I thoroughly enjoyed this format. In fact, this type of reviews would matter more to any phone buyer. Keep up the amazing work. Cheers!
I honestly still can understand how is possible that someone could have spended even a penny in this phone. Perhaps it's because it's the most expensive that Apple has... I see it absolutely horrendous from any angle. If this is the base for future Apple's phones, don't count with me.
It would be interesting to know if Apple did a survey among its customers to promote this tacky design above other candidates.
Revert means going back, no need to say revert back. (Last page)
And liked the long term review, good job. The points mentioned under annoyances I completely agree with, especially face ID being less practical than fingerprint reader.
People have to remember that this is Apple's first attempt with this phone design, so of course it has major/ a lot of flaws. You don't buy the first product, you wait for the 3rd or 4th. This is when the company knows what its doing.
IÂ’m using the X since release and i will never return to touch ID, for me FACEID always works, the only time it doesnt work is when im in my bed.
The screen is absolutely gorgeous, with the right colors all the time.. I have the true tone setting turned of since the release because it makes the screen yellowish, but when my girlfriend uses my X she always puts on true tone because the normal setting hurts her eyes(she has a lazy eye).
The notch is there, but after a while you just dont see it anymore, i even start to like the notch because its different from all phones(except Essential ofcourse).
Also the gestures are the best, people claiming that closing down the apps are a pain in the ass, yes it is. But why the f*** would you close apps on an iphone when iOS puts them in a hibernation after a while. Closing and restarting the app uses more power than just keeping it Â“openÂ”, even apple claimed thats better for your battery life.
For me this iPhone is by far the best iPhone iÂ’ve ever had. ( iÂ’ve owned the 3GS, iPhone 5, 6 Plus and came from the 7 plus when upgrading to the X.
"On other occasions, when relying on raise to wake to activate the screen, the screen doesn't wake up quickly enough, so you decide to push the power button, but just as you do, the screen wakes up, and the result - your pressing of the power button turns it off instead. Total disaster. Happens more often than we thought."
Why would you press a power button when iPhone X has tap to wake? If you use power button to wake up your screen, it means you still have to move your finger to swipe to homescreen, so why you just don't tap the screen and your finger is already closer to make the swipe up gesture?
Personally i don't like to press any physical buttons with phone and X removed that, i very rarely have to push any physical button, new swipe gestures works great, makes the user experience very smooth. Before X i hardly never used app switching, but with X it became second nature just by swiping from bottom, it's so fast to jump between recent apps.
Interesting review, but I am not exactly sure what the benchmarks are. I love my X. After a few days I think it's a much better experience than the Edge it replaced, with better camera and less bugs. Voice recognition on the Edge had become worse over the last year and sometimes it doesn't even react to voice commands, while the iPhone is faster and much more accurate. I also really like the face recognition, it works perfectly for me.
