Planning to buy the latest Apple iPhone X? Beware of these risks

Apple's latest iPhone X since its launch is facing one issue after another.

Back in 2015, Apple had a nightmarish time when iPhone 6 bendgate came to the fore. Now it seems that the history is just about to repeat itself.

Apple’s latest iPhone X since its launch is facing one issue after another. iPhone X, which happens to be Apple’s costliest phone yet, is priced at Rs 89,000 for the 64GB variant and a whopping Rs 1,02,000 for the 256GB variant. The phone has top end features including a bezel-less display of 5.8-inch. The Super Retina Display is made out of OLED screen. The screen comes with a resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels and has a pixel density of 458ppi. The latest iPhone sports a glass back and is strengthened with stainless steel frame. The display also supports HDR 10 as well.

Moving on, the iPhone X sports a new TrueDepth Camera, which the company claims is used to map user’s face and unlock it using FaceID. The new iPhone X is powered by the latest A11 Bionic chip with a neural engine, which the company helps improve machine learning algorithm. The neural engine comes with a dual-core processor. Apple says FaceID is safer as compared to the TouchID.

The iPhone X was recently launched in India. So if you want to buy this latest handset, beware of these problems that many users have reported so far.

The Green Line

Many users have reported apperance of a green line. As reported, the green line comes while using various social media apps like Facebook and Twitter.

Even after restrating the green line does not go away. While some said that the green line comes in the left hand side, few others said that in their phone the green line somes on the right hand side.

GPS issues

According to Apple Insider, a number of users have complained on Apple Community forum about GPS issues. The users have said that they are facing difficulties with GPS accuracy.

Users afflicted by the problem note that the location drifts away from where the user is, with the problem aggravated by high rates of speed like a car on a highway. The traditional problem-solving steps of toggling location services on and off don’t seem to work, nor does a fresh software install, Apple Insider reported.

However, the good news is that a fix for the same is most likely to come in iOS 11.2 update.

Screen Burn in issue

Remember the old CRT television days. In those TVs, sometimes images appear in the screen even after the TV was shut down.

The iPhone X reportedly suffering from the same issue. As per Mac World, users have reported screen burn in issue in which “if a static image is displayed for a long time it burns into the screen and you’re left with a faint but persistent after-image that you can’t remove.”

However, Apple while acknowleding the issue, insisted that it is a problem with OLED screens.

Cold problems

Apple has also confirmed that some iPhone X may become unresponsive in cold weather. Reddit user YamadaPuckah first reported about the problem. He said that he has been experiencing the problem in the -2 to 5 degrees Celsius temperature there.

Another Reddit users said that they experienced the problem after stepping outside in normal weather conditions so it might not just be due to the cold weather, reported the Forbes.

The user hinted that “it might have something to do with how the ambient light sensor and infrared camera on the front of the device respond to the change in lighting in combination with the lower weather temperatures”, the repor added.

However, the Cupertino based is working on a fix for the same which is likely to be rolled out in the next update.
