I thought I might give you my impressions thus far, after using my iPhone X for the past 8hrs, here in Australia.. I’ll start at the very beginning. I pre-order last Friday through the Apple store app, and within 2 minutes of pre-orders going live, I had secured my iPhone X 256gb in Silver for launch day, 3rd November. I choose the collection option from my local Apple store with an early morning half an hour window (8:00 – 8:30am) to pick up the newest edition. I arrived a little prior to 8am this morning and yes there was a line, but I went straight to the front of the pre-order collection line.. I was extremely lucky, through the whole pre-ordering and collection process, it was as smooth as I could have ever hoped. I had my iPhone X in my hands by 8:10am, and was off to set it up. The iPhone X is a stunning phone, coming from an iPhone 7 Plus, the first thing I noticed in hand was obviously the size of the X. It felt like I was holding an iPhone 7/8 and every time I picked it up, it is noticeably smaller and differs to how my 7 Plus felt. Super Retina display: For me, the name says it all. It’s a super beautiful display, with colours popping from the OLED, it is a welcome addition and makes the X a stand out for myself. I can’t wait to play back some 4k, just to really see how it does perform! Interface (and no home button): The first few times I held the X, I was reaching for the home button, to go home or multitask. Now, with a quick and easy swipe from the bottom of the screen up, I have found that I have already basically forgotten about the home button. Multitasking via swiping (left-to-right) at the bottom of an open app is fast and convenient. I might now take the time to mention how fast this thing really is.. The iPad Pro 10.5” was the quickest iOS device out there for me (that I had used previously,) but now we have a new winner. The X is very quick, blazingly quick, making the experience enjoyable and a noticeable upgrade from my 7 Plus. The notch: I have found that it is definitely noticeable, its black, and it stands out when you’re in apps such as Instagram, notes etc.. It isn’t too bad though, and I expect it to be something that I will get used to, hopefully quickly. Most apps have now accommodated for the notch which is great to see. Face ID: easy to set up, however has been a little hit and miss for me so far.. It hasn’t been as reliable as Touch ID was on my 7 Plus. Little things such as if the iPhone is on a desk (by your side,) and you want to open it - eg to look at an iMessage, I use to be able to rest my thumb on the 7 Plus, and it would open up, now I am finding myself physically picking the iPhone up, and having to unlock it, making it a much longer process. Instead, you can choose to enter the passcode to save having to pick it up, however I find little things like this nowhere near as quick/easy as Touch ID was – something I will have to get use to. I also don’t like how to unlock the iPhone, you have to swipe up..hopefully something Apple can make optional in a later Ios update Animoji: One word, fun. Not sure that I will use it often at all, but at the moment it’s a novelty and good fun to play with. Charging: Wireless charging works well, I like the fact that I do not have to plug my phone in, I can just rest it on the charging pad. I have also been charging it via a 29w MacBook charger, USB C to lightning cable, and boy does this thing charge fast! A MUCH-welcomed addition for those times where you don’t have long to charge your phone before you duck out. Camera: Can see a solid upgrade here coming from the 7 Plus, however I have not played with either front or back camera much at all, so I won’t make too much comment here on the cameras (sorry.) Holding it case-less the iPhone X feels extremely nice, I don’t find it too slippery and feels a very solid device. I am currently running a Belkin glass protector on the front (fitted by Apple,) and also a black silicone Apple case. Glass screen protector hasn’t been a nuisance yet, well..no more then it was on my 7 Plus. I can’t afford to run without a glass front protector, and it has saved me numerous times in the past. The Apple silicone case is as I have come to expect (having had one for my 6 Plus and 7 plus.) There was a reason I was always going to buy another for the X. I really think that the silver model looks premium, the stainless-steel sides look amazing (hopefully don’t scratch too easily) and the iPhone is just something to look at and appreciate. I had a quick look at the Space Grey model in store, and it too was very nice, however for me, I am happy I went with the Silver option. Conclusion: I think this is the iPhone I have always wanted, the design is beautiful, the display is as equally beautiful, and the internals of this thing make it the flagship iPhone that it is. I do hope that the future holds a plus sized model of the iPhone X, having used plus models for the last few years now, I am use to the size, the grip and how it feels in the hand. I can’t see a reason for Apple not to bring out a plus size option next year, and I think that many previous iPhone 6/7/8 Plus users will agree. Sorry it isn’t a too "in-depth review," I thought I would quickly write something up. Please note, this is my impressions from using the iPhone X for the last few hours, I am sure others will have varying hands on opinions. Cheers.
