    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.

    Hey Tong! I think you nailed it! Everything you said was spot on. Crazy how we all think a like. I’m definitely looking forward to the next version already. And iOS 12 see what Apple do. One thing you said which I’m scared to do is use my iPhone x without a case lol.

    The notch is a personal preference thing. People will always complain no matter what, you can't please everyone.

    Closing apps once you get those red circles you flick them just like old way

    Move the keyboard lower! You have to be kidding me Brian. The keyboard is further up the screen, so you can type comfortably. If it was lower you would need yoga thumbs!

    The home button is much less intuitive than the swipe up gesture, imo.

    I must admit the screen is nice BUT that NOTCH bothers me. I tried to ignore it but since I watch a lot of movies and videos on my phone it’s hard. I think Apple at one point will get rid of that. For a person coming from 7 plus it does feel smaller.

    Love the fresh take on the review format, almost like just talking to a well informed friend. How many different panning slow motion shots of precariously placed phones can we have anyways ?

    While we already have swiping gesture on android for years……can even choose what you want with gesture…….no root needed……anyway let's just hope apple will listen to their customer

    That's a really good point about the digital replacement home button using 3D sense technology to emulate the old physical home button. I like the functionality of the home button and wouldn't really miss the fingerprint scanner if I could still technically use a home button. It's such a basic idea but a really good one!

    When viewing the now-playing song in the music app, the software does a beautiful job hiding the notch. The design is clean and natural and does not look like there is just a slice in the top of the phone.

    To close apps. Open the app switcher and then long touch an app in it. Then swipe up. The app closes like a breeze. Perfect one handed usage.

    I'm actually leaning towards the LG V30 it would be the first non iPhone for me to get since 3GS.

    I actually like the separation of iOS devices since they are now more different than ever. I LOVE iOS 11 on iPad and the fact it’s much different than what is on the iPhone X. It’s about time Apple did this.
