No idea who this girl is, but her Dad works at Apple and at 3:07 in this video he hands her the iPhone X to play with.

Nothing particularly new is shown but it’s interesting non the less!

I think that chick is a materialistic, celebrity worshipping idiot. That video did nothing but hurt Apple's image. They should reign in their employees and not let them give their idiot children prototype devices to make videos like that.

Prior to watching video: Harsh.
After watching video: Point taken.

If the wall she liked (in the most smug, disinterested manner) could talk, it'd tell her to get stuffed. :D

The more I see that notch in real world conditions, from the few other spy shot leaks and from this video, the less and less a big deal I think it is. I’ve gone totally from thinking it’s an unreasonably ugly design to thinking it’s a worthy trade-off for all the tech packed into it and maximizing the amount of screen space. Really doesn’t bother me at all in this video.

I made a similar comment in a previous thread earlier. I think once users actually have hands-on with this new iPhone, the Notch concerns will slowly fade away for those who may have been questioning it. And if Face ID is well recepted as Apple hopes, the Notch will even be lesser of an issue for some.

Lol. Can't work out if serious or trolling. It's a girl making a blog.

Jeez it makes the 8/S look dated. Looks great in general use. Although I've maybe changed my mind about colour now. The grey looks good with the dark edges. Can't wait.

Oh god, all these vlogs are the same! Same annoying music, same $hitty editing.

Aside from that though, the iPhone X works fine and I presume face ID worked well as he used it for Apple Pay. Before he holds it to the terminal you can see him holding the phone towards his face for a second :)

I love how her dad who works at apple pronounced the name as “ex”.

That was cool to see it being used in a real world setting. Any real hands on have all looked quite stunning.

The phone looked wide in her hands (home screen/Calendar), yet thinner when the old man held it (not just due to size of hands). Maybe just the angle she held it at the camera.

Didn't even notice the Apple Pay part first time.... To distracted/irritated by the host...

“I did not particularly enjoy the style of this video, so I will now proceed to sh*t on the creator and blame them for the downfall of America/the world/society!”

Anyway, I did like seeing it being used in a “real world” setting. Honestly I didn’t even notice the notch this time around. Just made me more excited to get one!

I think the kind of camera lens she had made the iPhone x seem wide.

OP, please edit with a time stamp of where people should watch from. Don't make others go through the pain I & others have had to endure. :(

Yeah I was thinking the camera/filming in that section stretched things a bit.

Probably a wide angle lens she is using. On the outer edges you'll get a little distortion. Fishey lenses are the worst

Nice! Imma have to make me a similar vlog shopping at a flea market and some thrift stores and whip out my iPhone 6s+ to pay for some nachos and hot dogs on a shopping break.

Worst part is, not her in particular, but some of these high profile vloggers make serious $$$. iPhone X looks nice though.
