    Hi there

    OK this may not seem important to many here, but having come from an iPhone 6 with no optical zoom, the camera quality improvement is incredible, you will have to excuse how dirty the car is as its not had a wash for over a month, but still:


    Without zoom:

    Using optical zoom:

    The improved quality and just how it seems to pick up similar shades and the optical zoom really keeps the clarity.


    Also the colours just seem more natural, much closer to life, really impressed. :)

    Love that feature, so much fun like measuring how big my wife’s butt is without her knowing :p. Thankfully with her obsession of yoga, her butt is still a nice handful.

    The only thing I don’t like about this phone is the poor reception. Was hoping it could be a firmware thing but think it’s a hardware issue now

    I’ve not had a problem with reception.

    Nice shots Gibbo, I came from a 6s plus and the camera is brilliant compared to that.

    Yes I was using a 6 previous, so the camera is for sure superior.

    Portrait mode is pretty cool, in Jamaica just now so got a few good shots of my son with it.

    Is there a way to swipe up an app and kill it rather than swipe up to hide then again to kill?

    Just swipe the app up and hold to get to the app switching screen. Then kill it from there

    I'm wondering if it's an iOS 12 thing, I have an X so a year old now and recently I've had a lot of dropped called. It'll come up on the screen and just say call failure and it'll show 1 bar or no bars, then straight away it goes back to 4 bars of 4g.

    Been playing a bit of Warhammer Realm War on mine, the AR stuff is pretty cool.

    This phone is amazing. The transition to gestures has been such a seamless experience.

    Really happy with the quality of the camera as well.

    I had accidentally done it a few times but it’s good to know how now.

    What network are you on?

    Do you see the phone switch to 3G for voice calls?

    It’s entirely possible that if your network doesn’t support VoLTE, it’s switching you back to 3G for voice calls (CSFB). Which sounds great until you find yourself in an area where you have good 4G service, but poor 3G service.

    First one had small gaps around the screen, rough edges around the thin plastic bezel and a tiny gap between the bottom and steel band I could fit the edge of a piece of paper in.

    Second one has a rough edge all down one side at the back where the glass doesn’t line up with the band. Sending that back Tuesday and will try my luck a third time.
