I've had my iPhone X since Monday and I have to say that I'm loving this phone. I had some concerns when the phone was announced back in September, mainly the lack of TouchID and the notch. I also had a big concern Monday when I turned on my new phone and hated the way that True Tone looked. I turned off True Tone and hated it more. I had a severe case of buyers remorse Monday, but slept on it and things have been great ever since. I figured I'd give a list of positives/negatives for anybody still on the fence who wants a perspective of somebody who has actually used this phone. Positives: 1.) Screen - The screen is gorgeous. It's even more apparent when I hold my girlfriend's 7 Plus side by side. She commented as well on much better the X's screen is. I had some initial concerns with burn in but I'm pretty convinced that it won't be a major issue, especially if you stick to using auto-brightness, which has been working great. 2.) True Tone - I've really grown to like True Tone. My first impression was pretty bad and I immediately turned it off, which I didn't like much better. I slept on it Monday night and turned back on True Tone, telling myself I'd give it a day or two. By now I'm really liking the way the colors look and it's actually somewhat jarring to look at my girlfriend's 7 Plus. For anybody who hates it right away, give yourself a few days before you make a decision (and don't constantly compare the screen to your old device). 3.) Notch - I still hold the opinion that the notch itself was a weird design decision and wish it wasn't there. That said, I'm listing this is a positive because like many others have said, in real world use, the notch is a complete non factor. It basically disappears in portrait mode and I've quickly grown use to it i landscape, especially since most of my time is spent looking at the center of the screen vs. the edges. it stands out much more in pictures or videos when that is all your focusing on. When you are actually using the X and focusing on the content on the screen, the notch doesn't even register. 4.) FaceID - This is the true standout star here. FaceID works almost flawlessly. I haven't once wished I had TouchID back. It's worked for me in different lighting conditions and in the sun. The few times it doesn't work, it's very quick and easy to type in my password. This thing works even better when it comes to quickly opening apps like LastPass or my banking app. FaceID is far better security in apps vs. TouchID because you no other steps to complete, just open the app, it scans, and you are in. It works great. Personally I think TouchID's days are numbered, and if it does come back, I doubt I'll be using it. 5.) Lack of Home Button / New Gestures - It took me a good few hours before I stopped missing the Home Button. The gestures work very well and I really like the new flow of navigating around. It feels like the future and it seems like most people are quickly getting use to, and in many cases preferring, having no home button. Negatives 1.) Battery Life - I am coming from a Plus so I'm seeing a bit of a dip in battery life. Not awful, for not unexpected. Wireless/quick charging make this is a little easier to deal with, but people who aren't near a charger all day are probably going to have a tough time keeping this thing charged if they are using the phone a lot during the day. 2.) Control Center Location - This isn't huge for me, but it is a bit annoying, esp. one handed, to drag down the new control center. All in all a great device and anybody who is on the fence should go check one out on display at The Apple Store.
