iPhone X Manages To Take Second Spot In TIME’s List Of ‘Top 10 Gadgets Of 2017’
It has been a little over two weeks since the iPhone X was launched to the general public. While the device featured a radical design change, it can clearly be seen as the biggest change since the original iPhone was launched back in 2007. Not just the hardware or the external design, the iPhone X brings new ways of interacting with the device. Now, as the iPhone X is gradually reaching out to customers around the world, we’re hearing details on how it ranks with other products on the market. Recently, the iPhone X and the Apple Watch Series 3 became the center of attention under TIME magazine. So let’s dive in to see some more details on the matter.
iPhone X And Apple Watch Series 3 Are Part Of TiME’s “Top 10 Gadgets Of 2017”
TIME shared its list of “Top 10 Gadgets Of 2017”. Among the list, the iPhone X has managed to score the second spot, a runner-up to the Nintendo Switch. As the title suggests, the publication basically puts together a list of gadgets which are ranked as being one of the important devices to come out this year. The ranks are diverse as it constitutes gaming consoles, smartphones, smartwatches, smart speakers and much more.
Yes, it’s expensive. Yes, you’ll probably have a hard time getting your hands on one. And yes, Android did it first. But the iPhone X’s edge-to-edge screen and facial recognition system will undoubtedly set a new standard for phones to come. For one, Apple’s Face ID system, even despite the security concerns, is already being used in more creative ways than Samsung’s facial identification tech. Third-party apps like Snapchat and Warby Parker are taking advantage of the iPhone X’s face-mapping technology to project realistic masks over your eyes or select glasses that suit your face’s shape. That, combined with a sharp camera, long battery life, and large screen packed into a more palatable size, make Apple’s iPhone X a top pick.”
Apart from the iPhone X scoring the second position on the list, another Apple product also made it to the list that launched this year. That’s right, resting at number 9, the Apple Watch Series 3 has also made it to the list.
Here’s what the publication has to say about the rankings.
“Apple’s latest smartwatch finally lets you leave your phone at home. Since it supports LTE, you can receive calls and texts on your wrist even when your phone is out of range. The third-generation Apple Watch also brings a faster processor and a new barometric altimeter for measuring activities like the numbers of stairs you climb. The Apple Watch isn’t meant to replace your phone, and just about anything you would usually use your phone for is better on a larger screen. But the freedom to leave your phone at home when you step out to walk the dog or go on a run may be just enough to persuade smartwatch skeptics that the Apple Watch is worth considering, especially for athletic types.”
Below is the complete list of “Top 10 Gadgets of 2017” according to TIME magazine:
