MobileViews Podcast 229: iPhone X initial impressions. Guest: Sven Johannsen

I start off this podcast with a few Pixel 2 observations. Then, Jon Westfall and guest panelist Sven Johannsen take over with their impressions of the iPhone X after one day of ownership/user.

Sidenote: Take a look at this for the most amusing use of Animoji I’ve seen so far by Mia Harrison: And then we proceeded to waste half our day. #animojikaraoke #iphonex #queen #bohemianrapsody #carriedaway (Twitter video)

  1. Minor Pixel 2 observations.
    Swipe down on sensor turned off by default.
    Accessing all apps – swipe down on home screen instead of tapping an icon.
  2. Watch OS 4.1 update. Ref: ars technica. “The update brings a slew of promised features to the new Series 3 Watch, including Apple Music and Radio streaming support, GymKit compatibility, and a Wi-Fi toggle option in the Control Center.”

Available via Google Music Podcasts and Apple iTunes.
