We all discussed about it millions of times that performance is just what, apple left in their smartphone; thanks to apple powerful chip. After Steve Jobs innovations don't start with an iPhone anymore. After so many years, competing with android phones apple finally introduced something cool in their recent flagship iPhone X. Not only with a simple edge to edge design the iPhone X do comes with a notch in top of the front panel. But do apple's magic still remains or not ?

We saw some written pieces and several hands-on videos by YouTubers, and we’re today seeing some more first impressions pieces by writers who were apparently given their iPhone X models just one day ahead of their embargo time …

Business Insider India's Hollis Johnson Stated some points.

• I've been testing the iPhone for a little less than a day.
• Overall, I enjoy the design and the new, larger screen. And I don't miss the home button at all.
• Despite some of the concerns over Face ID, it works flawlessly.

Steve Kovach opens his piece by stating that he’s been testing it for a little less than a day. That was, he says, enough to sell him on the device.

High points for him were the new design, the OLED screen and the performance of Face ID.

"The iPhone X is a refreshing redesign. After over three years of essentially the same look, it’s nice to see Apple make something radically different again."

"The best part is the screen. At 5.8 inches, it’s slightly larger than the iPhone 8 Plus screen, but on a body that’s only a little larger than the iPhone 8. For everyone avoiding the plus-sized iPhones because of their surfboard-like construction, the X will strike the perfect balance. The X’s screen is stunning, almost as if it’s painted onto the phone."

"In my short time with the iPhone X, Face ID has worked well. It unlocks the phone quickly in low light, bright light, the dim light of Business Insider’s video studio, and even in a pitch-black closet."

Nilay Patel at The Verge says he was also given less than 24 hours, and is similarly impressed with the display.

"The screen is bright and colorful and appears to be laminated tighter than previous iPhones, so it looks like the pixels are right on top. Honestly, it does kind of look like a live 3D render instead of an actual working phone."

"There’s a tiny sharp ridge between the glass back and the chrome frame that I feel every time I pick up the phone. That chrome frame seems destined to get scratched and dinged, as every chrome Apple product tends to do. The camera bump on the back is huge; a larger housing than the iPhone 8 Plus fitted onto a much smaller body and designed to draw attention to itself, especially on my white review unit. There are definitely going to be people who think it’s ugly. But it’s growing on me."

" [The notch is] ugly, but it tends to fade away after a while in portrait mode. It’s definitely intrusive in landscape, though — it makes landscape in general pretty messy. Less ignorable are the bezels around the sides and bottom of the screen, which are actually quite large."

" Apps that haven’t been specifically updated for the iPhone X but use Apple’s iOS autolayout system will fill the screen, but wacky things happen: Dark Sky blocks out half the status bar with a hardcoded black bar of its own, Uber puts your account icon over the battery indicator, and the settings in the Halide camera app get obscured by the notch and partially tucked into the display’s bunny ears. It almost looks right, but then you realize it’s actually just broken."
