iPhone X Review: iPhone 5s Upgrader’s Perspective – One Month Later

I was one of the lucky people to be able to pre-order an iPhone X for launch day (3rd November 2017) and after a month’s usage, I now feel is the right time to put out my review of the iPhone X, which includes some extra details potentially not seen elsewhere on the internet.

The iPhone X is as I use it, one of the biggest if not the biggest jump since the original iPhone.

iPhone X Unboxing

Back when I got my iPhone 5s at launch in 2013 as my first smartphone, I really thought the phone was the best on the market (at the time), because of it’s 64-bit processing power, Slow-Mo video recording and the first iteration of Touch ID.

The main reason I went with the 5s as my first smartphone, besides timing of purchases and really enjoying my iPod Touch 2G, is being a small device. I liked the smaller device compared to larger phones from a single-handed use with a tight grip and pocket-ability.

Not long before the iPhone 6s/Plus came out (which was the earliest point I considered upgrading), I started to warm to the idea of going for a larger screen phone. The iPhone 6/6s/7/8/Plus all had decent upgrades in them that stack up over time, but I couldn’t seriously consider upgrading to any of them mainly due to cost until the iPhone 7/Plus, but then I knew that this phone I’m unboxing today would be out this year and that 2017’s trend for smartphones was going to be the significant reduction of bezels.

Apple Sep ’17 – Let’s Meet At Our Place – Expectations

UPDATE: Based on a lot of recent leaks in the past few days, the post has been updated to reflect the changes. Rumours that the 7s/Plus will actually be called the 8/Plus due to the change in design with the glass back and the OLED iPhone will be likely either iPhone X or iPhone Edition, of which I still prefer the later.

Apple is holding their usual September yearly event next week on the 12th at 10am local time in Cupertino.

The event this year is held for the first time at Apple’s the new campus (the spaceship one) with the Steve Jobs Theatre being used for the first time.

This theatre named after the late-CEO has a capacity of 1000 seats, which is more than 3x the size of the 300 seat Town Hall at Apple’s original campus which has recently been used to announce the iPhone 5s, iPad Air 2 and even the most recent MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

The invite itself says the following:

Top 5: Advantages of USB-C on iPhone 8

The Wall Street Journal recently made an article regarding that they believe the flagship 10th anniversary iPhone 8/X announced in September this year will have a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port.

Lightning has only been on iPhones since 2012 with the iPhone 5, so it makes sense as to why people are really annoyed with this, especially those that bought the iPhone 7 and got Lightning headphones to work with them and future iPhones.

If Apple were to replace Lightning with a USB-C connector, there would be a very good reason for doing so.
