Another new iPhone was launched on the market. Have you heard about the Apple iPhone X yet? You probably heard a bit about it, but what is so special about this phone? Is it that different from the iPhone 8?

Apple iPhone X

As you might read recently on my blog, I have bought the new iPhone 8. Most simple reason was that the phone was cheaper than the Apple iPhone X but if my wallet would’ve let me, would I buy the new iPhone X?

I had to do some research since I’m a HUGE fan of Apple. Where this phone is all about..? What is so special?

  1. Futuristic design
    The screen itself is bigger than the iPhone 8 plus, but the phone itself is smaller. The whole front of the phone is screen, that’s why! Well, that’s new and improved! They call it a  ‘edge-to-edge’ screen. Next to that, is it a OLED screen; Organic Light Emitting Diode.  This saves the battery and show colors more deeper and powerful.
    The iPhone X is available in two colors: Space grey and Silver. Less is more right? Although I would still like to have the phone in rose gold 🙂
  2. Face ID
    You open your phone by showing your face. Only you can open the phone. The chance someone else will is 1 out of a million. Pretty extreme feature in my eyes, very modern and almost something you’d expect in a movie, but this is real now! No more home-button.
  3. Real life emoji’s
    The Face ID also turns your face into ‘real life’ selfies that act and talk like you.
  4. True dept selfies
    While taking a selfie, you can easily blur the background. I don’t like selfies that much that I need this in my phone, but I think it’s really cool. A lot of people would see this as a huge trend. The selfie is surely not out of trend yet!
  5. Augmented reality
    Place a dinosaur in your neighborhood with the camera and change the reality into the reality of your choice and wishes.
  6. Wireless
    Listen wireless to your music using the apple airpods. The iPhone X is able to use them and find them back when you lost them. Also the sound from the speakers is better.
    Next to that, is the battery of the apple iPhone X able to be charged wireless.

These were the most important new features of the iPhone X. The Face ID is the most interesting for me! I think it’s a pretty huge improvement after iPhone 8 to be honest. However the price is a bit higher, if you want to spoil yourself, the iPhone X is surely worth it. I would love to try this phone out…

What do you think about these new features?
Would this be a phone that makes your heart beat faster?

Let me know, I’m curious about your opinion!

    Ik zou hem ook wel willen, maar ik ben aan het wacht tot de 8 goedkoper wordt, want zelfs die is nu nog te duur voor mij, geduld is een schone zaak

    Omdat hij zo verschrikkelijk duur is, vond ik dit een leuke post om te lezen. Ik vroeg me inderdaad wel af wat er nou zo speciaal aan was!

    Ik heb trouwens zelf een refurbished iPhone6. Dus ik houd wel van iPhones!

    Ik zie het eerlijk gezegd niet wat de hype is. Ik vind het volle scherm eigenlijk ook niet mooi en lijkt me ook niet tegen een stootje te kunnen met al het glas!

    ik kan gewoon eigenlijk niet zo veel geld uitgeven aan één gsm. Plus als je die stuk doet is bye bye geld. Dus dan liever niet. Hij is wel mooi en al die nieuwe snufjes lijken mij wel interessant maar dan liever op een betaalbare gsm.

    Ik kan slecht Engels dus begrijp er niet zo veel van. Vind het wel een hele mooie telefoon!

    Ik ben niet speciaal fan van deze iPhone X, vooral dan van de prijs ;-). Uiteraard is het aan iedereen om zelf te bepalen wat ze aan een telefoon kunnen geven, maar ik vind dat het wat de spuigaten begint uit te lopen. Zou heel goed kunnen dat mijn volgende gsm niet langer een iPhone zal zijn.

    I love it! The face id, the design, I definitely would like to have this beautiful iPhone … in the future. Due to financial circumstances I’m not able to afford such a huge purchase. And luckily, I am the proud owner of my first and new iPhone 5S 🙂

    My daughter has been begging for it about 3 weeks now. But sorry, no. It’s crazy expensive! Perhaps when she is 18 she can buy one herself

    Ik houd de 7 nog maar even. Toch teveel boven budget, maar ik zou hem best willen hebben…….

    Klinkt zeker niet slecht – vooral die gezichtsherkenning om aan je gegevens te kunnen lijkt me zeer veilig 🙂

    My husband bought this phone for himself, though he wasn’t quick enough so he has to wait before it arrives. I want to try out the facial emojis, they looked so fun in this years WWDC 😀

    sounds like selfie-heaven to me. 😉 I’d love to get a new phone, but not sure if it will be an iPhone again.

    Thanks for listing the differences cause I actually had no idea! ? the sound of a bigger screen sounds great, but I guess I’m pretty happy with my iPhone 6 so I haven’t really considered it. If I was going to upgrade anything it’d be my Mac!

    I had a play around with it the other day. Not impressed with much apart from the camera!! That’s tempting me, a lot!

    Sounds like an amazing phone! Unfortunately, it’s to expensive for me so i guess i ll never own it!

    I am such a lover of Android that I doubt I’d never grab this phone – but I do love the picture quality of i-phones and am always jealous of the snappy pics people take with it.

    I thought about getting the 8. I have the 6s now and would like a better camera and a larger phone. I think I will get it next year. The face recognition is very cool though.
