Design and Display
iPhone X spots a super responsive 5.8-inch touchscreen display with super retina feature. Apple Inc did a perfect job in crafting the screen display as this is noticeable in the clear and crisp color reproduction.
It uses the true tone display that adjusts to ambient light and white balance.
The phone has a dimension of 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7mm with a screen to body ratio of 82.9%. This is great but not unsurpassed as some flagships beat it hands down in this regard.
It packs a perfect build blending glass and metal in a really superb way.
Thanks to Apple for the creative location of the speaker which produces audible sound downwards from the under part of the phone.
To add, iPhone X is dust and water resistant, therefore you’re covered when these elements “attack” your phone.

Trust Apple on camera performance!
The device packs good front and rear cameras which capture amazingly clear pictures in low light. The front 7 Megapixels TrueDepth camera reads depth details well; true to its name.
Similarly, the dual 12MP back cameras are no disappointment. The pictures produced are outstanding.
There is no much to be described here, but the few software features of the iPhone X described here are superlative.
Its improved iOS, for example, beats any other iOS hands down.
For your information, iPhone X is undoubtedly the first Apple mobile phone to adopt live photos. This affords users the opportunity of looping photos.
