The internet is swarming with reviews on the iPhone X. How much of a difference does a “notch” at the top of the screen make? How secure is the Face ID? Most of all, how would you carry on without a hardy home button?
If innovation calls for the annihilation of the home button, so be it. And replacing the fingerprint scanner with facial recognition? Genius. It is a technological revolution that works.
The price tag is a bit of a deal breaker, but if you get it through a postpaid contract, you’ll find that it’s rather worth the money.
I get so much out of the iPhone that I’m using now. I use it to do things and download applications for every function there is. If you ask me, it’s a small price to pay to get a better experience from a device I rely on so greatly.
What I Like About The iPhone X
All the changes inherent in the iPhone X are practical. Aside from the cute and perhaps slightly gimmicky animated emojis, everything else was made to be more seamless than the last model.
Navigation without the home button was a little alien at first, but it was something I got over quickly and began to enjoy. I still don’t really understand why they moved the command centre to the top right of the screen but that’s okay, I don’t really mind it.
Then there’s Face ID. It sounded awkward until I finally tried it. The iPhone X recognises me from nearly any angle and light setting. Moreover, I just love the fact that it keeps the contents of my notifications hidden until I literally look at it.
The hefty price tag can also be attributed to faster touchscreen movement, causing the finger tracking activities to feel smoother and more responsive. Now that the home button is no longer at play, switching between apps is also easier as you simply swipe your finger left or right at the bottom of the screen.
If you are like me, paying a little more for the iPhone X is a no-brainer. I took up the postpaid plan with Digi to get mine, so check them out at https://new.digi.com.my/ to find the plan that works best for you!
