Why buy an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus and what special features have the iPhone X, the latest iPhone models presented by Apple
The iPhone X is described by Apple as the best of its products in the last 10 years, and although every new iPhone has been described in the same way, this time there is a fund of truth.
The iPhone X, presented by Apple along with the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus, is actually an innovative smartphone, with unique features that until now had not yet been seen together in a single mobile phone.
While the iPhone 8 seems the usual evolution of the previous model, even if a little more powerful and with wireless charging, the iPhone X is the true successor of the original iPhone, with an elegant design, higher quality materials and an extraordinary power that makes it a true evolution of the smartphone,
Wanting to summarize the impressive features of the iPhone X (which is pronounced iPhone Ten or iPhone 10) we can describe it in 6 points.
Special features iPhone X
1) Powerful processor
The iPhone X is powered by the new six-core Apple A11 Bionic processor, one of the most powerful chipsets that can be found in a cell phone to date.
2) Full-screen front without central button
Unlike any other iPhone, the iPhone X is all glass, with a smooth stainless steel band that runs around the edges.
The curved front glass covers almost the entire front of the phone except for the top panel.
The iPhone X is equipped with a 5.8 inch OLD 1125 × 2436 display, which Apple proudly calls the Super Retina Display, is bright, bright, rich in color, suitable for viewing sharp and vivid images, which covers almost all the face of the camera.
There are power, suspension and volume buttons on the sides, but the screen no longer has a Home button in front of it.
3) Smart Face ID
On the iPhone X there is no Touch ID and Apple has introduced a security system based on facial recognition, the Face ID.
Unlike Touch ID, the new Face ID has fewer chances to be cracked and can only make a mistake for one in a million.
Face ID uses the infrared sensor to project over 30,000 rays onto the face of the framed person so that you can accurately recognize it by analyzing all the contours of the face.
In practice to unlock the iPhone just watch it and then touch the screen and swipe up.
4)Extraordinary dual camera mode
In keeping with the trend of 2017 and bringing the legacy of the iPhone 7 Plus forward, the iPhone X comes with a dual camera on the back, vertical instead of horizontal.
These are two 12-megapixel sensors consisting of a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens.
Both of these lenses combine to produce images with the Bokeh effect, which is the Portrait mode with a blurred background behind it.
The dual camera of the iPhone X differs from other phones because it is able to change the lighting conditions automatically according to the background and the foreground and has some special features such as Contour light, Stage light, and Studio light.
The Apple iPhone X iPhone X includes a sophisticated set of sensors to enhance the selfie shot, for face recognition and to create unprecedented lighting effects.
5) Interactive Emojis, called Animoji
Le Animoji is facets to be sent in chats that move according to our facial expression.
Basically, the emojis come alive according to how we look at the iPhone, in order to give them identical expressions to ours.
You can send the Animoji within the Messenger app on iOS 11
iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
As for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, however, the news is less than the iPhone 7 from which it takes almost all the main features.
Change the design slightly, with glass reinforcing steel for the back and the front, with aluminum on the sides, with a 4.7-inch screen on the iPhone 8 and 5.5-inch on the iPhone 8 Plus.
Both have the processor A11 Bionic, the same as iPhoneX, and 12MP camera sensors.
The Plus maintains the two-camera configuration of the 7 Plus, with a new, very interesting delayed lighting mode for photographers.
Wireless charging is definitely an interesting update, even if many smartphones have this function for years.
Who should buy the iPhone 8 or the iPhone 8 Plus?
Speaking to normal people and not to Apple fans who change phone every year and sell the previous one, my personal advice is to buy the iPhone 8 or the iPhone 8 plus if we do not already have the iPhone 7.
It is true that the iPhone 8 is a decent upgrade of the 7, with a faster processor and a softer look, but as a phone, it is absolutely similar and there are not so many differences in everyday usability.
For those who own an iPhone 6S, in my opinion, can safely stay with that.
The iPhone 6S is still one of the best smartphones out there so it’s really worth keeping it unless you already have battery problems.
Who has an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 5S could surely find a new life with the iPhone 8.
Although the iOS 11 system will also come for these smartphones, probably, especially on 5S and SE, the app will feel slower as they will be more optimized for the newer iPhone.
Who does not have an iPhone, could buy today the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, but could really find cheaper, however, buy the iPhone 7 or 6S that will fall in price substantially in the next 6 months and, above all, which can easily be found at affordable, used or refurbished prices.
Who should buy the iPhone X?
Here is the iPhone X is a phone bomb, extraordinary in its functions, which will certainly find many imitations in the months to come.
This is a smartphone that everyone will want to have, even if not everyone will be able to.
At this point, those who have no money problems will also do well to spend them on this iPhone X, but for most people, it really seems like a luxury.
