With iPhone X now in the hands of eager customers, many of the popular apps and games have been updated with support for the features that are exclusive to iPhone X, like the Face ID facial recognition system, the notch, the high-resolution Super Retina display and more.

While this is by no means an all-inclusive list of iPhone X-optimized apps and games, our own Andrew O’Hara has decided to take it upon himself to test for you guys how some of the best-known apps and games look and feel on Apple’s latest flagship phone.

Andrew’s favorites are as follows:

Google has begun updating its most popular apps with iPhone X support, too.

YouTube for iOS, for instance, was updated this morning with fullscreen support on iPhone X (when watching a video in fullscreen mode, pinch zoom to fill up the entire screen).

Google Earth for iOS now has native display support for iPhone X (its also gained multitasking support on iPad) and it really looks immersive on that gorgeous 5.8-inch OLED panel.

    The notch is not too bad on the phone, however it would have been nicer if the notch wasn’t there. That way you get the whole picture/video. A beautiful, nice, rectangular photo/video. 🙂
    But I get it, you need to house the components somewhere, where at the same time you’re using majority of the screen.

    I feel like I have a iPhone SE. most apps (like this one) aren’t optimized for the iPhone X. My 5.8” display is useless. I have “bars” on the top and bottom of the display just like the iPhone 8 and plus except it reduces the viewing screen. Hope these apps get updated soon!

      Chill out dude lol they’re coming. Apps that aren’t updated yet don’t like bad at all though. The deep blacks of the OLED display make it just blend in when apps aren’t full screen.

    What screen protector is that? I like the matte finish, less fingerprints. Is it tempered glass?
