Here are the top 5 things you need to know about the all new iPhone X:
#1 The SCREEN
It has a 5.8 inch display that fills the entire front of the phone, with rounded edges that bleed right into the bezel. It is water-resistant with surgical-grade stainless steel.
It has an ultra-tough glass which protects the front & the back from your pokes with an extra strengthening layer that Apple reckons make it the most durable glass ever slapped inside a smartphone.
#2 Welcome HDR
An eye-popping 2436 x 1125 resolution, Apple calls the iPhone X screen its first “Super Retina” display, with a pixel density of 458ppi! It also have 3D touch, True Tone, and a temperature-adjusting wizardry used to be limited to the iPad Pro, so this is a first for an iPhone.
The switch to OLED, which should make a huge difference to your photos & videos. Exquisite contrast, unbelievable black levels and vivid colors are not to be sniffed at.
#3 Animojis take over!
Animojis are basically animated emojis that react to your facial expression, so you can gurn, scowl or laugh away & have the onscreen character do the exact same thing. The accurate face tracking made it all possible!
#4 Dual cameras are back!
The iPhone X’s dual 12MP rear cameras don’t seem all that different from the iPhone 8 Plus except they’re rotated vertically.
The whole thing has been entirely redesigned. The main wide angle snapper sticks with an f/1.8 aperture, but the telephoto gets an improved f/2.4 aperture that should give it a boost when it comes to low-light shooting. Both sensors got an optical image stabilization
Finally, an improved image processor should mean faster auto focus, more realistic HDR photos, and better pixel processing.
#5 Portrait Lighting = better Selfies
Portrait mode already let you play pro photographer by blurring out background details, making your cheesy smile the focus of the shot – but the iPhone X should take an even better snap thanks to Portrait Lightning.
When you pose for a photo, the dual cameras create a real-time depth-map of you. It will recognize facial landmarks like your nose, cheekbones and forehead, letting you make a variety of lighting tweaks on the fly that would otherwise only be possible if an actual professional was in the room.
Throw in a quad-LED flash and you’ve got no excuse for a dodgy portrait ever again. The X is also the only iPhone to support Portrait mod.
