Here’s how the new iPhone X compares to the original iPhone
The original iPhone was released 10 years ago, and a lot has changed since then. The most obvious change is size. The original iPhone was 2.4” x 4.5’’, while the iPhone X: 2.79” x 5.65”.
The screen has also come a long way in 10 years. The original iPhone has a 3.5” LCD screen with a resolution of 320x480, while the iPhone X has 5.8”OLED screen with a resolution of 2436x1125.
In terms of weight, the original iPhone weighs 4.8 ounces, while the iPhone X weighs 6.1 ounces.
The processor on the X, 2.39 GHz, is about 5x as powerful as the original iPhone’s processor, at 4.12MHz.
The original iPhone had a low-res 2 MP camera, and all the application could do was take photos. The iPhone X has a 12 MP camera, which does everything from taking photos to recording slow-motion video. We can’t compare selfie cameras since the original didn’t have one.
There was no App Store when the iPhone first launched and apps were locked in place – no rearranging.
The original iPhone only had a single speaker. The X has two speakers although it lacks a headphone jack.
The original iPhone was exclusive to AT&T in the US, while the X is available on all of the major networks.
The base 4-gigabyte original iPhone retailed for US$499, while the 64-gigabyte X retails for US$999. Is it worth twice the original?
