iPhone X: Everything You Need to Know About Apple’s Most Interesting Phone in Years
It’s official. Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone is finally here and it’s called the iPhone X. The phone’s bezels have been basically eliminated, and its screen is bigger. And returning to a design element from years past, the new phone has a glass back, something we haven’t seen since the iPhone 4s.
The iPhone X will be available in space gray and silver, and like last year’s models, it’s both dust and water resistant.
For those of you who don’t often take a look outside of Cupertino’s walled garden, the iPhone X not only improves on previous iPhones, it also closes the gap even further between Apple’s phones and flagship Android devices thanks to new features such as wireless charging, facial recognition, and a stunning OLED display.
Sporting an OLED panel instead of an LCD like on previous Apple handsets, the iPhone X’s Super Retina Display is not only more colorful than before, it also has more contrast and has a 2436 x 1125 resolution that’s higher than any iPhone before it. The most striking facet, however, is the iPhone X’s slim bezel-less design, which lets Apple pack a high-res 5.8-inch display into a body that’s smaller and more compact than the 5.5-inch iPhone 8.
Around the outside of the screen on what’s left of the tiny bezels that Apple couldn’t eliminate, are tiny black borders that appear to help blur where the screen ends and the rest of the phone begins. Some iPhone loyalists make take exception to the tiny cutout at the top of the screen where it bends around the X’s earpiece, but I think it’s a refreshing new design direction that simply lets the iPhone get the most out of its displa real estate.
well, it’s the day after apple’s big iphone X event and i figure everyone around here is fully clued in to this new iPhone X… sure, there were a lot of other things they talked about yesterday that was interesting, but let’s be honest — it was this new iPhone that everybody was waiting to see / hear more about… i’m still kinda stuck on the starting $999 pricetag, and wondering if i should pony up and pay the difference or what… though i’m not sure how much that’s gonna be, but i should be eligible since i’m on the AT&T Next program… guess i’ll just have to call or go to my local AT&T store and ask.
that’s another thing, pre-orders don’t start until october 27th?! what the hell?
ugh, whatever… so what do you guys think?
