2. iPhone X review
Even though the iPhone X isn’t going to be shipped until late autumn, the first lucky reviewers have already gotten their hands on the new device. Here is what most of them have to say.
The first thing that needs to be said about the iPhone X is that it’s the most groundbreaking and thrilling device Apple presented in the decade since unveiling the original iPhone. At the same time, it needs to be said that there are more technologically advanced phones in the market today, but none of them are as well designed as the iPhone X.
Perhaps, the most surprising thing you’ll realize upon holding your iPhone for the first time is how big its screen is. The 5.8-inch body of the device almost exclusively consists of the screen, which means you’ll get a one-of-a-kind viewing and user experience.
Visually, the upgraded iPhone is breathtakingly beautiful, and that includes both the screen and the glass body. A larger frame might take some time getting used to, but if you’ve owned one of the iPhone Plus models, you’ll instantly get the hang of it.
The iPhone X comes with the latest iOS 11 on board. The newest version of Apple’s OS is designed specifically with the iPhone X in mind, and all of the new features, from facial recognition to the lack a of home button, will be available to you.
