The new iPhone X has several features that distinguished it from the ones before it. One of the unique features is the addition of face ID authentication technology which has replaced the old fingerprint format.

What this means is that you can now unlock your iPhone with your facial expression. Apple is putting that facial recognition technology to work on a new class of emoji called “animoji,” which users can animate using facial movements.

According to Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, the facial ID has been perfected to learn over time so you don't get locked out of your phone simply because you grew a beard.

The picture quality produced by the 12-megapixel dual cameras with dual OIS and quad-LED True Tone flash is the reason why picture freaks, selfie-merchants, and maybe professional photographers should buy this phone.

In addition, that huge screen doesn’t include a home button, which Apple has replaced with bevy of sensors packed into a small cutout below the top bezel.
