iPhone X vs iPhone 7 Plus

Machine learning and a 3D revolution

Smaller, but with a bigger screen, new 3D sensors and a new chip that features machine learning – Apple’s new premium model, iPhone X, represents a major advance on iPhone 7 Plus.

The first thing you’ll notice about iPhone X is its new design. It has a thinner and more flexible screen than previous models, with curved edges that blend into the smooth glass back. Apple have dropped the home button, so more of the front can be used for the screen, but there’s also a bite-sized chunk taken out of the top, to accommodate front-facing 3D sensors.

Facial recognition, fun with animojis and more

The new 3D sensors featured on iPhone X will make face recognition extremely accurate, so you can unlock your phone simply by looking into the front-facing camera. Plus, you’ll be able to create stunning selfies, and even map your own expression onto the new 3D ‘animojis’.

It’s new A11 chip is faster and more efficient than the A10 and its 4.3 billion transistors can actually learn as it gathers information, so Face ID can adapt to changes in your appearance over time.

And, as well as the new screen technology and 3D recognition, iPhone X pushes ahead with a wireless charging system that’s compatible with the QI wireless chargers already found in hotels and airports around the world – so no more searching for a free socket when you’re travelling.

With its bigger screen (5.8 inches’ vs 5.5 for iPhone 7 Plus) and revolutionary new features, iPhone X is a must-have for Apple fans.
