Cleaner back look with less text

The back of the iPhone X looks cleaner than the last year's iPhones with just the word iPhone and Apple logo at the back and that's it, no unnecessary text.

The iPhone X looks completely different than the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Now it might seem strange to you, but many people do want their new iPhone to look different. Why you ask? because they want other people to gaze at their latest iPhone and this will make them feel great. They are the ones...

One of the most amazing design aspects of the iPhone X is its size. It might not get to you the first time you see it, but in fact, the iPhone X is significantly smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus. Now listen to this: the iPhone X comes with a 5.8-inch display and the iPhone 7 Plus features a smaller...

Very good ergonomic design

The edges of the iPhone 10 aren't sharp but folded, which feels very comfortable to hold the phone in the hands. This is especially important when using the phone for a long period of time.

Glass blends seamlessly with the metal frame

It's beautiful to see how the front glass blends with the metal frame. Something that is done really poorly in many phones is done so perfectly on the iPhone X, a great attention to fine details.

Slim phone

It's not the slimmest smartphone out there, but the iPhone X is still a very slim and elegant phone nonetheless..

IP67 water and dust protection

The iPhone X comes with splash, water and dust resistant. 6 means complete protection against contact and 7 means that the phone can be submerged up to 1m in water for up to 30 minutes without being damaged.

Stunning all-glass front and back

The all-glass front and back looks amazing. It gives the phone its unique premium and sophisticated look and feel. This is also the more durable glass use on an iPhone to-date.

Cons

Water-resistance lower than the competition

The iPhone 10 has IP67 rating, whether phones like the Galaxy Note8, Galaxy S8/S8+/S8 Active, LG G6 and others come with IP68 rating. This means they can be used in higher depth up to 1.5m compared to IPx7 which is limited to up to 1m. So lesser water protection for the iPhone X.

All-glass body is prone to break

The iPhone X is made of glass instead of metal to make the wireless charging work, but it's still glass and it more prone to break compared to aluminum. The being said, Apple did mention that it's the strongest glass on any smartphone. I'm sure some will put it to a test.

The iPhone X isn't as bezel-less as the other edge-to-edge full-screen smartphones out there. Based on the schematics that I've seen online prior of the iPhone X announcement, the bezels measure 4mm (source). Of course you now don't need that exact measurement, you can just look at the iPhone X...

One of the worst things about the iPhone X is that ugly cutout at the top of the screen. That cut out areas accumodated many of the iPhone X sensors, including the infrared camera, flood illuminator, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, speaker, microphone, front camera and dot projector. The...

Limited color options

I was expecting more cool colors, but the iPhone X, at least as of the time of writing, comes only in Space Gray and Silver colors. Hope more colors will come soon.

Camera protrude quite a bit

I don't really like the protrusion of the camera at the back, makes the back much less streamlined.

Awkward front camera and sensor placement

The front part of the screen is cutout to include the front camera and other sensors of the iPhone X, but it really make the front look really awkward..
