Yep, it’s here. The iPhone X has landed, and as tech bloggers and die-hard Apple enthusiasts around the world are getting to grips with the new Face ID, the gap where the home button used to be and the omnipresence of the much-discussed ‘notch’ (it’s hard to take your eyes off it, honestly), we want to know only one thing. How good is the camera?
Fortunately, Lok Cheung is back in London, so we promptly packed him off to Carphone Warehouse so he could find out. How did he get on? You can watch his full iPhone X camera review now – a review that was actually shot entirely on the iPhone 8 Plus, with the help of a few handy accessories (a Helium Core iPhone case and Rode VideoMicro, if you’re curious).
Lok puts the camera through its paces, running through the macro mode and the new optical stabilisation of the tele lens. To test the slow-motion video he enlists the help of BMXer Gianni Zahra, and he takes the phone down to Camden to have a play with the selfie camera, and finally even finds time for some late-evening photography to see how it handles itself in low light. (And to start with there is, of course, the obligatory unboxing).
We’re planning to take a more in-depth look at what the iPhone X’s camera is capable of, so let us know in the comments or on social media if there’s anything in particular you’d like us to cover. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy Lok’s iPhone X camera review!
