Been using my iPhone X since last night.
Pretty cool phone. Love the camera and the screen.
The size is just perfect as well, coming from an iPhone 7.

It's a great phone to flex in front of the ladies. I show off the clips app where it uses the true depth sensor to make it seem like you're somewhere else or make you look like an animated character.

Haha you’re right.
I’m going to test it out at the club this weekend

Yeah, showing off my phone makes all the ladies wet. They let me feel their bags of sand. #ClubbinLyfe

I am still of a very strong train of thought that face id is a marketing gimmick that was made to make the phone sell at a premium. While it works well, I think its simply not needed. The idea below was what I had envisioned and would have removed 100% of the concerns of face id-

I believe I remember reading that they couldn't get that to work properly so they fell back to the Face ID so as not to delay production even further.

I think the phones might be coming sooner. I had a Dec backorder date but mine showed up on Monday. As for functionality, I like face ID better than touch ID. Overall, the phone gets my nod of approval.

Someone at Apple commented that they were never looking at a fingerprint reader under the screen for the iPhone X

which is a bad idea bcuz that would have been truly revolutionary and much more usable

It will probably be called iPhone 11. I heard about the plus version, that will be nice. Haven't heard about the LCD version, that will be an interesting option, probably a new base model with less/slower memory as well. I would be interest in a iPhone 11 plus with the same form factor.

"The News". I guess that is appropriate given the state of the news lately.

I heard an investor report from one of the manufacturers that mentioned a larger OLED screen. Where you are getting the LCD part from I have no idea. The fact that people automatically assume it is the next iPhones and they are the next X versions is quite comical to me.

This is what I was thinking also. Once they removed the physical button and made it a haptic button I thought it was the first step towards full screen iphone with some kind of digital home button right on the screen.

The face id is actually what I dislike most about the iphone x.

I'm assuming the lcd model will be the screens before the x just add the face recognition and other features, idk about memory as that's not a big deal these days. I'm assuming 64 is standard.

If this is being priced around 649 what's the older models going down to? And the 8's

You'll need to update your iOS to get rid of the question mark.
