We operate a pretty strict food chain of phones here and my daughter’s iPhone had started to become old and unreliable so it was time for my old iPhone 6 to trickle down to her.
I went into the Apple store determined to be sensible and came out with iPhone X. By comparison, the other phones just felt primitive. To my surprise the gesture based system just works really well, the absence of the home button is no problem and I’ve never enjoyed the feel of the haptic home button. The ‘all screen’ design is fantastic and immersive.
