£999 for the base version, yeah I think I'll stick with my S8 for now - It really doesn't seem to have enough to justify that price (even with Apple tax).

Assuming I can actually pre-order one on launch day (haven't failed so far, but you never know...) I'm in for an iPhone X 256GB (space gray)

Very excited! Subbed.

Looks like a good phone.

Why's it pronounced iPhone 10 and not iPhone Ecks though? Surely the next iteration of this is the iPhone X2.

The problem with FaceID for purchases is that with touchID, you can quickly abort if you lift your thumb. If I change my mind now, what, I have to spin my phone around?

Also, as many have said, what about those cases where my phone is flat on a desk etc?

Didn't work on the first attempt. Worked on the next 3 or 4.

Not unlike touchID.

Really want the OLED screen, but at that price, with no Touch ID and that UGLY notch? Ugh. I want to upgrade this year, but might just wait or get the 8 now.

The first demo phone was restarted and would've required him to type in his password so he used the backup phone that worked as expected right away.

I still find it weird they didn't use the Apple logo as a finger print sensor, it's perfect for it and in a decent location.

It took a target price of $1000 to get an edge to edge screen and it still doesn't match the thinner bezels of its cheaper competitors.

I admit I was never going to be in for a model this expensive, but the way the top section cuts into the display is quite shocking. It was unbelievably distracting when they demo'd pictures and video. Would've been better to have a solid divide all away across the top instead of jutting in as it does.

"We wanted the phone to be all screen"

"Our goal since the beginning was to make that"

"That's why we made the phone all screen"

*show screen being clearly overshadowed by distracting, ugly, big overlayed top speaker/camera/whatever*

Are they deliberately mocking people at this point?

No, it did not. You people need to pay attention. If you had, you would've seen the system asking for the code for the initial Face ID setup.

To the X? no. Maybe next year, but I doubt it.They're pushing NN and ML hard, X is likely going to be the trial run.

iOS devices require you to enter your passcode when you restart the device, hence the reason why it didnt work

Very unApple like to make the cutout in the front to not match the color on the back of the phone. Very disappointed on that front. But aside from that the phone looks great. I'll definitely be picking some up.

I have. It didn't work and asked for the code because it couldn't identify him. Same as when Touch ID fails.

No it didn't. It said the device had been restarted and needed passcode to enable face id.

I think this to, I much prefer the bit of bezel at the bottom to avoid the ugly cutout at the top (just like in the essential to).

Same rear cameras as the 8 and no TouchID means no sale at that ludicrous price
