When it comes to technology, change is usually good, and progress usually means new features that people will love. Indeed, the iPhone X has a lot of great features that make it better than its predecessors—however, it doesn't come without a few potential issues. Let's take a look at both the good and the bad:
iPhone X's Biggest (Positive) Changes
As with any Apple product, there are lots of great changes that you will see with the iPhone X. Here are some of the biggest ones:
1 Bigger Screen
2 Wireless Charging
3 Better Cameras
4 Facial Recognition
It's capable of facial recognition, and infrared lasers will recognize a user's face to unlock the phone.
5 Faster RAM
6 Better Processor
A11 processor will make 20% increase in speed and more than 40% decrease in power consumption.
iPhone X's Biggest Problems
01 The Bulkiness of the Dual Cameras
Though the iPhone X was meant to be very sleek and thin, the dual cameras in the back are a bit bulky compared to the rest of its smooth design. Because of this, it rests at an awkward angle when placed flush on a table. This could cause uneven wear and tear on the outside of the phone. Buying a case may help.
Though the final price has yet to be revealed, the iPhone X will almost certainly be the most expensive iPhone ever sold. It will likely be over $1,000 USD, even for the base model, and will only go up from there for the higher storage models. Still, it's expected to make record sales.

03 No Headphone Jack, Just Like the iPhone 7
This is not really a change, since the headphone jack was missing from the iPhone 7 as well, but Apple seems to be uninterested in bringing this convenient feature back. In spite of loud complaints after getting rid of the 35mm jack on the iPhone 7, you will still have to use AirPods with the iPhone X—or, plug in a 35mm adapter into your Lightning port.
On the bright side, with the new wireless charging function, you might be able to listen to music and charge your phone at the same time again.
There are lots of great things about the iPhone X, but as with anything else, there's also a few things to complain about. Still, it's best to stay optimistic, as the iPhone has many great features that will push consumer technology to the next level.
