Best Smartphone Camera- iPhone X | Camera | Full In Depth Review |

iPhone X - Camera in Depth Review

Too good or Too Bad? 

Major Throwback

I remember the first time I picked up a digital camera. It was 2009 and I got this little Sanyo VPC S-60 6.0, a good point-and-shoot, and it was 6 megapixels.

Fast forward to 2018. A lot of things change, room for improvement when it comes to point-and-shoot cameras. 

I recently upgraded my iPhone 6s Plus to iPhone X from my mobile carrier. And I used this device as my daily driver.

New Era for Digital Product- Hello 2018

The iPhone 10 which will forever be known as the iPhone X  is the most expensive and most beautiful iPhone ever made. This is Apple's Anniversary Phone, 10 years ago when the first release of the iPhone was back June 29, 2007.

Which one is better?

Camera. Which is which? Which is not?

The camera of the iPhone X is similar to the iPhone 8 Plus. It has the duo lenses but the telephoto camera is different, in that it has a 2.4f aperture as opposed to iPhone 8plus which has a 2.8f aperture. And the lenses are now optical image stabilized to improve your photos.

More Pixel, More Quality, Mobile DSLR

The 7-megapixel camera now enables portrait mode and comes with portrait lighting.  So that you can take selfies with a blurred background - that you can mimic the Boca effect of the high-end DSLR.

It comes with an optical camera on the front that uses an array of sensors to create the effect.

Boca Effect, Portrait, and Portrait Selfie- Perfect

If you're taking a selfie with more than one person,  you do need to be more careful, to make sure you're in a similar place, so that one of you can focus on the rest of the group is out of focus. But good thing, it's great for photobombers as the background will become blurred. :)

For the iPhone X- HDR or high dynamic range has already defaulted. So whatever the lighting condition is, it will automatically fix the noise picture, set the proper exposure, etc.

 Here are some of the photos that I took :

Un-edited and without a filter | Daylight Shots :

Video Quality, Resolution, and FPS are a MUST

I have uploaded a sample video recorded straight from the iPhone X without editing.
I changed the settings to the highest resolution of 4K Video with 60 frames per second.

Check the YouTube video below:

Camera settings on your iPhone X | For your reference:

The default camera settings on your iPhone X may not be suitable for all environments and therefore must be configured manually to best fit the lights and ambiance you're in.
So I took a screenshot of the following setting for your guide.

For your reference on how to's guide. You can visit the Apple's website by clicking here.

Main Menu Camera Setting

From this window, you can specify which settings should remain persistent when changed and which ones should revert back to default when you exit the Camera app. The Preserve Settings window has the following options to configure:

Camera Mode

Since the iPhone X camera can be set to different modes such as Portrait, Square, Video, etc., enabling this option ensures that the last mode remains selected the next time you launch the Camera app. This option is disabled by default which takes the camera back to Photo mode when you relaunch the app.

Filtering & Lighting

As with Camera Mode, this option is also disabled by default. When enabled, your phone remembers the last filter and lighting settings you used before closing the Camera app, and you don’t have to reconfigure them the next time you launch the camera in your iPhone X.

Live Photo

Enabled by default, this option ensures that the Live Photo mode preserves its state (On or Off) upon exit. If this option is disabled, the Live Photo mode is automatically set to On when you relaunch the Camera app.

Video Resolution

This window lets you set your preferred resolution for the videos you record with your iPhone X camera. The minimum resolution you can set your camera to is 720p HD at 30 fps (frames per second), and the maximum you can go for is 4K at 60 fps. Depending on the purpose and target audience of the video, the storage capacity of your iPhone X (64 GB or 254 GB), and the duration of the video you wish to capture, you can choose your preferred recording quality.

The Record Slo-mo

The Record Slo-mo window lets you choose the resolution for the videos you record in slow-motion. The different frame rates define how slow the videos would be recorded. You can refer to the brief guide given below to pick the correct option as per your requirements.

Most Compatible

When you select this option, the videos and photos are captured in H.264 and JPEG formats respectively. Since these are the most commonly used formats for videos and images, you don’t need any third-party or conversion tool to view the files on other devices from different platforms.

Are you using an iPhone X or other iPhone devices?
