    Type quickly with one hand.

    Switch between apps with a swipe on the bottom of the screen.

    Definitely agree with the tie your shoes comment lol

    Unlock my phone when my hands are wet.

    Use it without a case. Glass is much more grippy than aluminum for my hands.

    Create animojis I️ guess.

    Wireless charge.

    Wipe down the fingerprints on the back and front obsessively.

    Place the phone in my front jacket (chest) inside pocket earlier this evening and it comfortably fits! The phone is so slim and small compared to the Plus model. I know it is narrower, and perhaps a hair thicker...but overall the footprint is greatly reduced. My 6s Plus on the other hand, could only be crammed into the pocket and then it looks like I'm wearing a singlet-breastplate! Like a huge rectangular platter on my chest. LOL.

    I spent at least an hour with my 6S Plus and my new X side by side with the screens displaying the same content - emails, web pages, different app screens (Music, YouTube, Netflix, News, NYT, various settings options) and the only screen reduction that impacts viewing/use is the slightly narrower screen. The useable screen height on the X is larger than I expected...and apps which are optimized for the X have more vertical space than the Plus model screens. So, what can I do?

    Marvel at the beauty, saturation, and total appearance of the OLED vs the LED. Having these two side by side on the same pages/apps, the LED screen reminded me of looking at a CRT screen when flat screens first became popular! I only really noticed the additional light and thickness of the glass on the LED when comparing it to the OLED. It is almost like looking at a beautifully printed/published page (on high quality paper!).
