Top Features to Consider When Deciding to Buy the iPhone X

When it comes to the phone that everybody wants, you can’t go past Apple’s yearly flagship offerings. This year, the device is called the iPhone x and it brings with it a number of improvements and technologies, some of which we will discuss below.

You Can Only Just See the Bezel

Just because Apple’s marketing geniuses are spinning the iPhone X as a true bezels phone it’s important to realize that it isn’t. Does it come remarkably close? Absolutely! Is it bezel-less? Sadly, not.

In addition to the surrounding materials which actually hold the screen in place, there is a small notch at the top of the display which houses the numerous cameras and sensors required to power the phone’s numerous technologies.

Better Web Browsing

If there is one thing which the iPhone does well, it’s browsing the web. And with the introduction of iOS 11, web browsing will get even better. This means faster access to your favorite sites like news, video streaming services, and even a faster experience when browsing the Groupon Coupons page for Sperry Top Sider, all thanks to improvements in Safari’s browser kit.

No Home Button

If you are a fan of unlocking your phone by using your fingerprint or even pressing a physical button to get back to the start, then you are in for a surprise. The iPhone X completely omits any front-facing buttons and, in defiance of its Android brethren, has not even moved a button or sensor to the back.

Instead, the entire operating system is gesture driven. Need to return to the home screen? Simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

No More Touch ID

Say hello to FaceID. Given that the iPhone X doesn’t come with any front-facing buttons or fingerprint scanner, there isn’t the ability to provide TouchID. Instead, the range of sensors in the notch mentioned above includes the ability to recognize your face and unlock your phone only when you are giving it your attention.

As you can imagine, this isn’t going to to be to everybody’s liking, nor is it going to be foolproof. For that reason, the tried and true pin-code/password method is still available.

Animated Emoji

If you are one of the billions of people around the world who have embraced emoji then you are going to love this one. The feature is called Animoji and it reads your facial expressions and matches them against a 3D model of one of your favorite emoji. The records include your own voice so you can send a message to any of your friends with an animated version of yourself to plan events or catch up on news and gossip.

When it comes to buying a new phone, the more expensive the devices become, the more difficult the decision gets. If you love the idea of having the best of the best then this is absolutely the device for you. If you aren’t, then, the chances are this is still the device for you.
