We don’t write about technology all that often at Transpost.in, but when we do, it’s typically because there’s a significant impact of gadgets and technology on travel and tourism, be it a global smartphone ban or the notable travel-friendly feature loaded. Apple iPhone X (pronounced “ten”) to us seems like a perfect travel companion, which is sure to be favored highly amongst the Millennials.
The latest Apple iPhone X is the future of the smartphone, and is the most significant update to the iPhone clan. It comes with facial recognition capabilities, edge-to-edge OLED display and an aptitude for augmented reality.
Let us dig deep into some of the reasons that will make Apple iPhone X a top spot on your must-haves travel list.
Considering the fact that how many pictures a traveler clicks through his/her journey, the most-treasured gadget he/she owns is ultimately the camera. And despite some wonderful DSLRs available, for most of us, we end up using smartphones. No doubt, latest smartphones that are being launched these days take fantastic photos and record high quality videos, and comes loaded with tons of editing tools. With the launch of Apple iPhone X, smartphones get a step closer to the high-end DSLRs. The new iPhone comes with Dual 12 megapixel sensors, with/2.4 aperture on the telephoto and an f/1.8 maximum aperture on the wide-angle camera. The iPhone X has been added with dual optical image stabilization, making it easy to keep the lens steady even in low light photography.
Moreover, the latest iPhone comes with a cool selfie mode and supports a new portrait option called Portrait Lighting. It is capable of capturing 4K videos with support for high-dynamic range (HDR).
Durable and Water Resistant
Apple has made use of surgical-grade stainless steel to mold the iPhone X. It has been further added with an extra strengthening layer and offers the most durable screen to date.
And just like iPhone 7, the new phone is also water and dust resistant. This means you can just move out in the rain or run under the waterfall without worrying about damaging the handset. Of course, we are talking about light usage- not advising you to take the iPhone X in the deep down the ocean or lake to capture underwater selfies.
Convenient and Efficient
Apple’s iPhone X support wireless Qi charging, which makes it easy to charge the handset eventually by placing it on a table at cafes, airports and beyond. Moreover, it supports various global cell bands and can connect to high-speed mobile network in most countries around the world.
iPhone X has been added with Face ID, making it simple and quick to unlock the device. This in turn speeds up access to emails, schedules and maps while on the go. Also, the Face ID can be used to unlock credit card, airline apps and banking apps simply looking at the phone.
Super Retina HD Display
As a travel enthusiast, I have been traveling to places and spend hours in flight. I know a smartphone with OLED screens and Super Retina Display will come handy when streaming content on a flight.
Apple iPhone X has been embraced with thinner, lighter and more efficient OLED displays, offering better viewing angles. And with 5.8-inch, 2436 x 1125-pixel screen, it has one of the sharpest displays a frequent flyer would ask for.
The fact is that traveling around will hit the battery life of your iPhone more heavily than sitting at home. For on the go, it is estimated that iPhone X will last up to 2 hours longer than iPhone 7.
It offers up to 21 hours of talk time, and with fast charging capability, iPhone X can be charged up to 50% in 30 minutes.
With new iPhone that take advantage of advancements in technology, travelers also have an access to forthcoming swell of innovative applications and fresh ways to interact with fellow travelers.
It’s looks like an awesome product but a bit costly for indian market. Never the less a good introduction by apple.
