    Ok so I get Apple is more about form over function, it really who would actually prefer a useless battery icon that just gives a general idea of battery level instead of an exact amount.
    Ok there is no room for both. So put the pct instead of the icon. Or at least give a choice.
    Even on previous models I never understood why not showing the pct was the default.

    I know it’s a small trivial thing, but it really bothers me.

    It bothers me, too. You can swipe down to the right of the notch to see it in control center but I like just seeing the number.

    See this thread about the battery indicator:

    No numerical battery charge indicator?

    I personally roll with the percentage off normally so the current implementation works fine for me.

    Thats my biggest gripe with apple! Like how hard is it to give us the option? They just do not listen to what there fans/consumers want

    It takes time when it comes to Apple.

    When you receive a call while the screen is off a red reject button would also be nice. Been waiting years for that one.

    Yeah, always wanted that. An alternative is to press the side button. That declines the call.

    Either the engineers are lazy or simply don't care what the consumers want. I prefer to have a % indicator instead of a bar forcing me to swipe the top right corner to see %. Options are what we should have.

    The power button on the side does that for you.
    When receiving a call:
    -press the power button once to mute the ringing,
    -press the power button twice to decline / reject the call.

    Also, when you receive a call and press one of the volume buttons, this will mute the ringing.

    At least thats something i guess but isnt that pretty stupid too? Oh well! The iphone x has far too many drawbacks to warrant its price tag! I really want to like it but its like apple are holding it back from reaching its true potential

    You’re more like to involuntarily press the red button and decline the call when you take the phone out of your pockets.
    Accidentally swiping to answer a call is less likely.
    Accidentally pressing the power button, however not unlikely, is easier to avoid.

    So, in other words, it’s hardly a PITA.

    Its certainly not a big deal but it does seem silly how they went about it. On android you pretty much just swipe one direction to answer and swipe in the opposite direction to cancel. Very simple.

    Licenses and stuff.
    If Apple would’ve used the same, they would have been accused of copying it.
    And since I’ve never used an Android device in my life, I don’t miss it at all.

    I just suggested they change the control centre gesture to a swipe in from the right edge almost like people edge on samsung devices! Battery % would be nice too. I really hope they move the time to underneath the notch and that way they can use the top left corner for more indicators like location, bluetooth etc

    Swipe from right edge is to change pages/screens for apps. On lock screen that’s the camera. Not sure they’ll change it but never know!

    And this is a pain in the @ss. A red reject button would be nice.
    How many calls and how often do you feel the need to reject? I rarely actually reject a call. Even with telemarketers, I just press the power button to mute the ringer. Don't see it as a "pain in the..." at all.

    I just realised the battery % is not displayed on the lock screen either lol That sucks even worse now! Initially i thought it just wasn't displayed on the home screen without a swipe down! Not having it on the lock screen is a joke

    The battery symbol don’t bother me either way, I usually look to charge phone when the low battery message appears. Call reject, I either send message sorry can’t talk right now or hit power button, simple.

    Actually I prefer the button on the side. I can just reach in my pocket or even from outside my pocket just push the button to reject. Don’t need to look at the screen to do it. But either way, just make it an option. Apple has never been about options. On the contrary Apple has always been anti options. They like to control how we do everything. Hence they decide which apps we can or cannot install. They do their best to prevent jailbreaking.

    I actually prefer the power button to reject a call because often times I need to hear my ringer but there are occasions when I’m talking to a customer and don’t want to be rude so I’ll mute my call in my pocket.
