    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.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...c6f03540e0.jpg
    Oh wow yeah I have Google keyboard which works fine but just so odd looking with the space.

    The phone is great, just has some oddities to it that I'm not used to yet!

    Usually have decent signal down at a family members house where the reception isnt great, but still have LTE available. Although today I'm not sure if the weather has something to do with it but I'm only getting 1x now.

    I picked up three X's earlier. One to play around with during the trial period and going to try to sell the other two. Been playing with it since it restored a couple of hours ago.

    - Very nice form factor

    - I'm impressed with the screen, but not overtly. OLED is nice but I could live without it

    - I am somewhat already clamoring for a bigger screen

    - Face ID is still learning my face as I go so I'll reserve judgement on that after a few days

    - Apps that aren't updated for the X screen look pretty bad, lol

    - I absolutely hate and I mean HATE going from a screen with black to white because that notch kills me. I absolutely notice it when going from dark to light screens and don't know if I could be used to it

    - I feel like some stock apps waste screen real estate with all the white at the bottom. Examples of this are the Mail and Messages apps

    - Really like how I can look at the lock screen with a message notification and have the message displayed without having to 3D touch it and enter touch ID. Much more seamless. Not a "chore" lol

    - Cameras are nice and wife will love portrait mode for the front-facing camera to my chagrin

    Dislike: App optimization.
    I agree with you on that point. The iPhone X was announced on September 12 and app developers had a couple of months to optimize their apps, and it's disappointing that so few developers actually optimized their apps in that time. There's no excuse for that at all.

    Great phone, true plus users might not like it, but 7/8 users like me that didn't like the plus will love it.
    Never liked the home button the new one was better but the old like on iPads was never consistent, some smooth some clicky and noisy, and TID was hit and miss with my rough fingers.
    Screen is excellent, my only complaint is FID in my car as its brodit holder is over to the left and have to lean over a bit to open, am looking for a new wireless car holder/charger anyway.

    I'm also confused with all that space under the keyboard. I'm not mistyping but it just looks so odd
    When I 1st saw the bar I thought it was going to fill with icons for my other keyboards and I’m disappointed it doesn’t. I have 4 other non apple emoji keyboards use and it would be nice if they all just populated into that bar rather than having to hold down and select one.

    When I took this phone out of the box and held it for the first time the first thing that stands out to me is the weight of the device. It is so nicely weighted and feels so nice in the hand that I spent the first 10 minutes or so just holding it and turning it around in my hands. The phones just feels so solid, possibly moreso than the essential phone . Next was just how glossy it was and how easily this phone smudges. This is the first iPhone I have had with a white back (because I prefer the black fronts). As with most glass phones it is easy to smudge and easy to clean off. I thought that by getting the white/ silver back it would be able to hide the finger prints a little better but that does not appear to be the case.
    The camera bmp on this phone is huge. Bigger than the one on the 8 plus. It almost as if they want it to be a statement piece of the phone, a lot like the notch on the front. I understand why it has to be there but that doesn't mean I have to like it.
    Last but not least is perhaps the weirdest one to me. in fact I still have trouble believing it. The iPhone x is 7.7mm thing but when compared in thickness to my galaxy s8 (that is 8mm at its thickest point) it feels like the thicker of the two devices. This threw me for a loop. but oddly enough I like it. The X feels more substantial in the hand.

    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.
    I highly doubt Samsung can patent small bezels. the essential phone and mi mix both have minimal side bezels. I think it was more a design choice by apple to reduce accidental touches; something the s8 suffers from a lot.

    I personally can not stand the curved edges on the Sammy’s phones. But the Essential phone, IMO is a masterpiece. If the iPhone X had the same size side bezels as that phone, then the iPhone X would be absolutely perfect for me.

    I also wish there was a way to force apps to go full screen (like on the Essential Phone). That will never happen without Jailbreaking, and there is no way I’ll jailbreak my iPhone X. Maybe developers will hurry up and update their apps.

    I would think that looking at how the sales of the iPhone X have taken off, developers will be updating their apps more sooner then later.

    I am pretty surprised with the weight and thickness as well. It's definitely a solid device, but so much thicker than the 7/7+ and 8/8+. I wonder if that had anything to do with wireless charging.

    Probably not considering both 8 models have wireless charging too.

    I'm completely guessing here, but it may have something to do with the True Depth camera system or maybe the stacked logic board/L-shaped battery combo.

    The wireless charging coil does add to to it but that cant be the only thing . The 7 plus is 7.3mm and the 8plus is 7.5mm while the x is 7.7mm. i think the big battery is a huge contributing factor as well

    I absolutely love my X. I have had a plus since they first released the 6 plus. It was a dream device for me for so long, but after years of the size it began to bother my wrists. This is where the X became the perfect device for me. Just the form factor alone is a perfect.

    Face ID is flawless. It even works in the dark.

    The speed, I am so impressed with it compared to even my 7 plus.

    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??
    Face ID works with the Chase app but it hasn’t been updated yet for Capital One.

    Loved the small form factor the most, didn't really see much difference between the 8 plus screen and the X, but it wasn't enough to sell it to me today picked up a SG8 plus instead. Congrats to all though who have the X its an awesome phone.

    Likely returning my X. I don't like the small form factor. As a long time Android fan, when the Plus series came along that was when I decided to try an iPhone. I love the size of the Plus. The X isn't really more screen, it's taller and narrower. I don't want a small phone, period. I may get the 8 Plus and wait a year for the X Plus which you know will be an option next year.

    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.
    If you haven't turned on Reachability, it sounds like it might be something you'd like having. You turn it on in Settings>General>Accessibility. Then to activate it, swipe down from close to the bottom of the screen (may take a bit of practice to learn). Reachability even makes it so you can pull down the Notifications and Control Panel screens easier.

    I'm fairly sure the added thickness on the X is that they are putting a battery that is slightly larger than the one in the 8 Plus into a phone that is closer in size to the 8.

    Yeah, it’s 25mah larger. The 8 Plus has a 2,691mah battery and the X has a 2,716mah battery.

    Great screen-to-body ration, feels better to hold than the Plus models, and the display looks better.
