It’s difficult to say, with confidence, which of the many smartphones available on the market is the absolute, all-around best. But Iphone X seems to be the best right now based on its unique features. It may also interest you to know that hip-hop superstar, Davido just got some for his crew.
The phone comes in either space gray or silver in either 64GB or 256GB models, but the real eye-catcher is the screen. From corner to corner, it measures in at 5.8 inches, while the phone itself is actually smaller than the 8 Plus (5.65 x 2.79 x 0.3 inches). How? Well, the screen runs right up to the edges erasing basically any bezels and coexisting right next to the front speaker used for making calls. They’ve also done away with the home button to allow for more space to show off the screen’s beauty. How beautiful? Well, the display is Apple’s first OLED display, which allows for true blacks and brilliant whites and it offers a resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels, giving you 458 pixels per inch. There is, of course, the requisite wide color display, 3D touch technology and everything else listed for the 8.
If you can tear your eyes away from all those specs, there’s also an impressive set of other features. For starters, Apple has found a way to truly revolutionize even the unlock phase of the phone by removing the need for a fingerprint sensor and employing face recognition. That’s right, the front-facing cam will actually recognize your face when you lift it to wake and will unlock automatically.
Beyond that, the phone gives you all that splash, water, and dust resistance, the full, blistering power of the A11 BIonic chip, a 12MP wide-angle rear cam with an additional telephoto lens (with all the features of the 8 Plus) and way too many photography tools to list here. It records video at up to 4K and up to 60 fps for cinema-quality movies and the front-facing camera (the one used for face recognition) clocks in at 7MP and also incorporates itself into a truly innovative animated emoji feature that maps your Animojis based on the facial expressions you’re showing to the camera
