Apple iPhone X Review

How are 10 years of development celebrated? With a phone with the right features. This is exactly what we see in the iPhone X. After several years of adhering to the same design, Apple has finally decided to meet the expectations of its millions of fans around the world. It released the anniversary iPhone X. It is a smartphone with a completely new design, as well as a new technology for biometric identification Face ID, which replaces the usual fingerprint scanner.


The iPhone X is Cupertino's first smartphone with a 5.8-inch display. It occupies almost the entire front panel of the housing. It is rounded at the corners and leaves relatively thin frames. The design of the iPhone X made it stand out among other phones on the market. Only a few of his contemporaries can boast such an advantage - Galaxy S8 / S8 + and Essential Phone.

The back of the iPhone X has received a familiar design element in the form of a vertically positioned camera unit. Otherwise, this part of the case is very different from what we know from the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The main body material of the iPhone X is glass. It covers both the front panel and the back. It is slightly rounded at the edges. The edges are made of polished surgical steel.

Overall, the design of the iPhone X deserves applause and is highly praised by experts. In real life, the device looks a little different from photos. It feels much more modern.

The dimensions of the case of iPhone X amount to 143.5x70.9x7.7 mm. The device weighs 174 grams. The new smartphone is slightly larger than the iPhone 8, but much more compact than the iPhone 8 Plus.

Protection against water and dust

The housing is protected against water and dust according to the IP67 standard. It can be immersed in fresh water for a short time to a depth of 1 meter. Taking into account the price of the device, it is recommended not to experiment unnecessarily, as the warranty does not cover the failure of the smartphone due to water getting inside it.


For the first time, the company uses an OLED display in the iPhone X. Its diagonal is 5.8 inches, the resolution is 2436 x 1125 pixels. Density - 458 pixels per inch. The ratio of the parties is 19.5: 9. This screen has been given the marketing name Super Retina HD. The contrast is standard 1,000,000: 1. The brightness is up to 625 cd / m2. Supported technology for recognizing the force of pressure - 3D Touch.

The display looks quite beautiful. Thanks to the factory calibration, its colors are closer to the natural ones. It is equipped with True Tone technology, which uses a 10-channel light sensor to adjust the white balance so that the color temperature of the display corresponds to the ambient light, thus reducing the load on the user's eyes. Unlike the iPhone 8/8 Plus, the iPhone X's screen supports Dolby Vision HDR. Some videos from YouTube and iTunes will be displayed with increased brightness for better display of contrasting scenes.

As with other OLED matrices, the iPhone X screen uses a PenTile pixel layout. Each pixel has red, blue and green subpixels. At a lower resolution, the iPhone X's display will be grainy, but at a density of 458 pixels per inch, the PenTile can only be seen by people with supersight.

The aspect ratio is 19.5: 9, which means that the screen is taller but narrower. The interface, images, and text elements of the iPhone X's 5.8-inch display look smaller than those of the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus.


Apple's anniversary smartphone is based on a hardware platform we know from the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The device is equipped with a 10-nm 6-core A11 Bionic processor (4 + 2 cores) with a 64-bit architecture running at 2.39 GHz. We also find a Neural Engine chip for machine learning, an M11 coprocessor and a 3-core graphics accelerator. A11 Bionic is one of the fastest modern processors.

In the iPhone X, the user gets another 3 GB of RAM. It is quite enough to enjoy comfortable work even in multi-task mode.

The built-in memory is 64 or 256 GB. Apple has not provided memory card support.


The most fun innovation in the iPhone X are the animated emojis or animoji, as the Cupertino-based company calls them.

They allow you to send voice messages or just facial expressions through animated emojis. They are made possible thanks to the TrueDepth system, capable of tracking the movements of 50 facial muscles and, accordingly, animating the user's facial expressions.


The two main cameras in the iPhone X are 12-megapixel and are equipped with optical stabilization. The module with a wide-angle lens has an aperture of f / 1.8, and with the telephoto - f / 2.4. We remind you that the iPhone 8 Plus has a telephoto camera without optical stabilization and an aperture of f / 2.8.

With the iPhone X, you'll take quality photos, whether you're in a well-lit place or not.

We must note the new possibilities of the portrait mode. They allow you to change the settings after you have already taken a picture.

The front camera of the iPhone X is 7-megapixel. There is nothing new in it. Thanks to the already mentioned TrueDepth system, with this camera you can take selfies with a blurred background.

Autonomous work

The battery capacity of the iPhone X is 2716 mAh - a little more than its predecessor. Given the larger display with higher resolution, the battery life is equalized. With a single charge, the iPhone X runs a little over the clock. Good, but not a record figure to date. Recharging is via the Lightning port. Apple has provided fast charging technology.


iPhone X is a flagship that is definitely expensive, but offers an extremely high level of technology and innovation. It is noticeable that Apple has worked on the appearance of the model. In addition, it has a large OLED display, an innovative FaceID system, two main cameras with optical stabilization and interesting features.
