I love tech. I love the web. I love building successful products and teams. I work at ASOS doing all these things (but these opinions are entirely my own!)

I have a couple of older phones and tablets I want to dispose of. All over 3 years old. How does one do this in the most sensible way? Do charities want this old stuff?

Is there such a thing as an apple watch charging stand with a QI charger for your iPhone also built into it?

Thanks for that update. Great feature :) I have this happen to me once a week at least (worse on the iPhone X when I try and open control centre)

My Apple Watch can unlock my Mac but cant be used as “biometric” authentication for other apps. 🤔

Battery is the same size. It has to be the screen. I have always thought OLED was more power hungry in average use. Dark modes help, but LCD is just so efficient.

I made a small change to my Apple account - removed a device I don’t use. Since then I have had loads of weird login notifications and been asked to relogin on all my Apple devices and iMessage went a bit weird. Come on you can do better. This is user hostile.

It is. A lot! But the combined lot isn’t doing it for me.

Was great to see you live again. I’ve seen you play four times now and you’ve never lost when I’ve been there 😊

I wonder how much the smart invert helps. I tried it but not sure it’s for me.

Out of interest, do you generally use apps in some sort of dark mode or with dark backgrounds etc? I don’t. The relative battery drain I am seeing feels like its when the phone is on standby too which suggest a badly behaving app potentially. To sum up: battery life is hard

Those usage stats are hard to interpret as not all usage is equal. I am finding it noticeably worse than a plus sized iPhone which I guess is the only fair measure for an individual?

The iPhone X battery is a bit of a shocker coming from a + sized iPhone. The battery is as big as a + but with noticeably less endurance. It’s enough that when travelling I might need a battery case. OLED is a much bigger draw on power than LCD on average. No doubt about it.

Really cool review of the iPhone X on I think more Apple focussed sites should publish content about other platforms. Shame about the first few comments tho. Is there an Android equivalent of Apple focussed podcasts? Gruber/Relay/ATP…?

I love when people say it’s the same as on the S8

I’ve tried to make this work and couldn’t. Are there any steps to take?

iPhone X screenshots look comically tall (aspect ratio wise), but the phone in real life feels and looks just right.

I do believe that the advent of 280 character tweets is a very nice progression, a move forwards and a genuinely positive change for the platform. It will take some time to get used to and some people will abuse it but in time we will look back at 140 as outdated and too limiting
