The iPhone X – The Samsung S8 Slayer

Everyone and their nan knows who Apple are, so there’s no surprise that the world’s media had their eyes glued to what Apple was going to announce yesterday. There was a few products they released but the main focus was the phone that a lot of people already new about, the iPhone X (pronounced 10). Apple skipped the no. 9 and went straight to 10 with their Samsung S8 slayer due to it being the 10th anniversary of the iPhone.

The new iPhone fronts a 5.8 inch ‘Super Retina’ display with OLED. One big part of the iPhone X is the fact that there is no more Touch ID, so no more using your fingerprint to beep you through the barriers at King’s Cross. It has now been replaced by Face ID, something that promises to be more secure than your fingerprint, even though it did not work swimmingly when demoed at the Apple event. The all-dominating technology company has also taken a leaf out of Samsung’s book by getting rid of the home button and you will now be forced to use gestures on your phone to get back to the home screen.

Apple also brought something to the table that Apple fans have been crying for every year: better battery life. The iPhone X promises to get you a battery that will last two hours longer than the iPhone 7. The last big detail to mention about the iPhone X is that it has integrated what some Android phones have had for years, wireless charging. Apple have put their own spin on it and have called it ‘Air Power’ and they will bring out their own wireless charging pad next year.
