Apple celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2017. On this occasion, it launched iPhone X with beautiful OLED display and curved edges. Basically, Apple followed the most trending feature of 2017, that is, the bezel-less display. 

It is, in fact, the first iPhone with an OLED display and no home button. The all glass body with surgical stainless steel edges makes it look premium and feels even better once in your hands.

Under the hood, lies the latest A11 Bionic processor along with a 3GB RAM. The memory may seem a little small but it's the most that Apple's ever put into a phone. 

It runs on the latest iOS 11, which essentially why the home button has been replaced by gestures. So, the bottom of the screen will take to the control center instead.

Apple also replaced the Touch ID with the Face ID unlock which is flawless. It also introduced Animoji which allow users to create and record the message with different facial expressions.

Despite having big display and bunch of features, the battery lasts for 2 hours longer than it does for the iPhone 7.
