The smartphones all the sensors which the Iphone 7 Plus had expect the fingerprint sensor. Apple has removed the home button so it has also removed the fingerprint sensor. A new face id sensor has been added. The Face id sensor helps you to pay and unlock your device by just scanning your face. Apple claims the sensor to scan your face perfectly in a fraction of a second and even in low light conditions. If we are to have a look towards the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the sensor is not as similar as the note 8 because samsung has used IRIS Sensor whereas Apple has used Face Id Sensor. There is a major issue of data security in such a biometric lock.



Apple has also added some cool gestures to make this device attractive. These innovations make IPhone X a special and price worthy device. Some of the best gestures are listed below.

  4. Do you remember Apple has not given a home button to this device, So think about how will you open the recent apps screen ? Previously we used to double tap on the button button but now in the IPhone X you need to swipe from the bottom of the screen to open the recent apps screen.
  5. Apple has connected the emojis to the real time expressions of the users. Now the emoji’s can react as same as the users react. This amazing feature can use for video recording, messaging, social sharing, etc. Apple has named this feature as Animoji.

Apple has tried hard to make the camera of this smartphone a massive hit. Apple has added dual cameras on both front and rear cameras. In the rear dual cameras Apple has added a 12 MP wide angle lens and a telephoto lens with features like portrait mode and dual optical image stabilization which clicks clearer photos. You can capture good quality images even in low light conditions due to dual tone flash.

The device is fast charging and wireless charging enabled. Air Power is a pad for wireless charging which can be used for charging more than 3 devices at the same time.


Comparison to Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Comparison of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to Apple Iphone X, some points can be took into consideration. The processor, ram, resolution are the strong points of Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Weak points are mainly the screen size. We are not used to handle 6.3 inches of screen and hence a lot of people may not consider Samasung Galaxy Note 8 as a worthy buy. Then too we feel that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may get more number of sales than Iphone X because Iphone X lacks the most trending feature of the market which is the fingerprint sensor. You can consider Samasung Galaxy Note 8 as your next new smartphone. Some of you can also consider Iphone X if you want a smartphone which can get a WAO reaction of the faces around you.





If you live in countries other than US, then you will; feel as if you are paying a lot more in  the form of tax. For example in India we need to 1 lacs rather than 75 Thousand for the same variant. There is a trick coming up on our website very soon through you can just pay 75 thousands in Indian currency and you can get the IPhone X.
