A Review Of iPhone X From An iPhone 7 Plus User

Apple started to sell the most expensive and high tech phone, the iPhone X in the past days. We have heard and told a lot about this phone and it is time for listening from someone who used to have iPhone 7 Plus.

The screen is incredibly beautiful

It is obviously easier to read as if a layer is missing. The difference of the OLED screen is visible. The readability is much higher compared to iPhone 7 Plus. The colors are quite lively and the resolution is higher. Ghosting can occur when you scroll at a certain speed because the text is OLED. But, it does not bother much. Considering the benefits of being a brighter, more vibrant, integrated phone screen, I do not think this is a very big problem.

Camera does not show much improvement

I cannot say iPhone X is much better than the iPhone 7 Plus. It’s nice to have a 1080p 240fps slo-mo video. When it comes to 4k 60fps, it has been a disappointment. Probably because of it’s low bitrate, it’s certainly a low quality than expected.

Yes, the resolution is 4k, Yes it is 60fps, but in bitrate and dynamic range, I guess (I have not confirmed) chroma subsampling at 4: 2: 0. Briefly, do not get very excited when you see the 4k 60fps, as it has a format that will not be used in everyday life. Portrait mode lights of the front camera is interesting but not so special. I am sure third party developers will do better. Especially the stage lighting that darkened the backdrop was a failure when ever I tried it. I’m sure it will evolve over time, but it now deserves its beta position. If you’re shooting lots of photos and especially 4k videos, do not buy a 64GB model, definitely get a 256GB. (there is no 128 model)

 

Face ID is excellent

Face ID works perfectly and smoothly. I have not had the slightest problem. It does not only work from remote and different angles, but I can say it works 100% successfully when considering normal handset usage. Briefly: this is it. Unlike what is written on the Internet, it’s fast. The contents of the notifications do not appear when someone else reads it, it says ‘new notification’, but it turns out to be real content as you look. The light is on as long as you are looking at the screen while reading something, but if you start not to look at it, it will close the screen after a while. These little details in the background make the face ID even more beautiful.

Long story short: if you have money, get it. You will not regret.

Apple Has Something To Confess About iPhone X Screens

Burn-in and color shift issues that have been a victim of Google’s customers across the globe around the world can also be experienced on iPhone X, according to Apple’s reports.

In 2017 the world started to use OLED display. However, technology giants may have made research and development activities quite fast to put these screens into our pocket and serialize their devices. OLEDs, a new technology yet, are a potential problem when compared to other displays in long-term use. Those who live in Google’s Pixel 2 XL are the clearest proof of this.

What is the screen issue on OLEDs?

Burns on OLED screens occur when something reflected in the image leaves stains on certain areas, even if you leave the screen. For example, when you exit the messaging application and come to the main page, you can see that the texts in the messages leave some stains.

Apple seems to have taken lessons from Google’s problems and wants to soften any possible complaints about the OLED screen with “Super Retina” technology. We think it would be better if we keep moving this part from Apple’s mouth:

“With extended long-term use, OLED displays can also show slight visual changes. This is also expected behaviour and can include ‘image persistence’ or ‘burn-in’, where the display shows a faint remnant of an image even after a new image appears on the screen. This can occur in more extreme cases such as when the same high contrast image is continuously displayed for prolonged periods of time. We’ve engineered the Super Retina display to be the best in the industry in reducing the effects of OLED ‘burn-in’.”

Of course, these problems are not something the producers are expecting, but OLED screens, on the other hand, mean they are not ready for serial production. Although Apple is making this statement to anticipate potential impacts, it is natural for users to worry.

Reasons To Buy an iPhone 6S Instead Of iPhone 8 or iPhone X

iPhone 6S is one of the mobile phones the longest lived especially among Apple’s products. Apple usually offers only the previous model iPhone when it announces a new model; however, in this case something seems to change. From 6S to iPhone 8 and iPhone X, all models are now available on Apple’s official website. But, now comes up a question: Which model to buy? This time we will be more on side of iPhone 6S.

Here’s why you should consider buying the iPhone 6S instead of the iPhone 8 or iPhone X.

The price of iPhone 6S

It should go without saying that Apple’s older iPhones are going to be cheaper than its new ones.

Here’s what the new iPhones cost:

iPhone 8 with 64 GB of storage: $700.

iPhone 8 Plus with 64 GB of storage: $800.

iPhone X with 64 GB of storage: $1,000.

However, Apple is still selling the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus for significantly less than the new iPhones:

iPhone 6S with 32 GB of storage: $450.

iPhone 6S Plus with 32 GB of storage: $550.

Excellent Design

iPhone 6S has an excellent design – and you’ll find comfort in knowing that the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus look nearly identical to the new iPhone 8 models. Both the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 8 have the same size of bezels around the display and same overall shape, and their screens are the same size and same resolution.

Apple added improvements to the iPhone 8’s and iPhone X’s screens, including TrueTone, which adjusts the overall color temperature to match the lighting in your surrounding, and a wide color gamut for richer colors.

At the same time, the screen on the iPhone 6S is still excellent. The screen on that phone has the same sharpness and resolution as the new iPhone 8, and it reproduces colors just fine for browsing the web, using apps, watching videos, looking at photos, and playing games.

Is iPhone A Good Choice For You and Which iPhone To Buy?

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus finally took their place in stores. However the audience waiting for the new iPhone to change the phone is facing a serious dilemma because there is an iPhone X on the horizon and it is not far away.

Which iPhone is a good choice for you? Is the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus the classic sequel or is it iPhone X, which is introduced as the future of smart phones and offers more than a standard improvement? This dilemma is Apple’s problem as well as the new iPhone users.

How does Apple manage this dilemma?

Some of the users wait 1-2 years to replace their current iPhone with the latest iPhone version. But there is also another group of users that do not hesitate to wait for 2-3 years until the device’s battery life runs out.

Apple taught iPhone users to expect for a “new and familiar” blend of upgrades. Many people say that they will buy the familiar iPhone 8, despite what the iPhone X will offer. We will see if Apple’s iPhone X will make more than complicating the iPhone product line. But no one doubts that iPhone 8 will have a huge sales success.

iPhone X or iPhone 8

Many tech-savvy people expect the iPhone 8, but they plan to buy an iPhone X as soon as possible as many features on the iPhone 8 Plus are also available on the iPhone X despite the smaller size. If your hands are small for using the iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X is just for you.

Some of us want the iPhone X, and some of us are looking to continue on the road with the familiar and new iPhone 8. In either case, Apple is winning. That’s why Apple’s decision to announce three new phones at once will be good for Apple. It’s obvious that Apple will occupy the scene for smart phones this fall.

Tim Cook Thinks The Price For iPhone X Is Not Very High

With a price tag of $999, the iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone we have ever seen. So, how does Apple’s CEO Tim Cook interpret this high price? For the iPhone X, which is the most expensive iPhone ever produced, Tim Cook has commented on the price! According to Tim Cook, the price is quite normal.

iPhone X from Tim Cook’s Perspective

Tim Cook was the guest on ABC News in the US and answered the question via Twitter about the price of iPhone X: Isn’t the $999 iPhone X a little pricey for a lot of people? According to Tim Cook:

“Most people are now paying for phones over long periods of time. And so very few people will pay the price tag of the phone initially. Also most people actually trade in their current phone, and so that reduces the price further, and some carriers even throw in subsidies and discounts.”

Apparently, according to Tim Cook, the price of the iPhone X is not particularly expensive when it comes to specially designed campaigns and technology.

The price for the future of smartphones

In addition to the base $999 iPhone X, Apple is selling a 256GB version for $1,149. That makes the iPhone X the most expensive smartphone Apple has ever sold. As opposed to the analysis of many people, Apple obviously thinks that the iPhone X deserves the price as it is the “future” of smartphones.

Tim Cooks says, “When we look at it, the iPhone in particular has become so essential in our daily lives, people want it to do more and more, so we’ve built more and more technology in to be able to do it.”

At the end of the day, in case when the majority finds the iPhone X is overpriced, this approach will be reflected in underwhelming sales.
