IPhone X Has Green Line Display Problem

IPhone X Has Green Line Display Problem

Just 10 days after its much publicised launch, the iPhone X honeymoon phase appears to be over. The iPhone X now retails for $999.

For reference, the current iPhone X has a 5.8-inch OLED display, whereas the iPhone 8 Plus has a display size of 5.5 inches.

From then, Samsung's been launching multiple Galaxy A smartphone models yearly, and it looks like this won't change in 2018. It is speculated that this particular model of the A series will bag an improved camera, in comparison to its predecessors.

In addition to a new 5.8-inch OLED model (an updated iPhone X), KGI expects Apple to introduce a 6.5-inch OLED model (think Plus-sized iPhone X) in addition to a new 6.1-inch LCD model.

That said, the company is still working on a software update that it hopes will tackle the issue altogether. There doesn't appear to be any correlation between different configurations of the iPhone X. Think of these as the iPhone X 2, at least for now. Last week, Apple had also warned users that the iPhone X's OLED screen might fall prey to screen burn in, and advised users to keep the brightness as low as possible to avoid the problem. Some users report that it only happens at max volume, while others have problems right down to around 70 per cent. The iPhone X is reportedly producing crackling sounds with all sorts of audio playback including phone calls, alarms and ringtones. Having had my iPhone X for less than 24 hours, here are my first impressions of the phone that could very well usher in a new generation of mobile technology. Users have also noted that rebooting the phone does not fix the issue. However, some users have been able to get their units replaced under warranty from their local Apple service centres and you should too, if you've been facing the same issue. According to the complaints, when used as a speakerphone at high volumes, the iPhone X earpiece speaker can buzz or crackle.

There is no official response from the Apple on the green line issue as of now.

KGI has previously predicted that all iPhones will drop Touch ID next year in favor of Face ID as the new design moves away from fingerprint recognition in favor of facial recognition for biometric security.
