The launching events by a few tech companies often create a revolution for other gadget manufacturers to inspire and follow their trend.

It’s been only a few days since the launch of the iPhone X and the whole world is going gaga about the smartphone. That’s why, here in this post, we will have a look at the advantages and disadvantages of the iPhone X. And we will find out whether Apple has met our expectations this time.
iPhone X Pros and Cons
We will first have a look at the Pros of the iPhone X.
iPhone X Pros
- The latest iOS 11 on board
You will get the latest iOS 11 pre-installed on the iPhone X smartphone. The iOS 11, which is the latest version of the iOS operating system is packed with additional features such as improved Siri, ARKit, and much more. Augmented reality is going to become a reality in the iPhone X through the iOS 11 software version.
Don’t miss: iOS 11 Pros and Cons
- Wireless Charging
You will not have to worry about plugging the charger into any of the ports of iPhone X because the smartphone supports wireless charging. The device also comes with a thin sheet of graphite to protect the 3D sensor in it from the heat produced through charging.
- Home Button replaced by gestures
There is no home button in iPhone X and its absence helped the company a lot to make the screen as much wide as possible. And moreover, the new way to launch the home screen using gestures is quite interesting.
- All Glass Body
In terms of design, iPhone smartphones always get top-notch features. This time, Apple has decided to add the additional glass body on the back side as well to increase the premium look of the iPhone X.
- Face ID – Facial Recognition
The launching events of the iPhone every year are known for being a platform for showcasing the revolutionary features which would later change the lifestyle of mankind for the rest of years. This year, Apple introduced one such feature called the Face ID feature which will replace the existing Touch ID method to unlock the smartphone. And guess what, the Face ID will let you unlock the iPhone X in milliseconds.
- A bigger and better screen
The screen of the iPhone X has got bigger and much better. The full HD OLED display will take your viewing experience to a whole another level. The 5.8-inch screen sports an edge-to-edge OLED display with True Tone technology.
- A11 processor
The A11 processor will make the iPhone faster and better than ever before. It will, in fact, bring augmented reality possible for iOS devices. That being said, the developers will make use of this availability in the best way possible to deliver the AR feature in the apps.
- Water Resistant
The iPhone X is said to be water-resistant. You can immerse the phone in a 5-feet depth of water for up to 30 minutes. But would you really dip your iPhone in the water? We bet you won’t do that. Still, it is good to have this feature to know that nothing will happen to your mobile even if it falls into the water accidentally.
These are the advantages of the iPhone X. Now let us have a look at the cons of the iPhone X below.
iPhone X Cons
- Absence of IRIS sensor
There is no IRIS scanner on the latest prestigious iPhone device. This gives an edge to the competitors like Samsung over Apple because the high-end Samsung smartphones are equipped with this IRIS sensor.
- Priced higher
The iPhone devices are always priced higher and only the richer people are the ones who buy these devices the most. As usual, the price is very high for iPhone X starting from $999.
- Inadequate color options
The iPhone X will be available in Space Gray and Silver colors. The company should have given thought to add more colors. Because there could be a few who don’t like both of these available colors.
- Wireless Charging
The phone will have to be within a radius around the adapter to get it charged wirelessly. This is really an advantage, but it can also be annoying at times. Because we are expecting the iPhone to get heated during the wireless charging process. However, as mentioned above in the pros section, the graphite coating should also lower the temperature.
- Touch ID
The FaceID is going to be a trendsetter, but it has replaced the existing Touch ID feature. We are pretty sure that it is going to upset a few souls who have been habituated to unlocking their smartphones with their fingerprints. Apple could have still provided the Touch ID feature along with the FaceID recognition.
- No 3.5 MM audio headphone jack
Apple killed the 3.5 mm audio headphone jack last year. The company is still following this trend in the latest iPhone devices which were launched this year. Many interesting headphones are available with 3.5 mm support. The users will have to rely on the connectors from the company or third-party sources to enjoy the music via the headphones that come with 3.5 mm support.
- Irremovable battery
You cannot remove the battery in iPhone X. You will not come across any situation where you will have to remove the battery, but in case if you choose to do so, you must know that there won’t be anyway. We will advise you not to conduct a postmortem on a thousand-dollar gadget.
- No Split Tasking
Android introduced the concept of split tasking in Nougat last year. It is still disappointing to see this feature not included in the iOS devices even after one year which means that you cannot run two apps at once in the iPhone X smartphone.
These are the disadvantages of the iPhone X.
