Apple’s new Face ID feature is what they are touting as the future of smartphone security. Even though many have attempted a facial recognition system in the past with varying levels of success, Apple has forgone fingerprint technology and put their trust in this new technology which means it should be a very secure and efficient method of authentication.

Setting up is fairly simple and you’d want to test it in different conditions, whether it is a photograph of your face or in different lighting conditions. Theoretically, it should work in the dark just as in the light. Using this new feature will definitely be interesting whether it’s for the simple unlock or for Apple Pay.

Try Animoji’s

After Face ID, Animoji’s are one of the most hyped and desired features of the new iPhone X. Simply put, Animoji’s are animated versions of popular emoji’s found on iPhones. By using the Face ID technology the emoji’s are mirrored onto the emoji. It is possible to record their movements or simply take static images before the ability to send them to friends and family.

Use Augmented Reality apps

The iPhone X officially enters Apple’s iPhone range to the world of Augmented Reality. With its new ARKit platform and new A11 Bionic chip, the iPhone X should be an AR powerhouse. If the amazing demos during the iPhone X release are anything to go by, the AR capabilities of the smartphone are definitely something to be excited about.

Test the powerful selfie camera

The unsightly notch has many benefits even though it has been seen as one of the drawbacks to the iPhone X design. Within the notch are the new sensors and camera parts that make the iPhone X’s facial recognition, Animoji’s and camera capabilities possible. The portrait mode that was released in last years iPhone 7 Plus for the back camera can now be replicated on the front camera which gives a new aspect to the selfie game. With powerful cameras, both on the back and the front, this is definitely a neat feature to have.

Admire the screen

The iPhone X features a 5.8 inch 1125 x 2436 pixels display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Not only that but the super retina OLED display has an almost bezel-less design which helps in the general usability of the device. The screen is sharp and punchy with high brightness levels and is one of the very positive aspects of the smartphone. Using this screen will be a pleasure and one of the big things to enjoy about the device.
