small rant because i cannot sleep

iphone x is great fast, screen, all over good, actually great

most of these threads which i am tired of stalking are problems you subjectively have with the phone

oh looks too delicate
oh this ohh that
touch id i miss it its a step back no it is a step forward

like its a perfect phone..wireless charging, oled screen

oh it is too fragile

these are not even problems with the phone

yes it has some teething problems overall i think it is the best phone on the market

apple always kills it

I wouldn’t call it perfect. It’s arguably the best iPhone ever made, but that doesn’t make it perfect. There are massive threads about speaker cracklings, yellow/green/pink tinted screens, unresponsive Face IDs, etc. It’s great that you’re enjoying your phone. I am too. However, that does not mean everyone else has to reciprocate our feelings or that their complaints are necessarily unwarranted.

Sorry man...the X does and is still coming with some issues.

They range from Cosmetic hardware right into Screen issues, battery issues, actual build issues.

This is common with all new devices, and yes if you get a good one...well your good and of course lucky.

However the phone is not without its headaches. I've gone through 3 replacements and I'm on my 4th, and all are issues I didn't create. So I'd have to say enjoy your phone and don't be so quick to judge the issues others are having.

In the middle of several books.
OP, your "rant" is filled with nothing more than logical fallacy. Ascribing fault to the user just because you disagree with his or her opinion, is the classic definition of logical fallacy. While many opinions on the new phone are subjective, some are in fact hardware or software related. And as such, said problems warrant objective discussion. Problems arise when various forum members like yourself engage in the same kind of mental thinking you have in this thread.

If you have a problem with reading the numerous threads on the same subject, do yourself a favor and stop doing that. It will save you a lot of inner frustration. You can't rightfully blame the forum at large for you being your own worst forum influence (re: continually reading posts you know you have a problem with properly compartmentalizing).

The X rocks. Sure, like every phone, the X is not for everyone, and that’s totally fine. But I do feel like a good portion of the naysayers will eventually realize that they’ve been missing out on an outstanding phone.

The X sucks for unlocking when it's rested on a flat surface. TouchID is much better for that use case.

When holding, the FaceID has a higher success rate for me than TouchID.

But that's the trade-off for technology, it's Won't be perfect in every single situation and both have disadvantages/advantages , but Face ID overall, will Eliminate most issues that touch ID did have.

Just train it (by entering your passcode after failed recognition). Mine unlocks on my desk.

I love my X but can’t argue with this...so true that’s the only thing I miss about Touch ID.

Are people actually using their phone while it’s sitting on a flat surface?! And If you are don’t you have to lean over it to use it so you can actually see the phone or eventually pick it up to start using it? Not sure what advantage you get by unlocking it while its sitting flat on a table or counter.

You're right. The problems are about me:
-I don't like that it won't fit comfortably in many of my pants pockets and requires me to get a man purse to lug it around.
-I don't like that all that 16x9 video I've been watching is now letter boxed.

Most problems with other people's problems are YOU, not the other person.

That is to say, the proper response to people having problems with the X or any other phone is, "it's too bad that you find that to be a problem. I don't", and resuming enjoying your phone while leaving others to enjoy or not enjoy theirs as they see fit.

Yes.

Believe it or not, when I get a text message, I can read it from the angle I'm sitting. My phone doesn't have a screen filter preventing me otherwise. The advantage you get is you can read it without having your face parallel to the screen.

I don't want to lean over to unlock the phone. Sometimes the FaceID doesn't trigger correctly when leaning over, then I have to pick it up, hit cancel from the PIN # screen, swipe up to scan my face again, and then hope it works. I probably have to do this 8 out of 10 times because leaning in with your face works abysmal at best.

Here's another use case: let's say I get a notification. I have to unlock my phone to read it, but I can view my phone from where I'm sitting at this angle. Why would I go thru the hassle to pick up my phone to read it? With TouchID, this was a non issue. With Face ID, I have to pick up the phone and go through the steps to unlock it.

Just train it (by entering your passcode after failed recognition). Mine unlocks on my desk.

With TouchID, you dont need to hit a 6 PIN # after a failed recognition. Yes, mine unlocks performing this as well, but it's annoying when you have to type 6 numbers over and over. Sometimes, I do turn off the FaceID/pin security just so I can unlock it faster, so people can't say "work around it".

But that's the trade-off for technology, it's Won't be perfect in every single situation and both have disadvantages/advantages , but Face ID overall, will Eliminate most issues that touch ID did have.

The only issue I've had with touch ID were wet hands. Unlocking was not much of an issue for me otherwise. I know many people like to rest their finger on the touch ID to unlock. It's actually just easier if you push the home button.

I'm not trying to argue against FaceID, I'm just pointing out what sucks about FaceID. I'm sure Apple will take in feedback from even its own employees to make this better in future iterations.

The user's fault? Isn't that who the phone is made for?

But I do agree. I remember reading about several people sending back their MacBooks because of a smudge or a speck. They had to do a close up shot with lighting from a dentists chair to get a photo of the flaw. To each their own I guess.

Bottom line for me is... It's a phone. Never seen so much back and forth over something so incidental. It's an appliance used daily, like a microwave.

Seems a like a minor inconvenience to me but if thats such a big deal to you just stay with the 6,7,8. Or learn to deal with leaning forward or picking your phone up from now on. When I lean forward face id immediately works I’m not even staring directly at it so I don’t have to lean all the way in.

Oh boy. Sounds like you're trying to convince yourself that the $1,200 shell-out was worth it.

But when Android phones did this years ago, it was bad right?
