
iPhone X video recording in 4K remained as it was, but capturing a slow-motion is upgraded. Not the compromise of capturing slow-motion video at a lower resolution is past.
Apple's TrueDepth camera
Apple's iPhone X TrueDepth camera is not just usual selfie camera. Its 7MP again, but contains much more technology. It adds Portrait Mode to the selfies, meaning that your selfies can exhibit that stylish background blur.
Another thing packed into the screen cut-out at the top except for the 7MP camera is an infrared camera, flood illuminator, microphone, proximity sensor, speaker, ambient light sensor, and sophisticated face-mapping dot projector.
iPhone X battery life and fast charging
In a headline it came: it will last two hours longer than the standard-sized iPhone 7.
The battery is enough give the-all day battery life, sill depending on usage. You can easily pare down battery consumption with low-power mode to have it last even longer.
The iPhone X comes with an underpowered 5W charging adapter and a normal lightning cable– even smaller than the iPad charger.
Another new thing is that plugging in your iPhone X could be as easy as dropping it on a wireless pad, which is the idea behind the new iPhone X wireless charging feature.
