    What do others say about the iphone x that annoy you?

    For example. I have heard a few people describe the iphone x as an experimental phone and that you should wait for the 2nd generation x to become available bexause its going to be better.

    Drives me nuts when i hear people say that. Ok lets skip the 2nd generation x because the 3rd is going to be better shall we. I think its ridiculous to suggest a device costing over 1000 bucks is being described as an experiment!

    Every so often a company will try something new, add new features, try to improve and so forth. Just because its something new / different does not make it an experiment! Its a new / different approach to how people interact with their iphone.

    If your cool with that then jump on board and enjoy the improvements when they do come wether that be in the form of software improvements or 2nd gen device etc

    This idea that you should not buy a phone because the next generation model will be improved is beyond stupid

    I don’t have the X yet, I’m one waiting on the second generation . Nothing really bothers me what people say about the X, but if there was one thing said about the X that bothered me, it would be that Apple copied Android features.

    Oh, was at the Apple store today playing with it again, it’s trying to suck me in.

    Other than people calling it the iPhone EX, I haven’t heard anyone say anything negative or anything that drives me nuts. People are often awestruck when they see it.

    That's on Apple. They saw this happen already with OS X. The Isaacson Steve Jobs biography audiobook says "x" every time.

    Yes and no. By now, everyone should know that it’s the iPhone 10. During commercials from both Apple and wireless carriers, the device is referred to as the iPhone 10.

    Haha I would drive you crazy, I say X pretty much because that’s what everyone is calling it. Or I just say “that new iPhone..”

    This is similar to all these new terms that come out from pop culture, I don’t what half of them mean (turnt, fleek etc.) but they are widely used unfortunately. I’m just trying to make it easier to communicate with the masses.

    When they ask if it’s the Ex just tell them no it’s not. Finished.

    With AppleCare, speck case, and the Zagg screen protector it’s costing me about $1500. Oh forgot about the 7.5% tax in Ohio.

    1) The "Notch": I don't notice it. Until they bring it up. Over and over again, and usually from people that don't own an X.

    2) There's no Home Button: True. There isn't. In about 8 seconds, I learned the gestures that don't require me to press a button.

    3) Face ID isn't secure or fast. My X unlocks faster with Face ID than my 6S did with my Fingerprint pressing the home button. And I don't need to store prints from both hands in case I pick up the phoneme with my left hand instead of my right.

    THIS! I've seen a couple of youtube videos where people hacked it. by taking hours of photoshopping parts of faces onto silicone masks. if you're willing to go to those lengths to see the photos of my cat I took, you can have it.

    Not to mention They would physically have to have your phone and somehow turn off the find my phone feature where you could wipe it remotely...

    It’s only 2.9% smaller, and a different aspect ratio. It’s large, but different ha ha.
