Apple Inc., prior to their newest iPhone launch (iPhone X), has been somewhat obvious of tiptoeing the handheld’s presence to the public. Quite possibly, they were carefully defying and, plausibly, learning from the never-ending leaks of the iPhone X’s physical aspect to come up with the ultimate impression.
During the “tiptoe”, several speculations hovered over loyal consumers, tech geeks and non-Apple fanatics that the latest iPhone would be astronomically far from economical and would not reintroduce the beloved headphone jack. The former and the latter were not that difficult to guess after all as one of the most renowned multinational tech companies has proved the public correct during their official launch.
iPhones are always gnarly for Apple customers who look to get the most out of their budget. The iPhone X is no different from the previous models in terms of initial SRP. In fact, it’s the most expensive iPhone to date. What you pay is what you get. A poorly sounding but brutal cliché. But will its aloft flagship give justice to its overwhelming price?
It’s still a hand-on. However, first impressions set the tone for anticipated products.
The iPhone X, by far, is the most gorgeous-looking iPhone. Not handsome, just gorgeous. Its bezel is nearly identical to an infinity pool which equates to a larger room for display (5.8 inches, OLED) and higher resolution (2436 x 1125, 458 ppi). The screen is enriched with deeply saturated yet accurate colors which give a lifelike appearance of whatever photo is being viewed. Certainly, its display will shake other gigantic flagship smartphones.
The interesting part about the newest phone is it strays from oil. Yes, it’s oleophobic. Don’t forget it’s water, splash, and dust resistant certified with an IP67 rating.
Obviously, the iPhone X’s bread and butter is the camera. Apple has put a lot of effort in creating seamless possibilities of taking photos. The front (7MP) boasts TrueDepth which greatly coordinates all the sensors of the phone, translating images into the realest quality selfies possible. The rear camera (12MP, dual lens) has an aperture of ƒ/2.4 for capturing better shots in any lighting condition. Other features include Slow Sync Flash, quad LED True Tone flash, Hybrid IR filter, etc.
The iPhone X is already available in Australia, the US, some Asian and European countries. It will be available in the Philippines by December 1st.
