November 3, 2017 was the most anticipated day for iPhone users.The iPhone X is Apple’s wanted iPhone because it’s the ten-year mark since the first iPhone came out back in 2007. Although the phone is long awaited around the world, there are certain points that come up when having the idea of buying the new phone.
Some people mostly bring up the idea and say oh just buy a Samsung or an Android since it’s cheaper and it still has a headphone jack. Another thing that is being brought up is the price of the phone. This phone is 999.99$ with taxes goes up to over a thousand dollars for the 64gb model. The 256gb model is worth $1,149 once again without taxes. The price may be high but is it worth it for all of the new features added in this model?
The iPhone X is mostly known for its screen which covers the whole phone except the part where the notch is. The small portion at the top that isn’t part of the screen seems to bother many users of the iPhone X. Another noticeable feature is that there is no headphone jack This means that people have to resort to using the dongle. The home button is also another feature that is gone as well and might seem to make the phone have a different feel. In addition to the visible features, the camera on the iPhone X is a larger dual 12MP sensor and this allows for deeper pixels and a new telephoto. These depth-sensing cameras allow for the pictures to have studio-quality lighting. Even though the camera is unusual because of its nontraditional vertical camera, it still has the ability to have high definition pictures and have a high depth to them.
There are controversial opinions on the iPhone because of the price once again and because there are so many different phone brands.An owner of the new iPhone X said, “One of the most noticeable things that are physically shown is that there is no more home button and how the best feature that the iPhone has is the facial recognition.” The owner also said, “The phone is worth the money if you are interested in being up to date with new technology being released and also it might not be worthy because of the more similar features you can get on another phone for a much cheaper price.” They also said that the phone is similar to the other phone released this year, the iPhone 8, and how the only different things would be the camera and that there would be no facial recognition.
