The iPhone X is equipped with dual 12MP shooters at the back – a wide-angle lens and the other a telephoto lens – with f/1.8 and f/2.4 aperture respectively. Both cameras come with optical image stabilizers to counter hand-shake and produce sharp images under 2x Optical Zoom. The dual cameras are more than capable of shooting crystal-clear photos in all lighting conditions.

Besides housing a 7MP shooter, the cutout also consists of cameras and sensors including an infrared camera, flood illuminator, proximity scanner, ambient light sensor, speaker, microphone and dot projector. All of these combines together for extended functions including Animoji, Face ID, and a number of cool camera tricks.

Apple has always been known for producing reliable iPhones; so if the iPhone X’s price is still a hard pill to swallow, you can always consider purchasing other iPhones instead.
