    Actually hadn’t realized until you mentioned.

    Apple's camera app shoots in 4:3 by default. You'll have to use a 3rd party camera app to get the full screen photos. I haven't found one that uses the full aspect ratio yet. 16:9 is the closest I've found. It's a bit misleading because in Apple's promotional material they show all photos fullscreen.

    That’s not only on iPhone X, but also on older iPhones with the 16:9 aspect ratio. Soon someone will come up with a 3rd party app for that. But I suggest taking photos in 4:3 or 16:9, or the shape will look awkward when transferred to a PC or Mac.

    Sorry, a little confused here. Is this conversation about when taking photos with the iPhone X, or merely reviewing photos that you have in your library?

    Photos on the X would need to have a resolution size compatible enough to fit the entire screen. The same is true with older iPhones as well. Photos taken with the 8 Plus don't fill the Plus screen either, unless a 3rd party camera app is used with a 16x9 aspect ratio setting. Photos would need to be cropped to fit the X full screen.

    It would apply either way.

    It’s weird bc for an edge to edge screen phone the camera app doesn’t use the entire screen and it ends up looking so small and like a regular iPhone 8

    They're photos. They are the exact same size on both the X and the 8 in aspect ratio. If you wanted them to fill the screen, they would look like this wallpaper in size.
