The long awaited IPhone X (IPhone Ten), the future of Smartphone as I call it, is finally here having been made available for the consumers and reviewers awaiting feedback from them on the product after testing it.
When unboxing it, the first surprise is the beautiful view, physical appearance, of its 5.8 inch screen, covering the entire surface of the phone.
That’s when one would realize that the absence of the home button has had a great impact on the screen size with round corners making it more stylish. Its OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) display feature makes the screen brighter and enhances the contrast which makes it visible even in the direct sunlight.
It has multi languages capabilities, supporting many different languages. In the box, one would find the IPhone X with preinstalled iOS 11, earphones with lightning connector, USB cable, USB power adapter and a 3.5 mm headphone lightning to jack adapter.
