This week on the SyrupCast, Brad Shankar, Rose Behar, Sameer Chhabra, and Patrick O'Rourke discuss the iPhone X now that the team actually has one in the office, as well as theXbox One X.

Patrick, in an impressive feat of journalism, flew to New York this week to pick up the iPhone X for an initial impressions review he completed in less than 24 hours. The team discusses what it is like to use an Apple interface with no home button and the intricacies of Face ID, Apple's new facial recognition authentication system. 

Moving on the the other X product that dropped this week. Microsoft's Xbox One X has officially hit the shelves. The console, which boasts true 4K capabilities, is also capable of running previous Xbox One games, which ensures that consumers won't be left scrambling to buy all new games.
