iPhone X First Look and field test with Chase Jarvis


Article excerpt from CreativeLive Blog written by Chase Jarvis:

Yes, it’s true – I’m lucky enough to be strapped with one of the very first iPhone X’s to hit the streets (not in stores until next week), I just spent the past few hours running around NYC with a few creative friends.  With just a couple hours of daylight after I got the phone, I scrambled to capture a few photos and videos and then smashed together a quick video edit to share with you of my first experiences hands-on.

Quick summary on things that brought me great joy: the portrait mode is very good. And now it’s on the front facing camera too. I love that the portrait lighting settings behave like RAW files in that they can be applied after the moment of capture (if captured in live photo mode). Maybe it’s just because it’s new…I haven’t really wrapped my mind around it all quite yet. But the facial recognition is really impressive. Blazing fast I have had a few instances where it hiccuped on me and didn’t open immediately but that was rare. The OLED display is insanely good. The contrast is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. And the edge to edge / bezel arrangement is stunning. It somehow further humanizes the device. I feel like i’m holding my photos and videos…not a device on which to view them.

Is this device perfect?  No device is perfect. (Read more)
