The UPS Man arrived with my iPhone X a little after 11 AM this morning, and I have been messing with it ever since. That is both a good and a bad thing. It’s good in the fact that the phone itself feels great in the hand, is buttery smooth in use, and that Face ID seems to work great, in spite of all the reservations that some, including myself, had about it beforehand. It really is an absolutely fantastic piece of hardware that feels premium as an object in a way that the original iPhone and the iPhone 4 did when first released. The iPhone X feels like more than just a phone in the hand. More on this later.
