Apple has revealed serious flaws with the iPhone x
What’s wrong with the iPhone 9? 3 “Possible” explanations (. most likely).
In Asia, many technology companies have a superstitious attitude toward numbers. Certain numbers are considered unlucky, and this is part of the cultural history of the region. In the West, the number 13 is considered unlucky. for reasons dating back to the Middle Ages. but in Asian countries, such as China, the number 4 is considered unlikely.
Why? Well, in Chinese the number 4 is synonymous with death. This is why we did not get a OnePlus 4, for example. That’s why many buildings in China don’t have a fourth floor. But the number 9. at least as far as I know. is not considered unlucky. In fact, in China, the number 9 is considered lucky; it is believed to bring harmony and help create a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere.
Another question that is guaranteed to confront any iPhone X owner: should you wear your smartphone in a case? There are arguments for and against.
First, the iPhone X is just afraid to break. The glass gives the impression of being very durable, but the realization that its replacement will cost an amount comparable to the cost of a good Android smartphone makes you want to reinsure. In addition, the iPhone X slips heavily on the fabric surface, putting people with gloves at double risk.
Secondly, the iPhone X without a case is doomed to collect cosmetic traces of use. Not only does the marring glass leave fingerprints with every touch, but over time the steel frame collects barely noticeable micro-scratches and roughness. It has absolutely no effect on the smartphone experience, but it could affect the price of the iPhone X when sold.
Thirdly, the iPhone X is flimsy on a flat surface because of the protrusion of the camera. The case helps to get rid of this unpleasant nuance for many.
Despite the arguments, I wear my iPhone X without a case. It is so beautiful and pleasant to the touch, that you don’t want to refuse it at all.
“Closed” operating system
Android smartphones, like Windows computers, are devices with pre-installed systems, but open to enthusiasts to experiment with software. Apple technology, on the contrary, is a device on which users can perform only those operations that the manufacturer has provided.
The main problem is the inability to use iPhone as a storage device. While on Android you can load any file (like on a flash drive), for an Apple smartphone you need iTunes (or other proprietary software). And even this does not guarantee that the file can be saved. Also with Android you can connect external devices, while iOS doesn’t allow you to do so either.
The iPhone X battery is weaker than the iPhone 8 Plus
The battery of the new flagship iPhone 8 Plus lasts longer than the iPhone X. Apple gently hints about this on its website, but in real tests the hint becomes a harsh truth.
For example, the experts of Consumer Reports (USA) conducted a detailed test, in which a robotic stand performed typical operations on the smartphone screen. The result of the iPhone X was 19 hours and 30 minutes, while the iPhone 8 Plus showed a result of 21 hours.
You can’t call it a frameless screen
Unlike many other smartphones on the market, Apple is not chasing “framelessness” (albeit false), so the frame around the iPhone X screen is almost the same as on the iPhone 6s. This spoils the first impression a bit and visually reduces the screen. On the other hand, the frames still serve their primary function of minimizing accidental taps.
Face ID and the use of new cameras
As already mentioned, one of the main innovations is the appearance of new cameras: infrared and TrueDepth. Their main feature is the user’s Face ID. And it works beautifully, I must say. Often you do not even think about the fact that the smartphone must do some operation to recognize you. just take it in your hand, glance. and done. Everything happens by itself almost instantly.
Since we used the smartphone only one day, we can not say how the recognition will go in difficult conditions and with daily changes in appearance (for example, for women. with and without makeup, for men. with different lengths of stubble). However, what we were able to test was the unlocking in complete darkness. It really does.
There is one interesting nuance: in the settings you can disable the need to look to unlock. So even if your eyes are closed or your gaze is directed elsewhere, the smartphone recognizes you. In practice this is more of a hindrance, because, hypothetically, accidental triggering is possible. And of course, it lowers security. But that’s a matter of taste.
Features of the Apple iPhone X
Anniversary flagship smartphone iPhone X has a glass body with a steel frame, a 5.8-inch OLED Super Retina display with a resolution of 2436×1125 pixels, HDR and True Tone technology, and has lost the button on the front panel.
The iPhone X has a new 6-core processor A11 Bionic and graphics that are 30% faster than the previous generation of Apple smartphones. Face ID system with several sensors appeared in iPhone X. One of them illuminates the face for recognition even in total darkness, and another one simulates the face with the help of neural network technology, creating its mathematical model.

The iPhone X features a dual main camera with new vertically positioned 12 MP sensors with optical stabilization each, which the company says captures 83% more light, and a 7 MP front-facing camera. Wide-angle lens has an aperture of ƒ/1.8, ƒ/2 telephoto lens.4, there is an optical zoom and 10x digital zoom. Portrait Lightning function allows you to change the lighting of a scene in portrait mode.
Apple claims the iPhone X is the best smartphone in the history of mobile technology, thanks to its ability to shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second. iPhone X supports augmented reality for the first time, as well as the AirPower wireless charger.
- ultra-wide-angle camera;
- Really useful night shooting mode;
- a redesigned front-facing camera;
- A larger display diagonal and more correct True Tone operation;
- Slightly better autonomy;
- slightly better network reception;
- slightly faster Face ID and has a greater recognition angle;
- more powerful hardware.
It turns out that the display is the only significant disadvantage of the iPhone 11 compared to the iPhone X. If it had an OLED matrix with a higher pixel density, the device would look much more interesting and balanced. over, I think that in this case it would be just a perfect iPhone in terms of performance-price ratio. But despite the screen, I don’t regret the upgrade in the slightest, as I really enjoy taking pictures of everything on the new cameras. And to the matrix, hopefully my eyes will adapt in a week or two.
Would you trade in your iPhone X or iPhone 11? And some other iPhone from previous generations? Share your thoughts on this.
