I didn't get one because I like being able to have it unlocked by the time I take it out of my pocket, and I'm a man so I don't wear gloves Plus I tend to leave it on the desk beside me and just rest my hand on the sensor to unlock and faff around with it. My gut feeling is I won't be able to do that with the X, as it's either going to stay locked until I put the code in (so takes longer) or it'll constantly be unlocked or unlocking itself (chewing through battery). True?
You get used to a bigger form factor quickly: I'm happily using a Plus with one hand now and that's bigger than the X.

Otherwise it's got the time and whether or not the location services are connected on the left "ear". The right one then has both cellular and wifi connectivity, plus the battery icon. And to be fair, the battery will go red at 20%, so it shouldn't be a complete surprise when it gets low.
Mr.Clark wrote:Interesting you say it's too big - I assume you're coming from a non-Plus model? Going to this from my 6S Plus is interesting, and not as bad as dropping down to an 8 non-Plus would have been.

It's called "Reachability".
Step 1: Navigate to Settings > General > Accessibility and turn Reachability on.
Step 2: Swipe down from the gesture bar in any open app or the bottom of iPhone X's home page.
Step 3: Perform the desired UI operation.
Step 4: To reinstate the fullscreen UI, swipe up from the gesture bar or bottom of the home screen. Alternatively, touch an area outside of the active UI pane.
Surprised that it wasn't, given that it was on on my previous phone. Pretty much all of my other settings transferred over.kingweed wrote:That should be on as default though, bloody apple always make things difficult.
