iPhone X Versus iPhone 8 Plus – A Comparison of Two of the Most Popular Phones
The iPhone X is the latest smartphone from Apple. In many ways the iPhone X is a celebration of ten years of the iPhone – but this isn’t true. Instead, it’s an impressive leap forward in terms of smartphone technology. The main thing about the iPhone X is it’s a brand new design. Let’s look at some of the features and see if they meet their billing as a revolution.
Like many iPhone devices the iPhone X is capable of taking great pictures. It has the same camera as the iPhone 8 Plus, but the iPhone X’s edge is that the camera is not flush with the device. This allows for an easier grip and a higher level of photography comfort. The front face of the iPhone X is also quite thinner than the iPhone 8 Plus. This helps it fit into pockets and handbags easier.
One of the biggest upgrades from previous smartphones is the presence of Apple’s iPhone X’s new facial recognition technology. It operates by using the Focal Clear feature, where you can simply swipe up or down on the display to focus on your face. When you do so the camera will zero in on you. The iPhone X’s sensor will then recognize your eyes and determine the appropriate movement for the camera to take the picture. You can also use the fingerprint scanner on the iPhone to instantly unlock your phone.
The iPhone X is not without its quirks however. For example, the iPhone X doesn’t support Google Places. However, this is easily done by purchasing the Google app and installing it onto your phone. Once this is done you can use any local business’s social media profiles such as Facebook and LinkedIn to list your business there. This allows you to integrate all of your social networking accounts through one screen.
Another feature that was left out of the original launch of the iPhone X is face ID. This feature requires that you swipe your finger across the home button to turn it on. No more searching through your wallet for your credit card. With the iPhone you can simply wave your finger anywhere on the unit to gain access to your lock. There are several manufacturers now following suit and producing their own brand of face ID iris.
The iPhone X has many unique features that make it stand out from other smartphones. For example, it offers a facial recognition technology that allows you to login to your account without having to type in a password. This is particularly convenient if you use the smartphone for more than just checking your email. For first time users especially, this feature is a welcome improvement.
Perhaps one of the most popular upgrades offered to iPhone X compared to the iPhone 8 Plus is the ability to take high quality photographs even in low light situations. It has been said that iPhone X should replace the SLR (single lens reflex) camera, however, it has not taken long for enthusiasts of professional photography to discover the benefits of taking excellent photographs in low light. There are many new features on the iPhone including optical zoom, new dual image stabilization and Apple’s True Tone sound system which provide richer, clearer images.
In terms of photo performance, there have been mixed reviews about iPhone X’s image quality. Some experts have hailed the handset as the best smartphone camera for professionals. On the other hand, some iPhone X users say that the images they take with the camera phone are far better than what they get with the iPhone 8 Plus. It will come down to personal preference. To conclude, iPhone is an exceptional smartphone in terms of design, performance and aesthetic value.
