Review of iphone X
Apple took a significant risk with the iPhone X, but it paid off after six months of testing.
After years of similarity, removing the home button and changing the design was a risky decision, but one that was greatly needed. The premium design, additional power, and all-screen front combine to provide the best iPhone Apple has ever produced.
It’s difficult to give something that costs this much a perfect rating, but this is the closest thing Apple has ever been to a perfect smartphone.
The iPhone X is the significant advancement that Apple’s phones required after ten years, and in 2021 it will be even better thanks to the iOS 14 upgrade and the addition of new features. The iPhone X had the most influence on Apple’s smartphone strategy, surpassing the original iPhone in 2007, and even its most recent successors haven’t significantly changed its design breakthroughs.
Apple describes it as the smartphone of the future and the realization of what it has been working toward for ten years.
The Cupertino brand took a big risk with the iPhone X, which is all about luxury components and a brand-new experience, but it paid off because every single iPhone since then has mostly maintained the design, up to the most recent iPhone 12 Pro.
For a company that was already breaking new ground by getting rid of the traditional headphone jack, losing well-known, dependable components like the Touch ID fingerprint scanner and the home button; introducing new methods of navigating and unlocking the phone; and charging significantly more for the privilege seems risky.
