Here's how the new iPhone X compares to the original iPhone

The following is a transcript of the video.

The original iPhone was released ten 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 320×480, while the iPhone X has 5.8″OLED screen with a resolution of 2436×1125.

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 $US499, while the 64-gigabyte X retails for $US999. Is it worth twice the original?
