    After 11 months of using my X I still tend to pick up my device upside down and as anyone with an edge to edge iPhone knows raise to wake doesn’t work when your not camera side up.

    Never had this issue with my home button iPhones and since I went screen protector free it happens more often.

    Anyone with the new design doing the iPhone FLIP???

    I do sometimes but generally use an Apple case with an exposed bottom bezel so I can tell which way my phone is facing without touching it. Tapping the screen to wake the phone up before picking it up helps too.

    I do on occasion, but it’s not a big deal for me.

    I don't do the flip... My iPhone goes in my pocket the same way every time. Therefore it comes out the same way also

    Right, but it used to happen to me with the iPhone 6s, because it was space gray, the front face was black, and the button wasn’t obvious at a glance. I swore if I bought another iPhone it would be a color with a white face for that reason - the white face phones have that gold ring around the home button, and the earpiece speaker is more obvious at a glance. But then - iPhone X...

    With the iPhone X (and before with the 6s) I get by this almost every time by putting the phone in my pocket with the top down. The Apple leather case also helps, as it is open on the bottom.

    Makes good sense

    I’m not complaining at all as the iPhone Flip is quick but it happens to me more when I place it on my round coffee table and pick it up from the other side

    I’ve gotten into the habit of laying it face down. That way, when I go to pick it up, I know which way is up.

    I do this sometimes too, but most times I recognize my buttons are in the wrong place so I’m able to catch it.

    Haven't noticed myself doing this with my Xr very much, but it does have a defender case since before I even cut it on so I generally use the little cutout on the back to help me determine the phones orientation.
