iPhone X - what are your reviews after a few weeks?
What are your thoughts and reviews of the features? Worth the $$? I have a three year old IP6 that is glitch as hell so it's time to upgrade.
Tmobile had a $300 rebate on X purchases, but I seem to have missed that. Anyone anticipate other holiday deals on the X?

go to an apple store & play with one.

i found it to be extremely 'meh' in the few minutes i screwed around with it.

i'd go for an iPhone 8 series if i was in the market and wait for iphoneX v2 to come out.

The notch surprisingly didn't bother me, but the bar at the bottom and displaying and clipping textual content in the rounded bottom corners did. That said, the X makes all the prior iPhones seem "wrong" somehow. It's an impressive device.

Agree. I'm holding on to my 7 until the next generation comes out at least. It's been a couple of weeks since I saw the X, and thankfully, my 7 is back to feeling normal again.

Phone is great. Got used to it in about 30 minutes.

I paired it with the AirPods and the new Apple Watch and I couldn't be happier. My wallet on the other hand...

Best Iphone to date. Wife has an 8+ as a comparison.

Screen as large as a 8+ without the girth.

Face ID is a game change along with it's integration into apps that prior could be accessed via thumbprint.

re: iPhone X - what are your reviews after a few weeks?
I’d say buy it if you can swing it. Fotunately my company is grandfathered in the old subsidized 2yr plans, they pick up the monthly bill & it only cost me $450 for the phone. I came from a 6 which became frustratingly slow & the battery would drain by mid day everyday. The X battery lasts all day long with moderate use. Apps are extremely responsive & quick. Took literally no time to get used to no button and the new gustures. Face ID for the most part works great, but is a little frustrating sometimes when it doesn’t respond, that’s really the only negative thing I have to say about the X.

It's a decent device. Getting it through the Apple upgrade program makes it more palatable, IMO. The facial recognition works fine and it took me less time than I anticipated to get used to not having a home button. The biggest positive for me is a slightly smaller device while not really losing screen real estate. For me, it was worth it to make the switch.

re: iPhone X - what are your reviews after a few weeks?
Biggest complaint for me is still the app switcher/closer. Not a big fan having to hold to swipe apps away. Overall I like the phone, very good battery and 11.2 has been rock solid for me.

I like face to unlock, but I really hope they work out Touch ID into the screen. There are times I would really like to have access to certain features without having to look at the phone.

Got mine last week. My Verizon rep was able to get it for me for $349 on our business account. I came from a 7 plus and I am impressed with the speed, size and facial recognition. I have found where I had dead spots before the X is a little better in getting a better signal as well.

Note 8 is the best phone out but the iphone x is easily the only iphone worth owning. The notch is probably annoying but it has a good screen and elite performance. Best iphone ever

People bring this up constantly and I've never once thought, man, that thing is really annoying. But I guess people have to come up with things to complain about (not saying you specifically are.)

Yep.

re: iPhone X - what are your reviews after a few weeks?
I have had an X since Friday. I came from an LG G5. It takes some getting used to, but I like it. My G5 had an incredible camera, this one is better. Text messaging is great. Internet and WiFi is faster. Phone calls is more difficult to switch to keypad, contact, etc.

My biggest complaint, I cannot start to type in a contact's name and have the number auto populate. I absolute hate that.
