The 10th anniversary iPhone was unveiled recently with the pre-orders already taking place in full swing. The device will be available soon and here we will take a look as to whether Apple IPhone X is a practical device to own or not and is it worth your $1000.

Apple at an event in San-Francisco recently announced the newer devices in the iPhone lineup with the 'X' being the centre of attraction. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were just a minor or unnoticeable update to the predecessor i.e the iPhone 7 or the 7 Plus which came with a new SOC and glass back enabling support for wireless charging. It would have been more practical if they were announced as the iPhone 7s or the 7s Plus. 

Keeping the 8 and 8 Plus aside lets talk about the 'X'. The iPhone X comes with a 5.8 inch Super Retina AMOLED display i.e the display from Samsung. The resolution is a weird 1125x2436 which turns out to be about 458ppi. The screen is HDR10 and Dolby vision compliant and also comes with 3D touch.

The rear and front of the device is flanked by glass which in turn paves the way for Wireless charging and also finally supports fast charging. The sides of the iPhone X consist of a metallic frame which should suffice for decent blows and impacts. Overall the approximate 83% screen to body ratio along with an elongated notch which houses the camera, sensors and the face ID mapping sensors provide a unique look which can be accepted as a design change by Apple. The rear of iPhone X consists of the vertically placed camera sensors of 12MP out of which one is an optical image sensor enabling 2X zoom where the quality is not sacrificed and the details are maintained. The camera module also comes with an LED flash placed between the cameras. The front facing camera is of 7MP with f/2.2 lens. Overall the camera performance should be quite similar to the predecessor with the option for capturing portrait shots and a new feature of editing which Apple calls it as studio lighting. 

Speaking of whats powering the device, it comes with Apple's own Bionic A11 chipset with 6 cores - 2 high powered and remaining 4 low powered. The GPU used is Apple's own with 3 core graphics. This SOC is the most powerful offering from Apple and has been constantly topping the benchmarks. Well, in the performance department Apple has never failed to maintain their legacy and it comes with 64 and 256 GB storage with no option for in between and the RAM provided is 3GB. 

Now, coming to the main point i.e is the iPhone X  worth your $1000? All the devices and especially flagships come with the most secure security feature i.e the fingetprint sensor however the X does not since Apple could not figure out the way to embed it within the screen. The iPhone X comes with Face ID which with the help of sensors including 3D mapping will unlock your device by just looking at it. Well APPLE has made it clear that the Face unlocking can be fooled with an identical twin. Does the photo unlocking work?? only time will tell!! Another factor is the protruding camera module. This may not be a deal breaker for many however with the device not being the thinnest, Apple should have found a way to reduce the protruding and also the elimination of 3.5mm headphone jack for the use of bluetooth earphones and precisely Airpods is a clear indication of Apple's intention of earning only profits. Basically, the iPhone 8/8 Plus is a more practical device and worth spending for however its finally a personal choice. Overall, Apple has done a good job in finally updating their design however it seems more like an unfinished product that had to be completed in a specified time to be ready for sale.
