Why Do So Many People Like The iPhone X? By Joshua Barth (Age: 12)

Updated: Sep 12, 2018

The iPhone X is a mobile cellular device. The iPhone X designed by the Apple Corporation and released to the public consumer on November 7th 2017. Many People like the iPhone X is because it is new. When the iPhone X came out of Apple so many people wanted to have one. For example, the iPhone X is a product that only has updated software like facial recognition, thumb lock.

The iPhone X has pros and cons some are when you get the iPhone X you are like this is the 1 best day of your life but then you’re like how I work this thing but when you find out how to work the iPhone X you’re like this took me too long. So, when you are done perfect now I know how to work my phone. One pro is when you get the iPhone X you could use facial recognition. One con about facial recognition is that if you are wearing something like a hood, head band of any sort or you are you are under your covers the iPhone X facial recognition will not work. A pro for the thumb lock is that the thumb lock has very high security. A con for the thumb lock is that you can only use one thumb.

Here are some reasons why people might like the iPhone X. One on is that the iPhone x has a stainless-steel water and dust resistance. One example is that water or dust will never get into your phone. Another example is that the iPhone X has no home button, all you must do is swipe up.

Starting at $999, £999 or AU$1,579 for the 64GB model, it's the most expensive iPhone ever. The 256GB iPhone X costs $1,149, £1,149 or AU$1,829. Monthly payment plans from carriers are available. Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program ranges from $49 to $56 per month, which includes AppleCare+ for the 256GB model. It costs from £56 to £64 in the UK and isn't available in Australia.

Verizon is offering up to $300 in credit to iPhone X buyers who trade in a more recent model phone.

Sprint is offering a $350 credit paid out over an 18-month lease for iPhone X buyers if you trade in a qualifying phone.

● Though AT&T isn't offering a special iPhone X promotion (yet), its trade-in program offers cash toward new devices.

T-Mobile lets you trade in a qualifying iPhone (6, 6Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, 7 and 7 Plus) for a credit of up to $300 that can be applied to your monthly bill when you order a new iPhone X.

Face ID: Unlock the phone, access Apple Pay and animate "aniemojis" with your face. (Here's how Face ID works.)

The OLED Super Retina display: The biggest screen ever on an iPhone.

A new chip: Apple's A11 Bionic processor, which also powers the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

Camera upgrade: The iPhone's most advanced set of cameras feature Portrait Lighting, which simulates studio lighting for selfies, Portrait Mode with front and back cameras and Slow Sync Flash.

Longer battery life than the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 ($538 at Amazon Marketplace), according to Apple's specs.

Apple is selling the new phone on its website, through the Apple Store app and in its retail stores, though supplies are limited and vary by region, state and country.

All this innovation comes at a price, of course, so the X also stands apart due to its cost. The introductory 64GB model costs US $999, while the 256GB model rings the register at $1149. That's $300 more than the 64GB iPhone 8 and $200 more than the 64GB iPhone 8 Plus.

Lastly, the iPhone X delivers built-in wireless charging (both iPhone 8 series phones have it, too). This means you just need to place the iPhone on a charging mat and its battery will start charging without needing cables. The X uses the widespread Qi (pronounced Chee) wireless charging standard that's already available on competitor phones. With Apple adopting this standard, it means all the main brands support it and we'll likely see further adoptions in common areas like airports, restaurants, and coffee shops. Apple's AirPower charging mat can power an iPhone, Apple Watch, and next-generation AirPods at the same time.

In conclusion, the iPhone X is just a new phone. Most people like the iPhone X because it has updated software. Yet, it is very expensive.
