On cloud 9 atm! Got an email from the Apple Dubai Marketing team asking me to come into their offices for a hands on demo with the new iPhone X.

First impressions - very impressed. Hardware feels premium in the hand. The attention to detail makes this feel like a piece of jewellery. Face ID works really well. Home button (lack of) needs some getting used to. Let me know if you'd like to me share any more.

Can you share a recorded Animoji? Which file format is used for Animjois? GIF or MP4?

Can we get a preview of the various new wallpaper options that are exclusive to the X?
I will do. Thanks for that. I’ll actually post It first thing tomorrow/today on my Instagram Story for you @emkwan

Can you test faceID in bright sunshine? There has been one review already where bright sunshine causes issues with faceID.
Ok sir! I’ve tested it in bright Dubai sunshine and in pitch black. Perfoms really well actually in both.

Space Grey looks great!

Out of interest do you get to keep the iPhone X?

How is one handed use?

Keep us posted on battery over the next few days!

Which exlusive wallpaper options?
The X supposedly has exclusive live wallpapers (similar to the static wallpaper in the promo shots that move for 3 seconds), dynamic wallpapers (black background with floating bubbles), and static wallpapers (the ones on the promo photos and box lids.

With the swipe-up gesture to go home, do you have to start the swipe off-screen or can you swipe up starting with your finger on the screen (hope that's making sense) - I'm wondering how well this gesture will work with a case on. TIA

In the video, he swiped up a little above the white bar at the bottom and it still opened. There was more than enough room for there to be a lip of a case so I don't see this being a problem. I was curious about the same thing.

I would like to see this too. Do you still have to press on the screen for it to move? That’s what I’m really curious about

Unfortunately you do. I had hoped they'd activate when looking at the screen

Finally some space grey action! Crazy how pretty much all the review units have been silver. Looks so clean in SG. I wonder how durable the SG band is. Would be awesome if it was anywhere close to the SB watch coating.
