REVIEW

Just like the iPhone 7, we tried to love it, we really did but.

The box is smelly. The bezels are HUGE now 4.2mm up from 3mm of the iPhone 6s!

With Touch ID you could have more than one finger print to unlock the phone - eg. share it with your partner, with Face ID, you just have one face, and if that doesn’t work you need to wait over 2 seconds each time to be prompted for the pin.

Animoji is FUN AF! But, isn’t it just Talking Tom with all the in-app purchases unlocked?

The screen is weird.

The back camera is EXACTLY THE SAME AS the one in the iPhone 6s. 4k 60fps is buggy. The front face camera has improved but still suffers from stabilisation issues.

It’s faster.. but you won’t notice a difference if you’ve got at least an iPhone 6s.

You really need to have it wrapped up in a heavy duty case, because it’s flimsy AF.

After all that hype having to stay up to midnight for the pre-order sale, it was a big disappointment. But, at least we get our AUD$2128 back!

Did you keep yours?

THOUGHTS?

The quality of the iPhone X was very good, both the front and back camera has improved over the iPhone 6s, and the wider angle on the front camera is a must. That being said, I couldn’t really tell the difference between the front cameras in good lighting. Also, what surprised me the most is that even though the camera now features image stabilisation, the iPhone X and 6s were both very shaky when compared to the Samsung and Panasonic.
