iphone x face id - iPhone X – Full Phone Information, Tech Specs
Face ID on iPhone X introduces a revolutionary new way to securely unlock, authenticate and pay.
  • The chip design and the core task distribution shows the priorities Apple set up for the iPhones of the new generation.
  • The A11 can back up the most complicated graphic function: 3D face recognition under unfriendly conditions. The energy saving mode is a runner-up. The iPhone 8 reportedly gets an even smaller battery than the iPhone 6.
  • The iPhone X battery is smaller both in size and in capacity. The new energy efficient microarchitecture is to back up the prolonged battery life.
  • Curiously enough, there was confusion about the X pronunciation, even when the word “ten” was clearly voiced at least twenty times during the presentation. However, many preferred “eks” or even “eeks” when talking about this model.
  • At the time of its November 2017 launch, the iPhone X price tag of US$999 made this model the most expensive iPhone ever.  The prices were even higher in the world’s market due to additional local sales and import taxes.
  • This model received polarized reception due to the sensor housing “notch” at the top of the screen and the introduction of an all-new authentication method. The notch was mocked by many users on social media. However app developers responded either neutrally or positively to the changes it brought to the user experience in their apps and games. Some of the reviewers condemned it, but others acknowleded it as unusual in the first moments of use before getting accustomed to its presence.
  • Users praised iPhone X Face ID facial recognition for its simple setup. Users criticized however the smartphone for requiring direct eyes on the screen, though that option can be disabled within the system preferences.
  • Apple discontinued he iPhone X on September 12, 2018 following the announcement of the new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR devices. Note that with a shelf life of just over 10 months, the iPhone X had the shortest ever tenure as flagship device in the history of the iPhone.

  • I don’t know. I was one who fought the removal of the home button; till I got the X. Had it for 11 months and I do have issues with these phones , but I tried an 8 plus for a week or so and I’m so used to the gestures I had to go back to the new phones so I traded in for an XR. My biggest issue is not the gesture or lack of home button. That’s easy. It’s the control center and navigation menus being hard to pull down without assistive touch on. Having them only be accessed by pulling down from the very top is my issue.

  • Bug: Nemo will open 3 instances of the new-launcher action when activated in the context menu in iPhone X.
