4. Wireless charging
Wireless charging , a feautre which is now older for Samsung flagship phone finally introduced with iphone x. Apple follows Samsung, Nokia/Lumia phones , And the LG-made Google Nexus 5 again. Apple’s uptake of wireless charging will put some real momentum behind the technology, which could energize the two standards bodies to help wireless charging achieve its full potential.
5. Face ID
the smartphone comes with Face ID that recognizes the face to unlock. According to the company, the Face ID is faster and more secure than the Touch ID. Microsoft beat everyone to unlocking the phone with some part of your face when it launched Windows Hello on the Lumia 950 and 950 XL. Samsung also came with face unlock and iris scanner earlier. So nothing revolutionary.
There is no doubt that the iPhone X will be a superb and best iPhone ever made. But Apple is no more the leader at the smartphone market. . Android flagships like the Galaxy Note 8 offer most of what the iPhone X offers and then some more at a lower cost
