Apple's 10th-anniversary special edition smartphone, iPhone X (pronounced 10), is the most advanced iPhone with radically altered (for good) design language to date. It embraces latest smartphone features like bezel-less display and energy efficient OLED-based screen. Its sophisticated front-snapper with FaceID technology is now the gold standard facial recognition- feature.
Many rival brands have already started mimicking this feature, but are not as good as Apple, when it comes to recognizing the face in low-lit environments.
iPhone X, besides offering secured biometric scanner option and Animoji feature, takes the best possible selfie images ideal for posting on social media.
Even the primary camera is of the top-notch quality; it is currently the second best in the world scoring 97 points on DxOMark Mobile ratings, just one point shy of equaling Google Pixel 2 series (98 points).
But if we consider the overall (design, performance, battery, and camera) aspects of rival flagships, iPhone X wins the race and this is exactly why it is one of the top selling phones in the world. It has to be noted that iPhone X [also iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (REVIEW)] comes with IP67 certification meaning, it can survive not only water splashes but also underwater (up to 3 feet) for close to 30 minutes, giving users the freedom to explore their camera capabilities than ever before.
Here is a list of camera apps to give your photos professional look apart from some cool editing. [Also: Top iOS Fitness Apps]
