All about Apple iPhone X...
2017 was a great year for Apple in terms of iPhones: firstly with the 8 and 8 Plus launching, the iPhone 7 was pretty much fully updated, and the iPhone X came out (as can be seen from the different types of titling - the "X" stands for the 10th anniversary of the iPhone series)
And Apple pushes into other dimensions: The iPhone X requires a big budget - but also rewards with outstanding technology. Unfortunately, the Apple iPhone X is not available in all capacity/variants: There are only two different storage capacities (64 and 256 GB) and two colour versions (Space Grey and Silver) as of writing.
What's special about the Apple iPhone X?
Its feel and ease of use, for sure. The Apple iPhone X was for the first time since the iPhone 6 (which appeared in September 2014) a fundamentally new design missed: Now there is like the competition of Samsung and Co. an XXL display that occupies almost the entire front of the smartphone , The iPhone X has a housing made of the robust Gorilla Glass 5, the smartphone is held together by a narrow metal frame in glossy finish.
The phone is 174 grams and 7.7 millimeters thin and is just fantastic in the hand. The workmanship is extremely well done - the iPhone X is a real flatterer that you always like to pick up. The operation is, as always with Apple, very simple and above all doubt.
However, the usual home button has been removed, so that the operating concept feels a bit different - after a short settling time you have become accustomed to the novel operation but guaranteed.
The iPhone X has a fantastic display
It is impossible to talk about the iPhone X, and not to rave about the display: Here we are at least dealing with the largest display that has been installed in an iPhone so far. Whole 5.8 inches is the screen size large. The resolution is 2,436 x 1,125 pixels.
So far, Apple has always put on IPS displays, the iPhone X is now the first time an OLED display for the course. As a result, the contrasts are even higher and the black levels improved - but still everything is still very realistic.
The True Tone technology uses a sensor to adjust the image to the colour temperature of the environment, resulting in a more realistic result. Only at oblique angles, the colour scale shifts towards blue.
Integrated is a strong dual camera. The main camera on the back of the iPhone X has two lenses arranged vertically. The resolution is 12 megapixels. The quality of the captured pictures and videos is excellent, new features like the portrait mode convince all along the line. Of course, a front camera with 7 megapixels is installed.
Superfast and ready for anything
The fast processor and generous memory is great.
The integrated A11 Bionic processor does its job extremely well: The fantastic work speed is accelerated by 3 gigabytes of memory and a co-processor called "Apple Neural Engine" a lot. With 64 or 256 gigabytes of memory is really enough capacity available.
Unfortunately, the iPhone X is weakening slightly during the recharging process and can be brought to its knees in less than 10 hours.
Wireless charging is supported, as well as fast charging technology - but this requires additional investment in cables and adapters. Speaking of cable: Who still has a headphone with cable, this can no longer connect directly to the iPhone X. This works only with a (fortunately enclosed) adapter. Apple relies fully on wireless Bluetooth technology, the jack has probably goodbye forever.

Not sure which Mobile network to go for?
OneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Apple iPhone X ee contract or a Apple iPhone X Tesco Mobile contract?

After all, ordering your brand new Apple iPhone X contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.
A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signal across all major mobile networks across the UK.
So which network has the best signal?
According to Which?, In their latest research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.
EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile Networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms.

You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Apple iPhone X Contract.
Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contract is to consider purchasing a pre owned Apple iPhone X phone from the likes of Music Magpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
