This past September of 2017 was the tenth anniversary of iphone and Apple had a surprise in hand. They announced three new Iphones the iphone 8, 8 plus, and the iphone X, or ten.

   “I would buy the iPhone X because it is a very cool phone. The new features such as the camera and camera abilities will allow me to take great photos. The face recognition is so cool and I am excited to see how it works.” Dylan Ogolin 19’.   

   Apple highly emphasized the newest iphone X. Apple believes that the X will set the trend of smartphones for the next decade. It has many new features compared to the iphone 7 which was released in September of last year

   Some of the new features consist of wireless charging, face recognition, a new A11 Bionic chip, all new Super Retina display that fills the hand and dazzles the eye, and a stabilizing twelve MP camera. One of the two biggest differences from the iphone 8 and X is there is no home button, now to unlock the X your face is now your password.

    But is all this worth the steep price tag of $999? Although not many people are willing to buy the iphone X, the students who decided they didn’t want to buy it came across some interesting reasons.

   “As I am well known for dropping my phone, I think having the phone entirely glass is not a good idea, although I think the feature of wireless charging would be very convenient ” Noemi Alarcon ‘19.

   Most students don’t want to deal with an all glass phone due to large replacement fees.

     “I would not get the iphone X because it looks too much like an android and I do not like how the face recognition is being added. The new face recognition is super creepy and makes your phone more accessible to other people.” Chaye Cliff ‘18.

   Some students would empty their pockets, would you?
