Without a physical Home button, the iPhone X relies on a swipe up from the bottom of the screen for that functionality, and has a horizontal bar to remind you of it. Unfortunately it stays there in some apps and can be quite distracting, as it changes color to always be noticeable against the background unless the app developer has addressed the issue. So while in some apps it will fade or disappear altogether, like in YouTube, it is still clearly present in others.
Battery life is a perennial concern for smartphone users as the technology always seems to be a step behind in delivering what each year's new hardware and software demand. The iPhone X, however, has a superb battery that easily lasts all day and more with moderate use. Even so, those who want more out of their batteries can go above and beyond the normal power-saving measures and tweak a few settings on iPhone X to get some more juice thanks to the handset's OLED display.
The iPhone X is longer than other non Plus-size iPhones by about .2 inches. On top of that, the Control and Notification centers are opened by dragging down from the top corners, which can make the task quite awkward, especially for those with smaller hands.
One of the most highly touted features of Apple's flagship phone, Face ID, is made possible by the iPhone X's new TrueDepth front-facing camera system. It senses features by projecting infrared dots in a known pattern and measuring the distance of each, thereby creating a topographical map of the subject. Rather than using this technology only for security, Apple had some fun with it and created Animoji.
iPhone X's Animoji feature allows you to create stickers from the Animoji by simply tapping the animoji (when you have the expression you want) and holding until you have "grabbed" it.
Now you can drag it up to the conversation and stick it anywhere.
