    I have just returned mine. Having come from a plus size model I don’t like the smaller screen. Yes it is smaller, having the same width as the normal iPhone, just as bit taller, and most of that space is taken up by the notch. The screen did not wow me, which I think is down to how good previous LCD screens are. Lastly FaceID is to slow and feels like the first generation touchID. The iPhone X feels like a first GEN phone and you know next years version will be awesome. Especially when they make the XL version with a truly bigger screen.

    Not a fair review. For example to close apps. When u hold. U can simply slide up to close them no need to touch the red button

    I think I’ve had 7 iPhones and can say the best iPhone ever, quality of the hardware is immense

    The phone is really excellent .. that screen is simply amazing .. remember the futuristic Amazon show Extant .. their phones were just slabs of glass with touch screens .. this phone really feels like that!!! Don’t really miss the Touch ID .. Face ID works really well!!

    Just don’t enable Face ID..
    And there is already a button that can act like a home or control center, it’s called “Assistive Touch”

    The 3d home button idea you described is exactly how Samsung implemented it lol. 3d touch home button is actually pretty nice.

    You’re kind of misleading people. The app switcher can be opened quickly by swiping from the bottom of the screen at a narrow curve/angle to either the left or right edge. Then when you press and hold on the apps you want to close, you can just swipe them up like before—you don’t have to hit the minus button at the top. The reachability + control center is very fast too after you get used to doing it for a day.

    It's ruined the whole tenth anniversary model milestone. Steve Jobs would come back to life & strangle Johnny boy before setting the new Apple campus ablaze.

    I don’t understand why so many people who are paid to review and critique these devices say things like you have to press the end app in the top left corner when closing apps down yes you can do that but once you have activated the app closer you can still swipe up which is just as quick as before, now I know there’s a process to get to that point but so many vloggers say it’s a pain to close apps because off the having to press the button but you don’t have to, that’s my point sorry for the long post.

    I have seen many reviews out there for the iPhone X, this is, hands down, the best one. I absolutely agree that force touch should be used to emulate the home button. As for the notch, I’m sure Apple has debated internally long about this and my personal conclusion is that their take out was that making the phone unique was higher on the list than just having a black hardware bar accross the screen. After all, it would not have been that original. Anyways, thank you Brian for the best review out there…

    iPhone X is honestly a great phone but it needs a lot of polishing to be what it truly can. Maybe the next iPhone will be a finished product. I feel that the iPhone 7 Plus was the finished product of the iPhone 6 designs with 8 plus adding some “meh” functionality. Similarly maybe the iPhones one or two years down the line will be complete and worth a 1000 bucks. Till then I won’t be willing to pay that high a price for a test ride.

    if the next generation is notch free I may consider it, but I cannot seal with that ugly intrusive notch.

    YES!!!! Use the 3d touch to replace the home button! Apple already use that on the 7 and 8, so why dont they use that on iPhone X? Taptic engine is just useless on the X. Press harder to go back to the home button, swipe up from the bottom to get to the control center, press harder twice to get to the app switcher, and boom, you get literally the same ui as on the previous iphone and ipad, all while using the taptic engine to create that feedback as if you press a real button, just like on the 7 and 8
