  • 00:00:04,049 --> 00:00:09,029 I definitely posted a lot during launch week and a lot of you guys who have subscribed for vlogs or cooking videos

  • More like, "What's happening!" but for most of you guys who know me, I'm sure you weren't surprised

  • I plan on doing the week with iPhone

  • But I felt like I had posted so many videos within a week that I thought maybe I would just wait and do it two

  • Weeks with iPhone so here we are, it's been about two weeks since I got the iPhone X

  • It really is

  • A beautiful device so the first week that I had it was basically filming and shooting and editing videos about the phone

  • So I didn't really feel like I got a chance to try it out and use it in sort of an everyday normal

  • Setting like I normally would so don't trying our testing week

  • We tried out a bunch of things. The first thing that we tried out that I didn't even share on my channel because my sister

  • post of the video is we did an underwater test, "Would face ID work underwater?" And number two, "Would your phone actually work underwater?"

  • And the answer is no. It doesn't. The screen doesn't work on water. Since this was our video

  • She volunteered to use her phone to do this test. Currently her phone is still working perfectly fine. The iPhone X is rated to be able

  • To withstand at least thirty minutes underwater, it's recommended that you don't go past 3.3 feet

  • Which thankfully the pool that we were in was about 3 feet cuz my sister dropped her phone, and we both like

  • It for him to be quite difficult to go underwater

  • Try to keep your eyes open while swiping up and trying to see if the phone is actually

  • Responding to your face in this test we did conclude that the phone does not work underwater

  • You weren't able to swipe up it also didn't recognize her face

  • We did have some difficulties with face ID trying to recognize each of us with sunglasses on in very bright conditions

  • so the reason for this is because if it's super reflective the phone is unable to see your eyes in this bright light and if

  • You have the attention awareness on, if it can't see your eyes

  • It's not gonna unlock your phone. The way that you can get around

  • This is turning off the attention to awareness so basically you won't have to look at your phone this does make face ID a little

  • Bit less secure so that means if somebody comes up to you

  • They can swipe up and unlock your phone with attention awareness on if somebody tried to do that to you

  • You would have to be looking at it for it to unlock

  • It has been a little bit frustrating when I'm outside walking my dog with my sunglasses on and it's super bright

  • And I'm trying to use face ID and it's not unlocking him, and he's pulling me super hard going to the bathroom

  • And then I'm trying to clean the bathroom up

  • But I'm trying to use my phone and unlock it and it's not working. So normally effectively

  • I'm going to be in a situation where I'm gonna have sunglasses on it's super bright

  • I do turn off the attention awareness, but for the most part,

  • I have been keeping it on because it is an extra layer of security. Other than that I've been pretty impressed with face ID I

  • Know a lot of people have been saying with they're having problems some of my friends. They're saying it's not recognizing me

  • It's taking too long

  • Even at first my sister was having an issue where it was taking a while to recognize her

  • And I think the reason for this is a lot of people when they first set up their phones

  • It says hey its face ID times, set it up. and you're kind of in a hurry you want to set up your phone

  • You're not really paying attention. You're just sort of moving your head around and I feel like that first set up

  • It doesn't get a really good read on your face. So if you are having this problem

  • I definitely recommend going back in

  • Rescanning your face and seeing if that helps. Another thing that I tried was what if I looked like a zombie, what if my face was uncompletely recognizable?

  • Well face ID recognized me. I decided to go all out

  • I had this incredible special effects makeup artist Dan Gilbert come to my house

  • make me look like a zombie and see, if we could fool, the face ID. Now one of the things that I read in the

  • Comments is a lot of you guys are

  • Suspect because you sent Justine during this whole process, you were unlocking your face from beginning to end, and the thing with face ID is

  • It learns your face. So perhaps this entire time that I was getting my makeup done I was unlocking my phone

  • Maybe the phone was learning my face throughout the whole process, which is of

  • Very very very very a valid point and that I don't really know

  • I don't know if that's the case. Now the reason that I decided to obscure most of the bottom of my face is because that

  • Previous day that I'd met Dan we did something for another shoot where I was a zombie

  • and I obscured most of my eyes and most of my forehead so I thought I've been unlocked with most of the top of my

  • Face I'm scared

  • It's gotta be something down here

  • One of the things that I did notice is that when you turn off the attention awareness is it's not actively seeking for your eyes

  • So it doesn't lock your phone a little bit faster, so again if you are having some issues with it unlocking slow

  • or it's out recognizing your face try turning that off try rescanning and

  • Let me know if that works for you. Going back to the sunglasses

  • I tested out probably like 15 to 20 pairs of sunglasses to see if they would unlock

  • But I was right here in a controlled environment where there's no sunlight, it's my studio light. So with that

  • I'm not having a lot of reflection so all those sunglasses worked indoors

  • But did they work outdoors and not so much

  • I also heard that people were saying if they are able to unlock their phone using their reflection in the mirror

  • Hmm, let's try it

  • It unlocked

  • Yes, it works! So it looks like face ID does work with a reflection of yourself in the mirror

  • Interesting. But it doesn't work with a printed picture of yourself. One of the things that I was worried about with this phone is because

  • It's so much smaller

  • And I was so used to having the plus size phones that I wasn't going to like this as much as I do

  • Surprisingly having a smaller phone is incredible

  • I can fit it so much easier into my purses, into my pants pockets, into my yoga pants

  • I've got like a little side pocket thing when I'm running or hiking or not really running

  • Closely if just walking the dog around the block

  • it's so great to not have such a

  • Massive phone like I previously did. So the form factor of the X is comparable to an iPhone 8 or any of those phones that

  • Are that size but the screen size is actually larger than the iPhone 8 plus. Which kind of puts this in the most perfect,

  • Sweet spot for the size of a phone. I know what you're saying, "What about the notch?" "Do you love it?"

  • "Do you hate it?" Honestly

  • I am not really sure, I feel like I'm kind of 50/50 because there are some times where I'm like man

  • Just don't trying to watch something and then as little notch is there and it's like why are you there just?

  • For then other times it does fit pretty seamless with apps

  • so I don't really notice it, but to say that I don't notice it all, I would completely be lying because

  • It's there, like I don't know how you

  • Can't see it like if you don't see this, then I don't know what you're looking at because it's there the knotch is there.

  • But if they were to remove the knotch, I don't think I would be upset at all

  • I think that I would be okay if it wasn't there

  • I mean I see why they have to have the notch here because there's really nowhere else to put it if they didn't put the

  • Notch there, then there would have to be some sort of a black bar up here

  • Just to house everything that is inside of this notch, proximity sensor, it has the true depth camera,

  • Speakers can't it's got so many things inside of that little notch today

  • I mean I get it, but how are they gonna get rid of it for the next phone, or are they not?

  • Or is this is this the new normal I?

  • Thought that I would be taking a ton of front-facing portrait selfies, but to be honest

  • I really haven't taken very many I guess in the past week

  • I've just kind of been playing call of duty, so that's really not something that's very interesting to take pictures of. Especially a front-facing selfie

  • My friend Joey said he's returning his iPhone X, No.1, because he wasn't a huge fan of the face ID and No.2, because

  • The camera quality was too good

  • And I a hundred percent get where he's coming from because when you take a front-facing picture now. I mean it sees everything

  • It's like, "What?!"

  • I've taken tons of photos of my dog

  • I've taken what if I had been taking pictures of I don't even know honestly since I got through the iPhone released week

  • I've basically been playing video games, and it's been great, so yeah, I'm looking through here

  • I haven't really done a whole lot the past few days

  • Here is a cute picture of

  • My baby boy doggy and his friend Yossi. Fires picture my wine fridge while that's really exciting

  • Oh, here's a picture of me and Alex Clark we did a fun video the whisper challenge video

  • And we unboxed a very fun the Star Wars Jedi Challenge game

  • What else are some wine, got a LAN party, more pictures the dog? Yeah, I basically have

  • Done a lot. So other than taking pictures my dog. I've been very very impressed with the new snapchat filters now granted

  • I don't

  • really use

  • Snapchat as much as I used to I feel like most of the time when I'm going to post something on snapchat

  • I end up just posting it on my Instagram stories

  • But I decided to hop into snapchat and test out to the face tracking features that they have now

  • With some of their face filters, and they are very very accurate. I was very shocked. Hey guys. How's it going?

  • I'm just shooting some videos here, but I was testing out a new snapchat

  • He's tracking on the iPhone 10

  • So like it's very very and it's like here's another one with glasses on like look at this like I move it and it does

  • I'm so impressed. I'm impressed. Oh yeah, this is

  • This is great

  • One thing that snapchat did right is get in early get the face tracking features and really implement that to the max on snapchat

  • Let's see what else have I been doing I mean the phone is obviously so much faster than the 7 although

  • I did kind of have that middle phone

  • I had the iPhone eight between the X so having the jump from the 8th to the X

  • Didn't really have an overall feeling of that much difference because both of those phones the insides are basically the same thing

  • Also the camera quality on the 8 is almost identical to the 10 being able to have the slo-mo options to go up to 240

  • At 1080 is pretty great although

  • I don't really use it that often

  • But I have found that I've been vlogging a lot more on my iPhone because every time I go to vlog

  • I either don't have my vlogging camera

  • Or the battery is dead and a lot of you guys didn't really notice a difference when I went from this to the other one

  • of course I can tell because I'm the one filming and editing and the front-facing camera on here is obviously not as good as the

  • 4k SONY that I used to film with, but overall the audio on this thing is great the video quality looks amazing. The photos look

  • Incredible almost too good and too realistic. The battery life,

  • I haven't really noticed

  • That it's been worse than the 8 or the 7 mostly because I'm always carrying around a movie, so I am unaware of

  • battery life ever

  • I don't know if it even gets close

  • To being read I'm plugging this thing in I've also really loved having wireless charging pad one by my bed

  • By my desk over there, and I even have this one over here, which has been my charger of choice the Mophie

  • Wireless charger, so I use this one of my desk and this one

  • I kind of just move around throughout the house wherever I happen to be and in my bedroom. I have the Belkin one

  • I'm not really sure why I decided to do that

  • I feel like I like the look of this one and it's a lot smaller than the Belkin

  • I have some white lamps in my bedroom, so I felt like the white matched a little bit better

  • But it really is nice. Just being able to roll over from my phone on the charger

  • I don't have to worry if it's plugged in or if the dogs gonna jump down and knock a cord off the bed

  • It's been pretty great so I know welcome

  • Justine to wireless charging why did the pixel to?

  • Decide not to do wireless charging. I'm so confused

  • I feel like they rushed the pixel to out just to be like here's our phone here it is

  • It's ready, but it wasn't it wasn't ready. I will say the front-facing pixel to portrait mode is really really good

  • I did a couple tests of that and I'll be doing a future video here

  • Hopefully very very soon of the note 8 the pixel 2 and the iPhone X doing a little photo comparison video comparison

  • I know a bunch of people have already done it

  • But I'm a little bit late either way even if I didn't do this video for you guys
