iPhone X has already gone into pre-orders, becoming available November 3, and Apple is putting out all the stops to promote their new device, according to MacRumors. Several YouTubers were invited, even directly, to give an early review to help promote the phone and the videos are out here for you to enjoy already!
Brian Farmer and Noah Thomas of Highsnobiety were excited about “Animoji!”
These two were excited about becoming cartoons. As they said of the phone, “That was great! That actually ended really well! The colors were really nice, too!”
Soldier Knows Best even got invited to New York for this review!
Admitting that he wasn’t able to get playback on the display used, this review even personalized the phone, describing that “little bit of a receding hairline at the top of it.” The phones are also said to be easier to clean than other counterparts, especially with fingerprint stains.
Booredatwork.com even did a side-by-side comparison!
Comparing it to other phones side-by-side, the review claimed the iPhone X was one of the better-looking phones. Like with the other reviews, the Animoji was certainly popular.
FASHION Magazine came complete with a list!
On behalf of Canada’s FASHION Magazine, Sam Beckerman also got to travel to the event. Including a list of the top 10 aspects of the phone, do I even need to mention that Animoji was part of the group?
EverythingApplePro did a compare/contrast to the iPhone 8/8 Plus
In case you were “on the fence” over which phone you should end up buying, this review went through every similarity and difference. Is it important that one phone fits in your hand? They go over that!
If YouTube videos are not enough to win you over, just be patient. Official in-depth reviews will start coming out in the next few days as the iPhone X reaches its release date. We will make sure to update this post as reviews come out, including the major tech blogs out there!
The Verge bemoaned only having less than 24 hours to study the phone
“The iPhone X is clearly the best iPhone ever made. It’s thin, it’s powerful, it has ambitious ideas about what cameras on phones can be used for, and it pushes the design language of phones into a strange new place. It is a huge step forward in terms of phone hardware, and it has the notch to show for it. If you’re one of the many people who preordered this thing, I think you’ll be happy, although you’ll be going on the journey of figuring out when and how FaceID works best with everyone else.”
TechCrunch felt that getting a hand on the phone will just take some time
“There are some rough edges here and there. The notch isn’t for everyone, and the screen does have some color issues at extreme viewing angles. But overall Apple bet enormously big on a bunch of technologies all at once on the iPhone X and it delivered almost across the board. It really is like using the future of smartphones, today.”
CNET was reluctant to give a final word, but still felt the new phone was an improvement
“I think the X is in the sweet spot that the older iPhone sizes could never perfectly be. It’s a good-feeling phone with a nice, large screen. The shift to Face ID and the removal of the home button feel like changes that some might be fine with, and others will find unnecessary. I’m still learning the X’s design language.”
