iPhone X Handsets: than why one Apparently Slower than the other?

There are big differences in processing or operating speed among different iPhone X handsets because Apple lacks uniformity in using components in all of its iPhone X handsets. Difference in speed generally depends on the modem used in iPhone X handset. Apple uses baseband modems of different suppliers (Qualcomm or Intel) inside the iPhone X. since Intel’s modem is faster than Qualcomm, this has end up in having some handsets apparently slower than others.

The Screen isn’t Bright as People Thought So

As per the specification iPhone X screen maxes to 625 nits, which is said to pretty good brightness as the industry average of 300 nits in smartphone that is considered good. But the Apple iPhones brightness is not even close to Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Recent spec test on Note 8 shows it has maximum brightness up to 1,240 nits. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the world first brightest smartphone display.

Camera Dissatisfaction for the customers

As Apple has been promoting iPhone X’s True-Depth camera system and its innovative ability to recognize face for unlock iPhone securely and also let customers to animate faces with emojis, these specifications are certainly same as the iPhone 7’s.

Severe Letter Boxing that will Kill your Mood

Many of the app have been designed to run in a 16:9 aspect ratio not 19:5:9. This can be seen most commonly with high ended graphical games. As result, running of such games in iPhone X causes large virtual bezels.

UI Overwriting that won’t Help the Apps?

The lack of home button has created many problems before in the iPhones, will this cause remain the same in the new iPhone X? Many apps are created in such a way that they assume that customers won’t be able to see anything at the bottom of the screen as they are also created for android users due to which UI’s become messy. Other app in general can’t deal with the horizontal bar, which indicated the if customer swipe up he will directly have sent to go home or the status of the phone.
