In addition to journalist Steven Levy's first impressions of the iPhone X, Apple recently invited a number of YouTube channels to try out the highly-anticipated device at a nondescript building in New York City.

Brian Farmer and Noah Thomas of lifestyle website Highsnobiety shared a five-minute video in which they demo Animoji, 4K video playback at 60 FPS, Face ID, front-facing Portrait Mode, wireless charging, and other features.


YouTube personality Mark Watson, known as Soldier Knows Best, praised the iPhone X's design and performance. He said the new swipe-up gestures for unlocking the device and multitasking will take some time to get used to.


BooredAtWork.com's executive editor Enobong Etteh said the iPhone X is one of the best looking iPhones ever. His video provides a side-by-side comparison of the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, along with hands-on time with Face ID and Animoji.


Sam Beckerman went to New York on behalf of Canada's FASHION Magazine for an exclusive hands-on look at the new iPhone X. The video recaps her 10 favorite features of the device, such as Face ID, Animoji, and ARKit.


Beyond the event in New York, a few other videos of the iPhone X have surfaced on YouTube today. We've embedded videos from French channel TheiCollection, Popular Science, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show below.




iPhone X pre-orders began on Friday, with shipping estimates now at five to six weeks for orders placed today. The device launches November 3, with limited in-store availability for walk-in customers on a first come, first served basis.

But still fired the engineer who's daughter posted the X video.
It's hard to believe you can't understand the difference.

The unauthorized video by the engineer with a non-disclosure contract's daughter showed internal Apple QR codes and meeting schedules and even if it didn't, it was a week ahead of Apple's strategic promotional schedule which is planned with military precision.

Do you really treat ethics so cavelierly in your own career?

Apple should give a handset to MKBHD for a review, not quite sure about the cringworthy top ten video.
