iPhone X review: Apple is asking you to break up with the home button – The Washington Post
The iPhone X arriving in stores Friday isnt just a new design. Its a new relationship.Compared to your current phone, the 10th-anniversary iPhone is missing a key element: the home button. The whole front is just screen. You have to learn new gestures to operate it. Instead of scanning a finger to unlock it, now you stop and look at it for a second like youre taking a selfie. This phone recognizes you.Is the $1,000 iPhone X for you? Its no slam dunk. The zaniest new features, like the face unlock, mostly function as billed. Its slimmed-down big screen feels easier to hold than previous iPhones and its battery lasts two blissful extra hours. But this year, Apples also selling the cheaper iPhone 8 and 7 with nearly as much horsepower and a design complete with a trusty home button you already know.
