Thank God, Apple flagship phones are finally out, rumors are over and everyone in Nigeria and around the world seem to be excited about this new development.
Apple held an event on september 12, 2017 at her new spaceship campus were the iphone 8 and iphone 8 plus was unveiled alongside other spec bombs like the apple smartwatch, tv set and other accessories.
All the devices unveiled at the launch event was’nt really much of a surprise to everyone until the Iphone X finally came on board; this new device drew many attention.
The Iphone X otherwise called Iphone 10 was described by apple as the future of smartphones and was specifically launched to mark Apple’s 10th anniversary in the smartworld.
The Iphone X features a 5.8inch OLED display, an A11 bionic chip, new IOS 11, wireless charging, water resistance, an updated 12MP and 7MP selfie camera, a single simslot(nano sim), body smooth performance, non-expandable 64GB/256GB ROM among other features.
Apple IPhone X Price in Nigeria
The new Iphone X is expected to cost $999 and $1149 for the 64GB and 256GB, Click the button below to check current price in Nigeria right now.
The Iphone x is Apple’s first edge to edge display iphone in Nigeria and therefore lacks bezel at the top with no home button. Navigating around the screen is done using your finger to swipe around from the top, buttom and middle.
Swipe from the top middle for notification, swipe down from the right corner for a control center, a swipe from the bottom takes you to the home screen and a final swipe down from the middle of the home screen for search.
When you take a closer look at the vibrant 5.8inch OlED screen you will see the time displayed at the top left corner of the screen while the top right corner is occupied by the signal and battery indicator which is pretty cool at the top and fit’s in perfectly well.
The battery, signal and time indicators can also change to either black or white to contrast with the background of the screen. That is; if you are on a white app, they turn black and if you are also on a black or colored app, it turns white.
The display of the Iphone X can either occupy a full screen or rectangular format when watching videos.
Apple really did a cool job on the Iphone X design. The new glass design at the back allow for wireless charging and a bigger display at the front.
Even though the Iphone X has a 5.8inch OLED screen, the phone size is actually smaller than an Iphone plus in Nigeria.The Iphone X is surprisingly smaller than the Iphone 8 plus. The Iphone X has a light weight, slim body and an easy grip on the hand.
The front and back surface of the Iphone X are made of glass accompanied by an aluminum casing at the middle. The Iphone X is water proof with an IP 67 rating and now allows for only two colors (space gray and silver), this leaves Iphone users with just two color options which is quite disappointing.
Apple decided to retain and redesign last year 12MP and 7MP camera in the iphone 7 and 7 plus of last year. The Iphone X comes with a new updated and redesigned 12MP back and 7MP selfie camera which allow for more beautifying options.
Both cameras now allow for more customization options before taking a photo. The new customization option this time is the portrait lighting mode.
The portrait lighting mode let you transform the lighting of your prospective photo from natural light to studio light, stage light and many more.
The 7MP selfie camera which use to come with a fixed focus camera now has the portrait light mode, this make’s the Iphone X the first Iphone with this unique features.
The 7MP selfie camera also has a face mopping dot projector to mop your face even in the dark. The selfie camera can also be use to capture your facial expression on an animated emoji which imitate your facial muscular movement when chatting on Apple messaging app.
Even though Apple improved on the Iphone X battery life; it still isn’t enough for iphone users in Nigeria, this is something every iphone user wants.
The Apple Iphone X battery according to apple is expected to last two more hours longer than last year’s Iphone 7. The battery is expected to last for a whole day depending on your usage.
The Iphones X new Operating system (IOS 11) comes with a low-power mode to enable users reduce their battery consumption rate to allow for more hours of usage.
Earlier this year, apple released an ipad pro 10.5inch with incredible features except that it lacked fast charging. The absence of fast charging made many tech geeks question it’s absence.
Thank God the Apple Iphone X, Iphone 8 and Iphone 8 plus provided answers to this question by including fast-charging into their new range of Iphones, this makes the Iphone X, Iphone 8 and Iphone 8 plus the first set of iphones with fast charging capabilities in Nigeria and the world at large.
Iphone users in Nigeria can now charge for 30minutes and expect up to 50% battery level on their Iphone.
Apple finally replaced touch ID with face ID. You can now unlock your Iphone X by just looking at the screen(wow!). However, many are questioning how reliable this new form of securing your Iphone is.
Apple cliams the Face ID is one of the greatest form of securing your phone out there. I just hope this works out well in Nigeria.
Another not surprising features of the Iphone X was it’s new operating system, the IOS 11. For me, it was’nt surprising to see Apple launch a new operating system because the removal of the home button means a new software had to be developed to suite the way IOS works. And lastly, the Apple Iphone X is Augmented reality.

The Iphone X is indeed an incredible tech device with really astonishing features almost everyone wished for in an Iphone.
Even though the Iphone X met almost all the requirement a flagship phone should have, the $1000 iphone is just too expensive for iphone users in Nigeria as compared to flagship phones from other brands with similar specification.
Another thing i observed about the Iphone X is the battery life. Apple seemed to have paid very little attention to the battery life of iphones.
It is really going to be annoying to discover that the $1000 iphone you bought has low battery life and can’t even serve you for a day without recharging it.
