    I've got my silver iPhone X 256 GB review unit in hand. I've spent a day with it. I've written 10,000 words:

    How’s Face ID?
    Is it fast? And does it work in the dark?

    Do you miss the home button?

    So fast it's often unlocked before I realize it. Works fine in the dark.

    I did for about 15 minutes. Now I miss the gestures when I go back to iPhone 8.

    Does the silver back work well with the black face.

    Has the notch caused any issues other than aesthetics?

    I can’t wait to get rid of the home button. I much prefer gestures.

    Yeah, you can't ever see both at the same time

    LOL, seriously, shiny steel gives it a great OG iPhone vibe.

    In your review, you say that there is a setting to make Face ID quicker and it works at more of an angle. How much of an angle are you talking about? If I’m sitting in a normal position at a table, and the phone is sitting flat on the table, will Face ID still work at that angle? Or would I need to lift the phone slightly?

    Any kind of frustrating disability/visibility in apps/safari etc

    Also, do screenshots show the horns?

    Using Apple Pay, is there any issue switching between payment methods when using Apple Pay in an app. For example, we can currently change before putting our thumb down. If we look to change, is it going to authorize the default card before we can stop it to switch payment?

    Hi Rene, I love watching you in MacBreak Weekly with Leo Laporte. I’m a big fan and you’re the smartest man in that show. My question is not technical but more of your experience using the phone. Anyway, what is your first impression as soon as you hold the phone in your hand? Does it really look good? Does it feel really nice when you hold it in your hand? Does the “horn” bother you? Did it live up to your expectations? Looking forward to seeing you in MacBreak weekly today!

    And I do have a question, when you send an AniMoji to a non iPhone X what do they see? Is it a video or is it the animated emoji ?

    How’s the battery life? Also, I’m coming from an iPhone 7 Plus, will I miss the size of the Plus model?

    Thanks for answering our questions!

    Are you missing reachability function on the plus models by double tapping the home button? Is it easy to reach the top of the screen single handed?

    I found it. Haven’t subscribed to podcasts before. Is there a cost?

    You can enable Reachability on the X in the accessibility settings. It's a swipe down from home bar.

    I have the 7 plus. How is the comparison in the screens? It seems the 7 Plus’ screen is bigger. I haven’t seen the X hands on so I’m not sure.

    It’s on everywhere... Podcasting app, YouTube, on the web. Google it and you can see other sources where you can access it.
