APPLE IPHONE X HAS MORE PROBLEMS THAN IT SOLVES
Since the launch of iPhone X, it has been a hot pile of mess. The screen burn-ins, Face ID and now the crackling sound coming out from the front speaker of the phone.
Right from screen burn-ins and a severely imperfect Face ID followed by complaints of crackling or buzzing noises from speakers, nothing seems to be going well for iPhone X, the supposed future of smartphones. The crackling sounds come out on the affected devices while playing any audio, phone calls, videos, alarms and more.
The same issue surfaced with several iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus but Apple fixed that issue with the update 11.0.2.
WHAT’S APPLE DOING ABOUT IT?
With making the new iPhone bigger, bezel-less and beautiful, Apple has tried everything to make it appealing, but it seems that it has forgotten to do the homework on basics. Ditching the home button could look like something different and definitely bold, but such boldness can always come and bite in the rear. The FaceID and camera mode is not that perfect. It might irritate you while unlocking your phone throughout the day.
Although, the issues have been addressed and fixed. Do you really think buying an expensive phone like iPhone X is worth? With all the issues coming now and then, it is better to have low-end phones, at least you wouldn’t expect it to be great.
So far, Apple has not commented on the issue.
NO! XBOX ONE X ISN’T BETTER THAN ITS PREDECESSORS
Microsoft Xbox X is not targeted for a wide range of people.
XBOX X – A POWERFUL CONSOLE?
A high-end console with $500 price tag on it, Microsoft’s Xbox X came into the market. With the sleek and distinctive look, triple the memory of the Xbox One S console, 4K Ultra HD, high dynamic range and more, it is more like beauty combined with the beast. It is the smallest Xbox with dimensions 11.8*9.4*2.4 inches.
The games running on it looks great in 4K. If you don’t have a 4K TV, the console will use Supersampling technique to improve the clarity and color of the picture. The graphics are intense and what makes it better is the additional graphics power which allows the developers to make everything look almost real.
With all the demos surfaced, it is hoped that down the line the developers would get options to make their games enticing. The thing that could stop you from buying it, would be the price tag, as no matter what a user gets with Xbox X, $500 could be lot more.
WHO IS THIS THING FOR?
It is loud and clear, the Xbox X is not for everybody. It can not be a perfect replacement for elite PC gaming rig. You can get other options to fulfill your gaming needs at much lower prices. The product is not for a wide range market, it rather focuses on a niche market which makes it less appealing.
When compared to PlayStation 4 Pro which is $100 less than Xbox X, and also PS4 is a popular platform. The future of the new Xbox can look very fascinating. The immense energy and power used to build the platform which pushes the virtual reality experience like PlayStation Pro should pay off, but for that, we have to wait. If you buy it now, it means that the thing is going to be with you for a longer time.
