Five annoying things about the iPhone X

Phones
[MUSIC] I've been living with the iPhone 10 for over a month now. I think it's the best iPhone and, heck, I think it's one of the best phones. I really like its design and I've come to appreciate its interface too. That doesn't mean that there aren't annoyances. And here are some of the ones that I still think are there, even after a month. These are the top five and what you can do about them [MUSIC] Mostly face ID just work but sometimes it doesn't and that can be annoying is hard to tell when that's going to pop up and that's the challenge, face ID works with a lot of thing that you put in your face including glasses, hats, bears, etc and it works in complete darkness. But distance factors in. So, if you have it really close to your face they say it may not register you. If you hold it further back it will. Also, make sure you're not covering your face. And you have to look at the phone more often than you'd normally would unless deactivated attention in the settings which requires you to look at your phone to unlock it. Also, if you wanna be able to unlock a little bit faster you should swipe up Before face ID is finished unlocking which seems to speed the process a tiny bit, or maybe thats just me. Basically your mileage may vary. The control venter is so hard to get to. My favorite feature in IOS, control center, which use to be a simple swipe up is now a swipe down from the top right corner of the iPhone 10. And I still haven't gotten used to it. It's hard to reach and even with reachability activated, which brings the iPhone screen down by half, it's still hard to get to. And you have to be able to use probably your other finger to control things like Bluetooth settings or Wi-Fi. But remember, user controls can pop on automatically on the lock screen when music is playing And there's a flashlight button on the lock screen and I guess you could also take advantage of widgets by swiping over which take care of some other shortcuts, too. [MUSIC] What happened to my battery life percentage? The iPhone X display has a notch on top which actually doesn't bother me much after a month. It doesn't cut into most apps. However, It does cut into the amount of information you're gonna get at the top of your display. That factors in for things like battery life percentage, bluetooth connectivity, or whether your phone's in do not disturb mode. To get that, you've got to swipe down for control center from the top, those pop back up. But otherwise you're in the dark. Can we please have an iOS update that brings that back? How do you restart your iPhone 10? That is a good question. In case your phone freezes, you're probably gonna wanna know. It's kind of like the Konami code now, you've gotta press up, then down on the volume button, then press and hold the side button until the phone restarts. Used to be a lot simpler and if your phone freezes you're probably not gonna remember that code. So write it down somewhere or remember it, plus it still pretty wierd that turning of the phone and holding it for to long could actually trigger an S.O.S. that calls 911. The line. Now the iPhone 10 has a great way of navigating on the bottom of the display for flicking away apps and for multitasking. It works really well, except that there's now a bar that shows up in just about all apps. That's supposed to indicate you're able to swipe there. I don't really need it, but you can't get rid of it. Worse, it sometimes cuts an app's layouts. When you play a video, the line generally disappears. But with some apps, it still shows up. And landscape locked apps make that line shift to the side of the iPhone so instead of swiping up to get rid of the app, you're going to have to swipe from the side. It's strange, it's very strange. All that being said, the iPhone 10 is brand new, and odds are the future updates of iOS are going to address a lot of those quirks. Overall it's great It's just that there are certain parts that are a little bit annoying, just like me. [MUSIC]
