Now that you have an iPhone X, what is the very first thing you will do with it?

After you break open the box and set it up, whether a fresh install or from a backup, what's the first thing you will do with your brand spankin' new iPhone X? ex. take a picture, send an animoji, play a game, do a drop test for a Youtube video, be the guy/gal that flips it immediately on ebay or the likes, log onto Facebook and show off to friends, use apple pay and buy accessories with it, caress and kiss it or hopefully not be the klutz and drop it once you open the box lol. The results are endless. You will always remember what you did first with your iPhone X.

I will take a picture of all the iPhones I own that are laying on my Macbook Pro. This is will be first thing I do with my new iPhone X.

I think I will just leave it unopened in it's box for a few weeks just to anger all those who preordered and didn't get it on the 3rd.
Getting mine Friday morning.

I'll spend some time getting used to the new gestures (which will probably take all of 10 minutes), then I'll play with the new video settings (1080p @240FPS and 4K @ 60FPS).

I'm pretty excited to try out Animoji. I feel like it is one of those things that looks really cool in demos, but will be outright magical once you are using it yourself.

LOL... I have to update immediately to the beta software, so that my backup can be loaded properly. Then try and re-pair two apple watches with it.

Shaving your beard off will just prompt for your passcode, which then updates your FaceID for no beard.

Unless 11.1 comes pre-installed. Then you won't have to worry about it.

5: install minimum applications that designed for X

6: make adjustments from the “setting”

7: gonna try 4G/WiFi internet speed

8: gonna try out Netflix HDR & audio experienced

Just when I thought we might be running out of riveting topics.

Up next is...

What is the 9th to last thing you will do with your phone on the second Thursday after you get the iPhone X and what is your blood type?

Lol I always forgot what’s my blood group - that’s good idea to setup medical ID after 9th step - need to check with GP ;)

I’m pretty sure that my blood group is very common !
:D

Definitely going to take a walk around town and snap some photos. Permanently switch the camera app to 4K 24fps mode (finally, Apple) and shoot some footage using the OIS telephoto lens and see how that all is - then install Filmic Pro, shoot in LOG and see how the footage holds up to a color grade in post.

I'm a photog and cinematographer so this is what I'm most pumped about aside from the display and multitask gestures. How much better has my pocket save-my-ass-in-any-situation camera gotten?
