    Camera screen are crisp.

    Worthy upgrade

    I agree with most of the posts on this thread but overall I am not impressed with the X. The size is smaller than I expected and compared to the Note 8 the X dosent come close.

    I don’t think I’ll ever understand this opinion. What do you guys want? “Pretty large”? In what way?
    The X does have a large bezel all the way around the phone, compared to a lot of android phones. I don’t mind it at all, but I can understand people who don’t like it.

    The more I use the X, the more I like it. The Face ID is the best experience I’ve ever had with biometrics on any phone. I also really enjoy the gestures.

    The iPhone has not had this premium feel in a long time IMO. It’s weighty in the right way and solid all over.

    Screen is not exactly bezeless; has the side bezels of the last few generations just all the way around now. It’s very very fast.

    Very fast. Setup as new and downloaded all my apps (about 100 ) in 5-10 minutes.

    Camera’s good, nothing earth shattering. Photos have more detail when zoomed-in and better definition than the 7 plus I’m coming from.

    With True Tone enabled I only notice the blue shift of the OLED on a white background and even then it’s very slight.

    Before buying the phone I thought I would disable Face ID because I was afraid someone could unlock my phone by holding to my face. But as long as the attention requirement is enabled (default) it won’t unlock which is perfect. Otherwise it unlocks flawlessly even in a completely dark room.

    The only annoying part of owning it so far is I had to beat my friends/coworkers off with a stick because everyone wanted to hold this thing before I could get it out the box!

    Of course I like it! But I’m not real happy that my banking apps etc. that I use touch ID to log onto don’t work now with Face ID. I thought they said it would automatically take the place of touch ID. Or is it up to the individual app to adjust to Face ID? Anybody know??
    Now that I’ve been able to check further, I discovered that Touch ID had gotten turned off when installed from backup. Now that I turned it back on, I can use Face ID instead. So now I’m happy!!

    It may be $750 for both and like $250 for the front, I’ve only been half paying attention to the 2,000 iPhone X videos in my YouTube feed ha ha.
    I’m pretty sure it’s $275 to replace the front and $550 for the back. Either way that’s kinda crazy!

    I love it. The screen is just as good as the LCD TrueTone display on the 8 Plus, which is a good thing. FaceID is a lot quicker than I thought it would be. My phone is unlocked and on the home screen in less than a second. It really works. Pro Tip: Don't wait for the unlock animation. Just use raise to wake, swipe up right after the phone wakes, and you're in.

    This is the best iPhone I have ever used, by far.

    We all have different opinion obviously but for me I really like this phone. Coming from a plus user starting with iPhone 6 Plus, I will say the size for me is just perfect. It’s easier to hold and perfectly fits my hand. The screen size is taller but narrower compared to the plus but I have gotten used to it just by using it the whole day yesterday. The Face ID is amazing! Never going back to Touch ID again. Some people are saying that they don’t feel like Face ID is faster and easier to use than Touch ID but those people who are saying that are only sharing their experience from a demo unit in the store or just saying what they think of it but never actually experience themselves. You have to actually own it and use it the whole day to really feel the advantage of Face ID over Touch ID. I have also gotten used to the new gesture. I don’t miss the home button anymore. It’s very easy to use now. I’m sure someday I will find something negative about it but for now I haven’t found any.

    Being a former Blackberry OS10 user and having every iPhone including the original model. This is my favorite one so far.

    Forum factor is excellent and it feels great in my hand. The screen is sharp, crisp and very responsive to using the gestures.

    The speed of the X is great and I have experienced no lag. I have big hands and haven’t had the reachability issues folks have been talking about.

    After using the device the better part of a day now, I don’t even miss the 1100 and change I paid for it. My hats off to the Apple iPhone X team. Great job for your first time around using gestures.
    One of the things I noticed with the Ten is the gestures are very familiar to BB10 users of he past. They seemed so natural when using the BB specifically the BB10 OS.

    After watching YouTubes before delivery all I heard about was people squawking about the notch and now I haven’t heard it once. It’s not an issue? I didn’t think it would be.

    I’m still loving my 6S.

    Honestly, I don’t really notice the notch. Not even when watching videos. It’s naturally where my thumb lies when holding it in landscape anyway. Everybody just needed something to complain about is all.

    I'm coming from an iPhone 7 Plus so the first thing I have to get used to is the size. So far Face ID is working like a charm. Used it in the dark this morning and it did what it needed to do. Face ID doesn't work in Landscape mode, it has to be held straight on. Most of my apps take advantage of the full screen except Home Run Battle 2. It uses only iPhone 7 size of the screen, not the full 5.8". I'll probably return in and go back to my 7 Plus.

    Fantastic phone. Love the size, this is the iPhone I've been waiting for. And I actually now prefer the swiping gesture which feels so much more fluid and quicker than hitting the button. Definitely an increase in speed and the face-id just works!

    Ive had the phone for two days and here are my impressions...

    1. screen is amazing - don't notice notch after a while, especially on optimized apps. hopefully burn in is not an issue ( apple already has warnings not to use phone at high brightness for a while and other guidelines.) The ATT store by me had a print out was odd.

    2. Face ID works pretty good only had issues in bright light and even than it worked was just much slower.

    3. Camera - This is where I nit pick. Best camera is the one I have with me. All reviews post photos of stationary scenes. I judge it by my 4 toddlers. In this scenario it did not perform nearly as well as my pixel 2. The new iPhone got me 6 good pics out of 10, pixel was close to 8 out of 10. Once again I'm nit picking. Both cameras have plus and minus and are excellent. But to me if I was choosing a phone just for camera and kids this would not be in. The iPhone x auto focus is just a tad slower. I hope to post comparison photos later as took both phones to an event last night.

    4. Feel in hand is great. Even with a case on its almost flawless in size.

    I have no opinion of iOS or android, I normally carry whatever phone has best ability to take photos of my kids.

    Last thing I will say in every other way iPhone X is great, it just didn't pass my photo test. It wasn't bad just not same league as pixel phones with moving kids.

    I guess the word “large” really makes me scratch my head. Compared to my S8, I’m not looking at my X and thinking about the bezels. I also wasn’t in the group complaining about bezels on the last phone though.

    I don't have a Note 8 anymore. I exchanged it for the 8 Plus a couple of weeks back. But as far as the iPhone X is when compared to the Note 8: the size of the X is much more manageable than the size of the Note 8, for sure. The Note 8 felt like a huge brick in my pocket and the X feels like a small iPhone in my pocket, which is a good thing. The Note 8 is just too big.

    I felt like the Note 8 was too big too. I saw one on display the day before they went on sale. It’s too tall. I kinda feel like my S8+ is too tall now too.

    First impressions are that it is quick, Face ID works as advertised, but with the screen taking up the whole front side it has become just a tad to big for me.

    I like to be able to touch everything with my one hand. I had an iPhone 7 Jest Black and was able to hit everywhere on the screen, however, with the X it is hard to get to the control center without readjusting. Not that big of a deal though.

    I really like the OLED and HDR videos look great. I will post more as I get used to it more and more.

    I have no idea when my cases are getting in so I financed a screen protector and Otterbox Symmetry today. I noticed that the X is actually a little easier to use in a case. This surprised me a little.

    A few thoughts on the iPhone X:

    I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet. It's an iPhone. It's iOS. So i'll update this throughout the day probably.

    Like: Build quality. The hardware is what we've come to expect from Apple.
    Like: FaceID. It seems to be working as advertised.
    Like: The display: The display is great. Not sure I like TruTone on though. Makes the screen look like Night Shift is on.
    Like: Dat Camera: It's awesome.
    Like: Animoji: Yeah it's fluff but it's damn fun and the accuracy of it mimicking your facial expressions are on point.

    Dislike: The size: Not a fan. Don't like it. Sure you get a larger screen but the phone is still a hair larger than the regular iPhones. Why did I go so long without trying an iPhone? The size. The jury is out on whether the size grows on me but I'll halt all accessory purchases aside from the one case I have and one on the way for a week to see if it grows on me.Could be a dealbreaker FOR ME. It feels good in the hands...LADIES (Shout out to Floss) and I don't have large hands but I've had big phones since the Note 4.

    Dislike: The battery percentage does not fit in the top bar because of the notch. There's no space for it. So I have to slide over to widgets to see that.
    Dislike: Wasted space when you bring up the keyboard. See the attached picture.

    Dislike: FaceID: I know I have it as a like but I don't like to still swipe to go to the home screen. If have the option to wake the display on pickup, FaceID needs to recognize me and go immediately to homescreen.

    Dislike: App optimization. The iphone reveal was what, September? Why is your app not ready on launch Day.


    That's all I have for now. It's an iPhone. It's iOS, you know what you're getting. Right now, that's how I feel. I've only been up and running for a little over an hour. Haven't played around with the camera yet and that's what i'm about to get into as I get out and about. When I focus on the screen, the size of the phone is less of an issue for me. I still wish it were larger though (That's what she said).
    I could see this being the base model next year at the current 8 prices and a larger phone/display at the $999 price point. From my short experience so far, I'll give it a week to see if it grows on me.

    I am liking it so far. Loving the size and how it is not that much larger than the 7 and you finally get top of the line specs with a smaller phone. Screen looks really nice, the notch really hasn't bothered me. Many of the apps I use were updated to take advantage of it (still some that haven't been, but only a few)

    Those complaining about the bezels... serious thought.. what if Apple CAN’T take it to the edge “infinity style” due to Samsung copyrights? I don’t see any technological limitation - they already purchase the technology from Samsung, and Apple really has a knack for implementing technology, even if it isn’t first to the game. They may have been obligated to keep a thin (it really is thin, it isn’t large like some of you guys are saying) to avoid licensing costs. Just my thought. Second day with the phone and this is the most intuitive I have ever thought iPhone has performed. My biggest complaint has always been it WASN’T intuitive... that’s all gone now.

    Yea I don’t really care for the space underneath either. In some apps so far when using SwiftKey, it leaves a small white bar across the screen.
