Apple iPhone X Review


The apple iPhone X is also known as iPhone 10. The “10” might have been replaced with the equivalence of 10 in roman numerals, and the equivalence is “X”.  And it has been 10 years since iPhone went into production of smartphones.

The iPhone X does not come with the regular LED-backlit IPS LCD display, instead it comes with a super AMOLED display. It didn’t also come with the aluminum frame like its former brands but it comes with a streel frame and a front and back glass as the other brands of iPhone before it.

The device is made with a new camera that has dual optical stabilization. It comes with the better chipset on the market. The front camera has a depth-detection. Its wireless charging is good.

With a Stainless steel frame edge, it has a reinforced glass at its front and its rear. The iPhone X is IP67 certified for water and dust resistance. It comes with a higher display of 5.8 inches Super AMOLED display of 1125 x 2436-pixel resolution. The RAM is 3GB with internal memory versions of 64 GB and 256GB of internal storage.

The Dual 12MP cameras on it comes with wide-angle aperture of F/1.8 and also with OIS and telephoto aperture of F/2.4 with OIS. The battery is good at 2,716mAh as it charges wirelessly and at a fast rate. It does not have a fingerprint sensor but a Face ID that works with a TrueDepth camera.

Sadly, there is not earphone jack but earpods are available. As usual, there is no provision for memory expansion using memory cards or SD cards.


If you unbox the device, make sure that the pack is freshly covered with a seal indicating that it has never been opened before you are about to open it. Just like apple has always been, you are not going to find any other newer thing in the pack if not a white three-pinned charger. You will also see a lightning cable that is also white.

You will definitely find a pair of earpods that are white. A provision for lack of an earphone jack was made and it is an analog jack adapter which you will plug to the charging port and plug the earphone into the other end of the chord that has an earphone jack. You will also find manual books and a sim card remover pin.


The iPhone X has a physical dimension of 143.6 millimeters long, 70.9 millimeters wide and 7.7 millimeter thick. The iPhone X measures more than iPhone 8 in length and width. As it weighs 174 grams, it is a confirmed information that it is heavier than iPhone 8.

The device lacks an audio jack but a wireless paired earPods are made available for that inconvenience. The device is a waterproof for itself. And guessing rightly, the water immunity made apple not to include and earphone jack to the device. But before you charge your iPhone X or any other waterproof device, make sure it is very dry so as to avoid destruction of the phone by short-circuit.

With the earpiece at the top front-side of the phone, it’s screen seems to cover the entire front section of the phone but some space was left for the earpiece and front camera with its sensors. The front side also sees a 7 MP camera just like iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The home key is no longer there because the entire front is almost covered with a bezel-less screen that is an AMOLED screen. And since there is no home key, there is no fingerprint sensor on the device, rather the security functions of the fingerprint sensor was replaced with a face ID.

The left side of the phone has the silencer key and two volume keys while the right side has the SIM slot for a Nano SIM and also a power/lock button. Apples iPhone X comes with Qi wireless charging technology.

At the bottom of the phone are paired eight rounded openings with a USB port of 2.0 placed in between them. These eight openings are microphone and speaker respectively. At the back you will see a 12-megapixel camera with a quad-LED dual tone flash beside it. This device has variant colors of Space Gray and Silver.

At the back, you will see dual camera of 12 megapixels vertically place at the left side of the rear part of the phone. The cameras have a Quad-LED dual-tone flash separating them. At the center of the rear part of the phone, you will see the apple logo magnificently place on the glass cover. At the center bottom of the rear side of the phone, you will see “iPhone” written there and ‘designed by apple’ written in tiny letters and fonts.


The device has a 5.8 inches display. This 5.8 inches’ display is an AMOLED display. And iPhone X is the first iPhone to come with such display. This display has a resolution of 1125 x 2436 pixels making it to have 485ppi pixel density. The display ration is 19.5:9, while in percentage, 82.9%.

This AMOLED screen has HDR video support and True Tone adjustments. When these true tune adjustments are turned on, it will automatically correct white balance using the ambient light sensor.

The device has a brightness of 679 nits which comes with a wider color gamut. The brightness of the display is excellent with a contrast ratio of 1300:1. The color calibration is also awesome as it produces excellent colors that we see around the environment.
