Just setting up the X and notice there is no battery percentage. Why not? I liked having that

iPhone X have many design flaws IMO, Thats why I prefer the classic iPhone 8/8+.

The official story from Apple is that there's not enough room on the "ears" to display it...

Not necessary design "flaws"... but most definitely trade-offs and concessions... one must expect that sort of thing with a new design... but in time, Apple will get it sorted out.

You dont have to display the full contol center - you can drag it down just enough to see the percent then let it go again.

I do like that we no longer have Carrier logos... Apple has finally won the brand wars, maybe?

We did also lose Force Touch though - granted, I don't think I ever used it.

3D Touch isn't there at all?

For the most part they are just differences and usually not flaws.
Yeah the word flaw is a little too much. Its more like I dont like the changes that much. Like Face ID, did FaceID unlock the phone installtly or you can stay at the lock screen and it just unlock the phone? Also, no battery % unless you bring down CC and I dont like the new screen format as well.

It's a feature. They don't want you to become "anxious" while checking the battery remains...
