When Apple unveiled it’s much awaited iPhone X back in September in the Steve jobs Theatre, the world was a bit awestruck by this leap forward in product design and innovation. This was a major leap forward for Apple as it looked radically different from any Smartphone that they introduced, and it came with a plethora of new features that would set it apart from the rest of the competition. The device saw a North American release during the initial launch and has sold in large numbers like all apple devices: So, what makes it special?

Hardware & Software:
The Apple iPhone X uses Apple’s latest A11 Bionic Chipset for processing. It is one of the fastest mobile processor available in the market and Apple did a fantastic job of extracting out every last drop of performance that the chip has to offer. The A11 Bionic has 6 Cores (4x Mistral and 2x Monsoon) in the same package.
Apple also introduced a much revamped version of the iOS 11 to make use of its button less layout. Features now include, tap to wake up, gestures to navigate, switch between and close apps. The experience is excellent courtesy of iOS 11’s optimization and the layout works like a charm and getting used to it is very easy.
- CPU: A11 Bionic
- GPU: Apple Tri-Core GPU
- Storage: 64 and 256GB across two variants, non-expandable
- RAM: 2GB
- OS: iOS 11
- Messaging: iMessage, email, MMS and push email.
- Default Browser: Safari
- Others: iCloud Service, Apple Pay, document Editor, Weather App, Audio/video player, etc.
Apple hasn’t skimped on modes of connectivity for the iPhone X and as a result it is one of the most loaded devices that you can find for the price. Sadly, Apple killed off the 3.5mm headphone jack not too long ago but it does provide a lightning to 3.5mm converter along with the box accessories.
- Network Support: 4G LTE, 3G (HSPA) and 2G (GSM)
- Wi-Fi: 11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, MiMO

- NFC Support: Apple Pay only
- Radio: No
Battery: The iPhone X comes with a 2716mAh battery that does a very respectable job of keeping the device powered on for 60-odd hours. Apple could have put a bigger battery for the device, but it would’ve messed with the proportions and make it heavier than it already is. Fortunately, its glass back supports wireless charging, which again is a first for Apple although they don’t provide a fast charger with the box.
- Rating: 2716mAh
- Other: Quick Charge support
- Type: Lithium ION (Li-ION)
- Endurance: 60 Hours
The Apple iPhone X specs aren’t without faults. It is a first generation product after all but even though, Apple did quite a respectable job with the device, the asking price tag is simply absurd considering it costs anywhere between $999~$1300 in North America depending on the model.
