Hey all! I figured I'd post some pictures of my iPhone X 64GB Silver which I picked up at the Apple Store this morning. I do have 3 cases and 1 glass screen protector on the way. I'll update this thread with thoughts on the accessories and full package all together. Lastly, I was on the fence between the Google Pixel 2 XL and the iPhone X. I have both devices on-hand and intend to post a thorough comparison of the two to help people in my similar situation decide on the best device for them. Going Button-LESS: This has been such a positive switch. I'm not just building hype here, but the removal of the home button and the UX Apple created to replace it has been super easy and a breeze to use. Many reviews show it takes time to get used to. I'd say I had it down in a matter of minutes and felt much more natural and comfortable than a home button. I no longer accidentally activate Siri when I double tap the home button incorrectly or triple tap for the magnification, like I always did on my previous iPhones. Face ID: It's fast. Like, really fast. I felt this took more getting "used" to than the removal of the home button. I am not used to lifting my phone and just swiping up because it is already unlocked. When I lift the device, I'm sort of expecting something, but without notifications displayed - I don't notice the unlock icon appear right away. Once you get used to it, it's as simple as lift and swipe up. Screen: I got the iPhone 8+ for a hot second when it came out. The one thing that was hard to leave was the "true-tone" display. I can't stress how much I love this feature. My iPhone 7+ looks cold and dull compared to this screen. The X's screen looks like liquid colors. Absolutely beautiful. The glass is smooth and comfortable to do all the swipe gestures with, which is very important to have a positive UX. I'll let the gutsy reviewers do the scratch and drop tests for ya'll here. Size: I have always wanted to the standard size iPhone 7 or iPhone 8, but the large screen on the Plus was a must. Now that the X has removed the bezels, we get the perks of the screen size and the very comfortable overall phone size for your hand. For the record, I don't have large hands. I am using the X one handed and reaching for the control center or notifications is not an issue. My opinion is that reviewers have negged on this change and while it is a new way to interface with the iPhone, it's most certainly not a horrible change. New UX brings on new ways to interface with technology. This is Apples first step to implementing that change and I feel comfortable saying that it will only get better from here. Color: I had the chance to look at both colors. I always get black devices. I opted for the Silver this round and I don't regret it. The black shows smudges like no other. The silver does too, but it's definitely not as noticeable unless you hold it under direct light (like my pictures). The trim is chrome and at first I felt put off by it, but it's growing on me. The back is a very feint silver that looks white too. Hard to describe until you see it in person, but I found it to be absolutely gorgeous while the Space Grey looked a little too Grey and faded for my taste. Again, I do plan on posting a full review in writing and video format. I will also do a side by side comparison of real world experiences using the Google Pixel 2 XL and iPhone X - after testing the device out over the weekend. I'll update this thread with the accessories I have ordered. Here to answer any questions. Update 1: Per the request of @mikosk - I have included several attachments of real app display and usage. Screenshots, unfortunately, won't do the job in showing the "notch" and how apps are working around it or against it. Instead, I have provided several pictures I took of these apps. One of my largest concerns was the notch interfering with scrolling. Some of the pictures I have taken show how the scroll bar does not interfere with the notch. Many apps haven't updated yet either - such as Google Maps. App Image Notes: iFunny - you can see status bar area effects the title section of the app. Easy fix in an update, not a real problem. Netflix - You can watch videos with full screen or in a rectangle mode. You can see the notch doesn't interfere much, but for some it could be a turn off. Just double tap and you'll be watching it the same way you did on previous iPhones. Apple Apps - You can expect all of these to play well. MAIL works and looks great. I'd post an image, but i've hit the cap on this OP.
