2. Innovative Design
Breaking away from the stereotypical design of the previous iPhones, the iPhone sports an innovative and beautiful new design. It’s an all glass phone with a neat stainless steel band circling the edges.
What makes the design stand out is the curved front glass, which covers almost the whole front of the phone except the top panel.
The tenth anniversary iPhone is also the first one to do away with the Touch ID and get a top-notch facial recognition system in its place.
3. Super Retina Display
Though Apple had made great strides in the field of phone security or camera. However, when it came to phone displays, Apple steadfastly held on the older display screens. And that changes with the launch of the iPhone X.
The iPhone X features a 1125×2436 OLED display, which Apple proudly calls Super Retina Display and is apt to produce pictures which are sharp and vivid.
It’s only a notch lower than the Quad HD display seen in the Galaxy S8.
4. Intelligent Face ID
As mentioned earlier, the iPhone X has done away with the Touch ID and Apple has introduced an intelligent facial recognition system aka Face ID as the new security feature.
Unlike Touch ID, the new Face ID has lesser chances of being duplicated. As touted by Apple, the Face ID can be duplicated by 1 in 1 million people.
The Face ID makes use of the Infrared sensor to project over 30,000 infrared dots on the users face. these markers are used to map the depth and different contours of your face. So every time, the Face ID is called to unlock, it will match the information from all the markers to make sure that it only unlocks the device for the right user.
In keeping with the trend of 2017 and carrying forward the legacy of the iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone X sports a dual camera setup at the back. And proving the speculations correct, the dual camera setup is vertical instead of horizontal.
Speaking of specs, it sports a pair of 12-megapixel sensors comprising of a wide angle lens and a telephoto lens. Both these lenses combine to produce images with the Bokeh effect aka the Portrait Mode. However, what sets the dual camera of the iPhone X apart from the rest are its camera modes.

The Animojis include the normal round of smileys, poop face, animals including the monkey, dog, cat, etc. And yes, all these emojis — including the poop face — can be customized with the scan of your face.
