    I have the 8+ and am on my 3rd one due to screen faults! This 8+ is being returned for refund and I am ordering the X.

    I went to the Apple store today during lunch to check out an X. Beautiful design. I then started to play around and look at website to see how they would look with the notch, check other apps, youtube, take photos and videos. I found that the notch isn't really an issue. But man do you lose so much screen real estate compared to the Plus models. Just odd. I have a 6s Plus that is starting to show its age (battery wise due to natural deterioration) and if I do replace it, it'll be with a Plus model down the road. Maybe if they have an OLED plus model next year or something, then I'll get it. I'd take an X if I win a contest or something though.

    Please don’t say “It’s not the X”.... The 8+ doesn’t take a backseat to anything!
    Tbh I think it’s quite better than iPhone X due to its bigger screen and better battery life

    I just hope Apple doesn’t stop producing the old school design with bringing the new X
    I love the home button and the form factor of the plus It works for me.

    You might be in for disappointment next year, though I wouldn't be surprised if they keep the 7/8 for another year for people like you that are having a harder time migrating.
    FWIW you do get used to the gestures pretty quickly, and the button seems foreign after a while!

    I came from Android and Samsung. I know it. Lol
    I was just saying I like iPhone form factor

    I am not interested in the X because I prefer Touch ID and also the price. That’s ridiculous. If I wanted I would get the Note 8 but I am over Sansung

    I'm hoping to upgrade from a 6s to an 8 Plus around Christmas. I've been a big fan of silver, but the gold model is so pretty. Did any of you get the gold, and could you share pictures? TY

    I have seen the gold. It’s pretty. It has white front. My new series 3 Watch is the gold. I will get gold if and when ready

    But I had nothing to do with fear of moving on. I buy almost ever new flagship every year across iOS and Android. The X for me wasn’t special and I didn’t like it at all. Went back to the 8 plus. Just because someone doesn’t like it doesn’t mean there afraid of change.

    Like I said I have had the Note 8. Pixel Xl 2, S8 plus, G6, Essential phone, Mi Mix and many others. Just don’t like the X.

    I have only owned one black phone. Back in the day with Blackberry. When I started with Samsung on the Note Series always had white face then got the blue Note 7 then the Note 5 because didn’t want to give up the Note series. It was gold. All that was left. It was the worse phone I had ever used. I am extremely careful with my devices. They always look new . That phone was my nightmare of phones. Hated it. Wouldn’t keep a charge and I was always charging it up. Ridiculous
    At the time of the Note 7 debacle I had been playing with the iPhone 7+ in the store. There were issues that kept me from jumping but then that was resolved. And the trade in on the Note 5 Verizon offered me just sweetened the temptation even more. Along with my brother telling me he never regretted dumping Android. So came my playing over to the dark side. I like the form factor on this design. I haven’t had the lag that the Note phone’s had. The X doesn’t do it for me because I don’t care about the talking emojis not Face ID.. that’s not impressing me. I really like Touch ID. It has been flawless .
    Almost a yr on my personal use with Apple and my conclusion is am here to stay. No issues with Mac Pro. Hated Windows 10.

    Love the white front so when I get it will be the gold to match my Series 3 Watch person. I wear silver jewelry but prefer gold and rose gold on phones. My iPad is silver. In a Logitech case. My Mac is silver. In a cool red case

    The move to glass really made the 8's really pop and look a lot better than the 6-7's series. Still glass backs are a risk for damage and the cost to repair without AppleCare+ is high so I opted for AppleCare+. I wished they had kept the Jet Black.

    My phone has a blue backing. Just kidding. Mine is silver covered with a gold protective case. Also purchased a silver mirror looking phone protector case.

    We did not have iphones when I was in school. And yes I did attend school in one old school building built near the early 1900s. Actually mobile phone were not even invented then.

    Verrrrry true. Also back then teachers were actually able to disiplin kids.

    Also another allowence was getting hit in the knuckles.

    I remember when kids talked during class teachers were allowed to out tape over the kids mouth. But, now the teacher would loose their job over that.
