Great smartphone for the price

For an almost 5 year old smartphone, the iPhone X is still a pretty decent phone. The battery I hear isn’t the greatest, I can’t really say because mine is at 84% health. It has the amazing build quality and great screen quality that Apple is known for. The camera can be glitchy and when you take a picture, you still have to hold it a few more seconds or else it will take a picture of the floor. It has been starting to slow down though, but a new battery might make it a bit faster. It does lag in games and gets very hot though. It’s not a deal breaker, but something you live with, and if the game allows you to turn down the settings, than you’re in luck. Overall it’s been a pretty good phone for the past 15 months.

Pros

  • Used price
  • Screen quality

Cons

  • Battery life

Es un teléfono de gama alta, incorporando por primera vez la pantalla completa, eliminando por completo el botón home. Además de incluir la tecnología TrueTone en la pantalla y el FaceID. Es pequeño en comparación de las versiones Plus, sin embargo es más pantalla. Su rendimiento es realmente bueno, un teléfono potente. Sin embargo su baterías no ayuda, siendo de una capacidad muy reducida.

Pros

  • Potente
  • Pequeño
  • FaceID
  • Modo Retrato en Frontal

Cons

  • Batería pequeña
  • Refacciones caras
  • Materiales de cristal que se rompen con facilidad
