The owner needs to give it a wee clean!

What are your impressions of the iPhone X, Mike? I won't be getting one. The idea of face recognition does not appeal to me at all. Seems very impractical. And the notch thing would annoy me a lot.

I like the X Dallas, face recognition works well, even when I’m wearing a hat and scarf, not perfect but 95% good, and when it infrequently falters the pass code kicks in. The notch is not a problem as it gets ignored. The new swipe gestures need to be learnt, but again do not cause any problems! The X is a lot faster than my old iPhone  7. 

 

I’ll admit it was an indulgence, but it was my Xmas present to myself. :D

Hmmm... That's a big problem for me when I'm driving because I use the phone on a dashboard mount for my music, so if I need to skip songs I don't want to have to punch in a code. Siri doesn't work too well in that regard either. I hope they haven't built in any "planned obsolescence" in my 7 Plus because I will be using it for a long time. :)

I’m sure I’ve seen a video of a driver using face recognition whilst driving, doesn’t apply to me of course. :D

 

I have a redundant Apple leather iPhone 7 case for the cost of postage if you want it?

I was going to edit my last post, but the edit button has disappeared?

 

The colour of the case is midnight blue!

Thanks Mike, but I have an iPhone 7 Plus. :) I will investigate the edit button disappearance a little later on. I'm almost out the door on the first shoot of the year.

Thank you Anthony, as I said sheer indulgence! The techy members of my family are green with envy. He He
