The fa... moreTotally agree I donÂ’t understand, itÂ’s about personal preference I use an iPhone SE it does what I need. What puts me off of Android is the updates IÂ’m not prepared to spend more than £500 For me it would be a waste of money and I always use a 6 digit pin to unlock my phone. I would never use Face ID or the finger print scanner. ItÂ’s all about peopleÂ’s choices
Amazing phone amazing quality just like every phone there is some drawback of course
- Not all apps are optimise for iPhone X at least not yet so itÂ’s so annoying to see two black bar at the top and bottom
- Without the Home button it can be troublesome to operate
- Orientation can be buggy when you want to rotate back to portrait mode
- Battery is not as good but acceptable
- Screen size is big but the viewing sizes seems smaller then the plus....
- The price, You can buy a s8 and a iphone 7
* Over all if you are upgrading from 6 or 6 Plus or doesnÂ’t mind paying a thousands plus dollars for a 256g then why not? ItÂ’s a great product for sure!

If 2 people jump out of a aeroplane with one person wearing a parachute and the other person did not. The success of the jump is not decided upon how quickly each person reached the ground below.
Anonymous, 12 Dec 2017Its getting hot when i use it. Its just like samsung.Its normal during charging, especially fast charge and using the phone whilst charging will certainly increase heat.
When you say it's like Samsung, are you referring to the S8's?
This article may also help.to.explain and cut down on heating up issues.
Battery life not great, as expected from iPhone,
it has a better Camera from another phone in this world now.

Apple x not as well as we thought. Home button is the breath of apple apple 8 is good but older design is not acceptable. Basically apple 8 should have apple x design. Then it would be surely popular at every where. iOS 11 firmware should be improve with give option for direct call in third party dialer. It's very annoying ask confirmation call. Sometimes it's not good. Hope apple will update it sure.
Luke MTECH, 10 Dec 2017IÂ’ve had the phone for over a week now and I will give an honest review. Is it my favorite IP... moreSeemed you are happy with the phone and you came across very honest. Thanks.
Yeah,.there is no doubt the IPhone X is not the best IPhone to as regards to its capabilities BUT it does have that notch,.it's not ideal.
The Board Room Discussion
R&D Guy - "We have the capability to introduce FaceID" but downside is, it going to take up a bit of room, and the latest trend is bezel-less design, so we either have the faceID but have bigger bezels at the top and bottom of the phone. Or, we delay the launch of FaceID and go with bezel-less." design"
BIG WIG - "But it's the 10th anniversary we need to come up with something different, we will also perhaps get bad press if FaceID is delayed and we just produce yet another bezel-less phone. ..Think people Think!!!"
Guy With idea : " I know, why don't we just cut out a bit from the display"
BIG WIG - "What like a great big whopping BIG, chunk JUST so that we can incorporate the FaceID? and still kind of say it's bezels-less?"
Guy With Idea : "Yeah"
Marketing Guy butts in - "Well it would stand out in the glossy magazine ads, and you would notice it from afar in a crowded room" ...... could be good for sales.... cha-ching..cha ching"
*They all laugh -in an evil way ... like villains in a Bond movie*
.............. The discussion continues in the boardroom and shortly after....
..... the IPhone X is born.
Duel, 10 Dec 2017"notice it all the time and itÂÂ’s especially annoying when trying to watch videos. "
... moreShame to not take full advantage of the gorgeous display though?
When you watch videos in this way (not full screen) The black bars at the top and bottom look like BIG HUGE BEZELS ....... The phone kind of morphs into something like the bezel'd IPhone 8 Plus or the Sony ZX Premium
..... but suppose thats cos the likes of the IPhone X, S8's are not 16:9 ratio.
Most of the time I watch full screen although admittedly some of the scenes in a movie or whatever just doesn't look right. You don't see the image as intended by the director. The edge of the image is missing. So I do miss out there :(
Hope to see a lot more video, tv, movies being made with the latest trend of 18: 5:9 ratios in mind. I much prefer a wider video, it's more pleasing on the eye. Games look better in my opinion when played in 18: 5:9

If you see it while watching videos you are doing it already wrong. If you go fullscreen it means your video goes out of the screen, and i'm not talking about what is behind notch. It looks like you are watching zoomed video, and in my opinion it looks very wrong.
So basicly you are looking cropped video.
IÂ’ve had the phone for over a week now and I will give an honest review. Is it my favorite IPhone ever? Absolutely yes. Through the last few years I though the phone had gotten a little too big and the new design I think has the perfect size. The oled screen is by far the nicest feature of this phone, it is absolutely gorgeous. The Face ID for me has worked nearly flawless and is very convenient. I have to be honest though an admit IÂ’m not a fan of the
notch. I think it takes away from nearly a flawless design. I notice it all the time and itÂ’s especially annoying when trying to watch videos. Overall, it wouldnÂ’t stop me from buying an overall great phone.

It doesn't cut out anything important it's called "safe area". Thanks to notch we have bigger screen in smaller compact size phone. And the notch makes the screen feel very big

But in fairness, it's there, I have other choices to unlock or whatever......
And the most important thing is ..... It didn't require a a significant proportion of the screen being cut out of it.....at least I have a screen without a notch. ... bad decision by Apple from my perspective ...I don't like it! ..... and for a number of reasons.
Surely even Apple fans, even real 'dye-in-wool' huge fans can see some downsides to this decision by Apple? Surely?
To Apple Fans I don't say that with any malice.... it's only what I'm thinking. I'm not here to wind you up. I'm genuinly coming to a mobile phone website to share my thoughts and to try and be open to other people's opinions.
I seek facts.
